Cavaliers guard Anthony Parker is in the starting lineup for
Cleveland’s game against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night after
missing 12 games because of a lower back strain.
Parker, playing for the first time since Jan. 29, is averaging
six points in 18 games.
Celtics center Jermaine O’Neal missed his second straight game
with a sprained left wrist. He remained in Boston and will be
examined by doctors Wednesday.
Forward Brandon Bass, who has missed the last six games with a
sore left knee, and center Chris Wilcox, who didn’t play in the
final game before the All-Star break because of a strained right
adductor, are both available for Boston.
