Chandler Parsons of the Atlanta Hawks suffered “multiple severe and permanent injuries” after being hit by a driver arrested for DUI.

Parsons reportedly suffered a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and a torn labrum.

“Chandler was in peak physical condition at the time of the wreck,” his representatives said. “He is now working with a team of doctors to regain his health, and at this time, his ability to return to play is unclear.”

The accident occurred on Jan. 15 after practice and the original report was that Parsons suffered a concussion and whiplash.

Parsons hadn’t played much at all this season and now it sounds like his career could unfortunately be in jeopardy.
