Chandler Parsons is officially done for this season after the Dallas Mavericks’ small forward underwent arthroscopic surgery today to address an injury to his right medial meniscus.
Mavericks team physician, Dr. Daniel Worrell, performed the surgery at The Carrell Clinic in Dallas.
Parsons suffered the injury last Friday during a home game against the Golden State Warriors. The five-year veteran subsequently missed the Mavericks’ next two games – both of them were against the Portland Trail Blazers.
This is the second year in a row Parsons’ season has ended with an injury to the same right knee. Last year he missed the final six games of the regular season, played 37 minutes in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series against Houston, but sat out the final four games of that series.
Last May 1, Parsons underwent a hybrid micro-fracture surgery to repair an injury to his right knee.
In 61 games this season, Parsons averaged 13.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 29.5 minutes. He also shot 49.2 percent form the field and 41.4 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
But during the last 30 games he’s played since Jan. 12, Parsons averaged 18.3 points and 5.8 rebounds while shooting 52 percent from the field and 47.5 percent from 3-point range.
