DALLAS (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the situation says Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons will have arthroscopic surgery for a meniscus tear in his right knee but might not be finished for the season.

The team says Tuesday that Parsons will not make the upcoming four-game road trip with a right knee injury, and coach Rick Carlisle declined to discuss the specifics. The person spoke of Parsons’ injury on the condition of anonymity because details weren’t released.

Parsons left in the third quarter of Friday’s loss to Golden State with what the team said was right hamstring soreness. He missed Sunday’s win over Portland.

The Mavericks play the Trail Blazers again Wednesday night before going on to Golden State, Sacramento and Denver.
