Milwaukee Bucks' Jason Kidd: 'We will be cautious with Jabari Parker'

Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd admits that he will not be pressing Jabari Parker into action as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd has revealed that his side will be cautious with Jabari Parker in his return from a knee injury.

The 20-year-old was selected with the second overall pick in 2014 Draft, and quickly became a vital player for the Bucks last season. However, Parker sustained a torn ACL in December last year ruling him out for the campaign.

The guard has made strides in his recovery, but Kidd is adamant that the club will not be pressing him back into action ahead of their training camp next week.

"We're not going to rush him back. This is a bigger picture," Kidd told reporters.

Parker averaged 12.5 points per game in 25 matches last season.
