Jabari Parker (right shoulder impingement) will miss Monday's game against the Magic.
Parker's minutes had sunk into the teens with the return of John Collins. Some had been holding out hope that he and Collins could coexist in the Atlanta frontcourt, but the truth is that there isn't much to learn about that lineup combination since Collins is clearly the future for the Hawks at PF. Their future starter at center is probably not on their roster right now, so it doesn't make sense to prioritize getting Jabari more playing time if it means exposing Collins to foul trouble and possible injury by playing him out of position at the five. Drop Jabari with confidence.
