The Hawks will waive Parsons (concussion) to complete the four-team, 12-player trade that was agreed upon Wednesday between Atlanta, Houston, Denver and Minnesota, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. In the final season of the four-year, $94.44 million deal he inked in the summer of 2016, Parsons appeared in just five games for the Hawks before he was sidelined in January following a serious automobile accident. The veteran forward continues to experience concussion symptoms as a result of the accident, and the head injury coupled with the knee woes he's battled over the past few years could spell an end to his career. At the very least, Parsons isn't expected to play again in 2019-20 before he likely decides on his future in basketball this offseason.
Parsons is still in the first stage of the league's concussion protocol, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Parsons was involved in an automobile accident earlier in the month and is still dealing with the aftereffects, which -- along with his ongoing concussion symptoms -- include whiplash and a cervical disc injury, and could ultimately end his playing career. He has yet to resume any sort of conditioning exercises and should be considered out indefinitely.
Parsons' (concussion) NBA future is unclear following injuries sustained in an automobile accident earlier in January, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Parsons' injury woes over the last several years have been well-documented, but until recently, chronic knee issues have been the primary culprit. Last week, Parsons' vehicle was struck by a drunk driver, and the incident resulted in "multiple severe and permanent injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and torn labrum," according to a statement from the law firm Parsons has retained for the case. The Hawks have since included him on the injury report with a concussion, but this latest update implies that he's likely to miss significant time, and there's a belief that his NBA career could be in jeopardy. Per the legal statement: "Chandler was in peak physical condition at the time of the wreck. He is now working with a team of doctors to regain his health, and at this time, his ability to return to play is unclear."
Parsons (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus Toronto, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Parsons has yet to clear the concussion protocol after being involved in a car accident last Wednesday. The 31-year-old next chance to take the court will be Wednesday against the Clippers.
Parsons (concussion) won't play in Saturday's game against Detriot, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. Parsons remains in concussion protocol following a car accident Wednesday. His next opportunity to play comes Monday against Toronto.
