Parker tallied 18 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Sunday's 96-92 loss to the Knicks.
Parker scored a season-high 18 points, as the Celtics ran out their second unit for the majority of the contest. While this was a nice performance for the former rookie standout, his role is typically quite minimal, so we shouldn't expect to see this kind of production again anytime soon.
Parker played 15 minutes in Thursday's 99-86 victory over Phoenix, totaling six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one steal.
Though the six points were Parker's fewest since joining Boston nearly a week ago, he posted his best all-around stat line with four boards and four dimes. The veteran forward is averaging only 16 minutes per game with the Celtics, so his fantasy impact has been minimal. He's added some punch to the Celtics' bench, however, and is shooting an efficient 66.7 percent from the field.
Parker posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds in his Celtics debut Saturday night against Golden State.
Parker agreed to a deal with the Celtics on Friday, so it was a quick turnaround to get him available for Saturday's contest. The 2014 No. 2 overall pick contributed right away off the bench, playing 16 minutes and finishing as a plus-6 in a game the Celtics won by five points. Going forward, it will be interesting to see if Parker can hang onto a regular role in the rotation. The eventual return of Evan Fournier (COVID-19 protocols) could reduce Boston's need for scoring off the bench.
Parker is available for Saturday's contest against the Warriors, Sean Grande of 98.5 The Sports Hub reports.
Parker is available to make his Celtics debut Saturday. However, it's not a guarantee that he'll see the court. Parker has bounced around the league lately and has had trouble keeping a rotation spot and staying healthy. Since the start of the 2018-19 season, he's played for four teams (not counting the Celtics) and has averaged 14.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 25.4 minutes.
Parker agreed to a two-year deal with the Celtics on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Parker has averaged 14.8 points per game during his career but has had a hard time finding a stable situation over the past few seasons. The 2014 No. 2 overall pick spent his first four seasons with the Bucks and suffered two torn ACLs during that span. He subsequently bounced around the league, with stints in Chicago, Washinton, Atlanta and, most recently, Sacramento. He will now look to help provide depth in the Celtics' frontcourt.
Parker has been waived by the Kings as part of a deal that sent Nemanja Bjelica to Miami in exchange for Maurice Harkless and Chris Silva, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
This was the expectation, but Parker's time in Sacramento is officially at an end after he played just nine games for the team in two seasons. The 26-year-old will enter free agency after he was unable to crack the rotation with the Kings.
Parker is expected to be waived by the Kings, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Parker has played just nine total minutes with the Kings this season, as coach Luke Walton hasn't utilized him in the rotation. Parker may latch on somewhere else, but it's starting to become difficult to ignore the possibility that Parker's NBA career is fizzling out.
Parker didn't appear during Monday's win over Cleveland.
Parker was a DNP-coach's decision once again, and the forward hasn't played since March 15 against the Hornets. The forward has been kept on the sidelines for 12 of the last 13 games.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) isn't listed on the injury report for Thursday's game versus the Rockets.
The veteran forward was unavailable heading into the break due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, but he's apparently ready to play again. Parker appeared in only two games during the first half of the season for the Kings.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) is out Thursday against the Trail Blazers, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Parker continues to be sidelined while dealing with health and safety protocols. However, it seems like there's a good chance he'll be available after the All-Star break.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.
The 25-year-old has missed the last three games while in the NBA's health and safety protocols, but he could be available for Wednesday's contest. Parker has only two appearances all season, so he's unlikely to have much fantasy value once fully cleared.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) is out Sunday against the Hornets.
Parker will miss a third consecutive game as he remains in the league health and safety protocols. Once he's able to return, it's unlikely that he'll have much fantasy value unless Marvin Bagley or Harrison Barnes were to miss time.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) is out Friday against the Pistons.
Parker will miss a second straight game due to protocols. He wasn't a real part of the rotation beforehand, so his absence won't affect the team much.
Parker has entered the league's health and safety protocols and will not be available for Thursday's game against the Knicks, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Parker joins Hassan Whiteside in the protocols, so both players will remain out Thursday and likely miss at least a few more contests. Parker made his season debut less than a week ago against the Bulls and subsequently played 16 minutes off the bench against Milwaukee on Sunday. He was a DNP-CD in Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn.
Parker (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Kings' 118-109 win over the Pelicans.
Though he's been off the Kings' injury report since Jan. 11, Parker still has yet to make his season debut. Head coach Luke Walton's reluctance to use Parker even in a blowout is a clear indication that the Kings likely wouldn't have attempted to retain the 25-year-old if he hadn't exercised his $6.5 million player option during the offseason.
Parker is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Pacers.
Parker missed the last few games due to the league's health and safety protocols, but it looks like he'll be an option off the bench for coach Luke Walton on Monday. The 2014 No. 2 overall pick is yet to appear in a game this season, however, so it's unlikely he makes an impact.
Parker (COVID-19 protocols) is out for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Parker remains out and has yet to make his season debut. His next chance to play is Monday against the Pacers.
Parker is out again Friday against the Raptors due to health and safety protocols, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Parker has yet to suit up this season and that trend will continue until at least Saturday as he has been ruled out of Friday's contest. The 25-year-old could play against Portland on Saturday if he's able to clear the league's health and safety protocols by then.
Parker is out Wednesday against the Bulls due to health and safety protocols.
Parker wasn't listed on the Tuesday night injury report, so it's not clear what happened between then and now. Either way, Parker isn't expected to play a significant role with the Kings this season, so his absence doesn't mean much.
Parker (personal) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Bulls.
Parker hasn't yet seen the court this season between a back injury and personal matters, but he could suit up and play Wednesday. That said, it's not clear if coach Luke Walton has plans to utilize Parker.
