But the 20-year-old Parker is looking forward to rejoining his teammates on the court and believes he is on schedule to take part in training camp in the fall. "I'm feeling great," Parker said after the Bucks players' exit interviews at the team training center Friday. "I think I'm going to stay around here for June. "July I will be out in summer league (in Las Vegas) and eventually be on the court, not playing, of course. "After that in August maybe do a combined session with some (other) forwards. We'll go out somewhere; I don't know where we're going to train. "I'd be right on schedule for where I want to go. It prepares me right before the season to get the wind going. It's always good to be a part of the team in the preseason." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Kidd said rookie Jabari Parker is on schedule in the early stages of his recovery from anterior cruciate ligament surgery. Parker, a Chicago native, suffered a torn left ACL in a Dec. 15 game in Phoenix. He played 25 games and averaged 12.3 points and 5.5 rebounds before suffering the season-ending injury. "It's tough as a rookie to have that type of injury," Kidd said. "But one, I think he's in good spirits. And two, he's done everything for rehabbing and he's excited to get back. He's around the team. He comes to shootarounds still, being able to learn the game from a different seat. When he comes back on the court, the game becomes a little easier for him because he's seen it all." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Marshall hurt the knee Thursday when the Bucks faced the Knicks in London. ''He's been great for us,'' said Bucks coach Jason Kidd. ''It's disappointing. It's an unfortunate accident for a player who was playing well.'' NBA.com

Jabari Parker's long road to recovery officially starts today. As expected, the second overall pick in the 2014 draft went under the knife in New York on Monday to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament. Per the team's official release this evening: Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced that rookie forward Jabari Parker underwent successful surgery today to repair his left ACL injury. The surgery was performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York by Dr. David Altchek with Bucks orthopaedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon assisting.

David Aldridge: Before Jabari was injured, what would the two of you talk about what he saw on the court, and how it compared with what you saw? Giannis Antetokounmpo: I tried to talk to him whenever I see him, try to say a few things to him, and just try to build a relationship between us. He's a great player, a great kid. First of all, he plays hard. He practice hard. He's going to be a great player in this league, and it's great to talk about that kind of player, at such a young age. He makes me work harder. He makes me want to compete more ... It was great playing with him, especially whenever he had the ball, the defensive guys load on him and he gives me opportunities, so whenever the ball swings on me, to drive, play one on one. Now that he's out, it will be harder, because the load will be on me, and not so many opportunities. But it's not about that. It's about what's going on now. Jabari knows to get quickly healthy, and get back as soon as possible, and stronger, and try to play again and get together and compete next year. NBA.com

David Aldridge: With him, do you see what the future could be like for the Bucks, with the two of you? Giannis Antetokounmpo: Definitely. I definitely see the future, especially with Jabari. He's a great teammate. So of course you see the future with him. Hopefully everything is good and everything goes well, we keep winning, and the future is brighter. NBA.com

Another Hall of Fame in-waiting inductee, Bucks coach Jason Kidd, said Parker’s exquisite all-around game is somewhat similar to that of James. “When you look at Jabari, he does a lot of special things,” Kidd said. “I don’t know if I ever said he would be the next LeBron; their games are a little different. But Jabari does a lot of things really well just like LeBron.” Racine Journal-Times
