Jones finished with 14 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and two steals over 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Hornets on Thursday. Jones put together another solid effort in Thursday's loss, drawing another start. With Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow) officially shut down for the remainder of the season, expect Jones to see heavy minutes as the team's starting point guard. The former Final Four Most Outstanding Player should be a big fantasy asset across all formats for the remainder of the season.
Jones finished with 10 points (3-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and a steal over 33 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Warriors on Tuesday. He drew another start with Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow) both on the shelf and came away with a decent stat line in Tuesday's loss. Jones doesn't have a high ceiling, but he has a pretty solid floor with his assist and steal totals buoying some bad scoring nights.
Jones scored zero points, adding just five assists and four rebounds in 29 minutes during Sunday's 117-102 loss to the Rockets. Jones fell flat Sunday, missing all six of his shot attempts, ending the game with just a handful of peripheral numbers to his name. Jeff Teague (foot) was out again Sunday and there is still no clear timetable on his return. The Timberwolves are not going to make the playoffs and given the trouble Teague has had with his foot this season, he could be shut down. This is merely speculation at this stage but does seem a very real possibility. Jones could be dropped in a number of leagues after this performance but should be viewed as a standard league asset, at least until we get an update on Teague.
Jones managed 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 29 minutes during Thursday's 120-100 loss to the Jazz. Jones filled in capably as the starter once again with Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow) sidelined. Jones has reached double figures in scoring in three straight games, combining for 41 points while sinking 18-of-29 field goal attempts and five-of-10 shots from beyond the arc. It's possible Teague and/or Rose will be healthy enough to return for Sunday's matchup with the Rockets, but without anything to play for it's also fairly likely that the Timberwolves play it safe with their veterans down the stretch.
Jones totaled 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 133-107 loss to Denver. Jones moved into the starting lineup Tuesday, replacing Jeff Teague (foot) who was ruled out prior to tipoff. Jones was solid in his 27 minutes on the floor, although the assist numbers were a little disappointing. Teague continues to be troubled by his foot injuries and could be given more time off moving forward. There is no official word on how serious this injury is but given the Timberwolves are basically out of playoff contention, it is a very real possibility he gets shut down. As soon as we get word that Teague could miss any amount of time, Jones would become a must-roster player.
