WASHINGTON (AP) -Center Andrew Bogut returned to the Milwaukee Bucks' starting lineup Monday night for the first time since Jan. 2.
Bogut scored eight of Milwaukee's first 17 points against the Washington Wizards.
After back spasms sidelined Bogut for four games, he returned to action as a reserve against Minnesota on Saturday.
``I'd like to not overplay him if I could, but not at the expense of losing. We want to win the game,'' Bucks coach Scott Skiles said before tipoff against Washington. ``I don't have any restrictions.''
