SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ John Stockton practiced with the Utah Jazz for the first time since having knee surgery six weeks ago.

Stockton, expected to return to the lineup by the middle of December, took part in shooting drills and some full-court work Tuesday at Westminster College.

The NBA career leader in assists and steals, Stockton is scheduled to accompany the team on a five-game road trip that begins Dec. 15 at Washington _ nine weeks after doctors removed damaged cartilage from his left knee.
