Chandler Parsons will be rested during Wednesday's road game vs. the Spurs.
It's the second half of a back-to-back set and the Mavs' training staff still isn't comfortable with him playing on consecutive nights. His minute-limit has crept into the mid-20s recently, but Parsons' occasional DNPs continue to drag down his value. The Mavs' next back-to-back set comes Dec. 6 and 7. Nov 25 - 7:22 PM

Chandler Parsons played a season-high 25 minutes on Tuesday, but hit just 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for six points, five rebounds and two assists in a loss to the Grizzlies.

The good news is that his minutes are finally up in the 25-minute range, meaning he is hopefully about ready to start playing better as he recovers from knee surgery. He's been pretty bad thus far, but now might be the time to target him in a buy-low deal.
Nov 24 - 10:42 PM

Chandler Parsons logged a season-high 24 minutes during Sunday's loss in OKC, scoring 12 points with two triples, three rebounds and zero assists, steals, blocks or turnovers.

His minute-limit is slowly creeping toward the mid-20s as the Mavs are wisely playing it safe with Parsons, who is owed $16 million next season. He's likely to miss one of the Mavs' games on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, so plan accordingly.
Nov 22 - 9:49 PM

Chandler Parsons' minutes will continue to gradually go up.

Parsons' minutes limit increased to 23 on Wednesday against the Celtics, so he should see a similar workload tonight. Head coach Rick Carlisle wouldn't lay out an exact plan, but hopefully Parsons will be able to play over 30 minutes in December. He isn't a must-start player yet, but that could change very soon and his owners just need to stay patient.
Nov 22 - 6:29 PM

Chandler Parsons played 21 minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday, contributing eight points, two rebounds and two blocks in an impressive road win.

This matched his season-high for playing time and the Mavs are being extra cautious, having recently nudged his limit up to 23 minutes per game. Parsons uncharacteristically missed all four of his FT attempts tonight and fantasy owners can only sit back and stay patient -- trading him now would yield minimal value.
Nov 18 - 11:03 PM

Chandler Parsons said that his minutes limit has increased to 23 minutes.

Parsons is slowly but surely picking up the pace in Dallas, and he put up a season-high 20 points in his last game. The Mavericks have been better than expected this season, owning a 7-4 record, which is a very positive sign for Parsons as he's far less likely to be shut down if the Mavs are competing for a playoff spot. Parsons is loaded with upside, so now would be a good time to get in some buy-low offers while he's still on a minutes limit.
Nov 18 - 12:10 PM

Chandler Parsons scored a season-high 20 points in 21 minutes against the 76ers on Monday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was 8-of-11 from the field and scored his first nine points in the first 5:29. Parsons is starting to get more minutes and he should be in the mid-20s in the next week or so. His patient owners should start seeing some nice dividends and can confidently start plugging him into their lineups very soon.
Nov 16 - 10:18 PM

Chandler Parsons was elbowed in the face by Nerlens Noel and was forced to go to the locker room, but he has since returned and started the second half.

It was unintentional, but Noel got him pretty good and there was some blood. Parsons appears to be fine and is having his best game of the season. We'll have an update after the game.
Nov 16 - 7:57 PM

Chandler Parsons is aiming to play a season-high 20 minutes vs. the Sixers on Monday.

Additionally, Parsons reported no swelling and no pain in his surgically-repaired knee. This would be a good matchup for Parsons to test himself in order to get going, but he's been pretty underwhelming so far. Averaging a meager 5.2 points on 38.2 percent shooting, Parsons is simply a stash candidate right now for those who believe in his long-term outlook.
Nov 16 - 11:49 AM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Rockets as expected.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, so this is basically just a reminder for his owners to get him out of lineups. Raymond Felton will likely slide into the first unit, but he is only worth a look in deeper leagues. As for Parsons, he is still restricted to playing minutes in the teens and it isn't clear how soon that will change.
Nov 14 - 11:44 AM

Chandler Parsons returned to action on Friday with nine points, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Lakers.

He is not going to play on Saturday night and will have a minutes cap for the next month or so. His fantasy owners just have to keep stashing him and hope to get rewarded in February.
Nov 14 - 3:01 AM

Chandler Parsons will play with a minutes limit on Friday night.

He is back on the front end of a back-to-back tonight, so he is likely out tomorrow against the Rockets. Raymond Felton will move back to the bench. Parsons is not a strong play right now, but he's worth stashing in all leagues.
Nov 13 - 7:21 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

This is all part of Parsons maintenance plan as he recovers from offseason knee surgery, and it'll likely be Raymond Felton sliding into the starting five for tonight's matchup with the Clippers. However, Felton is far from an appealing option with averages of just 9.7 points, 3.7 assists and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter.
Nov 11 - 7:01 PM

Chandler Parsons played 17 minutes and hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points, six rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans, who got their first win of the season tonight.

As long as Parsons is on his minutes limit, Parsons is not startable in any format. Hopefully his knee starts feeling better by Christmas, but until he's getting 25 minutes a night, he's going to be a pain in the neck to hold (although he's still worth it).
Nov 10 - 11:43 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) will still be on a 15-minute limit moving forward.

The Mavericks are obviously being cautious here and it's still unclear when his minutes will go up. He is still a must-own player if you don't mind keeping him on your bench, but he is not worth starting in almost any league while playing such limited minutes.
