Bucks SF to Undergo Season-Ending Knee Surgery

Antonio JonesFeb 10, 2017

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

Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points and James Johnson added 20 as the Miami Heat extended their winning streak to 12 games with a 106-88 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday night at the Bradley Center.

Parker left Milwaukee's game Wednesday night, February 8th against the Miami Heat in the third quarter with a sprained left knee.

After undergoing further medical evaluation, Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season.

In his third year, Parker is averaging career highs in points (20.1), rebounds (6.2) and assists (2.8). He fell to the ground and was helped off the floor and into the locker room by teammates.

Parker's three-point play with 1:07 left in the half got the Bucks within six but the Heat recovered and took a 55-44 lead into halftime. Robbie Hummel tore his ACL as he was returning from an ACL injury the previous season at Purdue, sidelining him the entire 2010-11 season.

Parker, the No. 2 pick in the 2014 draft, was really starting to blossom into the player we all hoped he would be this season. Evaluate if Jason Kidd really is the answer as the head coach, which I've been doubting since the first season, although he has faced a lot of key injuries.

On the plus side, Parker's value was probably better established before his injury than LaVine's. Giannis Antetokounmpo could also play more four to open up minutes for the wings.

In the short term, the Bucks will miss Parker as they chase a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Will Parker come back anything like the player he was becoming?

But, as released on Thursday afternoon, the news was much worse.

For now, the Bucks were already struggling even with a healthy Parker and Antetokounmpo.
