The Bucks won 96-94 last night in Phoenix on a wild buzzer-beater from Khris Middleton, but the bigger story was Jabari Parker leaving the game with a knee injury. Parker suffered the injury in the second half as he was trying to eurostep around P.J. Tucker. When Parker planted on his left foot, his knee buckled inward and he crumpled to the ground. Though he wasn't writhing around in pain, Parker refused help to get up right away and was unable to bend his leg. He was then carried off by teammates with a despondent look on his face.

Parker was diagnosed with a left knee sprain shortly after the injury, but Jason Kidd said after the game that the team wouldn't know anything further until an MRI was done. It looks like that test will happen later today.

Though thrilled with the victory, the other Bucks players thoughts' were with their teammate after last night's game.

The initial X-rays were negative, but that's not exactly an encouraging sign.

It may change once the test results are in, but for now it seems like Jabari was in decent spirits post-injury.

All there's left to do now is wait for the results. Fingers crossed.
