  • Jones (knee) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Pacers. Jones, along with a myriad of Heat players, are questionable or out for the team's seeding game finale Friday. Even if he's cleared, he may not play a full complement of minutes so that he's fresh for the playoffs.

  • Jones produced 18 points (9-11 FG), five rebounds and a blocked shot across 21 minutes in Monday's 114-92 win over the Pacers. While it was announced that Jones would start on Monday, the team announced a last-second switch and instead went with Jae Crowder. The change didn't affect Jones' totals at all, however. His 18 points marked his best scoring total in bubble play. The team will likely alternate between Jones and Kelly Olynyk, depending on the matchup. While Olynyk brings extra height and length to the frontcourt, Jones is quicker off the ball and was better suited for this contest.

  • Jones will start Saturday's matchup against the Suns, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones is replacing Kelly Olynyk in the starting five, which should give the Heat more mobility. In 15 previous starts this season, Jones is averaging 9.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 26.1 minutes.

  • Jones (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday, the Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. Jones initially tested positive for COVID-19 back in June, so he was allowed to travel with the team to Orlando last week after returning multiple negative tests. Still, Jones had to sit out practices while quarantined, but he noted that the break did not cost him in terms of conditioning. He'll have about two weeks to get himself in shape before the Heat resume their season Aug. 1 versus the Nuggets.

  • Jones (illness) will travel to Orlando to participate in the resumed 2019-20 season, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones tested positive for coronavirus in late June, but he was asymptomatic. Assuming he tests negative for the virus when his 14-day quarantine period ends, Jones should be ready to resume practicing with the Heat as early as next weekend. Prior to the NBA's hiatus, Jones appeared in 51 games, averaging 8.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.5 minutes.
