Parker to miss next 2 games with bruised sternum

By Jason Lloyd Published: April 6, 2012

Anthony Parker will miss tonight's game at the Toronto Raptors and Sunday's game at the New Jersey Nets after he suffered a bruised sternum in Wednesday's loss at Milwaukee.

Manny Harris will start in Parker's place.

Parker matched his career high with 27 points in Wednesday's loss. His injury further depletes a backcourt that is already without Kyrie Irving (bruised right shoulder) and Daniel Gibson (torn tendon in foot). 

The Cavs' remaining three healthy guards -- Harris, Donald Sloan and Lester Hudson -- have all spent considerable time this season in the Development League.

Harris will be making his first start of the season. He is averaging 4.7 points and 12 minutes in 12 games off the bench.

The Raptors are attempting to sweep the season series from the Cavs for the first time since the 2000-01 season.
