Jabari Parker scored 22 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and one foul in 29 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.
He went right at the smaller Sean Kilpatrick throughout this game. Parker still hasn't quite turned the corner as a jump shooter, making just 35.6 percent of those on the year. Although before tonight., his added 3-pointers have bumped up his catch-and-shoot efficiency by 17.1 effective field goal percentage points compared to last year. He's going to be an offense force and should flirt with top-50 value. Dec 1 - 11:52 PM

Jabari Parker shot 3-of-8 from the field to finish Sunday's road win with nine points, seven rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It's the first time all season that Parker hasn't scored double-digit points, and he also went without any defensive stats for the second straight game. Those aren't lasting concerns and he's on pace for career-high numbers in almost every single category this season. Parker is returning top-60 roto value and shows no signs of taking his foot off the gas pedal.

Jabari Parker scored 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting vs. the Magic on Monday.

He bounced back from a slow start in the first quarter and added three boards, three assists, three steals and five(!) triples in 35 minutes. The five triples were a career high and he now has 15 3-pointers on the season -- he had a combined 13 triples in his first two years in the league. This team is going to be scary when Khris Middleton eventually returns.
Nov 22 - 12:41 AM

Jabari Parker hit 11-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 28 points, five boards, five assists and two steals in 37 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.

He's a rock star right now, averaging 22.2 points, 6.8 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and a 3-pointer on 44 percent shooting over his last five games. Wind him up and turn him loose every night the Bucks are playing.
Nov 20 - 12:40 AM

Jabari Parker scored 23 points against the Hawks on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one turnover.

He missed his only attempt from deep and has cooled off from long range. Since his four-trey game earlier this month, Parker has made just 21.4 percent from deep with averages of 21.4 points, 6.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.6 treys. He may not be able to hit one trey per game, but Parker looks like he'll have a big season.
Nov 17 - 12:09 AM

Jabari Parker was in attack mode during a 112-106 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday, scoring 33 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, no turnovers and three 3-pointers.

It was all on display tonight. Parker was killing his man off the dribble and now the threat of a 3-pointer makes him a very dangerous scorer. He's having himself a monster November, averaging 23.2 points, 6.4 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 treys on 51.7 percent from the field. Giannis Antetokounmpo said Parker could be an All-Star and he may be right.
Nov 10 - 11:17 PM

Jabari Parker scored 19 points in a 117-91 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals, one block and no turnovers in just 25 minutes.

That slow start is a distant memory. In his last four, Parker averaged 20.0 points, 5.5 boards, 1.5 dimes, 1.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 treys on 49.2 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. He has a good chance to be a top-50 player this year because he has established a terrific rapport with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak was effective with 17 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals and one block.
Nov 6 - 12:12 AM

Jabari Parker showed off his shooting touch with four 3-pointers against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring a total of 27 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one block and four turnovers.

He didn't make a single 3-pointer before the break last year, but the Bucks have been committed to him adding that to his game since the 2016 All-Star Game. Parker had a somewhat quiet start to the season in the first three, but he's turned in two 20-plus scoring games in a row. He could have a big season now that he's 100 percent healthy coming into this campaign.
Nov 3 - 11:05 PM

Jabari Parker scored 21 points with two rebounds in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans.

He had an empty stat line, but the points were a season high. Parker took off after the All-Star break last season, so his fantasy owners can expect much better lines moving forward. Sadly, we still haven't seen much improvement from the 3-point line, as he's just a combined 1-of-4 from beyond the arc through four games.
Nov 1 - 11:44 PM

The Bucks have exercised their option on Jabari Parker.

It's a no brainer from his rookie deal. Parker is having an eye-catching preseason, averaging 16.8 points, 6.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.8 treys. With Giannis Antetokounmpo set to run the offense and calling Parker an All-Star, good things should be coming for the third-year pro.
Oct 19 - 3:54 PM

Jabari Parker scored 21 points in 24 minutes on Saturday, adding six rebounds, one steal and one block.

He did not take any 3-pointers and lived around the basket, making 9-of-14 from the field. Parker also banged his head on the rim and needed to ice his face later in the game (video in link below). Parker is going to score a ton of points and should shoot the ball well, but he won't add much else.
Oct 8 - 11:47 PM

Jabari Parker scored 13 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

He had one 3-pointer in the right corner tonight, which matches his total for all of last season in that spot. Parker clearly worked on his perimeter game and the Bucks will absolutely need him to be at least a threat from there without Khris Middleton (hamstring). Giannis Antetokounmpo thinks Parker could be an All-Star, so he should be getting the ball from him a ton. Parker doesn't have the biggest upside, but he's a decent pick in the middle rounds.
Oct 3 - 11:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo said Jabari Parker will be an All-Star this year.

It's not that wild of a thought. The Bucks are really going to need a lot out of Parker, especially with Khris Middleton (hamstring) expected to miss most of the season. After the break last year, Parker played 80 percent of his minutes next to Antetokounmpo and Antetokounmpo will run the offense, so this is good to hear for Parker. What's more, he did get a handful of minutes at small forward late in the year. With some talk of Parker adding more treys, he might have success in that spot. He's a very interesting pick in the middle rounds of drafts.
Sep 26 - 3:27 PM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd said that Jabari Parker has looked "amazing" in workouts this summer.

"He's having a great summer," Kidd said. "His workouts have been off the charts. Physically he looks amazing. His spirit is very high and his hard work is paying off." Kidd also said that Parker is working extremely hard on his 3-pointers and went on to say that he has the potential to be a superstar and one of the best players in the world. Parker will likely cost fantasy owners a mid-round pick after averaging 18.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals after the All-Star break and the promise of a 3-point shot is alluring.
Jul 10 - 11:04 AM

In an interview on NBATV, coach Jason Kidd said Jabari Parker is working extremely hard on his 3-pointers.

Kidd said Parker's focus is to expand his range this summer. He only attempted 0.1 treys before the break last year, but he upped it to 1.0 after the break. The Bucks started playing him at small forward more as the year went on, so that might be the plan with Thon Maker in the fold. He could be a mid-round pick with some upside.
