Chandler Parsons didn't do much in his 19 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring six points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.
He was just 1-of-6 from the field to drop him to just 36.7 percent from the field on the season. Parsons has been an unmitigated disaster for his fantasy owners to this point and has barely been a top-300 player per game on the season. If there is anything promising out there, it makes some sense to drop Parsons. Jan 18 - 10:04 PM

Chandler Parsons made 1-of-7 from the field for five points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

No revenge game here, folks. He attempted five shots from deep to drop him to just 11-of-47 (23.4 percent) on the season. He said he was also worried about his plus/minus, but he had the team-low -11 tonight. Parsons has been a disaster this season, so we obviously don't blame you on cutting him.

Chandler Parsons said he's figuring out ways to help the team and "have a good plus/minus" while he's out there.

Score one for the stat nerds! "These last two or three games are something to build on," Parsons said. "It’s tough trying to be efficient and to be aggressive playing within the offense." He scored a season-high 14 points on Wednesday and may wind up playing 20 minutes soon. It's still going to be a while before Parsons is turning in usable value, but he's a fine stash.

Chandler Parsons scored a season-high 14 points against the Thunder on Wednesday, adding one steal in 18 minutes.

He missed all three from deep to drop him to just 23.8 percent on the season, which is getting close to almost 20 percentage points worse than his 41.4 percent last season. The good news is Parsons started the third quarter, so his restriction is getting softer. He should be better, but it'll be a while before his owners can trust him.
Jan 11 - 11:27 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) finished Sunday's game with nine points on 3-of-4 shooting, two 3-pointers, one rebound and one assist in 16 minutes.

It's been a brutal season for Parsons, trying the patience of even his most optimistic owners, but he's looked much more comfortable in the past two games. His shot isn't as flat as it was, and the decision to give him all his minutes in the first half is helping him find a rhythm. Until his minute-limit increases, however, he'll be hard-pressed to help most owners.
Jan 8 - 11:06 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) is a go for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

With Parsons at less than 100 percent, he's extremely unlikely to earn much more than 15 minutes tonight. Because he hasn't shown us much of anything this season, Parsons is only a deep-league stash, and with a limited workload tonight he's far from a "must start" option in most scenarios.
Jan 8 - 2:08 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jazz.

He didn't go through the morning shootaround and he's shaping up to be a game-time call. Parsons has only been playing around 15 minutes per game, but James Ennis would get the biggest bump if Parsons can't give it a go.
Jan 8 - 12:13 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) played 16 minutes and scored 10 points in his return to action on Friday night in Golden State.

Parsons did not play Wednesday as part of the Grizzlies maintenance program, as he works his way back from knee issues. The production-per-minute is fine, but it is still concerning that Parsons only saw 16 minutes in a game that went into overtime. Hopefully, Parson will avoid any setbacks and stay healthy over the second half of the season.
Jan 7 - 9:26 AM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

The writing was on the wall with the Grizzlies calling up Troy Williams for tonight. Parsons has been a shell of himself all season and played just 15 minutes with two points on Tuesday. If you're going to stash him, it's not going to be fun. That said, Parsons has shown some nice upside.
Jan 4 - 7:20 PM

Chandler Parsons is confident he'll be able to return to form this season.

"People said I couldn’t get back to after the first microfracture, and I averaged 20 [points] and six [rebounds] for three months and played the best basketball of my life after the most serious surgery you can probably have as an NBA player. So obviously I enjoy the struggle right now, I enjoy getting back in shape and playing in games. It just makes the success that I’ll have that much sweeter." Parsons also acknowledged that he's not in "game shape," and his shot is "flat," at the moment, but he believes he'll be able to turn things around once he gets his sea legs under him.

Chandler Parsons hit 1-of-6 shots in 15 minutes for two points, two rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.

Parsons has been back (on and off) since Dec. 21, but hasn't scored more than seven points in any of his six games since then. And while it feels like he'll eventually get healthy and start playing at a high level, it's far from a guarantee. If you're in a daily lineup league it's almost impossible to hold Parsons right now. If you're in a weekly lineup league where you can put him on the bench, it makes a little more sense to show some patience here. But the jury's still out on whether or not this will be a lost season for Parsons. Given that it's January and he's still getting just 15 minutes a game (and not doing much with them), some of us are leaning toward that being the case.
Jan 4 - 1:04 AM

Chandler Parsons scored seven points with one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

There is a lot of rust for Parsons and it's very clear he's going to have a minutes cap for about a month -- maybe longer, too. He's still worth owning for most owners, but he will seriously test your patience until about the All-Star Game.

Chandler Parsons returned from a day of rest on Thursday vs. the Thunder and scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting with three assists and two steals in 15 minutes.

Since returning from his latest knee injury, Parsons is averaging 2.0 points, 1.8 assists, 1.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.0 3-pointers in 14.3 minutes over his last four games. He hasn't been playing well and really has no business being in fantasy lineups right now, so treat him like a stash going forward.

Andrew Harrison, Tony Allen, Chandler Parsons, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol will start against the Thunder on Thursday.

Parsons is still going to have a minutes limit, but maybe he gets more than 12 minutes. We'll see how Andrew Harrison can do in the starting unit after a brutal offensive stretch. James Ennis moves to the bench.

Chandler Parsons (rest) will play against the Thunder on Thursday.

He is going to have a limit and played just 12 minutes on Monday. Parsons could get into the teens for minutes tonight, but the Grizzlies have made it clear they will limit him for possibly over a month. He should be worth owning, but it'll be a while before he turns a profit for his fantasy owners.
