Terrence Jones (concussion) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He suffered the concussion in the car accident on Wednesday. Jones will have to go through the protocol and could miss games through the break. That means more run for Josh Smith while Trevor Ariza continues to thrive at power forward.
Feb 5 - 5:42 PM

Terrence Jones was involved a car accident on Wednesday and has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

The Rockets are saying that Jones is not injured, but they want to hold him out for one game which is likely just a precaution. Jones has fallen out of favor in Houston, so his absence won't have a significant impact on the Rockets' rotations. Josh Smith will pick up a few extra minutes on Thursday.
Feb 3 - 6:52 PM

Terrence Jones played 29 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots for 11 points, seven rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.

He still came off the bench, but saw a big boost in minutes with Clint Capela (thigh) and Dwight Howard (suspended) in street clothes. Jones played a grand total of 20 minutes with six points and two rebounds in his previous two games, so look for him to take a big step back with Capela and Howard close to returning.
Feb 2 - 11:27 PM

J.B. Bickerstaff said that if Clint Capela (thigh) can't play Tuesday vs. the Heat, Terrence Jones and Josh Smith will split minutes at the center spot with Dwight Howard (suspension) also unavailable.

Jones logged a season-low six minutes in his previous outing, but he'll likely return to a 20-minute role with the Rockets if Capela can't give it a go tonight. Josh Smith would likely see his playing time in the high-20s, but neither guy makes for all that attractive of a DFS option with a tough matchup against Miami.

Terrence Jones played a season-low six minutes in Saturday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting.

Prior to Saturday's game, coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that the Josh Smith trade has hurt Jones' playing time and he took the blame for the forward's recent struggles. Regardless, Jones is clearly out of the rotation in Houston, so only a trade can save his season at this point. If you're still stashing him, feel free to let him go if he is not dealt by the Feb. 18 trade deadline.
Jan 31 - 12:15 AM

Terrence Jones played 17 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with 11 points, three rebounds and one steal.

He played 11.2 minutes in garbage time during the fourth quarter, so that amount of playing time is slightly misleading. Jones is going to need a trade to salvage his value, so he's only a stash right now.
Jan 28 - 12:11 AM

Terrence Jones played a season-low 10 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavs, registering just one point and one assist during his time on the court.

Jones lost a lot of minutes to Josh Smith today, and unfortunately for Jones' owners that trend could continue given that the result was a win and Smith was a primary component to Houston's comeback victory. There's a major logjam at the four-spot in Houston with Clint Capela, Montezl Harrell, Smith and Jones all vying for minutes, and it's only going to get worse once Donatas Motiejunas (back) is healthy enough to return to the court. At this point, the only thing that can help Jones realize his potential is a trade, so he's not much more than a stash at this point.
Jan 24 - 7:05 PM

Terrence Jones scored 14 points in 32 minutes against the Bucks on Friday, adding eight rebounds, one assist, four blocks and one turnover.

The Rockets went small a lot, which definitely benefits Jones because he's had some strong runs in previous years. Jones is turning it up in his last three, averaging 14.0 points, 6.0 boards, 2.7 treys and 0.7 treys. He should be owned in standard leagues right now until he cools off because his upside is so high.
Jan 23 - 1:30 AM

Terrence Jones stepped up against the Pistons on Wednesday with 18 points, two rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He made 8-of-9 from the field and was terrific to help fill the void left by Dwight Howard (ankle) tonight. Regardless of Dwight's status, Jones should be picked up in standard leagues while he's going strong.
Jan 21 - 12:05 AM

Terrence Jones played 20 minutes against the Clippers on Monday with 10 points, eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

The Rockets basically went with four smalls next to Dwight Howard down the stretch, which meant minimal run in the clutch for the other bigs. Jones is still worth holding in standard leagues for his ability to stuff the stat sheet.
Jan 19 - 1:41 AM

Terrence Jones had a forgettable evening on Sunday, coming off the bench for two points on 1-of-7 shooting, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and five personal fouls in 22 minutes.

None of Houston's starters played more than 27 minutes which should have yielded a productive game for Jones, but he never got it going vs. the Lakers. He's averaging 2.5 points on combined 2-of-13 shooting in his past two games, erasing any momentum he gained from two solid games on Jan. 12 and 13. If you're stashing him in the hopes of a trade, at least keep him benched until he gets it going.
Jan 18 - 12:05 AM

The bad Terrence Jones came to play on Friday, as he hit just 1-of-6 shots on his way to three points, four boards, two assists, one block and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

Jones had been playing well in his previous two games, so of course he had to put up this dud. He's been mired by inconsistent play throughout the year (largely due to earning just 23.3 minutes per game) and his averages of just 9.9 points, 4.9 boards, 0.7 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks per game don't give us much to be excited about. He's basically just a stash in deep leagues with the hopes that he's sent away from J.B. Bickerstaff by the trade deadline.
Jan 16 - 2:07 AM

Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff has been encouraged by Terrence Jones' recent play.

"The talent is there with Terrence," Bickerstaff said. "We need to get to a point where it’s there every night and we can depend on Terrence because he’s a big part of what we do. He’s a big part of our big rotation up front." Jones will continue to come off the bench behind Clint Capela, but he has played an average of 32.0 minutes in his last two games with averages of 18.0 points, 6.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers. Welcome back to the standard-league radar, Jones.

Terrence Jones started the second half of Wednesday's game and racked up 16 points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes, but he'll return to a bench role on Friday.

J.B. Bickerstaff liked how Jones matched up vs. the Wolves tonight, hence the switch that sent Clint Capela to the bench after halftime. Jones' owners still must be pleased -- he's logged 30+ minutes in three of Houston's past four games and is finally building the momentum that's eluded him all season. He's trending in the right direction and makes for a very nice stash.
