Terrence Jones is inactive against the Warriors on Saturday.
Sam Dekker is the other inactive. Last year, Jones played 23 minutes per game against the Warriors in the postseason, but this year it looks like he won't be a factor in this series whatsoever. J.B. Bickerstaff just isn't a Jones fan. Apr 16 - 2:20 PM

Terrence Jones was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Jones recently dealt with an illness, but he's healthy now so we're taking him off the injury report. It's been a disastrous season for the fourth-year player, who could be a restricted free agent if Houston extends a $3.5 million qualifying offer this summer.
Mar 17 - 12:36 AM

Terrence Jones is over his illness, but he will be inactive for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

This is rock bottom for Jones and he probably won't be in the rotation for a while. He's been a bust this season and his price tag in restricted free agency this summer is dropping by the day. J.B. Bickerstaff hasn't been Jonesin' for Terrence all season.
Mar 14 - 7:42 PM

Terrence Jones (illness) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Jones is in the doghouse in Houston and wouldn't be in the rotation even if he was healthy. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 12 - 1:13 PM

Terrence Jones is inactive vs. 76ers on Wednesday.

He could be sick or he could be out of the rotation. Michael Beasley should be the second power forward in the rotation tonight. Things haven't been super cool for Jones this season.
Mar 9 - 6:43 PM

Terrence Jones (illness) did not play vs. Toronto on Sunday.

Jones is barely playing even when healthy these days, with Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Montrezl Harrell all vying for minutes, so it's not a surprise to see him out of commission. His next chance to return comes Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Mar 6 - 9:59 PM

Terrence Jones (illness) will not play on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

He picked up a DNP-CD on Wednesday and the Rockets just signed Michael Beasley, so Jones may not be able to crack the rotation for a while. He's been a major bust all season and belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 4 - 12:20 PM

Terrence Jones picked up a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Donatas Motiejunas is healthy and starting at PF, Josh Smith's arrival has created a log-jam, and Clint Capela returned tonight after a two-game absence. There's simply no place in the rotation right now for Jones, whose season has gone from bad to worse in a hurry.
Mar 2 - 11:42 PM

Terrence Jones (concussion) returned from a five-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Jazz and played just 12 minutes, scoring three points with one board and one steal.

Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Jones will be worked into the rotation as a backup power forward, but his minutes might be low on a lot of nights because the Rockets play a ton of small ball. Jones has upside, but he's buried on the bench and isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 24 - 12:05 AM

Terrence Jones (concussion) will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

He cleared the concussion protocol and coach J.B. Bickerstaff said on Monday that Jones would be worked into the rotation as a backup power forward. Jones' value in Houston is very low right now as he has been an inconsistent part of the rotation, so he's only on the radar in deeper leagues based on upside alone.
Feb 23 - 8:05 PM

Terrence Jones will be worked in as a backup power forward after returning from his concussion.

"Obviously, he has to knock a little rust off," interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. "Physically, he was good. He's in good health, good shape. No pain. Nothing hanging over him. The good thing about him and Josh [Smith], they give you versatility." There is no current reason to stash Jones—a firm candidate for bust of the season—on fantasy rosters.
Feb 22 - 10:28 AM

Terrence Jones (concussion) returned to practice on Sunday.

It's the first time he's been back at practice since his February 3 car crash, and this is a positive sign regarding his availability for Tuesday's game in Utah. However, Jones is the odd man out in Houston's loaded frontcourt, and with how painfully inconsistent he's been this season, there's little incentive to own him in any setting.
Feb 21 - 2:06 PM

Terrence Jones (concussion) will not play on Friday against the Suns.

He's been in the protocol since Feb. 2 and has no target date. With Jones not being moved, he isn't really worth stashing anymore. Montrezl Harrell will be in the rotation on Friday, but can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 18 - 8:17 PM

Terrence Jones (concussion) is not with the Rockets in Phoenix, leaving him very questionable for Friday's game.

Owners should consider Jones closer to 'doubtful' unless some optimistic reports surface in the next 24 hours -- we've yet to hear that he's cleared the league's stringent concussion protocol. The Rockets are also reportedly "willing" to trade Jones, so his next game could be played in a new uniform. Stay tuned.
Feb 17 - 7:33 PM

The Rockets are reportedly willing to move Terrence Jones.

It makes sense as Jones has fallen out of the rotation in Houston with the addition of Josh Smith. It's unclear exactly where Jones would land, but his value would see a boost away from J.B. Bickerstaff. He's worth stashing to see if Houston makes a move at the deadline.
