Terrence Jones has regained feeling in his toes after damaging a nerve in his leg on Nov. 4, but he remains without a timetable.
"It was scary, very scary for me not to have any movement in my leg at first," said Jones, who has nine games and counting. "Now I’m able to move it a little bit ... Hopefully I’ll be back soon. It’s getting better. It’s hard to say, but I just know I’m coming in and it’s improving." He's dealing with nerve inflammation, which is an unpredictable injury, and fantasy owners have no choice but to shelve him and hope for the best. Nov 23 - 9:45 AM

Terrence Jones (leg) has no timetable for his return, and he said that when he first suffered the injury he "couldn't even feel his leg."

Jones bruised a nerve in his right leg, though the presence of nerve damage wasn't initially disclosed so fantasy owners were flying in the dark. He's missed nine games and counting and may still be out a few more weeks. He was producing at a top-40 level prior to the fluke injury, so in most cases he's still worth holding onto, but it's a decision that shouldn't be made lightly in any format. Donatas Motiejunas and Kostas Papanikolaou continue to absorb his playing time, with Motie filling in as a starter.

Fansided reported on Monday that Rockets play-by-play man Bill Worrell said Terrence Jones (leg) "may be out another month" during their game against the Grizzlies.

We had multiple readers ping us with the same info and we have yet to find the tape to confirm that. Perhaps the Houston media can weigh in on this bit of news, and this also highlights how the TV guys can sometimes come with the scoop. Treat this as a pretty well-placed 'rumor' for now, but Jones' owners may want to start looking at contingency plays right away.

Terrence Jones (leg) is still without a timetable to return.

He has a nerve issue in his leg and he is likely going to be out for at least a week. He was just too good before his injury, so his fantasy owners just have to stick with him. Donatas Motiejunas will get some extra run, but is only an option in deep leagues.
Nov 17 - 7:28 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) will be returning after Patrick Beverley (hamstring) according to coach Kevin McHale, and beat writer Jonathan Feigen thinks that Beverley could return for either Sunday or Monday's game.

Jones' timetable has been murky at best and this sounds like an extended day-to-day situation. Hang onto Jones and give added consideration to Donatas Motiejunas as a short-term pickup if he can show us anything tonight.
Nov 14 - 7:38 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the 76ers.

Jones was already ruled out for the week on Monday, so this news should come as no surprise. Donatas Motiejunas has been starting in his place, but is currently averaging just 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds as a starter. However, guys tend to turn in nice lines vs. the Sixers, so it wouldn't be the worst idea to roll the dice on him in a daily league.
Nov 14 - 11:58 AM

Terrence Jones (leg) did not practice on Monday.

He has a nerve issue in his leg and will not play this week. Jones was on an absolute tear to start the season, but his owners have to bench him this week. Donatas Motiejunas finally had a big game on Saturday despite coming off the bench. He'll be a risky play in a three-game week.
Nov 10 - 4:09 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) is expected to miss one week of action with a contusion to his peroneal nerve.

Ouch. Jones was on fire to start the season, but now the Rockets will have to use Kostas Papanikolaou and Donatas Motiejunas even more. Neither player will be worth using in most cases. Jones' fantasy owners should stick with him.

Terrence Jones (leg) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

The leg bruises in the NBA are really piling up and this one will cause Jones his third game, or so it would seem. If he is indeed out, Kostas Papanikolaou will likely benefit because Donatas Motiejiunas has been awful. Jones owners have no choice but to remain patient.
Nov 7 - 3:54 PM

Terrence Jones (bruised right leg) will miss Thursday's game against the Spurs.

While Jones' injury seems minor, this will be the second consecutive game he's missed due to the contusion. Donatas Motiejunas is in line to get the start for Jones against the Spurs and should make for a good-but-not-great fantasy option Thursday night.
Nov 6 - 12:42 PM

Terrence Jones (bruised right leg) will not play in Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

This injury comes out of nowhere, but it sounds relatively minor. We'll be monitoring the situation closely, but it looks like Donatas Motiejunas is set to see heavy minutes as the Rockets starting power forward. Motiejunas will have plenty of opportunity tonight, but he's never really been a guy that can stuff the stat sheet. As a starter last season Motiejunas averaged just 5.0 points and 6.7 rebounds.
Nov 4 - 6:19 PM

Terrence Jones was spectacular against the Celtics on Saturday during a 104-90 win, making 10-of-16 from the field for 25 points with 10 rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

If not for some foul trouble on Wednesday, we'd be talking about what a massive start he's off to. Jones could get some more minutes at center due to some injuries, which is a role he thrived in thanks to shooting around 60 percent from the field last season. All the talk of a breakout season looks pretty good right now.
Nov 2 - 1:14 AM

Terrence Jones needs to be more consistent according to coach Kevin McHale.

Jones had a massive game against The Lakers on opening night, scoring 16 points and adding 13 rebounds, but cooled off in a big way against the Jazz on Wednesday when he managed just nine points and three rebounds. However, after a slow start, Jones was able to turn it on in the 4th quarter when he managed to drain a 3-pointer, block a shot, and then hit a turnaround jump shot all within a minute to help spur the Rockets to victory. "There is no question that he has matured and that is really helping him," McHale said. "Now we just need him to be more consistent. We know what he can do." Jones remains a must-start player in every league.
Nov 1 - 10:47 AM

Terrence Jones had his fourth-year contract option exercised by the Rockets, a source told the Houston Chronicle.

A no-brainer, this was never going to be a difficult decision for the Rockets to make.
Oct 30 - 4:57 PM

Terrence Jones cooled off against the Jazz on Wednesday with nine points, three rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He shot 4-of-5 from the field, so this was still a very solid game. Jones played just 26 minutes and was in foul trouble, but his primary competition, Donatas Motiejunas, played just nine minutes. He is locked in as a mid-round value guy and his owners should expect a bigger game on Saturday.
