Jones went without a point (0-2 FT) and grabbed two rebounds in nine minutes during Sunday's 110-77 Game 2 loss to the Warriors. Jones has played in each of the last four postseason games, all of which have been blowouts. Unfortunately, the Cavs have been beaten soundly by the Warriors in both contests so far this series, so Jones' presence on the court hasn't been a welcome development. He'll remain outside of the rotation if Wednesday's Game 3 matchup in Cleveland proves more competitive.
Jones (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Monday's 104-93 Game 1 win over the Hawks. The Cavs have kept Jones active for all five of their postseason games to date, but the veteran hasn't got off the bench in any of the last three contests. With coach Tyronn Lue tightening his rotation as the stakes become higher in the playoffs, Jones likely won't see the floor outside of blowouts.
Jones finished with 10 points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, and one steal in eight minutes during the Cavaliers' 106-100 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday. After appearing in just two games during February, Jones has at least seen the floor in six March matchups. With that being said, Jones doesn't do much besides score anymore, and the last time he put up 10 points was back on Jan. 2. Even assuming that Cavaliers' coach Tyronn Lue will continue to rest LeBron James and his stars here and there as the regular season winds down, Jones' impact in fantasy is minimal at best.
Jones (coach's decision) hasn't played in the Cavaliers' last seven games and has played a total of two minutes in the last 10 games. Interim coach Tyronn Lue has effectively eliminated Jones' spot from the rotation, which comes as an unsurprising development with the 35-year-old shooting 37 percent from the field and 35.5 percent from beyond the arc this season. Spot-up shooting is essentially Jones' only skill at this stage of his career, and since he's not doing that particularly well right now, there's little reason for Lue to hand him playing time.
Jones played two minutes in the win over Detroit on Friday. He did not attempt a shot. Jones has not scored in the last six games and has not attempted a shot in his last five games. He still offers another perimeter shooter, but it remains to be seen if Tyronn Lue will give him significant minutes.
