Chandler Parsons (illness) was not at practice on Thursday.

Coach J.B. Bickerstaff did say that Parsons' absence isn't related to his knee. Parsons made his return to the lineup on Feb. 14 before the break, but the Grizzlies will almost certainly be giving him days off. They start with a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 22 - 3:03 PM

Chandler Parsons played 12 minutes and had five points, one rebound and two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.

Welcome back, Chandler? He hadn't played since Dec. 27 due to lingering knee issues and the Grizzlies have lost seven in a row and have no shot at the playoffs. It makes sense for Parsons to be shut down for risk of further damaging his knees, but for now the Grizzlies are going to try to play him. He has no fantasy value.
Feb 14 - 11:26 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is available to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He's been expected to play for most of the day, so maybe he'll be out there for the first time since December. He was playing well back in November, but Parsons is going to have too many restrictions to be counted on in fantasy.
Feb 14 - 8:00 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is "more probable" than questionable to play on Wednesday, according to coach J.B. Bickerstaff.

"There might possibly be a Chandler Parsons sighting tonight," Bickerstaff added. Even if Parsons does play he's only going to get a handful of minutes. There's no reason to own him anywhere.
Feb 14 - 6:27 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) "plans" to play on Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

He's listed as questionable, but it sounds like he will give it a go after 20 straight games on the shelf. In case it's not obvious, he will have heavy restrictions if he plays. Fantasy owners are better off looking elsewhere for value and we still expect plenty of DNPs for Parsons the rest of the way.
Feb 13 - 7:51 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

Parsons hasn't played in a game since December 27th, but has been making some progress in rehab of late and finally appears close to returning. However, even after he is back in the lineup, he will be on a minutes limit and will very likely be held out of back-to-backs. He can be left on waivers.
Feb 13 - 6:02 PM

Chandler Parsons (right knee soreness) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

He's been ramping up his activity level at practices lately, but he's still not ready to play. He's set to make roughly another $50 million over the next two seasons.
Feb 7 - 2:00 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) was a full participant at Monday's practice.

Parsons said he's feeling good, and that there's a chance he'll be able to get back to the court prior to the All-Star break. That said, he's been irrelevant in fantasy hoops for two years now, and there's no reason to expect that to change.
Feb 5 - 2:50 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

He hasn't played in over a month and there's no guarantee that we will see him again this season. If you need wing help, Dillon Brooks and Wayne Selden are worth a look and could see heavy minutes for the Grizzlies the rest of the way.
Feb 5 - 9:14 AM

Chandler Parsons (knee) will not play on Sunday against the Raptors.

He doesn't have a timetable and the team calls him day-to-day. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit out the rest of the season.
Feb 3 - 4:44 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Pistons.

He remains without a timetable to return and we wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if he didn't play again this season. The Grizzlies probably want that contract back.
Feb 1 - 1:02 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) ruled out Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

Parsons hasn't played since the end of December, and the Grizzlies continue to rule him out a day ahead of each game. He should be left waiver wire in all standard fantasy formats.
Jan 30 - 6:16 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) remains day-to-day.

Unlike JaMychal Green (ankle) and James Ennis (calf), Parsons did not get the "expected to return within the next week" tag in his team update. Parsons is going to be a shutdown candidate and obviously this contract did not work out for Memphis.
Jan 27 - 2:20 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness, right knee soreness), James Ennis III (calf) and Brandan Wright (illness) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. New Orleans.

The oft-injured Parsons hasn't made an appearance in a game since the calendar flipped to 2018. He should be left on the waiver wire.
