Howard worked out with the Lakers' new starting five Tuesday during an afternoon practice at the Lakers' training complex.

The six-time All-Star center had surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back last spring. He hasn't committed to any timetable for his debut with the Lakers, who acquired him in a four-team trade in August.

Kobe Bryant says Howard looked as healthy as any other player. Pau Gasol also was impressed after going up against Howard during one-on-one drills.

Howard says he feels fine, but doesn't know if he's close to full health. He's hopeful he can play in a preseason game.
