Chandler Parsons SF DAL 5 days ago

Parsons (knee) said he's unsure if he'll be ready for the start of training camp, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Parsons underwent surgery earlier this month, but the team is curiously declining to say what type of procedure took place. When asked Thursday if he underwent microfracture surgery, Parsons said, "I don't think they want me to answer whether it was or not." That's certainly not an overly encouraging statement, and it leads to the belief that Parsons' injury could have been more severe than the team was letting on. Either way, Parsons will be sidelined for most of the offseason, and it sounds as though Dallas is prepared to begin camp without him.

Parsons (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday, Earl Sneed of reports.

The procedure will address a cartilage injury, which cost Parsons a number of games down the stretch. The team is yet to provide a recovery timetable, but the fact that he only had the knee scoped - there was a chance he would need microfracture surgery - means the recovery timeline shouldn't be more than a couple of months. That said, it's best to wait until the team hands down an official timetable.

Parsons will see a specialist in Chicago next week to receive a third opinion on the procedure required for his knee issue, ESPN reports.

Parsons stated earlier that he's unsure about his status for the beginning of training camp next season. The final visit to the doctor could clear things up a bit, as he remains without a timetable for surgery. Once the required operation occurs, a clearer picture of his status should be made available.

Parsons (knee) said no date has been set for surgery, but he noted that he's unsure if he'll be ready for training camp next season, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The details as far as what injury, specifically, Parsons is dealing with are still murky, but the swingman did note that he has no torn ligaments or structural damage. While a date for surgery has not been set, the Mavericks will likely expedite the process as much as possible with the hope that Parsons is not limited when camp opens at the end of the summer. Parsons, of course, will not play again this season.

Parsons (knee) will miss the rest of the postseason and could require surgery, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

Parsons, who played 37 minutes in the series opener, was held out of Tuesday's Game 2 after pain and swelling resurfaced in his right knee. The Rockets are yet to provide an official diagnosis, though the fact that surgery is being considered indicates that it's a fairly severe issue. In his absence, Richard Jefferson will likely continue to fill in as the starting small forward, while Al-Farouq Aminu should pick up some extra run off the bench. Aminu and Jefferson each played 23 minutes Tuesday, scoring nine and seven points, respectively.

Parsons (knee), who was ruled out of Tuesday's Game 2, could be at risk of missing the remainder of the Mavericks' first-round series with the Rockets, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Coach Rick Carlisle announced a few hours before Tuesday's game that Parsons wouldn't play after his knee failed to respond as quickly as the team had hoped. Parsons will now be subjected to a visit with the team doctor Wednesday morning for a more thorough assessment, after which the Mavericks should have a better idea on his availability for the remainder of the series. Richard Jefferson is expected to start in Parsons' place Tuesday, while Al-Farouq Aminu should also be the beneficiary of more minutes in Parsons' absence.

Parsons (knee) will not play Tuesday against the Rockets, ESPN's Calvin Watkins reports.

Parsons played 37 minutes in the series opener, but appears to be in danger of being limited for the remainder of the series. An official starting lineup has yet to be released, but look for small forwards Al-Farouq Aminu and Richard Jefferson to potentially see extra minutes in his stead. Parsons will join Devin Harris on the inactive list.

Parsons (knee) scored 10 points (5-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt) with six rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes Saturday in the loss to the Rockets.

Parsons missed the last six games of the regular season and his return is vital to the Mavericks' chances this postseason. His numbers were down across the board in his first season in Dallas and will have to improve on his numbers if they are to advance past round one.
