The team said Parsons sustained a concussion and whiplash.

Parsons will enter the NBA's concussion protocol and won't travel with the Hawks for their game Friday at San Antonio.

The Hawks provided no additional details on the accident.

Parsons is in his first and likely only season with Atlanta, which acquired him from Memphis last summer in a trade of overpriced players.
