Chandler Parsons to rejoin Grizzlies after extended leave

Chandler Parsons will rejoin the Memphis Grizzlies and be inserted into the rotation following the All-Star break after the franchise failed to find a suitable deal to move the forward by the trade deadline.

"I've been eager to get back on the court since I was cleared to play on Dec. 21," Parsons told ESPN on Saturday. "I'm glad the Grizzlies are giving me that opportunity. I've been training hard in Los Angeles for the last month and hoping I'd get a chance to play again this season. I'm ready to get back to Memphis and help my team win any way I can.
