According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports!, Chandler Parsons suffered suffered “multiple severe and permanent injuries including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and torn labrum,” after being hit by another driver being charged with a DUI from the incident and his basketball future is unclear.
Our prayers go up for Parsons and his family. Parsons was not a part of the Hawks rotation before this devastating accident and can be left on the waiver wire. It also sounds like the matter will be litigated in court, so we should not expect Parsons back in the NBA any time soon. This is just the latest setback in the unfortunate career of Parsons, but hopefully he can regain his prior physical condition after an arduous, years-long rehabilitation process for his numerous knee injuries throughout his career. We hope for a speedy recovery for Parsons.
