Jabari Parker is close to a return for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Parker suffered the second ACL tear of his young career this past February and was slated for a return next February, but because of his rapid recovery (he apparently has looked pretty good for months) Parker could be on the fast track for a return.
Parker was assigned to the Milwaukee Herd G-League roster, the affiliate of the Bucks.

The Bucks still say that they are targeting a February return to the NBA court for now and Parker will only be practicing with the team for the time being, but I highly doubt Parker will be practicing and potentially playing games in the G-League for two months, I would venture a guess he returns to the court for Milwaukee in January.
This would be a huge boost for a Milwaukee team still hovering in the middle of the pack in the NBA at 15-13.
It makes sense for Milwaukee to be as cautious as possible with their young star considering his injury history and the fact that they may commit big money to him this off-season.
