Tough blow for the Bucks!
With the second pick by the Milwaukee Bucks, Jabari Parker was destined to spark change in an organization that hasn’t seen the second round of the playoffs since the early 2000’s. However, due to his recent injury the rookie may have to wait till his second season to fulfill those duties. After colliding knees with Suns swingman P.J. Tucker, the rookie forward is expected to miss the rest of his rookie season with an ACL tear in his left knee.
Since being drafted, the forward has averaged an impressive 12.3 points and 5.5 rebounds a game through 25 contests. Not to mention, Jabari was named the Eastern Conference rookie of the month for both October and Novemeber.
