But Parker, who tore his ACL in December, didn’t play in the preseason.
It doesn’t seem Milwaukee was merely being cautious with its exhibition games, either.
The rookie second-year forward will also apparently miss the Bucks’ regular-season opener against the Knicks tomorrow.
Parker was not expected to be ready for the opener but could make his season debut in early November.
“Nothing to be said; next guy up,” Kidd said.
Milwaukee could go smaller with Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo each sliding down a position for a portion of the game. Chris Copeland could get a bigger role as a stretch four. John Henson could play power forward and spend more time with Greg Monroe than behind him.
Jason Kidd has options.
