The Mavs have suffered a big blow as forward Chandler Parsons is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery to repair a torn left meniscus.
Parsons was reportedly devastated when he learned about the tear as he was focused on helping the 35-35 Mavs secure a playoff spot and make a run in the postseason. Parsons was limited to just one playoff game last year against the Rockets due to injuries as well. Via Dallas News
Chandler Parsons probably needs arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, a procedure that would force him to miss the remainder of the season, a source said.
The Mavericks’ forward has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear that needs to be surgically corrected. He is expected to get a second opinion, but assuming the procedure is needed, it will mean both of Parsons’ first two seasons in Dallas ended prematurely with right knee problems.
Last season, Parsons missed the last portion of the regular season and all but one playoff game against Houston because of cartilage problems that required a version of microfracture surgery.
