Chandler Parsons' NBA career may be over.
A law firm representing the Hawks striker pointed out the realistic possibility that he had had to play with a suspected drunk driver in a car accident last week after serious injuries. He was added to the league's concussion record after the accident last Wednesday, but the injuries he sustained appear to be more serious.
Morgan & Morgan, who represents Parsons, said in a statement that the 31-year-old had "sustained several serious and permanent injuries, including traumatic brain injury, a herniated disc, and a torn labrum." The company also said the driver was arrested and charged with DUI.
The company told the driver who caused the crash who is not listed in the statement.
"Chandler was seriously injured in the crash, which should never have happened," said Morgan & Morgan. “The guilty driver created chaos on the road that unnecessarily endangered the lives of countless drivers. He is now charged with DUI, admitted to having alcohol in the car, and passed out after causing a three-car accident on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. that seriously injured and possibly injured Mr. Parsons' career finished a professional athlete. "
31-year-old Parsons, a second choice for Florida Rockets in 2011, has suffered knee injuries in recent years since signing a four-year contract with the Grizzlies in July 2016 for $ 94.8 million in just 100 Played played. He can never play again.
