Bucks general manager John Hammond announced that rookie forward Jabari Parker (knee) underwent successful surgery today to repair his left ACL injury.

Parker is expected to miss the rest of the 2014-15 season as he recovers and rehabilitates his left knee and a timetable for his return will be established at a later date. We'll update Parker's progress as more information becomes available, but he can be safely dropped in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 6 - 10:13 AM

Jabari Parker entered Monday's knee surgery with a confident mindset, and he's eager about his "journey."

"I'm pretty enthusiastic because this is a journey that will probably build me for the future and help in my career," Parker said. "I'm getting a better understanding of how the body works and the muscles. I just have to take the time out now so I can play as long as possible." Parker plans to work on himself, and it seems like his head is in the right place as he goes under the knife.
Jan 5 - 1:36 PM

Jabari Parker (knee) is likely to undergo surgery on Monday, and if all goes well he will be looking at a recovery time of around 9 months.

He had to postpone his surgery until the swelling went down in his knee, so there is no cause for concern here. Parker is expected to make a full recovery, but we will track his progress closely every step of the way. If all goes well, this current timetable will give him a shot to play at the beginning of next season and we wish him all the best as he rehabs his knee.
Jan 3 - 9:36 AM

Jabari Parker gave himself a "C" for his performance in his rookie season.

"I don’t think that I did too well," Parker said. "I have the future to make up for it." While he is being a little too hard on himself, he should be able to come back even stronger next season and he is expected to make a full recovery. He finished his season with averages of 12.3 points, 5.5 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 30 minutes per game. Parker is expected to have surgery this week as soon as the swelling goes down, and we will continue to pass along updates as needed.

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.

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.

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.
