Chandler Parsons played 24 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for six points, two rebounds, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in a loss to Portland on Monday.
Parsons has now quietly played in six straight games and while he's not exactly killing it, he's someone to keep a close eye on. Now that he's getting regular minutes and not missing games, he has the potential to get hot and start contributing for the Grizzlies. Nov 20 - 11:23 PM

Chandler Parsons hit 7-of-9 from the field while finishing with a team-high 17 points in Saturday's loss against the Rockets.

Parsons added two rebounds and an assist while hitting 1-of-2 from behind the arc. He was a complete disaster last season in his first year with Memphis, averaging a career-low 6.2 PPG and 2.5 PPG across 34 games. He has been showing signs of life lately, posting double-digit point totals in three of his past four while hitting a 3-pointer in a season-best five in a row. Parsons still has work to do, but fantasy owners in standard leagues can trust him again.
Nov 18 - 10:54 PM

Chandler Parsons will start on Saturday night and James Ennis will move to the bench.

Parsons will join Mario Chalmers, Dillon Brooks, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol in the first unit. Parsons has played a lot of power forward, but coach David Fizdale will shift him to the three today in a revenge game. Parsons was up to 25 minutes in the last game and he could be closer to 27 today. He's playing well enough to be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 6:34 PM

Chandler Parsons logged a season-high 25 minutes on Wednesday, going 5-of-7 from the field with three 3-pointers for 13 points.

Parsons added three rebounds and two assists. The playing time could indicate that Memphis is loosening his minute restriction, but they might also have felt comfortable giving him extra burn since they're off until Saturday. Until he can consistently get minutes in the high 20s, it'll be hard for Parsons to tempt 12-team owners.
Nov 15 - 11:30 PM

Chandler Parsons logged 20 minutes vs. Houston on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

Parsons picked up his second DNP-CD on Sunday and the Grizzlies continue to be very cautious, but he's slowing averaging more minutes with at least 20 in his past three appearances. If you've held him this long, despite the severe restrictions, you might as well see if the playing time continues to trend up through Thanksgiving.
Nov 11 - 10:50 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) did not play well in his return to action on Tuesday, finishing with just three points, two boards, one 3-pointer and five turnovers in 23 minutes.

Head coach David Fizdale seems reluctant to put Parsons on the floor for more than 20-something minutes a night, and Parsons will be rested in random back-to-back sets, so he's not worth owning anywhere.
Nov 8 - 3:21 AM

Chandler Parsons will continue to be rested in the second half of back-to-back sets, according to coach David Fizdale.

Fizdale will juggle his rotations to make up for Parsons' absence in these situations, including Sunday's game, and it sounds like the restriction will be in place indefinitely. Guys like Tyreke Evans, Jarell Martin and Dillon Brooks stand to gain some minutes in his absence.
Nov 5 - 8:15 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) and Wayne Selden (quad) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

Parsons logged a season-high 20 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday, so the Grizzlies will play it safe and keep him on the sidelines for a game against a team that they should be able to beat without his services. Tyreke Evans, Jarell Martin and Dillon Brooks should see an uptick in minutes with Parsons on the sidelines.

Chandler Parsons played a season-high 20 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

The Grizzlies made some rotation tweaks here and it looks like they're going to play Parsons almost exclusively as a stretch four. There seems to be a very clear plan on his minutes with a slight upward trend from a 15 minute opener, to 16 for a few, 19 for three games and now he may start to climb into the 20s. Parsons probably won't be a 24-minute guy in the next month or so, but he could have some solid value in most standard leagues. There's a good chance he doesn't play on Sunday, though.
Nov 4 - 6:49 PM

Chandler Parsons scored one point with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes against the Magic on Wednesday.

He's still on a minutes limit and he finally had a bad game as a scorer. Parsons was among the league leaders in efficiency on offense and is having a very good season on defense, but he'll be up and down in fantasy. Most fantasy owners should be able to do better.
Nov 2 - 12:38 AM

David Fizdale implied that Chandler Parsons is still on a minutes limit.

"Yeah. I'm not gonna kill him," said Fizdale of Parsons when asked about a minutes limit. "But, if he's rollin', I'll let him roll." To this point, Parsons has yet to exceed the 19-minute mark, although he has seen a gradual increase from his 15-minute opener. The Grizzlies will be bringing along Parsons slowly, but if he could ever consistently get into that 25-minute range, he'd have a much greater potential to churn out 12-team value. He's more of a deep league stash at the moment.
Oct 31 - 2:26 PM

Chandler Parsons played 19 minutes and hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, five rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss to the Hornets.

Parsons is slowly getting healthy and more comfortable, but is still tough to own. He had an amazing night on Saturday when he hit 9-of-11 shots for 24 points in 19 minutes. Once the minutes creep into the mid-20s, he should start putting up more consistent production. If you want to stash him, it may not be a bad idea. Just don't expect any miracles.
Oct 30 - 10:49 PM

Chandler Parsons sounded relieved after Saturday's impressive performance vs. the Rockets.

"That was awesome. I've been waiting on tonight for a really long time," Parsons said after making 9 of 11 shots for 24 points in just 19 minutes. "It's all about confidence with me. I felt like everything I threw up there was going to go in." This line is hard to ignore, but fantasy owners are going to need to see this again before taking a flier. He also hasn't been playing much, averaging just 16.2 minutes per game with one DNP-rest.

Chandler Parsons ended up with 24 points in just 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Rockets, his former team.

The 24-point outburst for Parsons was his best in 39 games in a Grizzlies uniform. He ended up hitting 9-of-11 from the field, including 6-of-8 from behind the 3-point line, while adding a rebound, an assist and a steal. Despite the big game his fantasy appeal is still rather limited until this type of performance becomes the rule and not the exception.
Oct 29 - 12:10 AM

Chandler Parsons scored three points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

While he says he's healthy, the Grizzlies are going to be extremely careful with him for the foreseeable future. Parsons has big upside, but resting in back-to-backs and not getting 16 minutes per game yet on the year will be extremely annoying for his fantasy owners. You'll probably want to drop him basically everywhere.
