Haynes had an update today and it’s not good. Parsons’ law firm, Morgan & Morgan, issued a statement further detailing the multiple injuries suffered by their client, and added that the person who hit Parsons has been charged with a DUI.
Haynes then reported via Twitter that Parsons’ NBA career may be in jeopardy.
Chandler Parsons’ attorney on the condition of his client, says he’s ‘seriously’ injured “and potentially ending Mr. Parsons’ career as a professional athlete.” https://t.co/TtLHWXyz8c— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) January 20, 2020
