Chandler Parsons’ NBA career might be in danger following his car accident last week. The veteran NBA forward has hired a law firm following his Jan. 15 crash and an eventual return to the court is up in the air.
The 31-year-old forward suffered “multiple severe and permanent injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation, and a torn labrum,” according to his law firm, Morgan & Morgan.
Parsons’ car was allegedly hit by a drunk driver at roughly 2 p.m. E.T. on Jan. 15.
His return to play is “unclear” per the release from his law firm.
