 SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant is working hard to get back on the court and not wasting any time thinking about Dwight Howard.
Bryant says his surgically repaired Achilles' tendon is ``progressing faster than anybody expected,'' though he won't start shooting again until next month.
He is holding his annual youth basketball camp at UC Santa Barbara this week.
Last week, he joined the Lakers in their meeting with Howard, who eventually chose Houston instead of re-signing in Los Angeles.
Bryant says Wednesday he doesn't know why Howard left.
He says: ``You think once a guy decides to go someplace else I'm going to waste my time trying to figure out why that happened?''
