Parker is starting Thursday's preseason game against the Bulls, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Parker will enter the starting five in place of John Collins, who is unavailable due to flu-like symptoms. He's appeared in four exhibition games with Atlanta, posting averages of 10.5 points and 8.3 rebounds in 22.5 minutes per game.
Parker pitched in 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and nine rebounds in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 100-96 win over the Knicks.
Parker has always been able to score and he boasts enough size to make an impact on the glass. However, his effort defensively has never matched his enthusiasm for the offensive end. Perhaps this being the fourth stop in his career will force him to take a look in the mirror and make defense a priority going forward. Regardless, Parker might be able to make enough of an impact offensively off the bench that he becomes a low-end option in standard leagues.
Parker agreed to a two-year, $13 million deal with the Hawks on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
At this price, Parker is a fairly low-risk option for the Hawks, who were in need of additional depth at the power forward position. Parker, who recently had his $20 million team option declined by the Wizards, averaged 15.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in the 25 games he played with Washington. While he certainly is yet to live up to the expectations of being the No. 2 overall pick, Parker did show that he is still capable of being a productive rotation player in the NBA. While young star John Collins is expected to hold things down at the power forward position in Atlanta this season, Parker should be able to carve out a role off the bench for the Hawks.
Parker's $20 million team option for the 2019-20 season has been declined by the Wizards, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Parker will become an unrestricted free agent, but there is word that the Wizards may try to work out another contract with the 24-year-old forward. He appeared in 25 games with the Wizards last season, averaging 15.0 points and 7.2 rebounds. While he has yet to live up to the reputation of being a No. 2 overall draft pick, Parker has lost two years of development along the way as a result of a pair of ACL tears.
Parker (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Boston, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Parker is set to miss the final contest of the regular season due to a knee sprain. He averaged 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists over 64 games during the 2018-2019 campaign across stops with Chicago and Washington.
Parker (knee) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston.
Parker has missed the last two matchups due to a left knee sprain, and there's little reason to push him into game action at this point with the Wizards out of playoff contention. Even so, the Duke product may have a shot to take the floor in the season finale, depending on how he feels during morning shootaround.
Parker (knee) won't play Sunday against the Knicks.
Parker entered the day questionably due to a left knee sprain, and the Wizards have since decided to hold him out. He's set to miss his second consecutive matchup due to the injury, although he'll likely have a shot at returning in the final game of the regular season Tuesday against Boston.
Parker (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game aginst the Knicks.
Parker was held out of Friday's match with the Spurs due to a left knee sprain. Look for an update of his availability to come after shootaround Sunday.
Parker (knee) will not be available Friday against the Spurs, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Parker departed Wednesday's game after only 12 minutes of action with a sprained left knee, and with little on the line for the Wizards, he'll be held out Friday and could be in danger of missing the rest of the season.
Parker (knee) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Bulls.
Parker suffered a left knee sprain in the first half of Wednesday's game. It's unclear the severity of the injury at this time, and more information should come out following Wednesday's game. At this time, he should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.
Parker is questionable to return to Wednesday's game against the Bulls after suffering a left knee sprain.
Parker suffered the injury during the second quarter of Wednesday's game. While the injury doesn't appear to be overly serious, there's a chance he'll be unable to return Wednesday with an official designation likely coming after halftime. If he's unable to return, Parkers availability for Friday's tilt with the Spurs will also be in question.
Parker finished with 20 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, three steals, one assist, and one block in 31 minutes during Sunday's 95-90 victory over Denver.
Parker had another impactful game Sunday, scoring 20 points as the Wizards upset the Nuggets. He has scored in double-digits in four straight games, shooting at least 50 percent in all four. Parker has had an indifferent season and his future is certainly far from clear. The Wizards may elect to pick up his player option but that would seem unlikely at this stage. The fact it is only one year may work in his favor but at this stage, predicting where he falls in fantasy drafts is next to impossible. His outlook for the rest of this season is more assured and he should be viewed as a serviceable option in most formats.
Parker totaled 28 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 15 rebounds, and three assists in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 124-121 victory over Phoenix.
Parker was outstanding Wednesday, pulling down a season-high 15 rebounds to go with 28 points, matching his season-high in that category. He has been a much-improved player since joining the Wizards and has even chipped in some defensive numbers. It is unlikely the Wizards pick up his contract for next season and so his role remains unclear. For now, he is a solid enough standard league player, especially for those in need of points and rebounds.
Parker managed 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes in the Wizards' 124-106 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.
Parker was the offensive leader of the second unit, and his point total actually checked in second on the night only to that of Bradley Beal's for the Wizards. The 24-year-old had turned in a pair of rare six-point tallies in the prior two contests, so Tuesday's resurgence was back in line with the 11 straight double-digit scoring efforts he's produced prior to the aforementioned pair of outliers. Parker's locked-in allotment of minutes in the mid-20s at minimum keeps him highly viable across all formats in the fantasy postseason.
Parker produced 28 points (11-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal over 38 minutes in the Wizards' loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
Parker led his team in scoring for the second straight game, and he added some quality stats across the board. His recent play has made him an extremely valuable fantasy player, with averages of 18.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists over his last nine games.
Parker scored a team-high 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three steals, an assist and a block in 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 116-95 loss to the Jazz.
In addition to leading the Wizards' offense, Parker also paced the team in boards. The 24-year-old forward is now averaging 17.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.2 three-pointers and 0.8 steals through 10 games in March.
Parker scored 17 points (7-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes off the bench during Friday's 116-110 loss to the Hornets.
It's his first double-double as a Wizard, and his sixth of the season. Parker has been giving Washington a solid frontcourt presence on its second unit, averaging 14.1 points, 7.2 boards, 3.1 assists, 1.0 three-pointers and 0.9 steals in 15 games since being traded from the Bulls.
Parker finished Wednesday's game against the Magic with 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds, an assist and a steal over 28 minutes.
While the Wizards didn't get much production from their starting five, Parker was one of three players off the bench who scored in double digits. The Duke product narrowly missed securing a double-double in a 100-90 victory at home. Parker figures to remain in a bench role moving forward despite averaging 17.4 points along with 7.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists in his previous five matchups.
Parker produced 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 24 minutes in the Wizards' win over the Kings on Monday.
Parker continued his solid play with Washington, proving to be a valuable asset off the bench. Over his last six games, Parker has averaged 15.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
Parker tallied 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal over 26 minutes Friday against the Hornets.
Parker continues to come off the bench, but he's been producing at the rate of a starter of late. He's averaging 15.6 points, 7.8 boards and 3.0 helpers over his previous five contests and is logging 24.8 minutes during that stretch. Parker will aim to ride this high level of play into a favorable matchup Saturday against the Timberwolves.
