Ersan Ilyasova (nose) will not play Wednesday.

You should not expect to see Ilyasova at all during the the Bucks current road trip. Owners of Ilyasova will need a nice boost to his minutes and value knowing that Jabari Parker is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. He will have to string together a few good games before being considered in standard leagues, though.

Jabari Parker is expected to miss rest of the season with a suspected torn ACL.

This is horrible news for the rookie forward. Parker was injured on Monday against the Suns and was diagnosed with a suspected knee sprain. Instead, Parker tore his ACL and will now be out until next season. The rookie was averaging 29.5 minutes and 12.3 points per game and it sounds as though that's where he'll finish the season. Feel free to cut the promising rookie in redraft leagues.

Update: Bucks GM John Hammond said the results of an MRI on Jabari Parker's knee will be known Tuesday night.

This is pretty big news for the Bucks as the MRI will tell just how long they will be without the No.2 overall pick.

Jabari Parker's traveling back to Milwaukee for an MRI Tuesday on his sprained knee.

When the injury initially happened you could only fear the worst but a sprained knee is the best possible news for Parker and the Bucks. The MRI will give a better indication for when Parker may be able to return but for now it doesn't look like he will be returning to the court any time soon.

The X-rays taken on Jabari Parker's left knee were negative, but will still have a MRI on Wednesday.

The Bucks just want to make sure there is no structural damage at all, so the MRI is actually necessary. Even if it comes back negative, the team will have a much better idea as to his recovery timetable. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Khris Middleton scored 14 points (6-9 FGA) going 2-for-3 from three point range with a rebound, three assists and a steal during the Bucks' 96-94 win over the Suns on Monday.

Middleton was the hero Monday night, drilling a three-pointer off a bad look as time expired. It wasn't a great look and it hit off both the backboard and the rim before settling down into the net. It was the first game-winner of his NBA career, and if Jabari Parker misses time, Middleton should see more minutes as one of the Bucks' most effective shooters.

Brandon Knight scored 20 points (7-18 FGA, 6-6 FTA) going 0-for-3 from three point range with seven rebounds, four assists and a steal during the Bucks' 96-94 win over the Suns on Monday.

Per usual, Knight led the Bucks in minutes by a fair amount -- he played 39 minutes. He made a crucial shot with seven seconds left in Monday night's contest and had a team-high 20 points. He's averaging more than 20 points per game and more than five assists as well. Knight has established himself as a fantasy stud.

Jabari Parker scored eight points (3-7 FGA, 2-2 FTA) with three rebounds, an assist and a steal before exiting the Bucks' 96-94 win over the Suns with a knee injury on Monday.

Parker left the game with a sprained knee near the beginning of the second half after colliding with the Suns' PJ Tucker. He'll be examined by the team's medical staff Tuesday and his current status is up in the air. Parker has been up and down so far this season, while showing glimpses of future stardom. Stay tuned for updates.

Jabari Parker has sprained left knee and will not return.

Parker's left knee buckled while in transition and he will not return. While a timetable hasn't been provided yet, it would be likely that the Bucks will play it safe and hold their young rookie out of action for a few games.

Jabari Parker's left knee buckled while he drove in transition. He is being carried off to the training room by teammates.

Parker was a promising young rookie, and the Bucks are hoping that he avoided a major injury. He is being evaluated at the moment, but it would be quite a surprise if he returned to game action tonight. Owners will want to monitor this situation as Parker was playing well this season. He was averaging 12.5 points and 5.6 rebounds thus far.
