Grizzlies vs. Suns GameThread

Chandler Parsons starts tonight. But is that a good thing?

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The questions about Chandler Parsons continues for the Memphis Grizzlies and their fans.

It is surely not Chandler's fault alone that the Grizzlies are the model for inconsistency. But he isn't helping matters either, and the record of the team recently with and without him shows that to an extent. Memphis is 3-0 without Parsons in the last seven games, with wins over top teams like the Utah Jazz and Toronto Raptors. But they are 0-4 with Chandler in the lineup, suffering tough losses at the hands of Portland and Chicago without Dwyane Wade in the lineup.

His defense leaves a lot to be desired. But the measurement for Parsons cannot be in instant gratification. The team is easing him back to a full workload, hoping he will be healthy for the stretch run come post All-Star break.

Here's to hoping he continues to respond to "the process" tonight in Phoenix.
