KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee freshman Candace Parker will likely find out this week whether she is going to play basketball this season.
Parker has missed the entire season after having two surgeries on her left knee in the fall. Parker begin practicing in December, but has been hampered because of swelling in her knee.
Parker, a 6-foot-3 forward, is considered one of the most decorated female high school players ever. She was the first woman to win the slam-dunk contest that was part of the Mc-Donald's high school All-American Game activities.
Coach Pat Summitt has put off making a public announcement about whether Parker will redshirt.
