Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons is set to undergo a knee surgery, which will likely sideline him for the rest of the season.

The Grizzlies told ESPN on Monday (March 13) that Parsons is out indefinitely with a partial tear of the meniscus in his left knee. If he does undergo surgery, it’ll be his third consecutive season-ending surgery.

Team sources say the final decision will be made later this week.

Parsons underwent surgery in his right knee in the previous two years, keeping him out of the line-up.

He signed a four-year, $94 million maximum contract with the Grizzlies over the summer, but has been limited to only 34 games due to problems with both knees. He’s also averaging career lows, including points (6.2 per game), rebounds (2.5), assists (1.6) and field goal percentage (33.8 percent).
