Team sources tell Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com that Parsons’ rehab work on the knee is progressing as expected and that further surgery is not being considered (Twitter link).
Parsons underwent an operation in March to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. He signed a four-year, $94MM deal with Memphis in July, but has appeared in just six games. He was still recovering from surgery when the season began, then suffered a bone bruise on his left knee shortly after returning.
