Jabari Parker tears ACL again

Jabari Parker tears left ACL for 2nd time, will miss 12 months

Bucks swingman Jabari Parker has suffered a season-ending left knee injury for the second time in three years.

Parker will need surgery after tearing his ACL in the third quarter of the Bucks' 116-88 loss to Miami on Wednesday. The Bucks say the recovery and rehabilitation period will take about a year, meaning he will miss the beginning of next season.

Parker was averaging a career-high 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds as one of the Bucks' franchise cornerstones and the team's second-leading scorer. Until Wednesday, he showed no signs that the knee was giving him trouble, consistently making explosive drives to the bucket.

Really tough break for him, after shaking off the injury in his rookie season and continuing to develop into a very promising player for the Bucks.

tough, appears to be the same left knee. He probably needs a little tweak in the way he plays/moves. If only every team could have the same health and conditioning team from the Suns.
