    Forward expected to miss 12 months

    MILWAUKEE -- The Bucks say the knee surgery on forward Jabari Parker was success and he is expected back in approximately 12 months.

    Parker suffered a season-ending left knee injury for the second time in three years on Feb. 8 during a home loss to Miami. The surgery performed Tuesday was to repair his ACL.

    Parker should be back around this time next year. How he comes back, however, could make or break his future with the Bucks and even the NBA (read more).

    Parker was averaging a career-high 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds as one of the Bucks' franchise cornerstones and the team's second-leading scorer. An injury to the same ACL in December 2014 knocked Parker out of his rookie season after 25 games.
