Milwaukee forward Jabari Parker suffers torn ACL

Milwaukee forward Jabari Parker suffers torn ACL

After being eased back initially, Parker found his groove as the year went on and finished strong down the stretch, along with Antetokounmpo, sparking excitement for the Bucks as they went into the 2016-17 season. Two years ago a similar injury cut short his rookie season. But it will be a 12-month recovery. The positive, he's young and he understands.

Parker's injury is a ideal example of cruel the basketball gods can be. "I think it's necessary right now", Spoelstra said. Then understanding, hopefully, it wasn't serious. He averaged 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists this season.

Several other members of the National Basketball Association - including retired champions Scottie Pippen and Ron Harper - sent Parker their well wishes.

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

Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points and hauled in 16 rebounds and James Johnson contributed 20 points and Goran Dragic 16 as the Heat extended their winning streak to 12 games. "It had nothing to do with the injury", Hammond said.

Benched star Aguero hints he may be sold by Man City
We had that situation before when we won our first Premier League title and we were eight points behind Manchester United. Everyone at the club is helping me to get better every day but of course when things like this happen it is much easier.

Kidd said the Bucks had a spirited practice Thursday. "We've done it. We're just so inconsistent with that energy and effort that we have to look inside ourselves and figure it out. There probably will be different guys starting throughout the rest of the season".

With such a key player out of the lineup for such a long period of time, the Bucks acquired Michael Beasley and Tony Snell to help fill in for the absence of Middleton. Also in the mix is 7-1 forward-center Spencer Hawes, obtained in a trade with Charlotte last week.

Bad news: MRI shows JaBari Parker has torn his ACL again, league sources say. "Now we've got to learn how to play without Jabari".

Antetokounmpo will be going to the All-Star Game alone (rookie Malcolm Brogdon will tag along for the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge on Friday of the glittery weekend). "We need some insurance, just in case". Will Parker, after two ACL fix surgeries in the same knee in three years, still have the same bounciness, power and self-assurance when he gets back on the court?

After hurting his knee that December, the hard-working Chicago native returned 11 months later, playing 76 games in 2015-16.
