The Bucks have assigned Jabari Parker (knee) to their G-League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, on Monday.
The Herd are scheduled to practice on Monday and Tuesday so that’ll be the reason for assignment. He’s getting closer to a return and any additional practice he can get will be highly beneficial. It may take Parker a while to get rolling so he won’t provide value right away, but he’s worth owning in formats that allow owners to stash.
Update: More confirmation coming in that a February return is still in the cards.
Spoke to @JabariParker for a few minutes. Main takeaways:
-Not planning on playing in a G-League game for now
-Felt good to return to 5v5 to see where he is condition-wise (Not where it needs to be yet as expected)
-Not cautious at all with knee
-Still eyeing @Bucks return in Feb
