Next Stop Milwaukee For Heat Team Looking To Win 12th Straight

Parker had to be carried off the court by teammates and what's worrisome for Milwaukee, is the knee Parker injured, is the same one he hurt in his rookie season.

The team called it a sprained left knee and Parker will undergo an MRI examination Thursday.

The 21-year-old had been in the midst of a breakout season in 2016-17, averaging a career-high 20.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game for a promising young Milwaukee team.

Parker played almost all of his sophomore season, suiting up for 76 games after recovering from the torn ACL.

Kidd said a 12-month recovery period is expected for Parker.

Heat: Waiters missed the game after spraining his left ankle on Monday at Minnesota. Middleton returned Wednesday and scored five points in 15 minutes.

The Bucks need another playmaker, because let's be honest, we don't know if Jabari is ever going to be a go-to guy again, or a threat to pour in 30 a game on any given night.

And the news that many feared for the former #2 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft is now real: he has another torn ACL.

Jabari went down without contact on a drive during Wednesday night's game against the Heat in Milwaukee. This was an unfortunate and huge blow for the Bucks as Middleton was Milwaukee's best player for most of the season until Giannis Antetokounmpo's second-half explosion. After an up-and-down sophomore season a year ago, Parker has jumped to 20.1 points per game, while shooting 49.0 percent from the field.

Parker tore his left ACL in December of 2014, playing just 25 games as a rookie.

A second tear may have a longer lasting impact and present different challenges, but the time for addressing those concerns will come later.

Thoughts and best wishes from a number of National Basketball Association players were offered on social media, including one from Dwyane Wade, who knows all about dealing with injuries.
