Before signing with Memphis, Parsons had never played fewer than 61 games in a season in the NBA with stints in Houston and Dallas.At media day in September, Parsons said he thought his knee issues were past him after playing with no limitations during the summer.“Let’s face it, the last two years have gone horribly and not the way I planned, but the reasons why I came to Memphis are still all intact,” Parsons said then.Parsons last played for Memphis on Oct. 22, going scoreless in just over six minutes in a win at Utah. Now the Grizzlies have lost five straight and are 2-8 over their last 10 games. They have dropped to 12th in the Western Conference after sitting atop the West at 12-5 in late November.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño It’s been a busy few days for the Grizzlies.Wallace apologized Thursday for an apparent altercation in the locker room between Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi after a loss to Detroit the night before.
