Pelicans' Terrence Jones: Plays only 13 minutes in Sunday's loss
Jones was held scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and collected two rebounds and two steals across 13 minutes in Sunday's 91-81 loss to the Mavericks.
After seeing at least 20 minutes in each of the last 10 games and performing well in nearly all of those contests, it was surprising to see Jones get such limited run Sunday, especially with forward Dante Cunningham (leg) out of the picture. Game flow likely factored into Jones' limited workload, and while the forward's role figures to remain somewhat volatile while he remains with the second unit, he's still producing enough to warrant a roster spot in most deeper leagues. Jones is averaging 10.4 points (on 43.5% shooting), 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal over 23.0 minutes per game in his last five appearances.
