Jabari Parker Tears ACL, Out For a Year

Some tough news coming out of Milwaukee as Bucks forward Jabari Parker has torn the ACL in his left knee, again. After the Bucks loss to the Heat, Parker said that his injury was just a hyperextension and he’d be fine but an MRI reveals that he has torn the same ACL that sidelined him in his rookie season.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Parker, who was averaging 20 points ans 6.2 rebounds per game for a promising Bucks team. He is out for a full calendar year to rehab the injury.

Bucks forward Jabari Parker suffered a left knee injury during the third quarter of last night’s game vs. Miami at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. This morning, Parker underwent an MRI that revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee. Parker will undergo surgery to repair the injury and will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season. The recovery and rehabilitation period is estimated at 12 months.
