Jabari Parker is starting the third quarter on Wednesday for Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle).

In his halftime interview, assistant coach Stacey Augmon said Jabari will play "a lot" in the second half. Expect his numbers to trend up while Giannis is out.

Jabari Parker may not return to Milwaukee as a restricted free agent this summer, according to sources of Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

Woelfel isn't the most reliable source out there, but he is reportedly close to Parker, and he reports that Parker was "very, very close to being traded at the deadline." Parker's name has come up in trade rumors in the past, and while it'll ultimately be Milwaukee's decision as to where Parker winds up as they'll have the ability to match any contract he signs on the open market, it sounds like they may be willing to let him walk if he receives a max-offer.

Jabari Parker scored 15 points with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

He had some bounce in this game with two jams on John Collins and Mike Muscala (video in link below). The minutes continue to hang in the low 20s, but Parker is starting to produce more consistently. He's still not doing much on defense, so his upside is capped. He's been fun to watch lately, though.

Jabari Parker never got it going offensively vs. the Grizzlies on Monday, hitting 3-of-6 shots for six points.

The rest of his line wasn't much better with three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers. Parker's minutes are still floating around the lower 20s and he was only averaging 12.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.4 treys in his previous five games in March. He'll improve, but he's not a must-own player right now.
Mar 12 - 10:47 PM

Jabari Parker hit 5-of-8 from the field to finish with 12 points across 23 minutes in Friday's game against New York.

Parker also connected on 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line while adding five assists and four rebounds with just one turnover. He is averaging 12.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game over his five outings in the month of March. The five-game streak with 10 or more points is his longest since returning from his long-term knee injury.
Mar 9 - 11:05 PM

Jabari Parker scored 10 points in 25 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

He still seems to be stuck at the minutes limit in the mid 20s, and he didn't get key minutes late in this game. Part of that could be due to defensive play, but either way he should start to get closer to 30 minutes soon. Although, Parker isn't really doing much besides score with a few boards here and there, so he is likely just going to be a later-round fantasy guy going forward.
Mar 7 - 10:37 PM

Jabari Parker was a catalyst for the Bucks' home win on Sunday, coming off the bench with 13 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

Parker played only six minutes in the first half, for some reason, but interim coach Joe Prunty basically couldn't go without him after halftime. This was the first half of a back-to-back set, so perhaps his initial limitations were a medical precaution -- either way, he should be ready to roll for an important game in Indianapolis on Monday.
Mar 4 - 11:24 PM

Jabari Parker had seven points, four rebounds and four turnovers in 18 minutes vs. Detroit on Wednesday.

The headline here is that Parker was cleared to play in both games of a back-to-back set for the first time all season. It looks like his minute-limit remains in place (he maxed out at 27 minutes on Tuesday), but at least owners won't have to be quite as concerned about DNPs down the stretch. Milwaukee has two back-to-back sets left on the schedule -- Mar. 4-5 and Mar. 29-30.
Feb 28 - 11:09 PM

Jabari Parker will play in Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

This will be Parker's first back-to-back set of the year, although his minutes could be somewhat limited after he was out there for 27 minutes on Tuesday. That said, he's been hot over the past two with averages of 18.5 points, 5.5 boards, 2.0 triples and 1.5 dimes per contest on 54.2% shooting, so you might as well throw him out there in season-long settings.
Feb 28 - 6:14 PM

Jabari Parker is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

It looks like Parker could be playing in his first back-to-back set of the season today, which would be very encouraging for his rest-of-season outlook. His minutes have been steadily rising, and he's scored in double figures in his previous two outings, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do tonight. He tore the ACL in his left knee twice over a three-year span, so his play this season has really been nothing short of incredible.
Feb 28 - 1:39 PM

Jabari Parker had a season-high 19 points, five rebounds, an assist and two 3-pointers on 6-of-10 shooting in 27 minutes of Tuesday's three-point home loss to the Wizards.

Parker had 18 points, six boards and two 3-pointers on Sunday, and is starting to come on for the Bucks. He's only played in nine games this season, but has made it through five straight and has looked pretty good in his last four. The Bucks still have 22 regular-season games on the schedule with just two sets of back-to-backs remaining, so if all goes well, it's possible Parker will play in 19 or so. And if he keeps playing like he has over the last week, he can help fantasy owners in the playoffs, when the Bucks have a pretty attractive schedule, going four games in both Week 23 and 24.
Feb 27 - 11:04 PM

Jabari Parker scored a season-high 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one steal and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench.

The minutes were also a season-high for Parker, and he came up huge for the Bucks, but unfortunately, with the minutes cap, he wasn't able to help them during the overtime period. This was easily Parker's best game of the season thus far, but various restrictions will likely ensure that he won't be much more than a late-round guy this year.
Feb 25 - 6:33 PM

Coach Joe Prunty said that the plan is to keep Jabari Parker to "around 20 minutes" Friday vs. the Raptors.

Parker has appeared in six games this season, but has yet to log more than 20 minutes. He is averaging 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 0.7 steals in 17.6 minutes over those six contests. His playing time and production will eventually increase, but Parker currently has limited fantasy value due to his minutes cap.
Feb 23 - 12:20 PM

Jabari Parker scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

The Bucks still have a clear minutes cap on him and he didn't close this game out. Parker has been shooting jumpers with four shots outside of the restricted area tonight, and he's had some trouble getting clean looks from two-point range so far this season. Maybe he'll see more run after the break, but Parker's fantasy owners shouldn't have more than a top-75 ceiling the rest of the way. Hopefully, he can flirt with around top-100 value.
