Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker suffered a torn ACL on Wednesday, according to a statement from the team, and will be out for the rest of the season.
“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,” the team said in a statement. “In 51 games (50 starts) this season, Parker averaged 20.1 points (2nd on team), 6.2 rebounds (3rd on team), 2.8 assists (4th on team) and 1.0 steals in 33.9 minutes (2nd on team) per game. He scored in double figures 47 times, including 20-plus points in 28 games.”
Parker was drafted number two overall by the Bucks in 2014. He missed much of the 2014-15 and the beginning of the 2015-16 season with a similar injury.
