Jabari Parker has been cleared to play Wednesday

SHARE Jabari Parker has been cleared to play Wednesday

It’s been nearly a full calendar year since Jabari Parker last played an NBA game. His rookie season was cut short after just 25 games because of a knee injury. Now, just a few games into the 2015-16 season, Parker is ready to return.

Parker has been cleared to play and will be in uniform for his first game Wednesday in the Bucks game against Philadelphia.

During his short stretch last season, Parker was off to an impressive start. The Simeon High School graduate had been averaging more than 12 points-per-game and five rebounds.

The Bucks are off to a slow start this year, they are 0-3 heading into their game Monday night against Brooklyn. Milwaukee made the playoffs last season as the six seed with a 41-41 record. They lost to the Bulls in the first round.

With a healthy Parker alongside the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael Carter-Williams, the Bucks hope to compete not only for a playoff spot, but home court advantage in the first round.
