Chandler Parsons (knee) uploaded a video of himself getting up some shots on the practice court on Wednesday, and he was not sporting a knee brace.
While not official just yet, it seems likely that Parsons will be ready to go when Dallas opens up their training camp in late-September after undergoing knee surgery in May. He's going to have a much larger role in the offense next season with Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo no longer on the roster, and he'll make for a quality mid-round selection on draft day.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will be attending Team USA's minicamp in Vegas, but he will not be participating.

He will be joining Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and Kevin Love on the sidelines, as he is still recovering from knee surgery. Parsons will have a much larger role in the Dallas offense with Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis out of town, so he should be a solid mid-round pick in fantasy drafts this season. Parsons' knee should be good to go for the start of the season, although Dallas has been quiet on their end regarding his status.

Rick Carlisle said that he is "uncertain" when Chandler Parsons (knee) will be back in action.

Parsons should be ready for the start of the 2015-16 season, but nothing official has come from Dallas' side guaranteeing this. With Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis off the roster, and Dirk Nowitzki another year older, Parsons is primed for a much larger role with the Mavs next season. Assuming there are no setbacks in his recovery from knee surgery, Parsons should make for a fine mid-round selection on draft day.
Jul 14 - 6:37 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) was seen doing some light shooting work with head coach Rick Carlisle on Sunday.

There haven't been a lot updates on the status of Parsons' knee, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. The expectation is that he will be ready in time for training camp, so we will be tracking his progress closely. Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis have moved on from Dallas, so Parsons will see a larger role in the offense next season and his fantasy value is trending up.

Chandler Parsons said that the reason DeAndre Jordan chose to remain in Los Angeles with the Clippers was because "he wasn't ready to be a franchise player."

"Maybe he got nerves about being a franchise player and having the pressure of leading a team," said Parson when asked why he thought Jordan may have changed his mind. "He’s very comfortable in L.A. He can play behind Chris Paul, play behind Blake Griffin. That’s what I thought he didn’t want... This decision was just way too big for him and he wasn’t ready to be a franchise player." The boos will be deafening when Jordan enters American Airlines Center for the first time next season, still donning a Clippers jersey.

Chandler Parsons took a shot at DeAndre Jordan on Twitter after Jordan decided to sign with the Clippers.

He didn't use an emoji to do so, but Parsons took a shot at Jordan after the latter reversed course on his decision to sign with Dallas. "I thought I had a good pump fake," Parsons tweeted. Parsons played a large part in recruiting Jordan to the Mavericks and can't be happy that he wasn't able to seal the deal. Mark Cuban has yet to speak on the situation, but we're guessing his comments will make Parsons' look like a compliment.
Jul 9 - 9:43 AM

Chandler Parsons said he's working with Mark Cuban to be announced as "starting small forward/general manager" during starting lineups.

You have to wonder how general manager Donnie Nelson feels about this. Kidding aside, Parsons does get some credit for his job in free agency pitches. He also said it was easier to recruit DeAndre Jordan than Dwight Howard. "I just knew I was gonna have to out-recruit Dirk," Parsons said. As for the basketball side of things, Parsons could be in for some major work next year, assuming his knee is 100 percent.
Jul 6 - 6:27 PM

Chandler Parsons said that he is ready to make pitches to free agents this summer with Mark Cuban.

Parson's recruiting efforts in the past have been well documented, as he was one of the main reasons why Dwight Howard landed in Houston. Parsons has his work cut out for him this summer, as Dallas will have plenty of competition in their efforts to try and sign big names such as LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan. On a side note, Parsons should have a much larger role in the offense next season without Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo, so he should be a solid target in the middle rounds on fantasy drafts.
Jun 27 - 11:27 AM

Chandler Parsons said that he is ready to embrace a larger role with the Mavericks next season.

"That's the reason I came here -- for a bigger role and to be a star," said Parsons. "I'm more than ready for that." Last year it was difficult for Parsons to become a focal point of the offense with Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo dominating the ball, but it sounds like Ellis will not be back with the team and Rondo is definitely out. That will allow Parsons a lot more opportunity to run the offense, so he should see a boost in value and should make for a solid mid-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.
Jun 26 - 2:23 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is on pace to be ready for the season.

The details of his surgery are not known but it sounds like this is more than just a scope. Parsons is set for a big role in 2015-16, especially with the news of Monta Ellis opting out. Fantasy owners will want to target him in the early middle rounds.
Jun 24 - 9:14 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said Chandler Parsons' responsibilities will grow going forward.

"He’s not only a shooter and a scorer, but he’s a playmaker," Carlisle added. "He’s a defender and a rebounder. He’s one of our best all-around players. As the season went on, his responsibilities grew." The coach added that he'll still be able to redefine his role even if he's not 100 percent. Parsons could easily be a top-40 player sans Rajon Rondo next season.
Jun 12 - 4:18 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is off his crutches and was walking around in New York City on Wednesday.

Parsons hasn't completely committed to being ready for training camp, but this bodes well for his chances. He was a mid-round asset in fantasy leagues, but he did have better fantasy numbers sans Rajon Rondo. For now, he's shaping up to be a fifth- or sixth-round target.
Jun 3 - 8:12 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) would not commit to being ready for next year's training camp during a recent interview.

"I hope so," Parsons said regarding being ready for training camp. "Something like this, you never know. I think it’s very beneficial that I’m not going to be playing any games and practicing or anything like that. I’ll just be working out [with the Mavericks’ athletic training staff]. I think so." Parsons would also not say whether he had arthroscopic or microfracture surgery, and the recovery timetables on those two procedures are significantly different. While arthroscopic surgery typically takes around 4-6 weeks to get back to basketball activities, microfracture surgery involves an 8-month recovery process. If he did indeed undergo microfracture surgery, he'll lose some value heading into next year's drafts.
May 22 - 9:19 AM

Chandler Parsons (knee) wouldn't reveal whether his surgery was of the micro fracture variety.

When asked about the surgery, Parsons said, ""I don't think they want me to answer whether it was or not." While still on crutches, Parsons is expected to make a full recovery for the start of training camp and should be ready for a productive season as the Mavericks try to take more weight off of Dirk Nowitzki's shoulders. As long as his recovery goes according to plan, fantasy owners should be looking to take Parsons in the middle rounds of 2015-16 fantasy drafts.
May 21 - 1:24 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) revealed parts of the recruiting pitch that he will use to attempt to lure fellow players to the Mavericks this offseason.

Parsons had previously said he wants to help attract free agents to Dallas and is "shifting into GM mode." Following arthroscopic knee surgery, Parsons revealed parts of his pitch. "We have a great organization," he said. "We have high expectations. We have the best owner in sports. We’re definitely moving in the right direction, and we have a lot of pieces that would fit well with the free agents out there right now. And we have a great coach, so I think we’re moving in the right direction. We’re a championship-caliber team." Whether Parsons is successful in his recruiting remains to be seen, but he'll have plenty of targets this summer, including LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol, and potentially Kevin Love.
