Grizzlies' Chandler Parsons: Expected to be ready for training camp

Parsons (knee) is expected to be a full participant in training camp, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

Parsons once again saw his season cut short due to an injury, as he played in just 34 games with the Grizzlies and eventually ended up undergoing a meniscectomy on his left knee in March. With training camp not until late September, Parsons should have plenty of time to make a full recovery throughout the offseason, although when you take Parsons' injury history into account, the Grizzlies will likely be as safe as they can with his workload ahead of the team's season opener. Parsons is heading into the second year of a four-year, $94.5 million contract and is slated to net just over $23 million during the 2017-18 campaign. That certainly indicates that Parsons should rejoin the starting five right out of the gates, but it still remains to be seen if he'll be able to return to his previous form that netted him his original max deal with the Grizzlies in Jul. of 2016.
