Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons could potentially miss up to two weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee, the knee opposite from the one he has had surgically repair on two different occasions.
Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports that there is no structural damage in Parsons’ knee, and he will miss his second consecutive game on Monday when the Grizzlies take on the Charlotte Hornets in Charlotte.
The Grizzlies then will head to Philadelphia on Wednesday to take on the 76ers, and then return home to play the Miami Heat on Thursday before traveling to Miami to play the Heat on the back end of a back-to-back.
Parsons’ missed the Grizzlies’ first six games this season due to rehabilitation from knee surgery in March, and had been on a minute restriction upon returning on November 6.
The 28-year-old Parsons, who signed a four-year, $94 million contract with the Grizzlies this off-season, is averaging 7.7 points and 3.0 rebounds this season. He has career averages of 14.2 points, 3.0 assists, and 5.0 rebounds per game.
