Jabari Parker, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2013, could shut it down for next week’s Peach Jam and the rest of the summer due to a foot injury.
“We don’t know yet,” Sonny Parker, Jabari’s father, told SNY.tv by text Tuesday. “Jabari has an appointment to see his Dr. Wednesday morning, then we will know.”
Parker injured his foot during the U17 World Championships in Lithuania and sat out the semifinal game before playing 14 minutes as the Americans won the final.
He was set to have an MRI on his right heel, according to RantSports.com.
Parker, out of Chicago Simeon, recently cut his list to 10 schools and previously told SNY.tv he plans to announce in November.
