Terrence Jones started Game 4 on Sunday but he played only 18 minutes to finish with 13 points, six rebounds and one steal.
With Donatas Motiejunas out for the playoffs following back surgery, we've been expecting bigger postseason numbers from T-Jones as the Rockets' starting power forward. He was again overshadowed by Josh Smith, however, and through four games he's averaging only 12.3 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He also has zero assists or blocks in his past three games and owners should at least temper expectations while Houston is matched up with the Mavericks. Apr 27 - 12:13 AM

Terrence Jones left Tuesday's game in the third quarter after being elbowed in the face by Dwight Howard, but he quickly returned to action.

Jones' body language wasn't encouraging but the team said that he only suffered a bloody nose, and he was only limited in the second half due to Josh Smith's proficiency. He should be fine for Game 3.
Apr 21 - 11:25 PM

Terrence Jones made 6-of-15 from the field and 7-of-11 from the line for 19 points against the Mavs on Saturday with nine rebounds, six assists and one steal.

The shot total is almost shocking and this was the first time in Jones' career he's had more than 10 shots from the field and from the line. Jones saw a little more playing time than expected because of Dwight Howard getting into foul trouble, but he's still a good bet to play over 30 minutes per game in this series. Jones' season flew a little under the radar due to injuries, so he'll be a difference maker if he can stay on the court.
Apr 19 - 12:35 AM

Terrence Jones double-doubled on Monday against the Hornets with 10 points, 11 boards, two assists and four blocks in 31 minutes.

He picked up some minutes at center tonight with Dwight Howard getting some rest. Jones' numbers have dipped a bit in his last five, averaging 7.6 points, 4.8 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.2 treys. He'll look to finish strong on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 12:00 AM

Terrence Jones was quiet in 25 minutes vs. the Pelicans, scoring six points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

A matchup with Anthony Davis is enough to slow down any power forward, and Jones faces an additional challenge with teammate Dwight Howard vacuuming up rebounds and dominating the paint. Dwight will rest on Monday, however, making Jones an excellent option vs. the Hornets' injury-ravaged frontcourt.
Apr 12 - 9:45 PM

Terrence Jones scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and one block in the Rockets' 104-103 loss to the Spurs on Friday.

Jones' conditioning has been a question mark since returning and there have also been reports of aggravation to his rib injury. This game goes a long way toward getting him back into lineups, however, because his immense upside is very hard to pass up.
Apr 11 - 2:04 AM

Terrence Jones was hit in his ribs on Wednesday night and it bothered him the rest of the night.

Perhaps this explains why he only played 17 minutes and didn't look like his usual self on Wednesday. Jones will likely get minutes in the 22-26 range tonight, which is more than enough to start him in standard leagues.
Apr 10 - 6:42 PM

Terrence Jones played just 17 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with two points and one turnover.

It was an awful game from Jones with no other stats, making just 1-of-3 from the field. He just didn't have it tonight and he should be better on Friday against these same Spurs.
Apr 9 - 12:41 AM

Terrence Jones was nearly invisible during Sunday's win over OKC, scoring just six points on 2-of-5 shooting (2-of-4 from the line), with three rebounds, two assists and three blocks through 24 minutes of action.

After exploding for 16 points with seven blocks in his return to action on April 1, Jones has struggled to do much over the past two games, averaging a meager 6.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. His minutes have been in the low 20s, and he hasn't had a lot of shot attempts (5.5 FGAs per game over the last two), but he just has way too much upside to consider dropping him. Look for him to have a bounce-back performance against the Spurs on Wednesday.
Apr 5 - 5:14 PM

Terrence Jones played 22 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday with seven points, five rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.

It was nowhere near close to his 16-point, seven-block game from Wednesday. Jones was in a little bit of foul trouble and he should have more minutes going his way on Sunday. Additionally, Jones was not cleared for flying on a plane due to his lung, so he had to take a bus to Dallas. The Rockets are in Oklahoma City on Sunday and in San Antonio on Wednesday, so travel shouldn't be a problem for him. He should be owned in all leagues.
Apr 2 - 11:56 PM

Terrence Jones will play his regular minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He'll be in the starting lineup and McHale said Jones is feeling good in his first game back. Jones blocked a career-high seven shots against the Kings on Wednesday and is already a must-own player in all leagues, especially with Donatas Motiejunas (back) out of the lineup.
Apr 2 - 7:10 PM

Terrence Jones (ribs) is probable for Thursday's game against the Mavericks.

Jones had a huge game against the Kings on Wednesday, but Dwight Howard (knee) is likely to play on Thursday so Jones' numbers may not approach his Wednesday line of 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, and seven blocks. As long as fantasy owners aren't expecting seven blocks on TJ, he's a must-start whenever he's healthy.
Apr 2 - 1:38 PM

Terrence Jones returned from a rib injury on Wednesday and went off for 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and seven blocks on 6-of-10 shooting in 32 minutes.

This was quite a return for TJ and he was helped by the fact Dwight Howard was given the night off to rest as he comes back from his knee injury. Howard is expected to play on Thursday against the Mavericks, but it also sounds like Jones is also going to play, according to Kevin McHale. Get him back in your lineup.
Apr 1 - 11:52 PM

Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) will play against the Kings on Wednesday and will have a minutes restriction.

This is great to see after a very scary injury put him in the hospital last month. The Rockets have yet to decide on Dwight Howard, but Jones should still be able to get 16-24 minutes tonight in his first game back. The Rockets have a back-to-back, so Jones should be owned in all leagues with two games in the next two days.
Apr 1 - 6:20 PM

Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) will play vs. the Kings on Wednesday, though he isn't sure how many minutes.

Jones made it through shootaround just fine and was in good spirits, so it looks like he is in the clear. Donatas Motiejunas (back) is on the sidelines and Dwight Howard (knee) is still on a minutes restriction and won't play in back-to-back sets, so there is a good chance that Jones could get some serious action down the stretch. If he is cleared to play, owners in most leagues will probably want to keep him on their bench until we know how many minutes he will get. Still, Jones has loads of upside and is worth a flier in most leagues.
