Jones was traded from the Heat to the Mavericks on Sunday along with Kelly Olynyk as part of a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports. Jones spent the majority of the 2018-2019 season in a bench role, averaging seven points along with four rebounds over 60 games. He may have a chance to see an uptick in playing time with Dallas, though he'll have to beat out Tim Hardaway and Dorian Finney-Smith to do so.
Jones (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Friday's 111-109 loss to the Timberwolves. Jones missed Wednesday's game against the Celtics due to a knee injury but was cleared to return for this one. Nevertheless, he didn't end up seeing the floor after all, this despite earning a season-high 21.5 minutes per game across 15 matchups in March.
Jones (knee) will play in Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. After not playing in Wednesday's game against Boston with the right knee injury, Jones will be back in action Friday and potentially back in the starting lineup with Josh Richardson (groin) ruled out for the next two weeks. In 14 games as a starter this season, Jones is averaging 7.7 points and 4.2 rebounds across 22.2 minutes per game.
Jones, who has been diagnosed with a right knee bone bruise, is questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Jones didn't play Wednesday against the Celtics, but it's possible he's back as soon as Friday. We may learn more following the Heat's morning shootaround.
Jones (knee) won't be available for Wednesday's game against Boston, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. Jones exited Monday's matchup with Boston following a right knee injury, and although there's been no further news on the issue, the team has ruled him out for Wednesday. James Johnson should fill in with Jones on the shelf.
