Terrence Jones had another solid outing on Sunday, scoring 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting (6-of-9 from the line), with seven rebounds and one 3-pointer through 44 minutes of action.
This is the first game since the All-Star break that Jones did not record a block, which tells you just how good he's been. He's averaging 15.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, and a whopping 3.0 blocks per game since the break, and he shows no signs of slowing down. It'll be interesting to see how/if his minutes are affected in the rotation upon Dwight Howard's return, but for now, owners can simply enjoy the ride. Mar 1 - 7:16 PM

Terrence Jones scored a season-high 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting (no threes) with 12 rebounds and one block in the Rockets' 102-98 win over the Nets on Friday.

Jones hit all four of his free throws and he's been a stud since the All Star break with top 25-35 value in his last four contests. Trevor Ariza also had a great night with 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including five threes), five boards and two steals in the win.
Feb 28 - 3:22 AM

Terrence Jones continued his stellar post-break run on Wednesday with 14 points, eight rebounds, one assist and five blocks in 32 minutes against the Clippers.

Jones is returning fourth round value since the start of the second half, averaging 12.3 points, 10.3 boards, 0.5 steals and 3.5 blocks on 47.4 percent from the field in his last four. If he's still on the wire in your league, you might want to try and find a more competitive league next season.
Feb 26 - 2:12 AM

Terrence Jones moved into the starting lineup and continued his torrid pace on Monday against the Wolves with 15 points, 15 boards, one steal and two blocks in 32 minutes.

As has been the case for his previous two games, it's on. In his last three, Jones averaged 11.7 points, 11.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 3.0 blocks in 28.2 percent from the field. Jones hasn't even hit his stride on offense yet and he could start climbing into the teens for scoring. He has to be owned in all standard leagues.
Feb 23 - 11:25 PM

Terrence Jones will start against the Wolves on Monday.

Based on how awesome he was on Saturday, this is not a surprise whatsoever. Jones has been playing minutes in the upper 20s since his return last week and he's certainly capable of guarding guys on the low block. He has huge upside and should be owned in all standard leagues.
Feb 23 - 6:33 PM

Terrence Jones looked spry again on Saturday against the Raptors, scoring 11 points with nine rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 24 minutes.

He didn't play in garbage time tonight, which is important to take into account because he almost certainly would have played down the stretch in a close game to get him to 29 minutes. Jones' defense has been elite even before he's hit his stride like he is right now and he was a top-25 player before his leg injury in November, so fantasy owners in most leagues should grab him. Additionally, plus-minus isn't the greatest stat, but TJ had a team-high plus-28 in 24 minutes.
Feb 22 - 12:57 AM

Terrence Jones (knee contusion) is considered probable to play against the Raptors on Saturday.

The Rockets tend to list players as probable when there's nothing really to worry about, so Jones' owners can go ahead and pencil him into lineups. Jones looked like his old self on Friday by scoring nine points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 30 minutes, so he will look to keep that momentum going against the Raptors on Saturday.
Feb 21 - 12:48 PM

Terrence Jones scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Jones might have been dropped after an uneventful return to action, but the All Star break was perfectly timed and he showed his upside tonight. He should be owned in most if not all standard formats.
Feb 21 - 2:48 AM

Terrence Jones (leg, illness) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

Despite his awesome defense, Jones' minutes have really been down since his return. The upside is awfully high, but it's hard to keep him owned if there is anything promising on the wire. Kostas Papnikolaou will get more minutes again.
Feb 11 - 9:18 PM

Terrence Jones (illness, leg) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Jones is still on a minutes restriction which has capped his upside but Dwight Howard's knee issue is more than enough incentive to remain patient with him for now. Owners should keep in mind that Jones was sidelined for almost three months due to nerve inflammation in his leg so it's going to take some time for him to figure things out. Keep him stashed on your bench for now and expect much better things after the All-Star break. If Jones sits out on Wednesday, expect Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith to log heavy minutes against the Clippers.

Terrence Jones (flu) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Jones has struggled to make much of an impact since returning from the leg/nerve issue that sidelined him for nearly three months, and he's easily become one of the most frustrating guys to own in fantasy hoops this season. With Jones out tonight, Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith are going to get all the run they can handle, and Kostas Papanikolaou will also be in line for extended minutes. Plan accordingly.

Terrence Jones scored only three points in 14 minutes during Sunday's home loss to the Blazers.

He picked up two rebounds and committed two personal fouls in a thoroughly disappointing performance, but his owners shouldn't lose faith. Jones returned from a severe injury less than two weeks ago, after all, and his role should increase on the flipside of the All-Star break with Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey as his only competition for frontcourt minutes.
Feb 8 - 10:37 PM

Terrence Jones continued to ramp back up for the Rockets on Friday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and one block in 20 minutes off the bench.

Jones is going to slowly get back on track following a serious leg injury, and given his ability to climb the fantasy rankings with lower minutes he should be owned in all standard formats.
Feb 7 - 1:59 AM

Terrence Jones (leg) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

Jones is still on a minutes limit which has limited his tremendous upside, but with Dwight Howard (knee) out indefinitely, Jones should be in line for big minutes in the near future. If you let go of him now, you will surely regret it later.
Feb 6 - 11:51 AM

Terrence Jones played 14 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday with four points, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

He made just 2-of-5 from the field and missed both attempts from the line. Jones hasn't been unleashed just yet, but the blocks are there and he's providing solid defense. He has multiple blocks in three of his last four games and holds very nice upside, so his owners should view him as a hold.
