Chandler Parsons hit 10-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for a season-high 32 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.
Parsons' back injury is hopefully behind him and he was playing very well before sitting out on Saturday. Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points and 10 boards in the win, and both players should be in starting lineups whenever they're in uniform for the Mavericks. Dec 17 - 11:25 PM

Chandler Parsons returned from his back injury and had 13 points, three rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting.

Like Dirk Nowitzki, CP played just 23 minutes in tonight's blowout win. He should be good to go from here, so make sure he's back in your lineup after he missed Saturday's game.

Chandler Parsons (back) will start on Tuesday as the Mavericks take on the Knicks, sending Richard Jefferson back to the bench.

Parsons was really getting it going before having to sit out of Saturday's game, so get him active as he has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Knicks. Jefferson can be sent back to the waiver wire in most leagues.
Dec 16 - 6:45 PM

Chandler Parsons (back) is still dealing with back stiffness on Monday.

ESPN Dallas beat writer Tim MacMahon said Parsons has a "good chance" he'll play on Tuesday night against the Knicks. Parsons missed Saturday and the Mavericks ill likely list him as questionable in the next few hours. If he's out, Richard Jefferson would get another start and be worth a look in deep leagues. The Mavericks do only have three games this week.

Chandler Parsons reconstructed his free-throw shot during the offseason.

Parsons shot 70.5 percent from the line with the Rockets, but he's shooting just 71.8 percent this year. Parsons added that he's working on improvement with Rick Carlisle, and admitted his successes or failures can be mental. "I keep the ball higher," he said. "I don't bring it down like I used to. And my right foot is in front of my left now."
Dec 15 - 9:09 AM

Chandler Parsons (back) went through most of Sunday's practice, and is hopeful he'll be able to suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

"Today I went through pretty much everything," said Parsons. "It's still really sore, but it’s getting better every day. But we’re still not there yet" Parsons return to practice is a positive sign, and hopefully having Monday off will give him enough time to recover for Tuesday's game. However, if he's unable to go Monta Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki will be tasked with more offensive responsibilities. Stay tuned.
Dec 14 - 2:15 PM

Chandler Parsons (back) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

This is a tough blow for owners, as Parsons was really starting to heat up after a slow start to the season. He is said to be dealing with lower back soreness and we should know more about his status moving forward shortly. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect Jae Crowder and Al-Farouq Aminu to see some extended run Saturday, with neither being a reliable option.
Dec 13 - 1:24 PM

Chandler Parsons (back) and Jameer Nelson (shoulder) are game-time decisions for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

For what it is worth, coach Rick Carlisle said he wasn't as optimistic about Parsons playing as he was about Nelson, so this does not sound good. Owners should have a backup plan ready and if Parsons sits Jae Crowder and Al-Farouq Aminu would likely see more minutes. Stay tuned.

Chandler Parsons (back) is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

To be clear, we don't think he will miss the opportunity to play against the talented Warriors but owners will still want to be on alert for any updates. He tweaked his back in Wednesday's game, though he was still able to play through it. Parsons has recently broken out of his slump and has been on fire recently so it would be a shame if he had to miss this one. Check back before tip-off for official confirmation before plugging him into lineups.
Dec 13 - 9:49 AM

Chandler Parsons (back) is questionable to face the Warriors on Saturday.

He needed some extra stretching on Wednesday and did go to the locker room. Parsons is likely dealing with some stiffness since he was able to return. He appears to be on the good side of this questionable tag for now, but his owners will want to check back. If he's out, Al-Farouq Aminu and Richard Jefferson would likely get more minutes.
Dec 12 - 2:04 PM

Chandler Parsons went to the locker room to get his back stretched out, but played through it to finish with 20 points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's win.

He hit 8-of-13 shots and is finally rolling for the Mavs, averaging 21.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 3.0 3-pointers over his last five games. The slow start is officially a thing of the past. Just keep an eye out for news about his back over the next couple days if you own him.
Dec 11 - 12:55 AM

Chandler Parsons scored a season-high 30 points in Tuesday's loss in Memphis, hitting 10-of-17 field goals with six 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

He also made 4-of-5 free throws and turned the ball over just once in 34 minutes of action, marking his best all-around game since joining the Mavs. Parsons is closing in on top-75 fantasy value in nine-cat leagues, and could rise even higher if he improves his sub-par 42.9 percent shooting.
Dec 9 - 10:36 PM

Chandler Parsons came one point shy of his season-high in scoring on Sunday, finishing a win vs. the Bucks with 28 points on 11-of-14 shooting, including four 3-pointers.

Parsons added five rebounds, one assist and one block with two turnovers, and he racked up his stats in a mere 31 minutes on the court. His numbers are down compared to last season with Houston but he's starting to find his groove in the Mavs' high-powered offense. Any improvement in his 41.0 percent shooting would lock him into mid-round value.
Dec 7 - 10:20 PM

Chandler Parsons would like more playmaking opportunities in Dallas' offense.

"I’m not a shooter," Parsons said after Tuesday’s shootaround at the United Center. "I shouldn’t just be a spot-up shooter. That’s not what I do. My best attribute is playmaking and making guys better, finding guys and making the game come easier for everybody else." Parsons numbers are down a bit from last year, but that should be expected as he adjusts to a new system on a new team. He's averaging 14.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.9 three-pointers per game this season, but he's also shooting just 41.2 percent from the field. Crafty owners can view this as a buy-low opportunity, as his career shooting percentage of 46.8 hints that his numbers will eventually trend upward.

Chandler Parsons scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in Monday's loss to the Pacers.

Parsons has started off very slow and this should still be viewed as a buy low opportunity, but the clock is ticking for him to prove he can earn his keep in fantasy leagues.
