Terrence Jones said that he wants to become an "all-around player" for the Rockets next season.
"I want to get better all-around, in the post, shooting, just come back a better all-around player for my team." Jones is loaded with upside, but his 2014-15 campaign was devastated by injuries. He made just 33 appearances in the regular season, and he never really seemed to be 100 percent. He averaged 13.5 points, 7.6 boards, 1.1 assists and 1.8 blocks in 24 starts this season, but his fantasy value will hinge on whether or not Josh Smith returns to Houston. The presence of Donatas Motiejunas (back) could cause some problems as well, but Jones will likely be the favorite to start next season. May 30 - 12:37 PM

Terrence Jones came off the bench and hit 6-of-12 shots for 12 points, two rebounds, a steal and a three blocks in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

Josh Smith was awful tonight and it would have made sense for Kevin McHale to pull the plug on him and roll with Jones in Game 2, but that didn't really happen. If Jones wants more minutes, he's going to have to do a better job of crashing the boards than he did tonight, but if Smith struggles early in Saturday's Game 3, don't be surprised if McHale turns to Jones earlier in that must-win game.

Terrence Jones said that he is excited for the Rockets' Western Conference Finals matchup against the Warriors.

"It’s been a long, hard year, but I’m blessed to get out there and go to work with my brothers," Jones said. "I’m excited to see what comes from that. I’m definitely ready to get up and down. It’s a great feeling to be playing again." Jones did not suit up for a single game against the Warriors during the regular-season (just another reason to throw out that regular-season, series-sweep statistic), and he'll look to go to work against the West's No. 1 seed. His role was diminished in the second-round when Josh Smith entered the starting lineup, and it'll be interesting to see if that holds true in the Conference Finals.
May 19 - 4:06 PM

Terrence Jones hit 4-of-10 shots to finish with 10 points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's 115-109 win over the Clippers, to tie the series at 1-1.

Jones is going to struggle to put up monster numbers as long as Josh Smith is playing for the Rockets, but Smith lasted just 17 minutes tonight, vs. TJ's 27. He's a fairly dependable and affordable big man to use in daily formats right now.
May 7 - 12:51 AM

Terrence Jones played 16 minutes in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers, scoring just four points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Jones still doesn't appear to be in tip-top shape and while that worked against a broken Mavs team it'll be tougher against the Clippers. There's not a lot of upside here until he shows us that he can run up and down the court with energy.
May 5 - 12:57 AM

Terrence Jones led a late surge to seal the Rockets' Game 5 win on Tuesday, posting 15 points and five rebounds while shooting 6-of-11 from the field with one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

Jones played solid defense vs. Dirk Nowitzki and his clutch scoring helped stem a late run by Dallas, but his role has been diminished with Dwight Howard healthy and Josh Smith soaking up 22+ minutes at PF. He'll have his work cut out for him in the second round of the playoffs, as he'll be starting opposite either Blake Griffin or Tim Duncan.
Apr 28 - 11:21 PM

Terrence Jones started Game 4 on Sunday but he played only 18 minutes to finish with 13 points, six rebounds and one steal.

With Donatas Motiejunas out for the playoffs following back surgery, we've been expecting bigger postseason numbers from T-Jones as the Rockets' starting power forward. He was again overshadowed by Josh Smith, however, and through four games he's averaging only 12.3 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He also has zero assists or blocks in his past three games and owners should at least temper expectations while Houston is matched up with the Mavericks.
Apr 27 - 12:13 AM

Terrence Jones left Tuesday's game in the third quarter after being elbowed in the face by Dwight Howard, but he quickly returned to action.

Jones' body language wasn't encouraging but the team said that he only suffered a bloody nose, and he was only limited in the second half due to Josh Smith's proficiency. He should be fine for Game 3.
Apr 21 - 11:25 PM

Terrence Jones made 6-of-15 from the field and 7-of-11 from the line for 19 points against the Mavs on Saturday with nine rebounds, six assists and one steal.

The shot total is almost shocking and this was the first time in Jones' career he's had more than 10 shots from the field and from the line. Jones saw a little more playing time than expected because of Dwight Howard getting into foul trouble, but he's still a good bet to play over 30 minutes per game in this series. Jones' season flew a little under the radar due to injuries, so he'll be a difference maker if he can stay on the court.
Apr 19 - 12:35 AM

Terrence Jones double-doubled on Monday against the Hornets with 10 points, 11 boards, two assists and four blocks in 31 minutes.

He picked up some minutes at center tonight with Dwight Howard getting some rest. Jones' numbers have dipped a bit in his last five, averaging 7.6 points, 4.8 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.2 treys. He'll look to finish strong on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 12:00 AM

Terrence Jones was quiet in 25 minutes vs. the Pelicans, scoring six points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

A matchup with Anthony Davis is enough to slow down any power forward, and Jones faces an additional challenge with teammate Dwight Howard vacuuming up rebounds and dominating the paint. Dwight will rest on Monday, however, making Jones an excellent option vs. the Hornets' injury-ravaged frontcourt.
Apr 12 - 9:45 PM

Terrence Jones scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and one block in the Rockets' 104-103 loss to the Spurs on Friday.

Jones' conditioning has been a question mark since returning and there have also been reports of aggravation to his rib injury. This game goes a long way toward getting him back into lineups, however, because his immense upside is very hard to pass up.
Apr 11 - 2:04 AM

Terrence Jones was hit in his ribs on Wednesday night and it bothered him the rest of the night.

Perhaps this explains why he only played 17 minutes and didn't look like his usual self on Wednesday. Jones will likely get minutes in the 22-26 range tonight, which is more than enough to start him in standard leagues.
Apr 10 - 6:42 PM

Terrence Jones played just 17 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with two points and one turnover.

It was an awful game from Jones with no other stats, making just 1-of-3 from the field. He just didn't have it tonight and he should be better on Friday against these same Spurs.
Apr 9 - 12:41 AM

Terrence Jones was nearly invisible during Sunday's win over OKC, scoring just six points on 2-of-5 shooting (2-of-4 from the line), with three rebounds, two assists and three blocks through 24 minutes of action.

After exploding for 16 points with seven blocks in his return to action on April 1, Jones has struggled to do much over the past two games, averaging a meager 6.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. His minutes have been in the low 20s, and he hasn't had a lot of shot attempts (5.5 FGAs per game over the last two), but he just has way too much upside to consider dropping him. Look for him to have a bounce-back performance against the Spurs on Wednesday.
