Dwight Howard participated in the Los Angeles Lakers' morning practice session on Wednesday without any setback.

Howard looks healthy returning from offseason back surgery.

"I don't know when he's coming back or whatever," Mike Brown said. "As much as he's practicing, to me, he's back."

Howard followed Tuesday's 4-hour practice full of 3-on-3, 2-on-2 and one-on-one full-contact drills by going through Wedneday's morning session.

Howard was planning on sitting for the Lakers' afternoon 5-on-5 scrimmage.
