Report: Mavericks’ Chandler Parsons undergoes right knee surgery
Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons had surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee on Friday, reports ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
Parsons will miss the rest of the season, but is expected to be ready to work out in the off-season, according to the report.
Parsons played in 61 games for the Mavericks this season, averaging 13.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. He shot 49.2% from the field, including 41.4% from the three-point line.
Parsons has struggled to stay healthy while in Dallas. His 2014–15 season also ended early due to a knee injury that required surgery.
The Mavericks signed Parsons to a three-year, $46 million contract in 2014. He can become a free agent this summer if he declines the player option included in his deal.
