MacMahon: Parsons' injury terrible timing for Mavericks (2:25)

ESPN Dallas reporter Tim MacMahon breaks down the Mavericks' options now that Chandler Parsons will likely be out for the season following knee surgery. (2:25)

Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons underwent successful surgery to address the torn meniscus in his right knee Friday morning.

Mavs team physician Daniel Worrel performed the arthroscopic procedure in Dallas. Parsons will miss the remainder of the season but is expected to go through his normal offseason basketball workout routine.

This marks the second consecutive year that Parsons' season ends prematurely because of surgery on his right knee. However, sources told ESPN earlier this week that this injury is not nearly as severe as the cartilage damage he suffered last season that was repaired with a hybrid microfracture procedure on May 1.

Parsons, who averaged 13.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 61 games this season, endured a difficult rehabilitation process after last year's surgery. He missed the entire preseason and sat out the season opener, then dealt with strict minutes restrictions for the first six weeks of the season.
