Bucks' Jabari Parker on track to return before All-Star break

Kidd firms up status of star

Prior to Wednesday's game, Bucks head coach Jason Kidd mentioned to reporters that the team is pegging Jabari Parker's return for the week before the all-star break. 

"He’s doing great," Kidd said. "Again, he’s doing everything; he’s practicing, he’s participating with the Herd. So, he’s getting a lot of basketball under his belt. Again, I think we’re about a month away from having him back."

The 22-year-old hasn't played since Feb. 8, 2017 after sustaining a second injury to his ACL and underwent surgery on Feb. 14, but Parker's path back to playing NBA games has progressed smoothly and quickly as of late.

On Jan. 3, Parker was recalled from the Bucks G-league affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, after playing in some practices and 5-on-5 action. 

Through bits and pieces of three seasons, Parker has averaged 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists while shooting 34 percent from 3-point range.
