The NBA regular season is scheduled to begin on October 17. Teams are now finalizing their rosters for training camp. According to updates released by NBA management, new rules will be implemented concerning timeouts. Furthermore, the NBA board expects to have a more friendly game this season. Many players have been through a lot of conditioning and training during Offseason. Players like Nate McMillan, David Fizdale, Brad Stevens, Tyler Zeller, Julius Randle, and Chandler Parsons have undergone rehab to condition themselves before the season officially begins.

The offseason is almost over, and most players are already in the cities where their team is based.

Parsons’ poor play last season is due to his knee injury

Last season, veteran forward Chandler Parsons signed a four-year contract with the Memphis Grizzlies for a $98 million max deal. During training camp in 2016, Parsons was on light duty because of his Knee Surgery earlier that year. Parsons did not play in the first six regular games last season. He made his debut for the Grizzlies on November 6 against the Portland Trail Blazers but did not perform well. After playing six games, Parsons missed more time because of another injury to his left knee. He was ruled out indefinitely on March 13 after being diagnosed with a partial tear of the meniscus in his left knee.

Parsons says ‘I dedicated my entire summer to my body’

After being diagnosed with a tear in his left knee, Parsons had undergone an arthroscopic surgery” last March to repair the damage. Recently, the 28-year old player has uploaded a recorded video of himself on Instagram practicing at the Mav’s practice gym at American Airlines Center.

“Right now, it’s just conditioning and training,” Parsons said in his interview last Wednesday. To recover from his third knee surgery, Parsons had undergone and endured many regimens during the offseason. One of the workout regimens that Parsons had endured for the last months is a boxing workout. According to him, boxing has helped him a lot to recover from his injury and whip his body back into condition.

Parsons now enters his seventh season in the league. Since he made his NBA debut, Parsons has garnered career averages of 13.6 points, 0.4 blocks, 1.0 steals, 2.9 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game. As a previous member of the Rockets in 2013-14, Parsons has routinely shot near 40 percent from three-point range every game.
