Report: Grizzlies to allow Chandler Parsons to rejoin team
Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons will play for the team again after all.
It looked like Parsons’ Grizzlies career was over in January, but after the team failed to find a taker for him at the trade deadline, the two sides have decided to make it work for the time being and Parsons will return to the lineup after the All-Star break, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Parsons has battled knee injuries, though he has said he is now healthy. The Grizzlies had opted against playing him, and the two sides were headed for a separation before they found that there were no takers for his services, leaving them little choice but to bring him back into the fold.
Parsons has played in just 73 games since joining Memphis prior to the 2016-17 season. He hasn’t played in an NBA game since Oct. 22, but that will soon change.
