Jones missed Monday's practice due to illness, and he's listed as doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with Atlanta, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rockets haven't provided any further details, but Jones is presumably quite ill if he's already considered doubtful to play Tuesday night. The Kentucky product has seen his playing time drop off, at times, this season, but he's played at least 20 minutes in five of the team's last six games. Jones is coming off of a 13-point, five-rebound performance Saturday against New Orleans, and he finished with 14 points and six rebounds Friday versus the Spurs.
