Come on basketball gods, can’t you go easy on the kid?
Jabari Parker looked like the Rookie of the Year until a torn ACL sidelined him for the majority of last season. He missed the start of this season and in the five games he played showed a little rust but was scoring 7.2 points a game on 48.6 percent shooting. But now an injury has sidelined him again.
It sounds like he will miss at least three games, maybe more. You know the Bucks will be cautious bringing him back.
The Bucks are off to a 5-5 start, but the defense that powered them to the playoffs last season has slipped this season — they are 27th in the league. The hope was they were getting healthy and would start to find their groove, but that plan has to go on hold for a little while.
