Howard expected to play against Denver
JAN 06, 2013 11:15a ET
Howard did not practice Saturday because of a sprained rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
He was injured Friday against the Clippers after Caron Butler fouled him. Howard returned to the game following a Lakers timeout.
Howard is averaging 17.4 points and 12 rebounds in his first season with the team.
The Lakers have a tough schedule this week, starting Sunday against a team ahead of them in the standings and continuing with back-to-back games in Houston and San Antonio on Tuesday and Wednesday.
They finish the week with a home game Friday against Oklahoma City.
