Chandler Parsons (knee) was seen going through a light workout at practice on Saturday, though he remains out for the playoffs.
While there is no tear or structural damage to his right knee, he will have to undergo surgery and a timetable for his return will not be set until after the procedure. We will continue to track his progress closely, but it's encouraging to see him move around at practice. Richard Jefferson (calf) will likely continue to start if he is able to play, but Al-Farouq Aminu will likely be the primary beneficiary. Apr 25 - 2:22 PM

Chandler Parsons said that there is no tear or structural damage to his right knee, but it's not getting any better, and he will require surgery.

Parsons added that if the Mavs' first-round matchup hadn't been against the Rockets, he probably wouldn't have played at all. He's going to meet with a doctor in Chicago to determine exactly what surgery he will need to have, after which a surgery date and timetable for recovery will be set. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will see extended minutes in Dallas' rotations.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will visit with a doctor in Chicago before determining specifics about his upcoming surgery.

Parsons will miss the rest of the playoffs and will undergo surgery on his right knee once he finishes consulting with doctors. We'll update Parson's timetable once we know more, but the procedure isn't expected to be major so he'll likely be ready in time for training camp. Richard Jefferson will continue to start at small forward with Parsons out, while Al-Farouq Aminu will also pick up some extra minutes.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will miss the rest of the playoffs.

He is exploring surgery options to his right knee. Parsons aggravated his knee injury in Game 1 and tried to play through it. Despite little swelling, the Mavs will just keep him out until October. As it stands right now, there's no ligament damage and he'd probably be looking at a knee scope procedure. With Parsons out, Richard Jefferson will start at small forward with Al-Farouq Aminu getting more minutes.

According to Yahoo Sports, it is "impossible" for Chandler Parsons to return from his knee injury in the first round of the playoffs.

The Mavericks have already lost the first two games to Houston, so this news doesn't bode well for their chances of making a comeback. Parsons is expected to be reevaluated on Wednesday, so we should be able to provide another update shortly. If this report is true, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will have to step into larger roles for the rest of the series.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will not play in Game 2 on Tuesday and coach Rick Carlisle admitted that he may miss more games.

When asked whether Parsons could miss the remainder of the first round, Carlisle replied, "That does loom as a possibility ... I'm concerned." Richard Jefferson will start in place of Parsons at small forward, and Al-Farouq Aminu should also pick up extra minutes off the Mavs' bench. Parsons will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

Chandler Parsons (knee) was not present at shootaround on Tuesday.

While we already knew Parsons would be a game-time decision for Tuesday's Game 2, this certainly isn't good news for his availability. Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said he wouldn't have an update on Parsons until the evening, so we'll have to wait to see if Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will get increased run in the event that Parsons is unable to play.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is extremely sore on Monday and could be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

The good news is that his knee didn't swell up like it did last time. Parsons had some swelling in his knee following his injury on Apr. 2, so at least this aggravation isn't as bad. If Parsons can't go, the Mavs are really going to have a tough time containing James Harden because of all the fouls he'll draw. Richard Jefferson would start and one would think Al-Farouq Aminu would get more minutes because of the matchup. We'll have an update on Parsons tomorrow.

Updating a previous item, Chandler Parsons (knee) and Devin Harris (toe) are both questionable for Game 2 vs. Houston.

Parsons admitted to his knee giving out on him during Game 1, something that was pretty noticeable to anyone watching as he battled with a limp for the duration of the contest. Harris, on the other hand, aggravated his toe injury in Game 1 and was forced out of action. If both guys are on the sidelines, it would mean Richard Jefferson is likely to start with increased minutes for Al-Farouq Aminu. As for Harris' absence, that would open the door for more J.J. Barea.

Chandler Parsons aggravated his knee injury in the Mavericks Game 1 loss, and he's questionable to play in Game 2 vs. Houston on Tuesday.

"I just landed and I felt some pain," he said. "My leg just kind of gave out on me. I couldn’t really shake it. It didn’t feel great." Parsons then added, "Something happened when I landed and it was real painful. We have a lot of work to do here and I hope it doesn’t swell up overnight." Parsons is obviously not right, and he's unlikely to be 100 percent at any point in the opening round.

Chandler Parsons battled a knee injury against the Rockets on Saturday, finishing with 10 points, six boards, two assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

The Houston crowd must have remembered Parsons' famous picture with Mark Cuban over the summer when he signed a contract because they booed him throughout the game. Additionally, Parsons missed about 10 minutes in real time due to an aggravation to his knee injury, but he looked fine once he came back. The Mavs went in with a plan to monitor Parsons' minutes, but he likely would have been around 40 had he not missed time. The good news for Parsons is that he's off until Tuesday for Game 2.

Chandler Parsons went to the locker room in the second quarter on Saturday and has returned to action.

He threw down an emphatic slam in transition, but didn't look right following that play. Parsons walked back without a significant limp and he's likely just dealing with some soreness to his knee, which kept him out of action since Apr. 4.
Apr 18 - 10:35 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said "there's a plan in place" for Chandler Parsons' playing time on Saturday.

Parsons said his conditioning isn't up to par, so we're not expecting him to play more than 30 minutes in his first game back. He's going to start and should still be able to put up a decent line against his former team.
Apr 18 - 8:10 PM

Updating a previous report, Chandler Parsons (knee) said that he will definitely be in the starting lineup vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

Parsons said he had no setbacks after practicing in full on Friday, and the Mavericks will be thrilled to see him back after he missed the last six games of the season. His minutes might be held in check, but he is expected to spend some time defending James Harden. Richard Jefferson moves to the bench following this news while Al-Farouq Aminu should see a decreased role.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is expected to be in the starting lineup vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

He missed the final six games of the regular season due to pain and swelling in his knee, but it looks like he is ready to go after going through a full practice on Friday, Parsons will likely have to spend some time defending James Harden, but his minutes will likely be held in check as he regains his conditioning. Owners in daily leagues should probably avoid him for now. Richard Jefferson will move to the bench Saturday, while Al-Farouq Aminu will play less as well.
