Terrence Jones scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.
His minutes have been all over the place, playing 26, 13 and 30 minutes in his previous three games. He did post a couple duds in his previous two, but for the most part he's been solid this season, posting averages of 10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.9 steals. He should be owned in standard leagues, preferably by the owner of Anthony Davis. Dec 2 - 11:04 PM

Terrence Jones played 26 minutes and had six points and eight rebounds on 2-of-7 shooting in Tuesday's 105-88 win over the Lakers.

Jones has scored a total of six points over his last two games, but it's not too surprising with Anthony Davis simply playing at another level. TJ had scored in double figures in six of his previous seven games before his most recent slump, so he's proven that he can play alongside the Brow. And with Dante Cunningham out indefinitely with a knee injury, it's just a matter of time before TJ gets hot again.

Terrence Jones vanished on Sunday with two rebounds and two steals in 13 scoreless minutes off the bench.

The Pelicans and Mavericks both leaned heavily on small-ball lineups tonight, which resulted in paltry lines for Jones and Omer Asik (two points, four boards in seven minutes). Jones has been a steady value over the past six games, contributing high-percentage points, rebounds, 3-pointers and defensive stats, so his owners should just shrug off tonight's dud.
Nov 27 - 10:28 PM

Terrence Jones played 30 minutes off the bench on Friday vs. the Blazers, scoring 11 points (4-of-10 FGs) with three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one turnover.

With Dante Cunningham (knee) out for the next 4-6 weeks, Jones should consistently flirt with 30 minutes per night. He was averaging 16.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.7 blocks, 1.0 steal and 0.7 3-pointers in his previous six games, and he's currently returning 8th-round value in standard leagues. He should be owned.
Nov 26 - 1:49 AM

Terrence Jones (illness) played 24 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's game, scoring 17 points on 7-of-10 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs.

Jones also grabbed seven rebounds with one assist, one steal, one block and only one turnover, rounding out another worthy fantasy line. His minutes are down with Anthony Davis healthy but that's to be expected, and he's still doing enough to warrant ownership in all but the shallowest leagues. His owners' patience is finally being rewarded.
Nov 24 - 1:21 AM

Terrence Jones (illness) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

Jones has been playing through the illness, so there's no reason to believe that will change tonight. Inconsistency has kept Jones at a late-round evaluation on the year, but he offers a ton of upside and should be owned in most leagues. Go ahead and get him active.
Nov 23 - 12:35 PM

Terrence Jones, who was iffy with a flu bug on Tuesday, played 28 minutes, hit 7-of-13 shots and finished with 17 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block.

Jones was hot last week, scored seven points in just 20 minutes on Saturday, and then got back on track tonight, despite being a game-time call due to an illness. He should be owned in all leagues right now, despite his maddening inconsistency this season.
Nov 22 - 10:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Terrence Jones (knee) is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Alvin Gentry said that he'll "try to give it a go," so it looks like season-long owners can plug him into their lineups for tonight's matchup with Atlanta.
Nov 22 - 6:26 PM

Alvin Gentry said that Terrence Jones (illness) will "try to give it a go" Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

He was downgraded to questionable after Tuesday morning's shootaround, but it sounds like he's going to do what he can to take the court tonight. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Nov 22 - 6:10 PM

Terrence Jones (illness) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game at Atlanta.

Getting downgraded the morning of a game is usually indicative of player headed towards missing that night's contest, but check back later for an official update. Jones has been frustrating to own this season. His last five games are a perfect illustration of this. He's scored at least 15 points and grabbed seven or more boards in three of those contests. In the other two games, he tallied a total of just 13 points and eight rebounds combined.
Nov 22 - 10:26 AM

Terrence Jones played just 20 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for seven points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in Saturday's overtime 121-116 win over the Hornets.

Here we go again. Jones bounces up and down like a basketball and had 15 points, seven boards, two steals and four blocks on Friday, when Anthony Davis posted very similar numbers to what he did tonight (38 points). Jones had been rolling in his previous three games, but the minutes got him tonight. He's averaging 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 1.6 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five games, and if you own him, just hold onto him and wait for his next big line to come in.
Nov 20 - 12:15 AM

Terrence Jones returned to the bench on Friday vs. the Blazers, but scored 15 points (6-of-10 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, four blocks, two triples and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

When he's hot, he's hot. Jones has now hit two triples in each of his last two games and has eclipsed the 30-minute mark in four out of his last five. He's averaging 14.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 0.8 triples in that span, shooting 45.8 percent from the field. Alvin Gentry's rotations can be maddening, but Jones is trending up again.
Nov 18 - 11:16 PM

Terrence Jones started Wednesday's game in place of Anthony Davis (bruised quad), finishing with a game-high 26 points on 9-of-20 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs in 38 minutes of action.

Jones added nine rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and one block in the 89-82 road loss. Davis is day-to-day and we've seen how chaotic Jones' typical role is in coach Alvin Gentry's rotation, but this is a loud reminder of his upside. As usual, he makes sense as an end-of-bench stash in case his role stabilizes in the 28-32 minute range.
Nov 16 - 9:44 PM

Terrence Jones will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Magic, with Anthony Davis (quad) unavailable.

Jones put up a double-double in his previous outing through 30 minutes of action, and his playing time could get into the high-30s tonight sans Davis. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Magic, so he's certainly someone to consider throwing out there in DFS. He's obviously a must-start guy in season-long settings.
Nov 16 - 5:42 PM

Terrence Jones double-doubled vs. the Celtics on Monday with 15 points (7-of-12 FGs, 1-of-3 FTs), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

He came off the bench and logged 30 minutes for just the second time this season, but his playing time has been anything but consistent. In his last five games, Jones has seen 15, 26, 34, 21 and 30 minutes (Monday), so he will be hard to trust until coach Alvin Gentry gives him a stable role. The upside has always been there, but it could be a bumpy ride.
