The Grizzlies are making forward Chandler Parsons a healthy-inactive for the foreseeable future, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic. Parsons was cleared to play by the team’s medical staff and participated in a full five-on-five scrimmage Saturday, according to Charania, but wasn’t available for Sunday’s game against the Lakers.
Parsons, 30, has played just three contests with the Grizzlies this season. He’s been sidelined with right knee soreness since Oct. 24, undergoing an MRI that showed fluid build-up but no structural damage at the time.
The Grizzlies most recently listed Parsons as out with “return from injury management”, a term often used when essentially healthy players are sitting, according to David Cobb of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
