08:08 AM ET 09.27 | Twice now in September, with the first coming on Sept. 13, we've learned of the official Dwight Howard injury update from the Lakers staff. On Wednesday afternoon, Howard continued to make progress. ... Assistant coaches Darvin Ham and Chuck Person went through low post moves with the six time All-Star center, with Howard adding some shooting from the paint and the free throw line. Howard dropped in a high percentage of his patented baby hooks with either hand, spinning either to the baseline or the middle depending on Ham's defense, and showed his quick first step getting to the hoop when Ham closed out. The team continues to stress that no timetable has been determined for Howard's return, but allowed that there have been no [setbacks].

This isn't news. All that it is saying is that Howard is still going through rehab and working on what he's allowed to work on.
