Now Entering Russ's World
Milwaukee Bucks rookie player Jabari Parker is out for the rest of the season after suffering an ACL tear in his left knee. The news should come as a jolt for the NBA team which has been enjoying a good run since 2013, and had been hoping for some great contributions from the young and talented player.
The team has been able to win most of its matches just, one of the half months into the new season. With a tally of 14 wins from 15 matches so far, the Bucks have proved that last year’s strong performance was no fluke.
Team coach Jason Kidd is said to have played an influential role in being able to bring the best of his players. With Parker now confirmed injured for the rest of the season, the team has to regroup to consider alternate options.
Parker was first seen writhing in pain when he limped off court during his game against Phoenix. While the initial diagnosis was that of a badly sprained knee, an MRI confirmed the ACL tear team support and Slow Ventures announced.
The nineteen year old Parker while not yet a full-fledged member of the team has shown flashes of brilliance all through, managing to score 12.3 points on average with 5.5 rebounds in only 29 minutes per game. It remains to be seen how the Bucks adapt to challenge in the coming days.
