WASHINGTON - Los Angeles Lakers All-Star guard Kobe Bryant showed up at the shooting drills on Sunday before the Lakers' home game against the Detroit Pistons.

Kobe had practiced with his teammates on Saturday, and that was his first team practice since he tore his left leg Achilles tendon seven months ago.

However, he didn't take part in the shootaround session before the game.

Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni said people should stay cautious on Kobe's return.
