Chandler Parsons shared his thoughts on his disappointing 2017-18 season.
"I had moments this year where I felt good and felt like myself, and I had moments where the soreness and stiffness were just too much," Parsons said. "I want to play. I want to be healthy. And I’m doing everything in my power to get there." He averaged 7.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 19.2 minutes, playing in a total of 35 games. Needless to say, the Grizzlies should be relieved that he's halfway through his four-year, $94 million contract. Apr 19 - 11:27 AM

Chandler Parsons (left knee soreness, right knee soreness) will not play again this season to undergo orthobiologic knee injections this week.

That'll be that for Parsons, who finishes with just 36 games played at 19.2 minutes per contest. What may be even worse is that he couldn't even get to 40 games despite not having a somewhat serious injury with the main reasons being soreness in his knees or rest. He'll be turning 30 just after next season starts and needless to say this contract was a disaster for the Grizzlies.
Apr 6 - 12:15 PM

Chandler Parsons (left knee soreness, right knee soreness) will not play on Friday against the Kings.

Left and right knee soreness is probably not good for a guy that hasn't played much all season.
Apr 5 - 6:05 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

When the Grizzlies signed Parsons to a $94 million contract, they weren't expecting him to lead the league in DNP-knee soreness.
Apr 3 - 6:37 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play on Sunday against the Blazers.

He probably shouldn't have got into Twitter fights with NBA stars last year. Maybe C.J. McCollum has something for him as he watches.
Mar 31 - 8:02 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

Parsons has missed multiple games this month (shocking, right?), and is averaging less than 15 minutes per contest in those games he's appeared in. Leave him on waivers.
Mar 30 - 12:40 PM

Chandler Parsons scored 15 points in just 19 minutes of action on Wednesday, going 6-of-12 from the field with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

"Of course, I want to do more and play more, but I’m just trying to make the most of the things I can control," Parsons said before the game. He certainly maximized his minutes tonight, and showed flashes of his pre-injury self, but his restrictions are too extreme to bother with him in fantasy leagues.
Mar 28 - 11:19 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) returned from a two-game absence on Monday vs. the Wolves, scoring three points with five assists, three boards and one triple in 18 minutes.

This is the first time he's reached 18 minutes in a game since Dec. 27. That's just sad. Expect more DNPs down the stretch for one of the most injury-prone and well rested players in the NBA.
Mar 26 - 10:27 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is available to play on Monday vs. the Wolves.

He has six DNPs in March and is only averaging 13.9 minutes per game. If he plays tonight he might need about three months to recover.
Mar 26 - 6:40 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

Parsons' status won't have an impact on fantasy lineups, but if he's out there should be a handful of extra minutes for Jarell Martin.
Mar 25 - 6:15 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) will not play on Saturday.

He's getting plenty of rest after a day off on Thursday, too.
Mar 24 - 6:35 PM

Chandler Parsons will rest on Thursday vs. the Hornets.

He played a whopping 17 minutes on Wednesday and will sit out on the second night of a back-to-back. Fantasy owners can have a good laugh about this because he's been waiver-wire fodder for months. Jarell Martin, Ben McLemore and Wayne Selden are all candidates to pick up a few extra minutes.
Mar 22 - 1:13 PM

Barring an injury-related setback, Chandler Parsons believes he will find his form next season.

"Obviously, there were high expectations coming here and I haven’t come close to meeting them," Parsons said. "But in my head, it’s all health. I know if I’m healthy, I can play with the best of them. And I’ve shown flashes of that this year when I’ve played minutes." We're not sure what "flashes" he's talking about because he's played about 15 seconds all year, and Parsons is going to be on a lot of "never again" lists heading into the 2018-19 season.
Mar 22 - 11:08 AM

Chandler Parsons had two points and two rebounds in 17 minutes on Wednesday.

Parsons had a decent game on Monday and is hoping to build off it during the final weeks of the season. "I want to be able to come in and give some energy, knock down shots and make plays ... in the short minutes they've given me," he said. He's capped at around 15-20 minutes per game, which decimates any potential fantasy upside.
Mar 21 - 10:46 PM

Chandler Parsons doesn't think he's washed up.

"I do – I don’t know if everyone else does," Parsons said of looking forward to again hitting the reset button. "Obviously, there were high expectations coming here and I haven’t come close to meeting them. But in my head, it’s all health. I know if I’m healthy, I can play with the best of them." Since signing his four-year, $94 million deal back in 2016, Parsons has appeared in just 77 of a possible 152 regular-season games due to knee issues. We're not expecting a sudden bounce-back next year.
