Chandler Parsons (back) out vs. Warriors

DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons is inactive for Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors because of his sore lower back.

Parsons' back has been bothering him since he took a hard fall in Tuesday's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. It tightened up on him Wednesday night, but Parsons still managed to score 20 points in the win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

The hope is that Parsons, who was doing conditioning and core strength work before Saturday's game, will be able to play Tuesday night against the New York Knicks.

Point guard Jameer Nelson is active after missing Wednesday's win because of a jammed right shoulder.
