Bucks Forward Jabari Parker has been plagued with injuries for most of his career so far. He had a second ACL surgery and finally returned to Milwaukee in January.
In the Bucks’ series vs the Celtics, Parker has only shot 1/7. He’s also been a liability on offense due to a myriad of turnovers. Per Stephen Watson of WISN 12 News, Parker voiced his frustration along with how Bucks Head Coach Jor Prunty is dealing with the situation.
“I’m human,” said Parker. I deserve to be out there. I’m not going to handle it well, I have feelings. I’ve been waiting two years, I’ve been waiting all that time and to see myself get cut short, no one is going to handle that the right way.”
Jabari Parker was very animated talking about his frustration right now with limited minutes. He mentioned the only way to see the floor more was to be on the “coach’s good side”. When asked if he was on Prunty’s good side, he smirked and said “I don’t think so.” #Bucks

Parker also believes that he hasn’t been on Coach Prunty’s good side. He said being on Prunty’s good side is the only way to step on the court.
If Parker can somehow get back to his game and remain healthy, he can be a solid contributor to a Bucks team that is on the rise. They are currently down 0-2 to the Celtics and will play Game 3 at home tonight.
