Terrence Jones (leg) remains out indefinitely.

Jones is doing "better" with the nerve issue in his leg, but it was a very serious concern to the point where Jones couldn't even feel his leg and toes. Still without a timetable to return, the Rockets will rely heavily on Donatas Motiejunas at power forward with Kostas Papanikolaou (knee) sidelined as well.

Terrence Jones (leg) is still out for Saturday against the Suns.

He is getting in some work for the Rockets at practice and he seems to be on the comeback trail to some degree. Jones is a great player to stash based on him posting top-20 value before his injury.
Dec 6 - 2:40 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) was spotted getting up some free throws during a recent Rockets’ practice.

The Rockets haven't given much updates on Jones, and there's still no official timetable set for his return, but we thought we'd pass along an update that he's at least going through limited practices. Jones has only played four games so far this season, but he was impressive in those outings, averaging 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 1.0 steal, and 0.8 three-pointers per game. If you cut him now, you will regret it later.

Terrence Jones (leg) is still out for Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

He has no timetable and it might be closer to Christmas before we see Jones on the court. Donatas Motiejunas has been solid while Jones has missed time, but he probably didn't do enough to usurp his playing time. Jones is still worth stashing in most cases.
Dec 1 - 2:55 PM

Terrence Jones has regained feeling in his toes after damaging a nerve in his leg on Nov. 4, but he remains without a timetable.

"It was scary, very scary for me not to have any movement in my leg at first," said Jones, who has nine games and counting. "Now I’m able to move it a little bit ... Hopefully I’ll be back soon. It’s getting better. It’s hard to say, but I just know I’m coming in and it’s improving." He's dealing with nerve inflammation, which is an unpredictable injury, and fantasy owners have no choice but to shelve him and hope for the best.

Terrence Jones (leg) has no timetable for his return, and he said that when he first suffered the injury he "couldn't even feel his leg."

Jones bruised a nerve in his right leg, though the presence of nerve damage wasn't initially disclosed so fantasy owners were flying in the dark. He's missed nine games and counting and may still be out a few more weeks. He was producing at a top-40 level prior to the fluke injury, so in most cases he's still worth holding onto, but it's a decision that shouldn't be made lightly in any format. Donatas Motiejunas and Kostas Papanikolaou continue to absorb his playing time, with Motie filling in as a starter.

Fansided reported on Monday that Rockets play-by-play man Bill Worrell said Terrence Jones (leg) "may be out another month" during their game against the Grizzlies.

We had multiple readers ping us with the same info and we have yet to find the tape to confirm that. Perhaps the Houston media can weigh in on this bit of news, and this also highlights how the TV guys can sometimes come with the scoop. Treat this as a pretty well-placed 'rumor' for now, but Jones' owners may want to start looking at contingency plays right away.
Nov 18 - 1:21 AM

Terrence Jones (leg) is still without a timetable to return.

He has a nerve issue in his leg and he is likely going to be out for at least a week. He was just too good before his injury, so his fantasy owners just have to stick with him. Donatas Motiejunas will get some extra run, but is only an option in deep leagues.
Nov 17 - 7:28 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) will be returning after Patrick Beverley (hamstring) according to coach Kevin McHale, and beat writer Jonathan Feigen thinks that Beverley could return for either Sunday or Monday's game.

Jones' timetable has been murky at best and this sounds like an extended day-to-day situation. Hang onto Jones and give added consideration to Donatas Motiejunas as a short-term pickup if he can show us anything tonight.
Nov 14 - 7:38 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the 76ers.

Jones was already ruled out for the week on Monday, so this news should come as no surprise. Donatas Motiejunas has been starting in his place, but is currently averaging just 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds as a starter. However, guys tend to turn in nice lines vs. the Sixers, so it wouldn't be the worst idea to roll the dice on him in a daily league.
Nov 14 - 11:58 AM

Terrence Jones (leg) did not practice on Monday.

He has a nerve issue in his leg and will not play this week. Jones was on an absolute tear to start the season, but his owners have to bench him this week. Donatas Motiejunas finally had a big game on Saturday despite coming off the bench. He'll be a risky play in a three-game week.
Nov 10 - 4:09 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) is expected to miss one week of action with a contusion to his peroneal nerve.

Ouch. Jones was on fire to start the season, but now the Rockets will have to use Kostas Papanikolaou and Donatas Motiejunas even more. Neither player will be worth using in most cases. Jones' fantasy owners should stick with him.

Terrence Jones (leg) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

The leg bruises in the NBA are really piling up and this one will cause Jones his third game, or so it would seem. If he is indeed out, Kostas Papanikolaou will likely benefit because Donatas Motiejiunas has been awful. Jones owners have no choice but to remain patient.
Nov 7 - 3:54 PM

Terrence Jones (bruised right leg) will miss Thursday's game against the Spurs.

While Jones' injury seems minor, this will be the second consecutive game he's missed due to the contusion. Donatas Motiejunas is in line to get the start for Jones against the Spurs and should make for a good-but-not-great fantasy option Thursday night.
