Bucks rookie Jabari Parker out for season with torn ACL

The Milwaukee Bucks have now confirmed that Jabari Parker will miss the rest of his rookie season.

Parker was injured in the third quarter of Monday night's game in Phoenix. He was carried off the court by his teammates and returned to Milwaukee on Tuesday for evaluation.

AN injury update from the Bucks confirms Parker has a torn ACL and will need surgery.

Parker, the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, had become a key part of a resurgent Bucks team that has posted a 13-12 record through their first 25 games this season. Parker is second among NBA rookies with 12.3 points per game.

Well-wishes poured out from fans and the NBA community Tuesday night. Mallory Edens, the daughter of Bucks owner Wes Edens, tweeted \"hope people can join me in sending @JabariParker their love, well wishes, and sincerest prayers for a speedy recovery.\"

Parker has time on his side in dealing with the injury. He doesn't turn 20 until April.
