Giannis Antetokounmpo made it clear that he wants the Bucks to bring back Jabari Parker.
Jabari ain’t going nowhere," Antetokounmpo said. "He’s going to be here and he’s going to be ready for the next season." Parker will be a restricted free agent this summer and it's going to be interesting to see what his market is like after a tough campaign. He's one year removed from averaging over 20 points per game and will have the entire offseason to get back to full strength, so we'd expect the 23-year-old to command a monster deal. This is just one of the many tough decisions facing the Bucks as they will also be in the market for a new coach. Apr 30 - 10:20 AM

Jabari Parker was phenomenal on both ends of the floor during Sunday's Game 4 win, tallying 16 points, seven rebounds, two triples, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 25 minutes.

Parker wasn’t very good at all through the first two games of this first-round series, but he’s really picked up his play over the previous two games, churning out averages of 16.5 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 steals, 2.5 swats and just 0.5 turnovers per game on 54.5% shooting. Milwaukee's second-unit thoroughly outplayed Boston's, and Thon Maker was also impressive in the win, coming through with eight points, two boards, two treys, one assist, five blocks and one turnover over 31 minutes.
Apr 22 - 4:07 PM

Jabari Parker scored 17 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Celtics in Game 3 on Friday.

He wanted playing time, and he got it in this big win. Parker did get some minutes in garbage time, but the damage was already done with 17 points before the final five minutes. If John Henson (back) is out again, Parker should be able to find minutes in the upper 20s or even low 30s if he's hot.
Apr 20 - 11:57 PM

Speaking with reporters on Thursday, Jabari Parker expressed his frustration over his limited minutes in the postseason.

After closing out the regular season strongly, Parker has logged a total of just 25 minutes and scored only two points over the first two games of Milwaukee's first-round series. "I am human. I have a right to be frustrated," said Parker on Thursday. "I've waited two years for this." He also added that the only way to see the floor was to be on the coach's good side, and he wasn't there. We'll see if he see more minutes in Game 3.
Apr 20 - 9:23 AM

The Bucks are confident that Jabari Parker will bounce back in Game 2 after finishing Sunday's OT defeat with two points on 1-of-5 shooting in 15 minutes.

"He’s a talented player [and] we need him," said teammate Eric Bledsoe. "His emotions are going all over the place right now ... He’s just got to slow down." Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to see Parker be "more aggressive" in the series, but added that the Bucks have to do a better job getting him the ball where he's comfortable. It will be interesting to see how Parker responds in his second playoff game on Tuesday.
Apr 16 - 5:54 PM

Jabari Parker scored a team-high 25 points off the bench on Wednesday, going 9-of-15 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line.

Parker added five rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in just 24 minutes off the bench. He's hit another gear in April with 12+ points in every game, including a 35-point eruption vs. the Nuggets, and is peaking at an ideal time for the playoff-bound Bucks.
Apr 11 - 11:50 PM

Jabari Parker scored 16 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in a start against the Knicks on Saturday.

He subbed in for Giannis Antetokounmpo today, but it was likely more rest than anything. Parker will likely be back on the bench against the Magic on Monday.
Apr 7 - 10:10 PM

Jabari Parker made 6-of-21 from the field for 13 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

The Nets were terrific against Jabari with Brooklyn blocking him four times tonight. Parker was coming in fairly hot with efficiency, including his 35-point gem against the Lakers on Sunday, so this was a surprise against what is usually a soft defense. His playing time is soaring with 32, 31 and 35 minutes in his last three, so the minutes limit is a goner.
Apr 5 - 10:48 PM

Jabari Parker said his future with the Bucks is "uncertain" at the moment.

"Honestly, it’s uncertain," Parker said after a recent practice, in regards to his future in Milwaukee and his restricted free agency this summer. "I know that just looking from afar, [the Bucks] will be fine. But I just have to see what’s going to happen with my future, and that’s uncertain. But I know for them, they’ll be fine regardless. They’ve been doing well." As good as Parker is, and as impressive as his recovery from the second ACL tear has been, he's not really a perfect fit in Milwaukee, so the Bucks might let him walk if another team comes around with a max offer.
Apr 3 - 4:54 PM

Jabari Parker lit up Denver for a season-high 35 points on Sunday, making 14-of-23 shots with five 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, two steals and two assists in 39 minutes.

It was all for naught, as the Bucks fell 128-125 in overtime. Parker took over this game for stretches and the playing time was a stunner -- it's the first time all season that he's played more than 30 minutes in a game. It's unfortunate that his breakout came with just five games left on the schedule, but at least we're reminded of his sky-high potential when healthy. He'll face a stiffer defense vs. the visiting Celtics on Tuesday.
Apr 1 - 11:17 PM

Jabari Parker scored 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting Thursday, to go with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, three assists and zero turnovers across 25 minutes.

Parker had been struggling mightily over the past three games, and while it was nice to see him bust out of the funk tonight, it needs to be noted that he did most of his damage during garbage time. Parker has done an admirable job working his way back from the ACL tear, but he’s been too inconsistent this season to trust in most settings, particularly at this juncture in the fantasy season.
Mar 30 - 1:28 AM

Jabari Parker hit just 1-of-12 shots for a season-low two points in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

Parker had his moments on defense with three steals and a block to go with two assists and one rebound, but he'll want to forget about this one. He's been in a bad slump offensively, averaging 5.3 points over his last three games on a combined 7-of-28 shooting. The Bucks do play three more times this week, but Parker is a drop candidate if there's a hot free agent on your wire.
Mar 28 - 1:06 AM

Jabari Parker scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting in his return to the bench on Sunday, adding one 3-pointer, two rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 18 minutes.

Parker flopped through 30 minutes as a starter on Friday, but he really wasn't much better running with the reserves today. He's had a handful of solid games, but inconsistency has been an issue, so he's more of a low-end source of points in deep leagues.
Mar 25 - 6:48 PM

Jabari Parker will come off the bench on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is officially back after a one-game absence, so this is an expected move. Parker blew his opportunity in his last start, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shots in 30 minutes. In addition to Parker losing value, Shabazz Muhammad loses most of his streaming appeal.
Mar 25 - 1:56 PM

Jabari Parker flopped in his first start of the season on Friday vs. the Bulls, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shots.

The workload was there with 30 minutes, but he couldn't salvage his poor shooting line with just three rebounds, four assists and no defensive stats. Parker burned a lot of fantasy owners tonight because all the signs were pointing to a monster game, but we'd still recommend holding him for the time being. Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is expected back "sooner rather than later," but his status for Sunday's game is up in the air.
