Bucks' Jabari Parker does on-court work before game
Milwaukee Bucks rookie forward Jabari Parker participated in an on-court workout at the BMO Harris Bradley Center before Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls, the first time he has been seen doing so since having surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee in January.
[daily_cut.NBA] Parker sustained the injury in a Dec. 15 game against the Phoenix Suns when his knee buckled while driving to the basket. The 20-year-old forward will miss the remainder of the season, but no further timetable has been given for his recovery following his Jan. 5 surgery.
The No. 2 overall pick in last year's NBA draft, Parker appeared in 25 games before the injury and averaged 12.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in 29.5 minutes.
The Bucks entered Wednesday's game 36–38, sixth in the Eastern Conference.
