Kobe Bryant and the Lakers will reportedly travel to Dwight Howard’s new home and face the Rockets for the first time since Howard’s departure on November 7 of next season.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
As Kobe Bryant rehabilitates his torn Achilles tendon, there will undoubtedly be a date circled on his and the Los Angeles Lakers’ schedule: A Nov. 7 trip to Houston to meet the Rockets and center Dwight Howard.
The NBA is expected to release the schedule in the next several days, but Yahoo! Sports has learned the Lakers and Rockets will meet for the first time within the season’s first week at Houston’s Toyota Center.
