Former Grizzlies player injured after being hit by drunk driver

Chandler Parsons injured in DUI crash

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Former Memphis Grizzlies player Chandler Parsons, who now plays for the Atlanta Hawks, was injured in a car crash last week.

According to NBC Sports, Parsons attorneys say he suffered multiple injuries including a traumatic brain injury, herniated disc and a torn labrum.

His lawyers say the other driver was charged with a DUI.

It is unclear if Parsons will be able to return to the team.

Parsons is in the final season of a four-year contract he signed with the Grizzlies in 2016. He was traded to the Hawks last summer.
