Chandler Parsons SF HOU 8 Hrs

Chandler Parsons will rest during Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Parsons recently battled minor hip and wrist injuries but he'll have enough time to recover before the start of the playoffs. Guys like Francisco Garcia and Omri Casspi will take on bigger roles with Parsons and James Harden (rest) both out on Wednesday.

Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing 40 minutes for 21 points, seven boards, four assists and two 3-pointers.

He had a couple minor injuries over the weekend and the Rockets decided to hold him out of the lineup. Parsons has been a minutes monster with 37.6 per game this season, which ranks seventh in the NBA. The Rockets still have something to play for on Wednesday, so we'd expect Parsons to be in the lineup for that game in New Orleans.

Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) is a "true" game-time decision to face the Spurs on Monday, according to coach Kevin McHale.

He went through shootaround today and said he'll give it a go. The Rockets have a lot to play for because they're just 0.5 games ahead of Portland and the better record between the two will hold home-court advantage against the other. Omri Casspi would start should Parsons sit out.

Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) will not play in Saturday's home game vs. the Pelicans.

He scored 27 points on Friday and his absence appears to be more of a precaution than a medical necessity. With Francisco Garcia (back) also out of commission, the Rockets will have to rely on guys like Omri Casspi and Jordan Hamilton for production on the wings.

Chandler Parsons scored 27 points with seven boards, seven assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes vs. the Wolves on Friday.

He was in a bit of a slump in March with just a field goal percentage of 41.1 percent for 14.0 points per game, but he's rolling again. In his last five, Parsons averaged 20.0 points, 4.4 boards, 5.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.6 triples on 46.6 percent from the field. He's a middle-class man's version of Kawhi Leonard with how his game translates to fantasy so well.

Parsons continues to carry a heavy offensive load with Dwight Howard (ankle) sidelined. Over the last seven games, Parsons is averaging 18.0 points while getting up 15.2 shots per night. Howard is on the wrong side of a questionable tag for Friday's game against the Thunder.

Outside of the sub-par scoring, Parsons is still putting up nice numbers. He also should play big minutes sans Dwight Howard (ankle) with coach Kevin McHale moving more guys to the frontcourt.

It hasn't just been the dimes for Parsons over his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 4.8 boards, 1.0 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.6 triples. He is one of those guys who has a game that translates to fantasy very well.
