Anthony Parker will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night when the Cavs open the second half of the season by hosting the Boston Celtics.

Parker has missed the last four weeks with a strained lower back. His last game came against the Celtics in Boston on Jan. 29. Scott gave Parker the option of starting or coming off the bench, but Parker deferred to Scott, who is electing to start him.

Scott said Monday Parker might be unavailable for the rest of the half once he is pulled from the game, but said Tuesday he would consult with trainer Max Benton before making a decision on minutes.
