Jabari Parker played 21 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday with 10 points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover.
There was no word of an injury and he's not on a back-to-back today. Parker should start to see his minutes trend up, but he's not going to have too much of an upside. He's not a complete must-own player, but there's nothing wrong with owning him to see what happens and hope he can fill the stat sheet better in his second season. Nov 25 - 11:33 PM

Jabari Parker played just 21 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

He would've played more, but the Bucks were toast in the middle of the third quarter. Parker has some explosive moves in his arsenal already for the offensive side and he finally added his first steal of the season. He'll be more of a late-round player this season due to a lack of diversity on the stat sheet.

Jabari Parker will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

His status was never in doubt, but it's a great sign that he is in the lineup after logging a season-high 31 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Thursday despite coming off a foot sprain. He should see a similar workload moving forward, so feel free to get him in your lineup.

Jabari Parker played a season-high 31 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday with 14 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block.

He made 6-of-10 from the field and both free throws. Like teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo, Parker is eating around the rim, making 16-of-21 (76.2 percent) of his shots within three feet for 47.7 percent of his shot total. The bad news for his value is he hasn't done much else, hasn't attempted any treys and has just two makes from beyond 16 feet. Parker only has a mid-round ceiling this year and his name carries more value in most fantasy circles.

Jabari Parker (foot) will start against the Cavs on Thursday.

He'll join Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greg Monroe in the first unit. Jerryd Bayless will come off the bench, but should still see a bunch of playing time. Parker is looking at minutes in the mid 20s tonight and is still not a must-start player just yet.
Nov 19 - 7:20 PM

Jabari Parker (right foot soreness) said his foot injury behind him and will play Thursday night.

Parker will start against the Cavs on Thursday and said his foot injury is healed. "I had a little break," Parker said before adding that his foot healed quickly. Parker likely won't play more than 30 minutes on Thursday, so fantasy owners should lower expectations a tad on Thursday.

Jabari Parker (foot) traveled with the team and intends to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

The Bucks did rule him out for this game back on Monday, but he's apparently felt a lot better. Considering he's coming off a left ACL surgery this summer, the Bucks may want to be careful with Parker's left foot issue. If he's active, that would take minutes away from Jerryd Bayless, Johnny O'Bryant and Greivis Vasquez.
Nov 18 - 4:21 PM

Jason Kidd said that Jabari Parker is simply dealing with some soreness in his right foot, and he hopes to have him back on the court within "the next couple days."

"I think hopefully it's in a few days that he's back playing and then I think it's not a serious injury," said Kidd of Parker. "I think when you look at the things he's done up to this point, it's alright for him to be sore. And so hopefully he's back sooner than later. I think any time you have an injury or you're coming back, there are going to be parts of the body that are sore, and I think just his foot is sore and hopefully he's back in the next couple days." Parker's injury doesn't sound too serious, but the Bucks have made it clear they will be very cautious with him this season, so we'll consider Jabari doubtful for Thursday's game against the Cavs.
Nov 18 - 11:16 AM

Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said that he is hopeful that Jabari Parker (foot) will be able to join the team for Thursday's game vs. the Cavs.

After the Bucks ruled Parker out for the remainder of the road trip, we have now had two different reports that suggests he has a shot at suiting up on Thursday. This is a good sign that his foot injury is progressing, but we likely won't know more about his status until Wednesday's practice.
Nov 17 - 10:37 PM

Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times said that it's possible that Jabari Parker could return on Thursday vs. the Cavs if the pain and swelling subsides in his foot.

Take this report with a major grain of salt because the Bucks have already ruled out Parker for the remainder of the road trip which means the earliest we should see him would be on Nov. 23 against the Pistons. Head coach Jason Kidd also said that the Bucks will play it safe with Parker, so this report is probably way too optimistic.
Nov 17 - 6:47 PM

Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said the team is playing it safe with Jabari Parker (sprained right foot).

While Parker is targeting a Nov. 23 return, it sounds like the Bucks will take a cautious approach. "We'll see how he feels today and tomorrow and how the rest of this trip goes," Kidd said. "Hopefully everything is all right. He hasn't played for some time, so you're going to be sore a little bit. Maybe this is just him being sore." We'll keep an eye on Parker's recovery, but Johnny O'Bryant and John Henson will see an increase in minutes while Parker is out.
Nov 17 - 11:30 AM

Jabari Parker has been diagnosed with a sprained right foot and will not play in any of the Bucks' three games this week.

An MRI done on Monday revealed a talonvicular joint sprain, and this means that the earliest we will see him return to the court is on Nov. 23 against the Pistons. Parker just recently started to ramp up his workload because his knee has been responding well, and his minute limit was expected to increase to 30. This is obviously a huge blow for Parker and the Bucks, but hopefully he will be able to return next week. In the meantime, expect players such as Johnny O'Bryant and John Henson to step up in Parker's absence.
Nov 16 - 6:48 PM

Jabari Parker had season highs of 12 points and 30 minutes on Saturday, adding three rebounds and one assist.

He had a couple outstanding dunks and showed some nice agility. Parker should start getting close to 30 minutes per game, but fantasy owners aren't going to like him too much for standard leagues. He's not much of a stat-sheet filler with four of his five games resulting in no steals, blocks or threes. He hasn't taken any threes and his season high is one assist, too.
Nov 15 - 12:16 AM

Jabari Parker will be back in the starting lineup vs. the Cavs on Saturday.

He didn't play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets because it was the second night of a back-to-back set, but he should see around 25 minutes of action tonight and that number could grow to 30 by next week. He isn't a must-start player yet, but Parker's value is rising as his knee continues to progress.
Nov 14 - 6:53 PM

Jabari Parker (rest) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and Parker said that it was all a part of the plan. The Bucks increased Parker's minutes to 25 for Tuesday's game against the Celtics and he responded with eight points, eight boards, one assist and two steals. He will be very frustrating to own early on because of all the limitations, but he should start to reward his patient owners soon. Giannis Antetokounmpo may play some stretch four on Wednesday while John Henson and Chris Copeland should see some extra minutes as well.
