Forward Chandler Parsons will not be cleared to play in the Memphis Grizzlies season opener as the team continues to exercise caution in his return from the second surgery on his right knee, coach David Fizdale told reporters Monday. John Stones Jersey .The knee was the primary reason that the Dallas Mavericks did not attempt to re-sign Parsons, who signed a four-year, $94 million maximum contract with the Grizzlies in free agency. Parsons had season-ending surgeries on the knee each of the past two years.Parsons began full participation in Grizzlies practices last week and hoped to be cleared to play in the opener. He told ESPN over the weekend that he was experiencing no problems at all with the knee. However, Parsons understood that the Grizzlies would err on the side of caution after making such a major financial investment in him, plus he needs to work his way into basketball shape.Fizdale also told reporters that center Marc Gasol would have a minutes restriction early in the season. Gasol had season-ending surgery in February to replace a non-displaced Type II fracture of the navicular bone of his right foot. He had a bone bruise in the foot during the preseason that the team said was not related to the previous injury.Parsons had surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee in May. He had hybrid microfracture surgery on the knee the previous spring and was on a strict minutes restriction for the first two months of the season.Parsons, who turns 28 on Tuesday, recovered to play the best basketball of his career last season. He averaged 18.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 51.9 percent from the floor and 47.7 percent from 3-point range over a two-month stretch before re-injuring the knee. Nick Pope Jersey . Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. Harry Maguire Jersey . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. http://www.englandsoccerpro.com/Marcus-Rashford-England-Jersey/ . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mark Teixeira is headed back to New York earlier than his fellow Yankees to get his troublesome right wrist examined. The way they are crumbling at the end of this road trip, the rest of the Yankees probably cant wait to be back in the Bronx, either. Erick Aybar homered and drove in two runs, and Albert Pujols added two more RBIs in the Angels 6-2 victory Saturday night, sending New York to its fifth straight defeat. The Yankees are running low on healthy hitters during their second five-game losing streak in three weeks. Despite decent work from David Phelps (4-4), who yielded nine hits and four runs while pitching into the seventh, New York couldnt solve Angels starter Tommy Hanson or match Los Angeles balanced lineup, which has 25 hits in the series first two games. Although manager Joe Girardi is optimistic he will get Teixeira back soon, any absence is trouble for a team already missing Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Kevin Youkilis. "Anytime youve got injuries happening, and its concurrent and happening repeatedly, its always tough," Yankees catcher Chris Stewart said. "But we started injured at the beginning of the year and had guys fill in, and this is just another instance where were going to have to have guys step up and do the job. Injuries are going to happen every year, and this year more than most." Brett Gardner had an RBI triple for the Yankees, who matched their worst skid of the season. Jayson Nix drove in Gardner in the third inning, but New York managed just two more hits in the final six innings -- both by Ichiro Suzuki. "Its like two steps forward, one step back," Yankees designated hitter Lyle Overbay said. "I mean, its frustrating. These guys (who are injured) play 155 games a year, so theyre dependent on playing day in and day out. Thats the discouraging part of it. But hopefully well get those guys back and they stay. Theres some bad luck going on, but well figure it out." The Yankees have lost 27 of their last 39 games at the Big A, and their overall skid got even more foreboding when Teixeira left in the fourth inning with an aggravated right wrist. The $180 million slugger flied out to right and popped out to third before leaving in the fourth inning when David Adams replaced him at first base. Teixeira is hitless in 12 at-bats and is just 8 for 53 since coming off the disabled list on May 31 with a torn sheath on his right wrist. "Its the first time hes come to us, really, and said something," Girardi said. "I thinnk he just doesnt feel that he has the whip that he normally does hitting left-handed, so well see what it is. Trent Alexander-Arnold Jersey. ... Ive always said that wrist is tricky, so Im concerned." Hanson (4-2) recorded a season-high eight strikeouts while pitching five-hit ball into the seventh inning for the Angels, who have won three straight after a four-game skid. "This was the most confident Ive felt all year," said Hanson, just the third pitcher in 20 years to win in each of his first three career appearances against the Yankees. "Obviously, I needed a little time to deal with what I was dealing with, but I feel like Im getting back to a rhythm. Im back to a normal routine." The big right-hander delivered his strongest start since returning from a 27-day gap between starts in May while he was on the Angels restricted list, mentally dealing with his stepbrothers death. Against the Yankees, Hanson walked just one and allowed the second-fewest hits in any start of his debut season with Los Angeles. He also got plenty of help from his teammates. Josh Hamilton had an RBI double, and Aybar hit an early homer before delivering a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth. Howie Kendrick had three hits and drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning of his fourth straight multi-hit game. Mike Trout drew three walks and scored two runs. "A lot of guys are really swinging the bats real well," said Kendrick, who leads the AL with 24 hits while batting .500 in June. "One through nine, different guys are doing it every time. We just want to play good baseball. Were not worried about the standings or whatever. We just want to win." Aybar put the Angels ahead in the second inning with a low drive that barely cleared the short fence in the right-field corner for the shortstops second homer of the season. After Aybar drove in Mark Trumbo with the go-ahead run in the sixth, Hamilton bounced an RBI double down the first-base line in the seventh against reliever Shawn Kelley. NOTES: The Yankees stole four bases against Hanson, who has yielded 14 stolen bases this season. "I cant hold runners on first base," Hanson said with a chuckle. "Im terrible at that." ... Suzuki doubled in the fourth inning, but was caught trying to steal third base. Television replays showed Suzuki might have been safe even though Hank Congers throw beat him to the bag, and Girardi had an animated argument with umpire Manny Gonzalez. ... Yankees LHP Andy Pettitte turned 41 on Saturday, and Eduardo Perez turned 26. ' ' '
