MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Forward Jabari Parker will return Thursday night for the Milwaukee Bucks against Cleveland after missing a game because of a sprained right foot.

Coach Jason Kidd said in Cleveland that Parker would start against the Cavaliers.

Parker didn’t play in the Bucks’ first four games as the team eased him back from a torn left ACL injury that sidelined him for the last 4 1/2 months of the 2014-15 campaign.

The second overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft has played in five of 11 games this season, averaging 7.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22 minutes.

The Bucks also said that guard O.J. Mayo was ready to make his season debut after he missed time with a strained right hamstring.
