Forward Chandler Parsons’ debut for the Memphis Grizzlies has been bumped up to Sunday afternoon’s home game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Parsons originally planned to wait until Tuesday night to play, according to league sources, but he was declared ready after a phenomenal pregame workout Friday night. “Felt great in workout. I’m ready to rock,” Parsons told ESPN in a text message. “No reason to wait.”
