Kidd: Parker should be fit in November

Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd is confident that small forward Jabari Parker will fully recover from his torn ACL by early November. 

Parker suffered the injury on December 15 against the Phoenix Suns and has begun practising with the team.

Kidd expects Parker to return to action in November and has said that the 20-year-old will only play between 10 and 15 minutes when he makes his comeback. 

"He looks great. He's done everything," Kidd told reporters on Tuesday. "Hopefully, in that first couple of weeks of November, he can come back and start his process, his journey, of playing 10 to 15 minutes a night and hopefully getting his load bigger as the season goes on."

Parker proved to be a solid asset in the 25 games he played last season as he averaged 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
