Chandler Parsons, who has been out of the Grizzlies lineup with multiple injuries since signing a huge contract with Memphis, says he’s healthy and ready to play.  It appears the Grizzlies front office has other plans.

Via The Commercial Appeal:

“The most confusing part for me is I’m healthy,” Parsons told The Commercial Appeal. “I’m medically cleared by the people I work with every single day, that are experts at this kind of stuff, so it’s frustrating to watch a team struggle and I’m sitting there on the bench healthy, dying to play.”

Parsons went down early in the season with right knee soreness after earning a spot in the starting lineup in the preseason.  He was scheduled to return on December 21st and has been cleared to play.  

The drama in Memphis is coming to a head.  It sounds like they’re ready to move on from Parsons, but aren’t sure how to go about it.  It’s going to get worse before it gets better.
