Picked No. 2 overall in the 2014 draft, (Jabari) Parker, who played a year at Duke, is in the embryonic stage of trying to turn the Milwaukee Bucks around. It’s a project that could take years, but Parker has a firm grasp of where he is and what he needs to work on.

“It’s been all right,’’ Parker said. “I have to grow up. That’s what this is, more responsibility, which will keep me in balance. It’s been a real big learning curve for me. But I have to learn to play this game.

“I’m getting comfortable. Just learning a little more and getting adjusted to the spot that I’m playing. Ever since high school, that’s where [the spotlight] started. It helped me find the person I am and keep me balanced within the team.’’

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
