The Grizzlies signed Chandler Parsons to a massive 4-year, $95 million contract in the offseason and head coach David Fizdale said he wanted Parsons to “play like LeBron.” Things haven’t gotten off to a great start in Memphis for Parsons as he is averaging 7.7 points over six games. Now it appears that the forward will miss more time thanks to a bone bruise.
From ESPN‘s Tim McMahon:
Source: Chandler Parsons has a bone bruise in his left knee that could cause him to miss up to two weeks. That is not the knee that Parsons has had surgically repaired twice. The Grizzlies announced that Parsons will miss Monday’s game in Charlotte, the second straight game he will miss.
Including this season, Parsons has played in 133 games since the 2014-15 season and has been dealing with knee issues that have sidelined him for extended time.
