Milwaukee Bucks rookie Jabari Parker will miss the rest of his rookie season after it was revealed the 6-foot-8 forward suffered a torn ACL in his left knee Monday night in Phoenix. His teammates, as well as other players and figures around the league took to social media and gave support for the rookie from Duke who played in just 25 games.

Here's a tweet from forward John Henson, who now will be joined by Parker on the sidelines for the time being.
