The Memphis Grizzlies already lost guard Mike Conley to the news of season-ending heel surgery this weekend, but forward Chandler Parsons is adamant that he will not be following similar suit.

Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal revealed on Sunday that the Grizzlies have approached Parsons’ camp about the possibility of an injury retirement. Tillery did note that the info was “not confirmed” however.

As Tillery predicted though, the denials came in quick as Parsons tweeted the following less than 30 minutes after Tillery’s original post:

Parsons, 29, has played in just 26 games for Memphis this season thanks to his persistent knee troubles and is managing a measly 8.8 points a game. This comes after a 2016-17 season where he only made 34 appearances for them and put up even worse numbers (6.2 points per game).

Regardless of whether or not medical retirement is on the table, Parsons’ four-year, $94 million contract with the team is looking more and more disastrous by the day, and Grizzlies fans already sound fed up with him.
