Jabari Parker ended up missing the final three games of the season because of a sprained left knee, finishing with averages of 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 threes on .493 from the field.
Parker was mostly healthy this year and the bulk of his absences came when the Bulls moved him out of the rotation. He was a predictably hollow fantasy producer but the two woeful teams he played for allowed him to go hunt for buckets. Parker really performed well after being traded to the Wizards, as he shot a blistering .523 from the field and .613 from 2-point range. Hopefully he takes the hint and does most of his damage inside the arc going forward. Parker’s stat set remains questionable but he was able to grind out top-120/160 per-game value in 8/9-cat leagues, as well as top-130/160 total value.

The Wizards have ruled Jabari Parker (left knee sprain) out for Tuesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.
Bobby Portis, Troy Brown Jr, Jeff Green, Devin Robinson and Sam Dekker will again all look to pick up the minutes left behind in Parker's absence. With the Celtics not playing any of their regular starters, the former three are all DFS value plays tonight.

Jabari Parker (left knee sprain) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Tuesday.
Parker has missed the last two games, but did go through a pregame warmup prior to Sunday's game. It doesn't look like he intends to shut it down, and if he could play he'd be in line for a nice game against Boston's bench squad. If Parker is unable to suit up, Jeff Green, Sam Dekker and Ian Mahinmi should get more minutes out of the frontcourt. Outside of Green there's nobody that would rise to relevance.

The Wizards are ruling Jabari Parker (left knee sprain) as out for Friday's game against the Spurs.
A tough blow for Parker who has had knee problems in the past. With only two games remaining after Friday and nothing to play for, we've likely seen the last of Parker this season, and potentially in a Wizards uniform. Bobby Portis, who has been a top-20 9-cat player this past week, just got another bump in value. Jeff Green could get back in the rotation with this news and is worth a look in deeper leagues, while Sam Dekker is a decent streaming option as well.

Jabari Parker (left knee sprain) will not return vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.
This is the same knee that he tore his ACL, so there are obviously high concerns surrounding this one. We'll wait to see if we get an update on his status later tonight. In his absence, Bobby Portis will be heavily relied on to close out the year.

Jabari Parker stayed hot against the Nuggets on Sunday, with 20 points and three steals on 8-of-16 shooting in 31 minutes of action.
He added six rebounds, one assist, one block and one triple to the box score. Parker has been the second-best fantasy player on the Wizards over the past month behind Bradley Beal, and is locked in for middle-round value for the remainder of the season. Bobby Portis, who got traded to the Wizards with Parker, had an off night with just two points and nine rebounds on 1-of-9 shooting. Portis is still a solid late-round play for the final stretch of the season.

Jabari Parker put up 28 points and a career-high 15 rebounds on 9-of-16 shooting in a win over the Suns on Wednesday.
If Parker was on the Wizards for the entire season, there is a real chance that he could have been in the running for Sixth Man of the Year. Since joining the Wizards, Parker is averaging 15.3 points and 7.5 rebounds on 53.6-percent shooting in 27.7 minutes per game. He should see a ton of minutes throughout the final stretch of the season and should be locked into all lineups.

Jabari Parker dropped a dud on Thursday night with six points on 3-of-11 from the field against the Nuggets.
Parker added eight rebounds and three assists in his 22 minutes. He had hit double-figures in 11 straight games before tonight and deserves some slack as a middle-round value over the last little while, though tonight does illustrate our issues with his stat set overall. It also needs to be noted that Thomas Bryant started and moved Bobby Portis over to the four, which could squeeze Parker's playing time going forward.

Jabari Parker put up 28 points on 11 -of-18 shooting with six rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes in an overtime loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
He made three triples in five attempts and added one steal and two blocks to the box score. He has shot the ball really well since coming to the Wizards and has been the second-best fantasy player on their roster behind Bradley Beal. He is a solid middle-round value despite coming off the bench as he is seeing starter minutes and thriving with this team.

Jabari Parker double-doubled in Friday’s home loss to the Hornets, scoring 17 points (no 3s) to go with 11 rebounds, four assists and a turnover in 34 minutes off the bench.
Parker has gotten a lot of run since being traded to the Wizards and has been a standard-league play. He’s been even better over his last two weeks with top-70 value in 9-cat. Trevor Ariza also had a nice game with 10 points, two 3s, eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and four turnovers.

Jabari Parker stayed hot on Monday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with four boards, four dimes and three 3-pointers.
Parker has scored in double figures in six consecutive games now but he's still outside the top-100 in fantasy value because of his lack of stats elsewhere. He's an empty points guy who can be viewed as a streamer.
