  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley confirmed that he is "ready to go" for the NBA restart in Orlando after rehabbing from a left foot sprain.

    It was previously reported in early July that the Kings' training staff believed that Bagley would be available for game action soon and this report confirms that Bagley will in fact be available for the league resumption. Bagley has yet to live up to the hype of the second overall pick in 2018 as he has only been able to play in 75 out of a possible 146 games (51.3 percent). It is unclear what role Bagley will have in Orlando but it appears that his injury woes are behind him and we will learn more about his ability during the league resumption. Bagley's return would likely cut into the playing time of Nemanja Bjelica, Harry Giles, Jabari Parker and Harrison Barnes.

    Jabari Parker may have violated the NBA's COVID-19 protocol by playing tennis after testing positive for COVID-19.

    It was reported on Wednesday that Parker tested positive for COVID-19 "several days ago" and was quarantining in Chicago. Saturday, TMZ reported that he was playing tennis in Chicago. Ben Stinar clarified with a report later in the day that Parker had finished his quarantine before playing tennis. Although Parker may have completed his quarantine, the league's COVID-19 protocol states that a player must avoid exercise training for two weeks after the first positive test or when the symptoms reside, whichever date is later. It will be key to know when Parker tested positive for COVID-19 in determining whether or not he violated protocol. The Kings made a statement saying "We are aware of the report and are gathering additional information." There are more details that need to be uncovered, but the NBA will likely get the answers they need and if Parker did violate protocol, it is likely they will penalize him.

    Jabari Parker has completed his in-house quarantine after a positive diagnosis with the COVID-19 virus.

    Parker, who was playing tennis in his hometown in Chicago is ready to resume basketball activities when able. Still, the Kings have had many players test positive recently, putting in question if the team can show up at Orlando at 100 percent health to resume the 2019-20 season.

    Jabari Parker tested positive for COVID-19 "Several days ago."

    Parker said that he self-isolated in Chicago when he tested positive and remains there. He said that he is "progressing in my recovery and feeling well." He plans to still play in Orlando when the NBA season resumes and should have time to fully recover with the season restart still over a month away. There are likely to be more positive tests in the NBA as teams are in the process of testing their players to prepare for the resumption in Orlando.

    Jabari Parker will sit out on Sunday vs. the Raptors due to a stomach illness.

    Parker has played one game since January 2 and it is difficult to imagine him getting anywhere close to the mid-round value he posted at the start of the season with the Hawks. At this point, he is an option if you have nobody better for your IL spot, but the Kings have plenty of options to choose from and it is difficult to figure out how useful Parker will be as a fantasy prospect when he's healthy. If he returns with a heavy load he could be a streamer in standard leagues.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder impingement) debuted for the Kings on Thursday but was unremarkable in his 15 minutes off the bench, tallying just four points, four rebounds and two assists.

    While Parker is not a high-impact player in fantasy, we should expect to see those minutes rise as he gets his legs back. And given that Marvin Bagley III's timetable is in weeks, Parker may be worth a streamer once he's closer to 100 percent.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder impingement) expects to make his Kings debut on Thursday.

    If Parker plays against the Grizzlies tomorrow, it'll mark his first game since January 2. He should factor into the forward mix in Sacramento but is not a standard-league option until we see what his typical workload might look like.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder strain) will not make his debut on Wednesday vs. the Mavs.

    Parker will have to wait until after the All-Star break to debut for the Kings. It is unclear what kind of role Parker will have when he is healthy enough to play so he is best left for watch-lists. It is unlikely that he once again is a streamable standard league asset like he did earlier in the season with the Hawks.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder strain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Mavs on Wednesday

    Parker has missed the past couple weeks dealing with the strain and it wouldn't be shocking to see his new team give him another week off over the break to get an extended rest. If Parker can play, he could carve out a role in the Kings frontcourt rotation with Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes still sidelined.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) will not play on Monday or Wednesday.

    He'll be unavailable through the All-Star break according to Luke Walton. Nemanja Bjelica will be busy without Holmes, Alex Len or Jabari Parker cleared to play on Monday.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder strain) will not face the Bucks on Monday.

    Parker has missed roughly two weeks with the injury. Meanwhile, Nemanja Bjelica has been thriving in the Bucks' frontcourt of late.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder strain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Bucks.

    Marvin Bagley possibly missing the rest of the reason explains why the Kings made a move on Parker. He's had injury problems throughout his career and it does not look like his role will be big enough to have standard league value even when healthy.

  • Richaun Holmes

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Bucks.

    Holmes was appearing to be closer to returning, but as the All-Star week approaches it seem increasingly more likely that he will sit out until then. Nemanja Bjelica will continue to handle a heavy workload while Holmes, Jabari Parker and Alex Len are out.

    Jabari Parker and Alex Len are being traded to the Kings in exchange for Dewayne Dedmon.

    Parker (right shoulder impingement), once healthy, should see minutes backing up Marvin Bagley III. He will eat into the value of Nemanja Bjelica for sure as both reserve fours will be competing for minutes in Sactown.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker (shoulder) has progressed to doing non-contact workouts with the team, but he will miss at least one more week of action.

    The Hawks are heavily rumored to be in the market for an impact big man, so there is a real chance that when Parker comes back, it will be to backup John Collins. Parker is better left on the waiver wire for the second half of the season.
