Coach David Fizdale said the Grizzlies will take baby steps with Chandler Parsons, but his increase in playing time looks like it may be more of a crawl. We're assuming he's going to have a restriction until the postseason. Feb 24 - 9:30 PM

Coach David Fizdale said the team will take "baby steps" with Chandler Parsons going forward.

While he did sit in a non-back-to-back game on Feb. 10, Parsons' minutes have been trending up with 23.0 minutes per game in February. Fizdale said he's seen Parsons get stronger, have more confidence, and could see him playing consistent minutes. The coach said the goal is to get him ready to roll for the playoffs and he will still have a minutes restriction. Parsons is just not worth owning in most leagues.

Chandler Parsons scored nine points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He may have looked his best all season and had a pretty layup in this game (video in link below). Even with a week off, Parsons is still likely to see some days off for rest after the break. He is just not worth the trouble in most fantasy leagues.

Chandler Parsons finished with just two points, seven rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes in Monday's victory in Brooklyn.

Parsons sat out the Grizzlies previous game on Friday as part of his maintenance porgram. The 25 minutes on Monday actually tied a season-high for minutes played this season. The fact that he scored a total of two points in a game in which he tied his season-high in minutes tells you all you need to know about Parsons' 2016-17 fantasy campaign. He's probably not worth a roster spot in most standard leagues at this point.
Feb 13 - 10:32 PM

Chandler Parsons is starting on Monday vs. the Nets.

Tony Allen is getting the night off to rest, so James Ennis will remain in the starting lineup alongside Parsons. Parsons is rested a ton and his restrictions have no end in sight, so he's not worth the trouble in most leagues right now.
Feb 13 - 6:44 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Warriors on Friday.

It's not even in a back-to-back set for Parsons. His fantasy owners just have to cut him at this point due to poor play and no end in sight for his minutes limit. With him out, James Ennis will start while Troy Daniels could be in the rotation.
Feb 9 - 7:44 PM

Chandler Parsons had a solid game vs. Phoenix on Wednesday, scoring eight points with a season-high seven assists, three rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

Parsons shot just 3-of-7 from the field, and 0-of-2 from the line, but the Grizzlies will live with it. He's struggling to create his own shots, so if he can create for teammates it's better than nothing. Parsons has been lousy all season and he still hasn't played more than 25 minutes in a game, so it'll take more than one decent game to pump up his fantasy appeal.
Feb 9 - 12:56 AM

Chandler Parsons was back from a rest on Monday but hit just 1-of-10 shots for three points, five rebounds and a steal in an 89-74 win over the Spurs.

The lost season just rolls along for Parsons, who seems to sit as often as he plays, and has scored in double figures in just six of his 24 games this season. He belongs on waivers until he proves that he can handle minutes and start producing consistently.
Feb 7 - 12:42 AM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday.

This was 100 percent expected as the Grizzlies take it easy on their max guy. Parsons is just too annoying to own right now. For tonight, James Ennis should be looking at huge minutes while Troy Daniels should be the 3-point guy for this team. We'll see who the Grizzlies call up here, but expect some Andrew Harrison and Vince Carter minutes, too.
Feb 4 - 2:56 PM

Chandler Parsons scored 12 points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

He's almost certainly out on Saturday night for rest. While this game was solid, Parsons is just way too annoying to own in almost any league.
Feb 4 - 1:03 AM

Chandler Parsons returned from a day of rest on Monday vs. the Suns, scoring two points on 0-of-3 shooting.

He knocked down a pair of free throws and that was about it, adding two rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 21 minutes. The Grizzlies left him in the game during garbage time, so maybe that's a sign that they're trying to prepare him for more minutes. He's one of the most annoying players to own in fantasy and is just a stash if your fantasy team is in a good position in the standings.
Jan 31 - 1:31 AM

Chandler Parsons (rest) is starting against the Suns on Monday.

James Ennis will return to the bench. Parsons still isn't cleared for back-to-back sets despite averaging just 18.2 minutes per game in January, so he's just a stash until his restrictions are lifted.
Jan 30 - 10:21 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday night.

This is off a back-to-back set, so this is all a part of the plan. James Ennis played 37 minutes in his last start, but didn't turn in much on the stat sheet with six points, six boards, one steal and two 3-pointers. Parsons is just not playing well enough to own and Ennis is really just a desperation stream.
Jan 28 - 5:46 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) returned to action on Friday vs. the Blazers and scored eight points on 2-of-6 shooting.

He played 21 minutes and added two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers. Parsons sent out a tweet after the game wishing the Blazers luck in the draft lottery, to which C.J. McCollum responded: "We hit the lottery by not signing you." Parsons' fantasy owners would have to agree. He's just a stash right now and could be rested on Saturday vs. the Jazz.
Jan 28 - 2:13 AM

Chandler Parsons (knee) and JaMychal Green (knee) will play against the Blazers on Friday.

We do have to give the Grizzlies props for giving us the heads up before lineup lock -- they are one of our favorites. As for Parsons, he's going to have a minutes limit for a long time and will be unreliable as anything more than a stash in season long.
