Jabari Parker announced during the Bucks' Monday night broadcast that he will return to National Basketball Association action on his home court this Friday at 7 p.m. against the New York Knicks.

In 51 games played last season before the injury devastating injury, Parker averaged an impressive 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals per game in roughly 33.9 minutes of action per contest.
