Chandler Parsons is expected to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent.
Parsons has a $16M option, but it looks like it's just a matter of time until he officially declines it. CP's tenure (to date) has not gone according to plan in Dallas, and it's nowhere near certain that he'll return to the Mavs. Despite knee issues hampering his two-year run with the Mavs, Parsons figures to be a desired commodity on the open market and could command more money than Mark Cuban's team feels comfortable paying. In what has become an annual tradition, Dallas could be looking at some serious roster shuffling around Dirk Nowitzki this summer. We think Dirk deserves better for everything he's done and every sacrifice he's made for this franchise, but that's another story entirely. For what it's worth, President of Basketball Operations Donnie Nelson has been non-committal about a potential Parsons return. May 2 - 10:14 AM

Chandler Parsons spoke like a man planning on returning to the Mavs next season when discussing his upcoming free agency.

"Dallas is home to me. I loved it here," said Parsons. "I came here to be a great player and to win a lot of games, and I've yet to do that here. So I feel that I have a lot of unfinished business here that I'd love to continue and grow into the player that I saw myself being when I signed here." Parsons added that he plans to recruit Dwight Howard to Dallas once his own contract situation is worked out, and with these quotes, it would be surprising to see Parsons go somewhere else.

Chandler Parsons (knee) can do some light shooting now and has increased the work in his rehab.

He could possibly make it back for the second round, but there's almost no chance the Mavs will be able to get past OKC. Parsons looks like he will be able to have a somewhat normal offseason. Last summer, he had a procedure on his knee and didn't lose his minutes cap until January.
Apr 25 - 7:17 PM

Chandler Parsons has shed his knee brace, although he still remains extremely unlikely to be available for the second round of the playoffs.

The Mavs aren't likely to advance past the first round, so we likely won't see Parsons in uniform again this season. Parsons should be good to go when the 2016-17 season rolls around, and he could shape up to be a value pick if he slides far enough after an injury-plagued season.
Apr 21 - 7:02 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is open to returning to the Mavericks.

Parsons is expected to opt out of his contract after the 2015-16 season, but left the door open for a return to the Mavericks. "I love it here," Parsons said of Dallas. "My focus right now is to be healthy. The city has been great. I can see myself staying here and playing for a long time." We'll keep an eye on Parsons' recovery over the offseason, but he will be a risky mid-late round pick in standard fantasy drafts coming off another knee surgery.

Chandler Parsons (knee) left the door open for a potential return to the Houston Rockets as a free agent after the season.

Parsons is expected to opt out of his contract after the season and didn't rule out a return to his former team. "I wouldn't count [Houston] out," Parsons said. "Obviously, playing there three years, I had a great time there. We had a lot of success." While Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Parsons could possibly return for a late playoff run, it's unlikely we'll see him again this season and he may be wearing a different uniform for his fantasy owners next season.
Apr 7 - 9:13 AM

Mark Cuban said that Chandler Parsons (knee surgery) could return in the second round of the playoffs, assuming his rehab continues to go well.

The Mavs' announcement following surgery ruled Parsons out for the season, and it's important to note that Cuban was discussing a very optimistic scenario. This doesn't have any implications for fantasy purposes, unless you're prepping for a postseason-format league.
Mar 30 - 8:14 PM

Chandler Parsons underwent successful arthroscopic surgery for a meniscus tear in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season.

This is a tough blow for the Mavericks, and this means that they will not be able to utilize their small-ball lineups as much. Parsons is expected to be able to go through his normal offseason basketball workout routine, so the surgery shouldn't sideline him for too long. He's also expected to opt out of the final year of his deal with Dallas this summer and will likely pursue a max deal if he recovers in a timely fashion. With Parsons on the shelf, Salah Mejri is worth owning in standard leagues, while the rest of the Mavericks' starters get a boost as well.

Chandler Parsons could return this season after he undergoes arthroscopic surgery for a meniscus tear in his right knee according to the Associated Press.

The Mavericks have already ruled him out of their upcoming four-game road trip and coach Rick Carlisle wouldn't go into specifics. This would imply that the surgery would be a minor one, but it still sounds like he probably won't be able to return during the regular season. We'll have another update when the Mavericks release more details, but owners in fantasy playoffs should move on unless they have an IR spot.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will undergo season-ending surgery, according to the Dallas Morning News.

According to a source, Parsons probably needs arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, which would force him to miss the rest of the regular-season, although there's a chance he could make it back for the playoffs. Parsons will seek a second opinion, but has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear that needs to be surgically corrected. David Lee and Justin Anderson will see the biggest boost in playing time with Parsons out, with Dirk Nowitzki and Zaza Pachulia also seeing an uptick in usage.

Chandler Parsons (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Portland.

Hamstring injuries can be tricky, so there's a chance Parsons' absence extends beyond Sunday's game. With Parsons on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for David Lee, Justin Anderson and Zaza Pachulia, and Dirk Nowitzki will be asked to do a bit more on offense. For now, we'll be considering Parsons questionable for Wednesday's rematch against the Blazers.

Chandler Parsons (hamstring), Wesley Matthews (lower extremity) and Deron Williams (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.

Parsons' status was upgraded from doubtful, so that's a really good sign. With the Mavericks trying to secure their playoff spot, Parsons may have to play at less than 100 percent down the stretch. If he isn't able to play on Sunday, there should be more minutes available for Justin Anderson and David Lee.
Mar 20 - 9:41 AM

Chandler Parsons (hamstring) is doubtful to play against the Blazers on Sunday.

He was walking with a limp on Saturday and he is likely to miss time here. The good news for Parsons is the Mavs are off until Wednesday following Sunday's game. The Mavs have been going small a lot these days, but losing Parsons would change that plan. If he does miss time, there will be more minutes for J.J. Barea, David Lee and Raymond Felton.
Mar 19 - 2:44 PM

Rick Carlisle said that Chandler Parsons is dealing with a strained right hamstring, and he does not consider the injury serious.

While Carlisle doesn't feel the injury is serious, hamstring injuries can be tricky, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Parsons sit out Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. Carlisle added that Parsons will come in for treatment on Saturday before determining his status for Sunday's game, so owners can expect another update tomorrow. If he's forced to the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for David Lee, Zaza Pachulia and Justin Anderson, while Raymond Felton could see a larger role in the offense. Stay tuned.

Chandler Parsons (sore right hamstring) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

Parsons will finish Friday's game with 14 points, three boards, two triples, three steals and one turnover in 22 minutes. He hasn't dealt with any hamstring issues since 2014, but this is the same leg that required the hybrid micro-fracture knee surgery during the offseason, so there's a chance he's forced to the sidelines for Sunday's game against Portland. If he's out, David Lee, Zaza Pachulia and Justin Anderson will have the opportunity for more minutes, with Lee offering the most upside.
