About a week ago, the Memphis Grizzlies announced that Chandler Parsons would be out indefinitely due to a partially torn meniscus in his left knee. Sunday, the worst fears about Parsons’ knee injury were confirmed, as Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reported that the Grizzlies’ small forward will undergo a meniscectomy, and is done for the season. Sunday’s news officially puts to end what was a very difficult first season for Parsons in Memphis. After signing a four-year, $94 million contract last summer, Parsons has played just 34 games, averaging 6.2 points and 2.5 rebounds, while shooting 33.8 percent from the field. He dealt with lingering knee problems, and was never able to get healthy or comfortable. Vince Carter has been starting in Parsons’ place since he left the lineup, and it will be interesting to see how the increased workload affects Carter down the stretch.
