DALLAS (AP) - Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons will miss the rest of the season after surgery on his right knee.

The team said Parsons had arthroscopic surgery Friday to address an injury to his right medial meniscus. It is the second year in a row that Parsons’ season has ended prematurely because of right knee surgery.

The latest injury isn’t considered as serious as the one that knocked Parsons out of the first round of the playoffs last season. He had a long rehabilitation after that surgery that carried over into training camp and limited his playing time early this season.

Parsons averaged 13.7 points in 61 games this season, but averaged 18.3 points and 5.8 rebounds in his final 30 games since Jan. 12.
