Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Gets six assists in season debut

Jones scored two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added six assists, two rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes in Tuesday's 116-80 win over the Grizzlies.

With Ricky Rubio (elbow) out indefinitely, Jones figures to enter the rotation for the foreseeable future as the top backup to newly-appointed starting point guard Kris Dunn. Unless Dunn falters badly with the top unit for the duration of Rubio's absence, there isn't going to be much opportunity for Jones to see the sort of minutes necessary to give him any meaningful fantasy value.
