MILWAUKEE (AP) Rookie Jabari Parker will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, dealing a huge blow to the rebuilding Milwaukee Bucks.

The team said late Tuesday night that Parker will have surgery after tests revealed the extent of the injury. The second overall pick in this year's draft was flown back to Milwaukee after getting hurt in the third quarter of a 96-94 win Monday night over Phoenix.

The 19-year-old Parker was injured when he took an awkward step before colliding with the Suns' P.J. Tucker.
