Parsons Struggling to Shake Injury Bug

Parsons has been hit hard by injuries during his two-year stint with the Mavericks, missing 16 games and their playoff run last season.

The Mavericks have been splitting Parsons' time between starting and coming off the bench, and he's averaging 29.5 minutes per game—the lowest total since his rookie season.

The 35-35 Mavs currently have the West's No. 8 seed, though they're only up one game on the Utah Jazz. With Parsons out, forwards David Lee, Justin Anderson and Dirk Nowitzki and possibly even centers Salah Mejri and Zaza Pachulia could see more playing time.
