Jabari Parker's devastating ACL tear adds him to a current Milwaukee Bucks injury report that will be shrinking one by one over the next few days. With Parker slated to miss the remainder of the season, we wanted to provide you with an update on all current players who are dealing with injuries -- and when they might be back.

Here's an overview of each individual's situation, and when they'll likely return to the floor for head coach Jason Kidd.

Johnny O'Bryant

Injury: Grade III sprain of right medial collateral ligament (MCL)

O'Bryant returned to practice last week for the first time since spraining his MCL Oct. 9 in Detroit. He was active Saturday vs. the Clippers, but did not play. With the Bucks short up front (Larry Sanders and Zaza Pachulia are the only healthy bigs), he might see his first action sometime this week, but still, don't expect a whole lot of playing time just yet.

Damien Inglis

Injury: Broken right foot

Inglis was active for the first time Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers after breaking his right foot in a pre-draft workout, but he still hasn't practiced at all yet. We will first need to see how he progresses in practice before considering when he might see his first game action.

Ersan Ilyasova

Injury: Nasal fractures

Ilyasova suffered his injury on Dec. 2 when the Bucks visited the Cleveland Cavaliers, and has been fitted for a mask once he returns. He is not on the current four-game road trip with the team, but is expected to return fairly soon -- masked and better than ever.

John Henson

Injury: Left foot sprain

Henson was hoping to return to practice during the team's current road trip, but that hasn't happened still. He suffered the injury on Nov. 25 against the Detroit Pistons after stepping on teammate Brandon Knight's foot. The best shot for Henson to return will likely be next Tuesday when the Bucks return home to face the Charlotte Hornets after two off days.

Jabari Parker

Injury: Left anterior cruciate ligament tear (ACL)

Parker is expected to miss the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL Monday in Phoenix.
