CLEVELAND (AP) -Cleveland Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the Los Angeles Clippers after missing 13 games with a broken left ankle.
Ilgauskas has not played since Dec. 30. He originally injured his ankle on Dec. 10 at Philadelphia. He tried to come back early but had continued soreness and swelling and an MRI revealed a fractured bone.
The Cavaliers went 9-4 without their 7-foot-3 big man, who is averaging 13.8 points and 7.1 rebounds.
