Jabari Parker reportedly suffered a "slight" ACL tear, and he won't have surgery for at least a week as they're waiting for the swelling in his knee to subside.
Parker remains out for the season, and we wish him a speedy recovery. The Bucks have been bit by the injury bug hard this season with Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle), Ersan Ilyasova (nose), and John Henson (foot) all on the injury report, but those are the guys that will be asked to pick up the slack with Parker sidelined. Antetokounmpo is being listed as questionable for Thursday, but he'll be a nice plug-and-play option if he can give it a go. Stay tuned. Dec 18 - 3:04 PM

Jabari Parker is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.

This is brutal news for the promising rookie and we wish him nothing but the best. Parker will finish his rookie season with averages of 12.3 points, 5.5 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 30 minutes per game. Outside of keeper leagues, Parker can be cut across the board while Giannis Antetokounmpo will see an increase in his minutes and should be owned in all leagues.

Jabari Parker (knee) has left the Bucks on their current road trip to return to Milwaukee where he'll get an MRI.

We'll be awaiting the results of his MRI, and will pass along updates as soon as they become available. The Bucks don't return to Milwaukee until Dec. 23, so Jabari could be sidelined for the rest of the week. Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to get plenty of opportunity as long as Jabari is out, and Ersan Ilyasova (nose) will be a name to watch when he's able to return to the rotation. Stay tuned.

X-rays on Jabari Parker's left knee came back negative, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

This doesn't mean we're out of the woods just yet as Parker will still have an MRI on what is currently believed to be a knee strain on Tuesday. If Parker is forced to miss extended time, Giannis Antetokounmpo would become a must-own player in all fantasy leagues while Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova (nose) would also see a boost to their minutes.

Jabari Parker suffered a knee sprain on Monday and will not return.

Based on his demeanor, Parker is looking at a long period of time on the sidelines. He was on the court for a while and couldn't put any weight on his leg. The team will give him an MRI tomorrow. Giannis Antetokounmpo should be owned in all leagues while Ersan Ilyasova is a good bet to start once he's back.

Jabari Parker suffered a non-contact knee injury against the Suns on Monday.

Not good. His knee buckled and he could not put any weight on his leg. Parker was also shaking his head as he was being carried. We'll keep you posted.

Jason Kidd praised Jabari Parker's performance after battling Blake Griffin in Saturday's win over the Clippers.

"I don't judge on first or second (halves)," Kidd said. "I just look at the complete game and I thought he did a great job against one of the top players in the world in Blake (Griffin)." Griffin had just 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting in 39 minutes, while Parker had 12 points and five rebounds on 6-of-11 shooting. Parker didn't score in the second half, but Kidd was pleased with the rookie's performance. Expect some inconsistencies to continue, but Parker is trending in the right direction.

Jabari Parker slowed down in a loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday with eight points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

Chandler Parsons turned him into a pretzel a couple times and it's not quite clear why his minutes were down so much. Parker did play a whopping 38 minutes on Tuesday, so maybe his coach didn't want to burn him out since back-to-backs aren't really a thing at Duke. Parker should be better over the weekend.
Dec 4 - 12:24 AM

Jabari Parker made 11-of-15 FGs to finish Tuesday's game with 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 38 minutes of action vs. the Cavaliers.

Parker fell one point shy of his season-high and has now scored double-digit points in eight of the Bucks' past 10 games. He's averaging a solid 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals through his first 18 NBA games and has lifted himself into 12-team value. Don't hesitate to claim him if he's still available on your waiver wire.

Jabari Parker made 13-of-14 from the line against the Rockets on Saturday, finishing with 19 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

His energy was probably the highest it's been in an NBA game and he obliterated his career average of just 2.3 attempts from the line per game. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from Parker because the Bucks could really use some help at the line as the 25th-ranked team in makes per game. Like most rookies, Parker should improve.
Nov 30 - 12:35 AM

Jabari Parker posted a low-level line in Friday's win over the Pistons, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 26 minutes.

Parker has upped his season-long value into late-round territory over the past week and that makes him a nice stash/hold.
Nov 29 - 12:27 AM

Bucks rookie Jabari Parker returned to double-digits on Tuesday, scoring 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a home win vs. Detroit.

He added nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 27 minutes of action, and continues to return steady but unremarkable top-175 fantasy value. His minutes should rise as the season progresses, making him a good guy to target before he gets on a roll. Bucks writer Andrew Gruman pointed out an odd stat during the game, which is worth keeping an eye on -- Parker has made 22-of-30 free throws on the road this season, but he's just 0-of-6 at home.
Nov 25 - 10:56 PM

Jabari Parker scored six points on 3-of-11 from the field against the Wizards on Saturday with five rebounds and two steals.

He looked good in his past couple games, but Parker is a rookie after all. His fantasy owners should expect him to have some down games in the next couple months, but at least the Bucks are committed to him.

Jabari Parker was the only Bucks player to truly survive Friday night's 39-point loss to the Raptors, scoring 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one three in 27 minutes.

Believe it or not the game wasn't as close as the score entailed. Larry Sanders went for eight and five in 21 minutes, Brandon Knight was held to 11 points, two rebounds, two assists and a three, O.J. Mayo was held scoreless in nine minutes, and Ersan Ilyasova scored 14 points with two threes in 21 minutes off the bench. Owners need to ignore this game for evaluation purposes, but it was nice to see Parker have a versatile line for once. He's heating up.
Nov 21 - 11:02 PM

Jabari Parker scored a career-high 23 points against the Nets on Wednesday in a triple-overtime win to go with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals.

He made 8-of-13 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line. Parker is taking less 3-pointers these days, which is probably a good sign because he's made just 21.4 percent from beyond the arc on the season. He'll be inconsistent, but his fantasy owners can expect him to get it going as the year goes on.
