Chandler Parsons Injury Might Mean End Of Dallas Mavericks Title Hopes; Rick Carlisle Explains Forward’s Current Dilemma

Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons might have just played his last game last Saturday.

According to reports, his swollen knee makes it unlikely for him to come back in the series against the Houston Rockets.

The Dallas Morning News Eddie Sefko has the recent news about Chandler Parsons injury from head coach Rick Carlisle.

“This is a young man who is very important to our team now and in the future.

We’re very concerned.

He will be re-evaluated (Wednesday) by Dr.(T.O.) Souryal and we’ll have more information for you following that evaluation,” coach Carlisle said.

He was also asked what he thinks about Chandler Parsons not being able to return in their series against the Houston Rockets.

“I’m concerned, period.

That does loom as a possibility, but we’ll know more (Wednesday).

I will say this: it’s become clear to those of us close to the team and him that he’s been in more pain than he’s let on.

The fact the knee has not responded and the swelling has not dissipated the way we hoped means we have to pull the plug on tonight and he’s got to see doc tomorrow and see what’s what,” Carlisle stressed.

In what seems to be his last game played in this year’s playoffs, he scored 10 points in 5-of-15 shooting while playing 37 minutes.

Tim McMahon  of ESPN spoke with Chandler Parsons about this setback.

“I kind of had that collapse feeling again.

It’s very painful.

It’s just frustrating.

I want to be out there.

I want to be 100 percent,” Parsons said.

“I want to help, and obviously I was a little rusty after not playing for two weeks, but I had no lift on my jump shots, had no lift on my finishes.

I’ve just got to do whatever I can.

Hopefully it doesn’t swell up and I’ll see the docs again tomorrow,” he added.
