Terrence Jones disappeared on Saturday with three points and five rebounds on 1-of-5 shooting.
He played just 19 minutes and picked up three fouls, so we're not overly concerned. However, after his long layoff, it's going to take him time to get back to form, and if Dwight Howard wasn't out for the next month with a knee injury, we wouldn't even tell you to own him. But given Howard's lengthy absence, there's a decent chance that Jones gets hot at some point in the next couple weeks. Feb 1 - 12:28 AM

Date:

Terrence Jones played 20 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with seven points, two boards and three blocks.

He played 21 minutes on Wednesday and the Rockets are going to keep his minutes in check for a bit. Jones has a huge upside and the Rockets are going to need him to play him more with Dwight Howard (knee) out indefinitely, so more minutes are on the way. Jones is worth owning in standard leagues.

Terrence Jones finally returned from his leg injury on Wednesday and had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer, and while we've not been high on him, the news of Dwight Howard's edema in his right knee changes things. Jones could see some serious run if Howard is going to miss time, so we now like the idea of taking a flier on him. He could be forced into heavy action for an extended period of time if Howard is going to be shelved.

Terrence Jones (leg) will be active and available for the Rockets on Wednesday, though he'll be limited to 15-20 minutes.

Houston will ease Jones into the mix after his lengthy rehab from a nerve issue which has kept him on the sidelines since Nov. 3. He may even start on Wednesday with Dwight Howard (ankle, knee) very unlikely to play. Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas complicate Jones' role when Houston is at full strength, but he has enough upside to be worth a stash if he's still floating on the waiver wire.

Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale is a huge fan of Jones' game, but after missing nearly three months of action he will likely be eased into action upon his return. Jones is more than worth a flier in deeper leagues, but it will be interesting to see how coach McHale tweaks his crowded frontcourt rotation that includes Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard (ankle).

Rockets head coach Kevin McHale said there's a chance that Terrence Jones (leg) could play against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Jones was able to go through a full practice on Tuesday and it's looking like there's a chance the Jones will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Mavericks. He'll be battling for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith upon his return, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues at this point.
Jan 27 - 1:49 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

This comes as good news as this is the first change to Jones' status in months. Jones doesn't belong on standard league fantasy rosters as he'll likely be eased back into a crowded rotation alongside Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, but he's worth a flier in deeper leagues.
Jan 27 - 12:38 PM

When head coach Kevin McHale was asked about Terrence Jones' availability for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas, he did not rule Jones out and said that he will return "sooner rather than later."

McHale added that Jones could return "within a week," and it appears he is getting very close to playing basketball again. However, he will be fighting for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, so it will be very difficult for him to produce the same way he was at the beginning of the season. Still, he's worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 25 - 3:19 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) will not play on the current three-game road trip.

The Rockets could get him back soon and he is with the team. Jones is in the final stages of his rehab and there's at least a chance he could play next week. While he was on fire to start the season, things are a little different with Donatas Motiejunas playing well and Josh Smith in town. If you want to grab him in exchange for some dead weight, it's not a bad idea. He certainly won't be as great as he was to start the season.
Jan 21 - 4:17 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) has been more active at practice lately, and while he has yet to go through a full-contact workout, he continues to make steady progress.

"I am more active than I've been in so long," Jones said. "Being on the court feels real good and it's a blessing to be able to get up and down and finally move my leg a little and jump and do things with the basketball that I couldn't do two months ago at all." Jones continues to make progress, but the fact that he's going to be fighting for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith, and Dwight Howard, his long-term outlook isn't looking great.

Terrence Jones (leg) is making progress, but he hasn't had a full contact practice yet.

While he was spotted taking jumpers this week, this news suggests he is going to be out a little while longer. Jones is said to be in the "final stages" of his rehab, but there's simply no telling when we will see him in action. His return should make things interesting in Houston's crowded frontcourt that includes Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard, so Jones' outlook for the season isn't that inspiring.

Terrence Jones (leg) was spotted getting some shots up during Sunday's practice.

Jones is currently in the "final stages" of his rehab, but it's not clear exactly what that means, and he remains without an official return date. He'll return to a crowded frontcourt featuring Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, and he'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so his rest of season outlook isn't looking promising.
Jan 18 - 4:13 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) is in the "final stages" of his rehab before returning to the floor.

That's still not the clear answer we're looking for on Jones and there is no timetable for his return. Jones has been out since Nov. 3 due to some nerve issue in his leg and chances are he'll be limited upon his return. He was putting up second-round value out of the gate, but the emergence of Donatas Motiejunas and the signing of Josh Smith hurt his outlook. If you want to stash him for some dead weight, go for it.
Jan 17 - 6:18 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) has been "working hard and progressing well" in his rehab, according to general manager Daryl Morey.

The Jones updates have been rare, so we'll have to take what we can get here. Morey added that Jones will "provide a lift when he returns," which certainly isn't a substantial quote. Either way, Josh Smith isn't really a great fit, so Jones could get minutes in the 20s. Still, there are almost too many questions to stash him.
Jan 14 - 4:21 PM

Coach Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones (leg) could be out for a month to six weeks.

Well, now it makes a little more sense why the Rockets picked up Josh Smith. Jones' nerve damage to his leg was much worse than the Rockets were letting on, so it'll likely be a two-way split at power forward for Smith and Donatas Motiejunas -- they'll also get some minutes at center. Jones can be cut in most leagues.
