The Dallas Mavericks enter the 2014-2015 season on Tuesday against the San Antonio Spurs following a 4-4 record in the preseason. To compete against the defending NBA champions, the Mavericks need to be at full strength, so there was concern on Sunday when Chandler Parsons missed the end of practice due to a knee injury he sustained in Friday's game.

Dwain Price, who covers the Mavericks for, tweeted the following on Parsons following Sunday's practice.
Parsons is currently listed as day-to-day. He averaged 19.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in six preseason games. Should he be unable to play in the season opener, expect Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu to see the majority of the minutes at small forward.

Parsons, in his fourth NBA season out of Florida, averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and four assists per game last season with the Rockets. In 213 career games, Parsons has averaged 14.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.
