The law firm, in an email to several media outlets including The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, on Monday claimed that Parsons suffered “severe and permanent injuries including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and torn labrum.”
In announcing the accident and injuries, the Hawks listed Parsons as out with a concussion and whiplash. He was placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol. There was no timetable given for Parsons’ return. On Monday, the Hawks, updated the injury report to include associated disc injury following the law firm email. The team declined further comment other than the updated injury report.
