CHICAGO (AP) San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker returned to the lineup Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls after missing a game because of a bruised left knee.
The seven-time All-Star did not play at Minnesota on Tuesday night after knocking knees with a Milwaukee Bucks defender the previous night. He started against the Bucks after missing two games with a thigh contusion.
Parker came into Thursday averaging 9.4 points and 4.4 assists.
Chicago's Doug McDermott returned to the rotation after missing nearly a month because of a concussion.
