The Grizzlies announced on Monday that Parsons will have a procedure to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee.


Parsons signed a four-year, $94 million contract last summer as the Grizzlies’ biggest free-agent acquisition. But he averaged just 6.2 points and played only 34 games this season while his minutes were limited because of knee problems.

He didn’t play more than 25 minutes in any game this season. The Grizzlies had announced Tuesday of last week that Parsons was out indefinitely because of the partial tear.

Before this latest issue with his left knee, Parsons had undergone two surgeries on his right knee within the last two years.
