Parker will come off the bench during Sunday's game against the Hornets. Parker is being replaced by O.J. Mayo in the starting lineup, which is set to feature Jerryd Bayless, Mayo, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greg Monroe. Parker is averaging just 9.0 points and three rebounds this season and due to his recent struggles, coach Jason Kidd is hoping a move to the bench fuels some further production for the Bucks Sunday. Considering Parker is one of the Bucks' best assets for the future, his stay on the bench could be short-lived.
Parker (foot) will start Thursday's game against the Cavaliers, CF Gardner of the Journal Sentinel reports. Parker suffered a sprain in his right foot over the weekend and was initially expected to sit out three games, beginning with Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards. While he did not make the trip to D.C. with the team, he flew to Cleveland on Wednesday night and will play Thursday after missing just one game. Parker will return to the starting lineup, meaning Jerryd Bayless will shift back to the bench.
Parker (foot) has full intentions of playing against the Cavaliers on Thursday night, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times reports. Parker was diagnosed with a left mid-foot sprain on Monday and was initially believed to be out through Saturday. However the discomfort and swelling caused by the injury must have decreased enough to a point where Parker now feels comfortable enough to play. This is great news for the Bucks, as they look to go up 2-0 against the Cavaliers this season. If it turns out Parker isn't able to go, John Henson and Johnny O'Bryant could see more minutes.
Parker (foot) may be able to return for Thursday's game in Cleveland, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times reports. Originally expected to miss the Bucks' impending three-game road trip due to a mid-foot sprain, Parker could only miss one contest if the discomfort and swelling in the region decrease enough in the coming days. Expect the Bucks to clarify his status in advance of Thursday's outing, but if he fulfills the original expected absence, he won't return until Monday's tilt against the Pistons.
Parker will be out at least three games with a mid-foot sprain, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports. This obviously is not good news for Parker who was trying to work his way back into game shape from an ACL injury sustained last season. He did not travel with the team on their three game road trip, which would indicate his earliest return date would be Nov. 23 versus Detroit. He had played in five of ten games for Milwaukee this season, including 30 minutes of action on Saturday versus Cleveland. He's currently averaging 7.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.4 steals in 22 minutes per game.
