Kings vs. Lakers: Game time, TV schedule and more

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

The Lakers are still looking for their first preseason win of the season as they continue to add new parts to their system.

The Los Angeles Lakers will host the Sacramento Kings in a preseason game at the Staples Center at 9:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. The Lakers are still looking for their first win of the preseason, and could get it with a boost from a certain someone making his debut.

According to ESPN's Ramone Shelburne, center Dwight Howard could make his first appearance with the Lakers on Sunday, if he is cleared to play by the team's doctors. All that stands in his way is a shootaround Sunday morning. And, of course, the doctors' decision.

"I want to hopefully play in a couple of preseason games, or at least one," Howard said. "I think it's very important for myself, for the team. But if the trainers don't feel like I need to play right now, then I won't play. There's no rush."

Howard was acquired from the Orlando Magic in the blockbuster deal that sent Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers and Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets. But Howard hasn't played in a preseason game yet, due to his continuing recovery from a herniated disk that led to back surgery in April.

TV Schedule: NBA TV, 9:30 p.m. ET
