Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker is frustrated by the lack of playing time he's seeing during the first-round series against the Boston Celtics. 

"I am human. I have a right to be frustrated," Parker told Stephen Watson of Wisconsin's WISN News 12's on Thursday. "I've waited two years for this."

During the Bucks's two playoff games against the Celtics, both losses, Parker has seen only 25 minutes of playing time and has scored just two points. He has one assist and four rebounds. 

Parker returned in January from an ACL injury he suffered in February 2017. He could test free agency this summer.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo addressed Parker's frustrations and said the team has to pull together and not focus on time, according to Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 

"It's not about playing time, it's not about minutes, it's not about nothing in the playoffs," Antetokounmpo told Velazquez. "It's about just winning."

"We've got to show up as a team and get this W," the forward continued. "I'm frustrated- I'm supposed to shoot the ball more...once we're all on the same page I think everything is going to be a lot easier for everybody to play."

The Bucks will play Game 3 on Friday night at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wis.
