  • Jones did not score and had two assists in ten minutes in Friday's loss at Oklahoma City. He was 0-for-2 from the field. Jones had averaged 11.3 points, 6.5 assists and four steals per game over 38.5 minutes the previous four games with Jeff Teague sidelined with an Achilles injury. It's surprising that Jones didn't get more playing time off the bench given his recent success where he also shined on defense. However, head coach Tom Thibodeau likes to give his starters heavy minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Heading back to bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones, with Jeff Teague (Achilles) available and starting, will head back to the bench, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports. Jones had seen huge run over the past four games, averaging 11.3 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 steals across 38.5 minutes per game. But, with Teague back, he'll head back to the bench.

  • Jones compiled 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six assists, four rebounds and four steals in 41 minutes during Wednesday's 120-102 victory over New Orleans. With Jeff Teague (Achilles) missing his fourth consecutive game, Jones was impressive yet again. Over the four-game period, Jones has averages of 11.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 4 steals. While these are going to hold only until Teague returns, it demonstrates his upside, and perhaps puts forward a case for more minutes. Jones has clearly established himself as the backup point-guard, and is worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues and dynasty formats.

  • Jones managed 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 92-89 loss to the Wizards. Jones received a career high minute total, and he finished with a season high in scoring while matching his season high in assists. If Jeff Teague (Achilles), who decided to err on the side of caution after taking part in pregame warmups, sits out of Wednesday's matchup against the Pelicans, Jones would figure to draw a fourth straight start. Prior to these last three tilts that Teague has missed, Jones had seen 20 minutes or more just once this season. Nevertheless, he could be opening coach Tom Thibodeau's eyes.

  • Jones contributed nine points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, seven steals, four rebounds and two blocks across 39 minutes during a 119-108 win over the Suns on Sunday. Jones got another start with Jeff Teague (Achilles) sidelined and played excellently with contributions across the board. The seven steals is an absurd number, after he had picked up four steals in the previous game. After this performance, Jones may have earned himself some more minutes when Teague returns.
