Chandler Parsons returned from an illness on Tuesday with 10 points, four boards, eight assists and three turnovers in 38 minutes.
He sat out on Saturday and this was his first game action since Feb. 26 due to the light schedule. Parsons might be in one of his worst slumps of the year over his last four, averaging 10.0 points, 5.8 boards, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 triples on 37.2 percent from the field. We're not worried and are expecting a bounce-back game on Wednesday vs. the Magic.

Chandler Parsons (illness) was a full participant at practice on Monday.
After missing Saturday's game, he sounds like he should be ready to go for a big home game against the Heat on Tuesday. Parsons had his illness for no less than four days leading up to Saturday, so there really shouldn't be many lingering effects. Owners in weekly leagues can plug him in for his three-game week. Jordan Hamilton is not a reliable option despite playing well in his three games with the team.

Chandler Parsons (illness) will not play against the Pistons on Saturday.
He went through shootaround this morning, but Parsons left the arena due to his illness. His flu-like symptoms have been bothering him for four days and it's a bit of a surprise he's not able to give it a go tonight. He should be considered probable to start on Tuesday vs. the Heat. Jordan Hamilton will start.

Chandler Parsons has been dealing with flu-like symptoms for the past few days and did not practice on Friday.
The Rockets play the Pistons on Saturday night, so Parsons already dealing with the flu for the past three days means the illness may have almost run its course. It would help if Parsons is available for shootaround on Saturday, but he seems like he'll be a little closer to probable for the home game.

Chandler Parsons' up-and-down February continued on Monday with line of 20 points, three boards, six assists, one steal and one turnover on 9-of-14 shooting.
His last five games have alternated between three games with at least 19-plus points and two single-digit games mixed in there. Over that five-game span, he averaged 16.0 points, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assist, 1.2 steals and 1.6 triples, so his bottom line looks pretty good. Parsons is holding third-round value on the season.

Chandler Parsons bounced back on Wednesday with 19 points during a 112-108 win over the Suns, adding seven boards, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.
He was benched down the stretch of Saturday's game because coach Kevin McHale was playing the matchup game, but Parsons was right back to his ways of logging huge minutes as a key cog in the offense. There was nothing really to worry about to begin with and this line is all you need to know about Parsons' fantastic fantasy value.

Chandler Parsons played just 19 minutes on Saturday, finishing with just seven points, a 3-pointer, two turnovers and nothing else.
There are no reports of an injury and it sounds like Kevin McHale simply decided to ride the hot hand of Jeremy Lin, who had his first triple-double tonight, as well as other guys who were outplaying Parsons on the defensive end. Parsons should be fine and bounce back from this one, but owners will want to keep an eye out for news in case he's not seeing eye to eye with McHale.
