Parker carried off with knee injury in Phoenix

Bucks rookie star Jabari Parker had to be carried off the court after injuring his knee in the third quarter of the Bucks-Suns game in Phoenix Monday night.

While driving to the basket, Parker's knee extended in an unnatural direction as he collided with P.J. Tucker from the Suns. Parker could not get to his feet after the play and was carried off the court by two teammates.

The Fox Sports Wisconsin broadcast said Parker suffered a sprained knee. The Bucks rallied in Parker's absence, scoring 29 in the fourth quarter and beating Phoenix 96-94 on a buzzer-beating three pointer by Khris Middleton. Six Bucks scored in double figures, led by Brandon Knight's 20 points.
