Terrence Jones looked great against the Spurs during a big 104-98 win on Monday, posting a line of 20 points, 11 boards, one assist, two steals and one turnover on 7-of-12 from the field.
He was in a mini slump with only 10.3 points per game in his previous three, but he had great looks in his 40 minutes, which was his highest since Jan. 16. Jones has broken out this season and being able to get to the basket has been a huge reason why. He looks like he's for real and will likely be a player to target in fantasy drafts next season.

Terrence Jones played 17 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday for 11 points, four boards, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

It wasn't his best game and he didn't quite seem as determined as he was on Tuesday, but it may not have been due to injury. Jones had leg cramps on Tuesday and he should still be ready for Friday vs. the Wolves. Keep him in your lineup.
Apr 10 - 12:59 AM

Terrence Jones (leg cramps) will start vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

There was some concern about Jones' status tonight after he suffered a leg injury in the second half of Tuesday's game. He's good to go and was outstanding on Tuesday before his injury, so his fantasy owners can start him tonight in a favorable matchup.
Apr 9 - 7:54 PM

Rockets coach Kevin McHale wasn't concerned about Terrence Jones (leg cramps) after Tuesday's game.

Jones crushed the Lakers, scoring 33 points on 13-of-18 shooting before leaving the game for good due to injury. "Terrence just got cramps," McHale said. "It was nothing more than just cramps." The Rockets have a quick turnaround vs. the Nuggets in Denver on Wednesday, but all signs point to Jones starting at PF as usual.
Apr 9 - 11:40 AM

Terrence Jones went off for 33 points and seven rebounds before pulling up with apparent cramps in his left leg on Tuesday night.

He went to the bench and is being attended to, and with the Rockets up by 24 late in the third quarter, it would be surprising to see him return to the game. He was on his way to a new career high of 37 points, so there's an outside shot he could return if the Lakers close the gap. However, that appears to be a real long shot at this point.

Terrence Jones looked healthy against the Thunder on Friday with 16 points, 11 boards, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 33 minutes.

He's been battling an illness for much of this week and finally seems to be over it. It's too bad because Jones tends to put up bigger lines with Dwight Howard (ankle) out of the lineup and tonight is the latest piece of evidence to support that claim. He's a must-start player the rest of the way for his huge multiple-category upside.
Apr 5 - 1:52 AM

Terrence Jones (illness) will play in Friday's game against the Thunder.

Jones sat out Tuesday and lasted just pitiful 10 minutes on Wednesday. But it looks like he's over his illness and will match up with Serge Ibaka Friday. The Rockets starting five projects as Jeremy Lin, James Harden, Chandler Parsons, Jones and Omer Asik.
Apr 4 - 1:28 PM

Terrence Jones left Wednesday's game against the Raptors early due to his lingering illness.

One night after sitting out completely, Jones lasts just 10 minutes. He looked really sluggish, going 0-of-4 from the field with three rebounds and one turnover. Donatas Motiejunas is starting the second half.
Apr 2 - 8:32 PM

Updating a previous item, Terrence Jones is starting against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Donatas Motiejunas was announced as the starter, so coach Kevin McHale may have changed his mind at the last instant. Jones has been very effective in games without Dwight Howard, so he becomes an interesting player to watch tonight now that he's back with the starters.
Apr 2 - 7:11 PM

Terrence Jones (illness) will come off the bench against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Donatas Motiejunas will get another start and apparently Jones is not at 100 percent from his illness. Chances are fantasy owners will want to avoid this situation considering it's a 13-game night.
Apr 2 - 7:01 PM

Coach Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones (illness) is "hopeful" to play against the Raptors on Wednesday night.

He is reportedly feeling better, but he's not a lock to play just yet. Jones missed Tuesday's game due to flu-like symptoms and he could be limited a bit tonight. Donatas Motiejunas would likely start, but he's a risky play after a quiet Tuesday.
Apr 2 - 5:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Terrence Jones (flu) will not play on Tuesday and Donatas Motiejunas will take his spot at PF.

Motie and Omer Asik will form a makeshift frontcourt for the Rockets, who will likely turn to Omri Casspi and small lineups out of necessity.
Apr 1 - 7:48 PM

Terrence Jones (flu) is expected to play "a little bit" on Tuesday.

Jones told coach Kevin McHale, "I'll give you what I've got." With Dwight Howard (ankle) already sidelined it sounds like the Rockets will have to lean heavily on Omer Asik and Donatas Motiejunas, while turning more than usual to small lineups.
Apr 1 - 6:46 PM

Terrence Jones (flu-like symptoms) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Jones has an opportunity to do some damage with Dwight Howard out Tuesday night, but his health may not cooperate. We'll update Jones' status as we get closer to tip off, but owners who are playing daily leagues should be prepared to plug in Omri Casspi and Donatas Motiejunas as value options if Jones sits.
Apr 1 - 12:31 PM

Terrence Jones sat out Monday's practice due to illness.

The Rockets begin their four-game week in Brooklyn on Tuesday and we should get a better sense of Jones' status after shootaround. If he can't suit up, Donatas Motiejunas and Omri Casspi should each assume bigger roles in the Rockets' weakened frontcourt.
