Parsons will start Saturday against the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons makes his first start of the season Saturday night as James Ennis will head to the bench. Parsons has averaged just over 19 minutes per contest this season with the Grizzlies, but will likely see increased minutes as a starter.

Parsons will sit out Sunday's game against the Lakers for rest, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Grizzlies heading into the second night of a back-to-back set, Parsons will get the night off for rest, which has been customary so far this season. Look for him to return for Tuesday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, though in the meantime, look for James Ennis, Tyreke Evans and Dillon Brooks to pick up a few extra minutes.

Parsons provided 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 19 minutes during Saturday's 103-89 win over the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons equaled his scoring total from his first four appearances combined, and he saw his season high in minutes too. Not since Parsons was a Maverick (2015-16) had he posted 20-plus points in a contest, and he did it against his former Rockets team. It was an encouraging performance for a player who missed 48 games and averaged a career-low 19.9 minutes per night in 2016-17.

Parsons (rest) is not listed on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons was rested for the front end of a back-to-back set with the Mavericks on Wednesday, but it looks like he'll be activated for Thursday's matchup. Parsons has been on a stretch minutes limit to start the season, and he's expected to remain on that for the near future. As a result, he'll continue to play a minor role off the bench for Memphis.

Parsons will sit out Wednesday's game against the Mavericks for rest.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons has been on a strict 15-minute workload over the first three games of the season and the Grizzlies will only further monitor his workload on Wednesday, as he'll sit out the game entirely for rest on the first night of a back-to-back set. This will likely happen on-and-off this season and it's unclear when Parsons will be cleared of a restriction when active, so he remains a guy to avoid in most fantasy leagues. With Parsons resting and JaMychal Green (foot/ankle) still out, Jarell Martin will likely get all minutes he can handle at power forward, while Brandan Wright could shift over and see extra time there as well.

Parsons will start the 2017-18 campaign coming off the bench, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons is slated to make $23.1 million during the upcoming campaign, and while that's starter's money, coach David Fizdale will opt to bring his oft-injured forward off the bench at both forward spots. He was limited to just 34 games last season due to a left knee injury and has dealt with multiple other injuries throughout his career, so this very well could be a way for the team to limit his workload throughout the season. In moving to the bench, Parsons' value takes yet another hit, though he was already an extremely risky option due to his injury history. It may be wise to avoid him until a defined role is evident.

Parsons will not play during Friday's preseason finale against the Pelicans for personal reasons.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons hasn't been particularly effective of late, failing to score across his last 22 preseason minutes. Regardless, his absence Friday will seemingly open up time for the likes of James Ennis, Tyreke Evans and deeper reserve options.

Parsons was scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) over 12 minutes in Wednesday's 101-89 preseason loss to the Rockets and added two rebounds and one assist.

EDGE Analysis

Parsons has come up empty in the scoring column in his last two exhibitions, but he's only played a combined 22 minutes over that stretch. The seven-year veteran is being brought along slowly during the exhibition slate after injuries decimated his 2016-17 campaign, and is likely to start the regular season on some type of minutes limit, especially considering the Grizzlies boast a capable backup small forward option in James Ennis.

Parsons tallied five points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 18 minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 victory over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

While Parsons wasn't on the floor long, the main concern for the Grizzlies will be keeping him healthy heading into the regular season, as he played just 34 games last year while dealing with knee problems. He projects to be the team's No. 3 option on offense heading into 2017-18 and could see time at small forward and power forward.

Parsons scored six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 18 minutes during Monday's preseason win over the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

After playing only 34 games in his first season with the Grizzlies in 2016-17, Parsons is entering camp healthy and was one of only two projected Opening Night starters to be in the starting five Monday, an encouraging sign. If he can stay 100 percent, or close to it, the 28-year-old should be able to bolster Memphis' scoring from beyond the arc.
