Grizzlies' Chandler Parsons: Officially out for season

Parsons will have a meniscectomy on his left knee Monday and will miss the rest of the season, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

While there were rumors indicating that Parsons could miss the rest of the season, we can now officially confirm that, as Parsons will undergo a procedure on Monday. A timetable for recovery has not been provided, so it remains to be seen when he'll be able to resume basketball activities this summer. Parsons is locked in at a hefty $23.1 million guaranteed contract for the 2017-18 season, so he should be back with the Grizzlies as long as he's able to make a full recovery. Vince Carter has started the last four games for the Grizzlies and should continue to do so, while James Ennis is another guy who should pick up some added time for the final month of the season sans Parsons.
