Jones posted eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), one assist and one steal over 16 minutes in Friday's 109-95 win over the Pistons. Jones had only recorded two points over the past three games, but he was slightly more effective Friday despite his limited shot volume against the Pistons. However, the 24-year-old was unable to generate much output in other areas during the victory. Jones has continued to see relatively consistent playing time since returning to a bench role, but he's struggled to gather much momentum in recent contests.
Jones registered four points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), two assists and a steal in 14 minutes Monday against the Raptors. Jones just wasn't feeling it from beyond the arc Monday night, missing five of his six attempts. He was able to dish out a few dimes, but he certainly didn't earn himself any compliments after how he played in the 128-113 loss. Despite a rough outing, Jones has finished in double figures in three of his last five contests.
Jones registered 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT), 14 assists, three rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 133-102 win over the Spurs. Thanks in part to the extended minutes he received due to the blowout, Jones was able to secure his first double-double of the season. The 24-year-old should remain one of the league's better per-minute assist men even while he remains in a bench role, but he'll be in store for a drop in playing time behind starter Ja Morant in more competitive contests.
Jones will come off the bench Saturday against the 76ers. With Ja Morant (ankle) returning to the lineup, Jones will head back to the bench and presumably see a reduction in workload. Assuming Morant stays healthy, Jones will likely not have much fantasy viability moving forward.
Jones registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and three steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 101-91 win over the Cavaliers. Jones has done an excellent job replacing Ja Morant (ankle) in the starting lineup, and he made his presence felt on both ends of the court once again. Jones' upside will decrease once Morant is ready to return, but he should be a decent alternative for production as long as he remains a starter. He has taken a leap forward in scoring as well, as he has topped the 10-point mark in three of his last five contests.
