Grizzlies' Chandler Parsons: Ruled out for Wednesday

Parsons (knee) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Timberwolves, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

With this latest report, Parsons will officially miss the entire preseason, but continues to ease his way back into the swing of things with the regular season opener slated for Oct. 26. Parsons started to take some limited contact earlier in October, but has yet to be cleared for five-on-five work, which means he still could be a ways off from a return. He'll have a little over a week for additional recovery prior to the opener, but it wouldn't be surprising if he ended up missing some time early on in the season.
