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.

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.
May 5 - 10:33 AM

Chandler Parsons (knee) had arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday morning.

This is good news that he didn't have microfracture surgery. The Mavs did not give a timetable for his recovery, but generally knee scopes require 4-6 weeks off. That means he should be ready to roll in a couple months. Parsons should have more fantasy value with Rajon Rondo out of town, so keep an eye on him in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Chandler Parsons (knee) had surgery on Friday morning.

We don't know what the details are just yet, but feel free to check out the image in the link below. "Thank you for all the support throughout this process," Parsons said on his Instagram page. "I will be back stronger and better than ever!!" It seems like it could be microfracture surgery and there should be an official update soon. If that's the case, he could miss the start of the 2015-16 season.
May 1 - 3:20 PM

Chandler Parsons said he's ready to take on a recruiting role to help attract free agents to Dallas.

While Parsons is likely to have knee surgery over the offseason, he's not letting that stop him from heading up the Mavs' recruiting efforts. "I’m officially shifting into GM mode," he said. "I have great relationships with a lot of guys that are out there. I have a great relationship with a lot of guys that are currently on our team, so as a guy that will be here for a while and as one of the key guys going forward I will definitely be talking to management. Anything I can do to help I’ll obviously do." We'll keep an eye on Parsons' recruitment and recovery efforts over the summer, but it sounds like he has a busy few months ahead of him.

Chandler Parsons (knee) said that he expects to have a larger role next season.

Parsons had a decent year with the Mavericks, posting averages of 15.7 points, 4.9 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.0 3-pointers per game. However, his knee is still going to require surgery in the offseason, and if he missed the start of training camp or more it could really slow him down to start the season. Doctors won't know exactly what's wrong with his knee until he has the procedure, so we would expect a firm timetable after the surgery. As always, we will continue to track his progress closely. Parsons will also heavily recruit free agents to Dallas this summer, so it will be interesting to see if he can bring anyone notable in.

Chandler Parsons (knee) has delayed surgery until the Mavs' playoff run is over.

Parsons said he’s delaying surgery on his right knee and added that he and doctors won’t know exactly what’s wrong with the knee until he has the procedure. The 26-year-old has been getting multiple medical opinions on his injured knee and one of the options is microfracture surgery. "There’s a lot of opinions and a lot of different things out there, but really the doctors won’t know anything until they open me up," Parsons said. "So I’m not going to say something is going to happen or not happen and then be wrong. I really won’t know until they open me up." If microfracture surgery is required, Parsons would potentially be looking at an 8-month recovery period, and he'd be in danger of missing the start of the 2015-16 season. We’ll be watching this story very closely over the offseason.

Chandler Parsons (knee) could need microfracture on his right knee.

It's only a possibility for now and he is getting multiple opinions on his ailing knee. If he is going to have that surgery, he'll be out for the start of training camp and possibly the start of the season. Parsons was a top-60 player in fantasy last season, but this surgery would move him closer to 100 on fantasy draft boards.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is expected to get a third opinion this week.

Parsons is traveling to Chicago, and it's not a good sign that he needs a third opinion in order to determine what's exactly wrong with his knee. "Trying to stay positive with it," Parsons said. There is a serious chance that Parsons will not be ready for training camp depending on the severity of the surgery he has to undergo.

Chandler Parsons (knee) was seen going through a light workout at practice on Saturday, though he remains out for the playoffs.

While there is no tear or structural damage to his right knee, he will have to undergo surgery and a timetable for his return will not be set until after the procedure. We will continue to track his progress closely, but it's encouraging to see him move around at practice. Richard Jefferson (calf) will likely continue to start if he is able to play, but Al-Farouq Aminu will likely be the primary beneficiary.

Chandler Parsons said that there is no tear or structural damage to his right knee, but it's not getting any better, and he will require surgery.

Parsons added that if the Mavs' first-round matchup hadn't been against the Rockets, he probably wouldn't have played at all. He's going to meet with a doctor in Chicago to determine exactly what surgery he will need to have, after which a surgery date and timetable for recovery will be set. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will see extended minutes in Dallas' rotations.
Apr 23 - 2:48 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) will visit with a doctor in Chicago before determining specifics about his upcoming surgery.

Parsons will miss the rest of the playoffs and will undergo surgery on his right knee once he finishes consulting with doctors. We'll update Parson's timetable once we know more, but the procedure isn't expected to be major so he'll likely be ready in time for training camp. Richard Jefferson will continue to start at small forward with Parsons out, while Al-Farouq Aminu will also pick up some extra minutes.

Chandler Parsons (knee) will miss the rest of the playoffs.

He is exploring surgery options to his right knee. Parsons aggravated his knee injury in Game 1 and tried to play through it. Despite little swelling, the Mavs will just keep him out until October. As it stands right now, there's no ligament damage and he'd probably be looking at a knee scope procedure. With Parsons out, Richard Jefferson will start at small forward with Al-Farouq Aminu getting more minutes.
Apr 22 - 4:33 PM

According to Yahoo Sports, it is "impossible" for Chandler Parsons to return from his knee injury in the first round of the playoffs.

The Mavericks have already lost the first two games to Houston, so this news doesn't bode well for their chances of making a comeback. Parsons is expected to be reevaluated on Wednesday, so we should be able to provide another update shortly. If this report is true, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will have to step into larger roles for the rest of the series.
