Chandler Parsons, Marc Gasol got stuck in Miami elevator at 4 AM
The Memphis Grizzlies are stuck near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, and now they are getting stuck in other places too.
In a post to his Instagram Story early on Saturday morning, Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons revealed that he was trapped in a hotel elevator in Miami with teammate Marc Gasol and assistant coach Nick Van Exel as the clock neared 4 AM. The team is in town for a weekend game with the Miami Heat.
Here is footage of the entire ordeal from Parsons, per Jordan Heck of Sporting News (but beware of some foul language in the clip):

The 18-39 Grizzlies just came off a blowout loss to Cleveland at home on Friday night, and now they will play the Heat in Miami less than 24 hours later. Thus, these elevator troubles could not have been timed any worse. At least one of Parsons and Gasol’s other teammates can empathize though.
