SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has been cleared to play after missing the past month with a broken hand.

The Spurs said Parker will be in uniform Tuesday night at Sacramento. He has not played since breaking his shooting hand March 6 in a win at Memphis.

Parker's return comes after backup point guard George Hill sprained his right ankle Sunday in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Hill has returned to San Antonio and will miss at least the next two games.

The Spurs have gone 11-5 without Parker, who is averaging 16.5 points.
