Parker had 18 points, four assists and three rebounds, while shooting 8-for-13 from the field, when he tried a runner in the lane that missed. He was defended by the Rockets’ Pat Beverley, but not bumped on the play.
Parker stayed down in the lane, barely moving, until the training staff arrived. He could not put weight on the knee and had to be carried off the court by teammates Dewayne Dedmon and Dejounte Murray.
