Terrence Jones (concussion) is doubtful for the Houston Rockets ' last three games before the All-Star break, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Jones was involved in a car accident Thursday that required a trip to the hospital, but he has since been released and was being evaluated by the team's medical staff early Saturday. He is in the NBA's concussion protocol and it seems likely that the Rockets will hold him out until after the break. The Rockets have been surviving with smaller lineups, using Trevor Ariza at the four, but Josh Smith and Montrezl Harrell could see more minutes if coach Bickerstaff opts to use a bigger front court pairing.
Terrence Jones has been diagnosed with a concussion after being involved in a car accident Thursday afternoon, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jones will be held out of Saturday's matchup with Portland.
Initially, it was reported that Jones escaped the incident without any injuries, but further evaluations revealed that he sustained a concussion. As a result, Jones, who sat out Thursday's game, has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers. Consider the forward day-to-day and questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Warriors in Oakland.
Terrence Jones was in a car accident Wednesday and as a result will not play in Thursday's game against the Suns, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Jones did not suffer any injuries from the accident, but the Houston Rockets have still opted to have him stay home rather than travel with the team for Thursday's contest. He should return for Saturday's game against Portland. Look for Josh Smith, Trevor Ariza to see some extra time with Jones out.
Terrence Jones provided one point (1-2 FT) and one assist over a season-low 10 minutes in Sunday's 115-104 win over the Mavericks.
After playing 32 minutes in the Houston Rockets ' previous game against the Timberwolves and producing 14 points and eight boards, Jones looked like a worthy DFS option heading into the day with Dwight Howard (ankle) missing his second game in a row. However, after picking up two fouls, Jones ended up losing out on playing time to the newly-acquired Josh Smith, who ended up leading all bench big men with 23 minutes. Smith (16 points, three boards) played well in the outing and could maintain primacy over Jones in the Rockets' rotation, which would be extremely detrimental to Jones' value. Continue to track the playing time distribution between both Jones and Smith over the next few games.
Terrence Jones recorded 10 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-7 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, and one assist across 20 minutes in Monday's 140-132 overtime loss to the Clippers.
Jones combined for five points in the Houston Rockets ' previous two games, so it was nice to see him find some success offensively, though he still didn't shoot especially well from the field. The forward has seen between 20 and 22 minutes in all of the last three games, and until he provides a little more production and consistency off the bench, he won't pose an overwhelming threat to Clint Capela's starting role.
