Chandler Parsons said that he's accepted a smaller role with the Mavericks, adding, "I’ve just got to be doing a lot of stuff that’s without the ball.
"Rondo is going to have the ball a lot, Monta’s going to have the ball a lot, Dirk’s going to have it in the post a lot," Parsons said. "If [I'm not] the No. 1 or 2 option, I’ve accepted that, but I’m going to stay aggressive." Parsons is actually posting a career-high usage rate of 20.6 percent, but his minutes have fallen below 33 per game and he's struggled to adjust to Rajon Rondo's arrival. Fantasy owners should stay patient, as Parsons should shake off his slump before long. Jan 28 - 6:09 PM

Chandler Parsons quickly recovered from his six-point dud on Sunday, finishing Tuesday's loss with 19 points on 7-of-11 FGs with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and three assists.

He played 32 minutes and was limited down the stretch with the game out of reach, so this is a relatively encouraging performance for Parsons' weary owners. Worries about his scoring are understandable, but the bigger concern might be his supporting stats -- over the Mavs' past five games he's averaging a paltry 1.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks. Unless you want to sell him at a steep discount, patience is warranted.

Chandler Parsons disappeared on Sunday with six points on 2-of-6 shooting, one rebound, three turnovers and no other stats to his credit.

Prior to the Mavs' trade for Rajon Rondo, Parsons was averaging 16.7 points, 2.2 threes, 5.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals, while shooting 44.8 percent from the field. Since the trade he's dipped in points (-3.1), threes (-0.6), boards (-1.1), assists (-0.5) and steals (-0.2). That's reduced him to late-round value, and owners itching to trade him would need to do so at a steep discount. Stay patient.
Jan 25 - 9:23 PM

Chandler Parsons hit 9-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for 22 points, two rebounds, two assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Wolves.

Parsons is heating up again and is averaging 16.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games on 48 percent shooting. Slump busted.
Jan 21 - 11:20 PM

Chandler Parsons scored just 12 points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Clippers on Saturday.

His numbers have fallen off since the Rajon Rondo deal, averaging just 12.5 points, 4.6 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 triples on 44.4 percent from the field. Parsons should be a little bit better than this, but we can probably rule out the idea of him being a top-50 guy in standard leagues.
Jan 10 - 6:39 PM

Chandler Parsons made 2-of-11 from the field with five points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He was really starting to get hot before this stinker and still holds averages of 14.4 points, 4.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.4 triples on 47.3 percent from the field over his last five, including tonight. Parsons has seen his dimes go down since the Rondo deal, so it's fair to say he may lose a touch of fantasy value.
Jan 6 - 12:19 AM

Chandler Parsons scored 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in Friday's win over the Celtics.

Parsons has stopped the bleeding with two great outings in a row but owners are understandably on edge with the Rajon Rondo acquisition. If you're looking to sell high this is a great chance to see what you can get, and the reality of Parsons' situation is probably somewhere between the two extremes in the top 70-90 range.
Jan 2 - 10:57 PM

Chandler Parsons made 10-of-16 shots with five 3-pointers to finish Sunday's game vs. OKC with 26 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and zero turnovers in 35 minutes.

The arrival of Rajon Rondo had sent Parsons into a tailspin over the past four games, as he averaged a mere 10.8 points on 9.3 shot attempts per game, without enough supporting stats to make up for the lost offensive production. Tonight's game was skewed by the absence of Tyson Chandler (back spasms), which led to an unusually small lineup with Parsons at PF, so owners should wait a game or two before declaring him officially 'back' from his mini-slump.

Chandler Parsons continued to be crushed by the Rajon Rondo trade on Friday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting (no threes) with one rebound and two assists.

Parsons thrives with the ball in his hands and that may not be in the cards anymore in Dallas. He's certainly going to improve as the chemistry between he and Rondo improves and they get him more involved. Owners have no choice but to hang on here and not sell-low, but the core areas that Parsons does well in of rebounding and assisting are wounded from a fantasy perspective.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 04:00:00 AM

Chandler Parsons' struggles continued on Tuesday, posting just seven points, eight boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

He really struggled on offense and was just 3-of-9 from the field while turning the ball over a season-high six times. It should be noted that Parsons scored just four points on Monday, and while owners shouldn't do anything too drastic it looks like he is the clear loser in the Rajon Rondo trade. However, we fully expect Parsons to be better than this on most nights, and owners should continue to be patient for the time being.

Chandler Parsons scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 29 minutes on Monday.

Parsons did great in his first game with Rajon Rondo but this one is going to stoke fears that Rondo will steal Parsons' thunder. We can't summarily rule out some friction there but freaking out in Game 2 of the arrangement would be reactionary, and this is definitely a micro-level buy low moment.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 02:08:00 AM

Chandler Parsons double-doubled in a 99-93 win over the Spurs on Saturday with 16 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It's his first double-double of the season, but he was sub-par everywhere else. Parsons shouldn't see his fantasy value change much with Rajon Rondo around, so his fantasy owners should stay the course.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 12:12:00 AM

Chandler Parsons hit 10-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for a season-high 32 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

Parsons' back injury is hopefully behind him and he was playing very well before sitting out on Saturday. Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points and 10 boards in the win, and both players should be in starting lineups whenever they're in uniform for the Mavericks.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 11:25:00 PM

Chandler Parsons returned from his back injury and had 13 points, three rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting.

Like Dirk Nowitzki, CP played just 23 minutes in tonight's blowout win. He should be good to go from here, so make sure he's back in your lineup after he missed Saturday's game.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 10:32:00 PM

Chandler Parsons (back) will start on Tuesday as the Mavericks take on the Knicks, sending Richard Jefferson back to the bench.

Parsons was really getting it going before having to sit out of Saturday's game, so get him active as he has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Knicks. Jefferson can be sent back to the waiver wire in most leagues.
