Karma shouldn't have treated Jabari Parker like this. The rising star for the Milwaukee Bucks wrote a thoughtful note to injured Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine shortly after LaVine's learned Feb. 5 that his season was over due to a torn ACL.

Parker's season is now over, too.

"Just wanted to reach out and say keep your head high bro," Parker wrote to LaVine on Twitter five days ago. "You going to be jumping even high soon, trust me, I know lol."

Parker knows all too well. He tore his ACL as a rookie in 2014 and now his 2016-17 season is over after re-tearing the ACL in his left knee.

According to ESPN, Parker will be out for 12 months.

LaVine has already sent a tweet to Parker wishing him well.
