The Pelicans are reportedly looking to trade Terrence Jones in the wake of Sunday's deal that brought DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.
The desire for a trade is a "mutual decision" between the team and Jones' representatives, and it makes sense now that frontcourt minutes are scarce. The sheer uncertainty of his situation makes it difficult to own him, but Jones' fantasy value could spike if he's dealt an ideal role -- he's a luxury hold until the deadline passes.

Terrence Jones (thumb) and Dante Cunningham (personal) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Wednesday will be New Orleans' final game before the break, so it makes sense to hold Jones out with the Pelicans only playing for Ping Pong balls. With both Jones and Cunningham on the sidelines, Alexis Ajinca will have another opportunity to start, and Anthony Davis will flirt with minutes in the 40s. Both Jones and Cunningham should be back in action after the All-Star break.

Terrence Jones (thumb) will not play on Monday vs. the Suns.

This is the third game in a row on the shelf for Jones, but he remains day-to-day. With Dante Cunningham (personal) out, we could get an extended look at Donatas Motiejunas tonight.

Terrence Jones (thumb) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Suns.

Dante Cunningham (personal) has already been ruled out for Monday night, so if Jones can give it a go, he'll likely be looking at 30-plus minutes as a starter. Check back closer to tip-off for an official update on Jones.
Feb 13 - 3:01 PM

Terrence Jones (right thumb) will not play in Sunday's game against the Kings.

Jones will miss his second straight game with the injury, which will allow Dante Cunningham to get his second consecutive start. Donatas Montiejunas could see added minutes in this contest as well.

Terrence Jones (right thumb) is questionable to face the Kings on Sunday.

He missed the last game to allow Dante Cunningham to get the start. Cunningham was somewhat productive with 12 points, four boards, one block and three treys in 38 minutes Donatas Motiejunas was not with two points in 19 minutes. If Jones can't go, Cunningham might be a decent low-end punt or Sunday stream. He'll likely be a game-time call.
Feb 11 - 9:10 PM

Terrence Jones (thumb) and Tyreke Evans (ankle) will not play against the Wolves.

This will be Jones' first game out of the lineup due to his thumb sprain. He was actually playing well and seemed to have the starting job locked up, so his fantasy owners should hold steady. Dante Cunningham and Donatas Motiejunas could look to get some added minutes while the Pelicans could use their centers. Motiejunas is only worth an add in deep leagues.
Feb 10 - 6:43 PM

Terrence Jones (right thumb sprain) is listed as questionable for Friday's game at Minnesota.

This is the first we've heard of a thumb issue for Jones. Since we can't glean much info from the game notes, we will have to wait for the coach Alvin Genty or Jones himself to speak after shootaround. Jones has been playing his best ball of the season of late. He has started each of the Pels last nine games and is averaging 15.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals over that stretch. Dante Cunningham and Donatas Motiejunas would soak up most of Jones' minutes if he does not play.
Feb 10 - 12:48 PM

Terrence Jones scored 21 points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes during a 127-94 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

TJ's fantasy owners are in a strange spot right now. The good news is coach Alvin Gentry seems to be committed to playing him regular minutes, but the bad news is Jahlil Okafor possibly being traded would hurt Jones' playing time and production. He should be owned in standard leagues right now.
Feb 9 - 12:40 AM

Terrence Jones played 30 minutes in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Saturday, scoring 15 points with four rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He played 26 of those 30 minutes next to Anthony Davis, so coach Alvin Gentry didn't really stagger him too much. It doesn't really matter where Jones gets his minutes and it's just a matter of him hitting 24 consistently. He should remain owned in standard leagues even though he may not start every game.
Feb 4 - 9:44 PM

Terrence Jones started Wednesday's game but didn't do much, scoring 11 points with three rebounds, one turnover, and zero assists, steals or blocks.

It was a two-man show for the Pelicans tonight, with Anthony Davis (31 points, 12 boards) and Jrue Holiday (22 points, 11 assists) doing the heavy lifting. Jones has been a strong mid-round value over the past few weeks, and owners can expect a better outing on Saturday whether he's starting or coming off the bench.
Feb 1 - 11:57 PM

Terrence Jones will start Wednesday's game with Dante Cunningham (wrist) coming off the bench.

Jones is coming off a nice game on Sunday, with 12 points, four boards, four assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes. The starting gig is one more reason to like him tonight, and he's worth owning even if he eventually heads back to the bench due to matchups.
Feb 1 - 7:15 PM

Terrence Jones played 34 minutes and hit 6-of-14 shots for 12 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block in Tuesday's 108-106 OT loss to the Raptors.

Jones was solid tonight after Sunday's 10-minute, 2-point dud when he missed all six of his shots and played just 10 minutes. He's scored in double digits in five of his last six games and is still worth owning in most leagues, not only for his strong play of late (for the most part), but also as the best Anthony Davis insurance in existence.
Jan 31 - 10:10 PM

Terrence Jones scored two points with three rebounds and one assist in Sunday's loss to the Wizards.

Jones cooled down tonight, hitting 0-of-6 shots and playing a season-low 10 minutes. Games like this can be expected, as he is back to his bench role and his minutes will fluctuate on a nightly basis. We’ve seen what he is capable of doing when given the opportunity, but with Anthony Davis (quad) back, Jones’ ceiling takes a hit. That being said, he remains a very good handcuff to Davis.
Jan 29 - 8:31 PM

Terrence Jones returned to the bench on Friday vs. the Spurs but stayed hot with 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting.

Anthony Davis (quad) returned to action and Jones only played 24 minutes (including 11 next to Davis). However, he thrived once again and added seven rebounds, one assist and one triple. Meanwhile, Dante Cunningham was invisible with four points in 29 minutes. Jones is an elite handcuff for Davis' owners, but like we've seen for the last few weeks, he has enough standalone value to warrant ownership in all standard leagues. If Davis is ever shut down, look out.
