Parsons Has A Partial Meniscus Tear, Likely Done For Season

Recommended Posts

Thomas    0

Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the meniscus in his left knee. Parsons will be out indefinitely as the team fully evaluates the appropriate course of action.

 

“To suffer a setback like this after working so diligently to rebound from the injury to his right knee is obviously tough. That said, we know he will continue to work tirelessly to return to the court with his teammates and contribute,” General Manager Chris Wallace said. “Chandler has the full support of myself, Coach Fizz and the entire team and we are all focused on getting him healthy.”

 

Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.

re: Parsons. Be surprised if Parsons (knee) plays again for Grizzlies this season

Looks like we've got another Chris Wallace Special on our hands.

They screwed up just trying force him back into the game even with the minutes restriction when it was obvious he was not healthy. I don't care what your opinion is of Chandler but I hate it for him.

No shocker.  I'm not really buying the injury as an excuse, but whatever.  It just sucks that we had to **** over OUR team chemistry by letting him to continue to be a starter.  The team is in a full tailspin going down, and NOW he can no longer play.  Fans are not going to like it at all.

 

Whoever decided to pick up this chump in the offseason needs to be canned immediately.

Idiots man. Straight idiots in the front office. I never liked the signing and I sure as hell am not afraid to voice it.

 

You don't sign a guy that has had two knee surgeries (including a hybrid one) to a FULLY GAIRANTEED contract. Let alone for 4 years at $94 mil.

 

They had to jump the gun just like they did with a Jeff Green.

 

Meanwhile, if they had patience, they could have gone after Hayward or any number of sg/ sf players in this offseason.

 

Now we are truly handicapped for the next two seasons unless we try for a rebuild by trading Marc or Mike or both.

Tim McMahon saying he needs season ending knee surgery. Interesting, maybe that European report from a couple of months ago wasn't so crazy.

Some of the fans wanted him during the off season You got what you wanted didn't you.

 

 

I'm taking a wild guess here and I'm going to say most didn't want a perpetually injured player.

Total shocker. There were no signs that this guy would have health problems when signed. NONE!

Well, who knows what the injury insurance rules are? 

Parsons gets his $, but doesn't the team get a break so it can hire a replacement? 

 

Especially if he's done permanently.

Fire Chris Wallace and Hollinger.. Also Grizz Medical Staff should have seen this coming. This just validates that the Grizz F.O is arguably the worst in the NBA.

That was my first thought. I wonder if they put something in there about him being seriously injured during teh first year of the contract or something. Who knows, maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

Apparently you've never heard of the 76ers or Kings or you just want to add fuel to the negativity fire.

Total Bullsh*T. This useless F.O trying to save face by announcing a fake injury. They know they can't keep trolling out Parsons for a worthless 20 mins anymore and don't know how to shut him down after all the "we support him 100%" statements.

 

This absentee owner is really killing this franchise with his lazy decisions. He said he was a "super fan" when he bought the team. Funny that a super fan who owns the team doesn't even go to games and doesn't seem concern with the team's performance. Laziest move ever extending Chris Wallace. Just total lack of understanding of the history of this team.

Parsons will get paid regardless, but insurance will cover the time he doesn't play. The money won't go away from the team's salary though.

 

We can't apply for a disabled player exception this season, deadline was Jan 15. If Parsons was deemed out for the 2017-18 season we would be able to get a DPE for that season, which would allow us to:

  • Sign a free agent for one season only, for 50% of Parsons' salary or the amount of the MLE, whichever is less.
  • Trade for a player in the last season of his contract only (including any option years), who is making no more than 50% plus $100,000 of Parsons' salary, or the amount of the MLE plus $100,000, whichever is less.
  • Claim a player on waivers who is in the last season of his contract only (including any option years), who is making no more than 50% of Parsons' salary, or the amount of the MLE, whichever is less.

So basically we'd get a one-year MLE.

 

If Parsons was determined to have a career-ending injury by a team of NBA-appointed physicians (not gonna happen in his current situation) we could get an injury exclusion and waive him, removing his remaining salary from the books. If somehow he managed to play again (25 games or more) we'd be forced to eat that money back, like we did to Portland when we hired Darius Miles.

I'm not sure that kind of clause is legal under the CBA, but if so, the contract would be reported as non-fully guaranteed.

Wallaces head needs to roll for this signing.

 

Parsons can no longer be used as the scapegoat though

Ugh.  Still, this could also have happened to the guy we could have had instead of Parsons. 

With our team's luck, it would have been almost certain.
