It will be Parsons’ third knee surgery in the past three seasons. His last two surgeries were to his right knee. This season, Parsons has been averaging only six points per game on 34 percent shooting in 20 minutes.
Parsons has had a history of injuries in just the past two years. Dating back to April 2015, the injury history has been pretty crazy for him.
Parsons signed a six-year, $95 million deal with the Grizzlies after leaving the Mavs. It has been a struggle for him the past few years, because he’s obviously shown he has talent.
“To suffer a setback like this after working so diligently to rebound from the injury to his right knee is obviously tough. That said, we know he will continue to work tirelessly to return to the court with his teammates and contribute,” Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in the team’s statement. “Chandler has the full support of myself, Coach Fizz and the entire team and we are all focused on getting him healthy.”
Best of luck to Parsons on his recovery, and hopefully the 2017-18 season will be his bounce back year.
