It appears that Florida senior forward Chandler Parsons is determined to play Sunday at LSU.
Parsons, who suffered a deep thigh bruise when he collided with teammate Alex Tyus last Saturday against Tennessee, just tweeted, “Leg is getting better, rehabbing three times a day to get ready for LSU. About to do some pool workouts.”
Parsons did not practice with the team on Thursday and remains day-to-day. His status for LSU will continue to be evaluated.
We’ll know more about Parsons and whether he’ll travel with the team when we speak to Florida coach Billy Donovan on Friday. Parsons, who played though most of the Tennessee game with the thigh bruise, has started 42 straight games dating back to last season.
Parsons, who played though most of last Saturday’s 61-60 win over the Vols with the thigh bruise, has made 42 straight starts dating back to last season. He’s averaging 10.8 points per game and ranks fourth in the Southeastern Conference in rebounding at 7.7 rebounds per game. Parsons also ranks eighth in the SEC in assists at 3.6 apg.
