Parsons Has A Partial Meniscus Tear, Likely Done For Season

111 posts in this topic

I dunno what Amare Stoudemire ya'll were watchin. But he had one of his best seasons after signin that contract with the Knicks. He was a few years removed from his knee injury but i believe he had his eye injury the season before. It was only after that first year with the knicks that he fell apart with more injuries. But he was certainly worth the max at the time he signed it.

 

Its funny, the Suns let him walk n that's what did them in, they haven't made the playoffs since. Parsons signing remains to be seen if it was the right move. But keepin Gasol n Conley were the definitely the right moves for us, we'd be a 20 win team right now if we didnt resign them.

 

Keeping a good not great PG in Conley at close to 1/3 of your team's salary cap ensures you have a mediocre team the length of the contract. This team will be playoff bound and bounced first second round till they get off this ridiculous carousel notion of the real effectiveness of this "core".   

 

 

Three coaches and two F.Os in and this "core" led team has led to the same result. And right now Chris Wallace is still trying to convince the locals that he can push this boulder up the hill.

no we could have filled he roster with more than just Parsons for that money. Especially with the career averages he has.

 

You still could have cap room going into this coming season where we could have made some huge moves with plenty of players to pick from

 

Paul mill sap, Gordon Hayward, Danilo, jeff Teague, JJ Red, Greg monroe, Taj gibson, George hill, Shaun Livingston, Jrue Holiday, etc.

 

It's managing wisely. I don't care what anyone says about this being a small market. You overpaid Chandler. You can do the same to someone without an injury history.

 

I was all for not spending the money this past season. I was for signing a couple of guys for fair contracts leaving room for a big move this coming offseason knowing we wouldn't have draft picks to help us out.

 

Chandler should have never been a target.

We could have traded for Danilo Gallinari during the offseason. He was also considered injury-prone and I remember people here on the boards being scared of him. Now he's been pretty solid and pretty healthy while Parsons hasn't. I guess we just drew the short stick. It was a calculated gamble and we failed.

Parsons needs to go and get his knees checked out by some specialists other than the Grizz staff, just saying.

It's hard to comment on what this means without knowing the extent and type of meniscus tear, but generally speaking:

- The good: Meniscectomies usually result in recovering full knee motion in 2-4 weeks and a full recovery in 3 months. He will be ready well before training camp.

- The bad: This is essentially removing part (or all) of the cartilage that acts as a cushion for the knee. It is the beginning of a slope at whose end lies Brandon Roy's interrupted career.

Yeah, the meniscus is tricky. i had a meniscus tear near the outside which is closer to the blood supply so they did something to get more blood to the area and repair it. It's a different story when they have to take some out because that is the cartilage protecting your knee. He may experience arthritis in that knee because it's a higher potential for bone on bone especially for a world class athlete.

Not hard to comment at all. And generally speaking, Parsons is of little to no use to the Grizz for at least 2 more years.

Good luck Chandler. I hope your recovery is quick, painless and you are ready to shock some doubters next season.
