The Milwaukee Bucks are patiently awaiting the return of 2014 No. 2 pick Jabari Parker from a torn ACL suffered last season, but it sounds like the Bucks won’t have to wait much longer. Parker will apparently fly to New York “soon” to see the doctor who did his knee surgery and get clearance to play, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.
Who knows what exactly “soon” means, but that at least sounds positive. Parker tore his ACL 25 games into his rookie season, and the Bucks are counting on him to be a key piece when he returns.
In other injury recovery news, Dallas Mavericks swingman Chandler Parsons is hoping to return from a knee injury against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears.
Parsons underwent a hybrid microfracture surgery in early May, and while he wasn’t able to make it back for the Mavericks’ opener, it looks like he won’t miss too much time.
