Not exactly.The quantum state of a system is a superposition of states. For each of these states then parameters like position are entirely funciotnall deterministic. However, the likelihood of the system being in any of these superposed states at an instance is probabilistic.In quantum mechanics you need both a state vector and a metric to get the value for a quantity.
