Chandler Parsons, who addressed his status for the first time in two weeks, confirmed he had his knee checked out by specialists during the team’s recent west coast trip and results showed no structural damage. He’s spent the past several days working to reduce swelling and soreness in the right knee, which has twice been surgically repaired. “My knee is feeling much better than it has been, so we keep doing a little more and more in practice to hopefully get back into a game soon,” said Parsons, who experienced swelling after he played in a Dec. 27 road win against the Lakers. “That’s the weirdest thing (because) I don’t remember getting hit. It wasn’t like an instance where I got hit or fell or got kneed. So I just took it slow, got it checked out, checked off the boxes and nothing was wrong. So I’ll just continue to strengthen it and do all the proper steps forward.”
Yet the extent of Parsons’ injury remains as much a mystery as his rehab and possible timetable for a return to the court. “He’s not doing any contact stuff,” Grizzlies interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “But he’s been able to do a ton of shooting (and) conditioning, and every day we wait to see how he’s building. Things are improving. We’ll keep pushing forward.”
