MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker left Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat in the third quarter after suffering a knee injury. The Bucks have updated his condition, saying he has a torn ACL.

Video shows Parker's knee buckling as he drove to the rim in the third quarter of the game. He was carried off the court by his teammates.

The team said his rehabilitation will take 12 months, with surgery coming.

It's the same knee Parker had surgery on in 2014 after tearing his ACL during his rookie season in Milwaukee.

In a cruel stroke of irony for the Bucks, Parker suffered the injury on the same night last season's leading scorer, Khris Middleton, returned to the lineup after a preseason injury of his own.
