  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Near triple-double in loss

    Jones recorded 7 points (2-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Friday's 110-96 loss to Golden State.

    Jones saw a major minutes increase following Ja Morant's knee injury in Game 3. The seventh-year guard shot less than 26.0 percent from the field for the fourth time this series but remained impactful on the glass and as a facilitator.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Productive again in Morant's stead

    Jones ended with 21 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 134-95 victory over the Warriors.

    With Ja Morant (knee) out for the series -- and likely for the remainder of the postseason -- Jones has been thrust into the starting point guard role for Memphis. The 26-year-old shined in the opportunity Wednesday, tying for the team lead with 21 points while pacing Memphis with nine assists. He also didn't commit any turnovers while collecting a pair of steals and a block across 24 minutes. Jones will again be asked to try to fill Morant's big shoes and help the Grizzlies avoid elimination in Game 6 on Friday.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting in Morant's place

    Jones will start Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors, Mark Medina of NBA.com reports.

    Jones gets the nod in place of Ja Morant, who is out Monday due to knee soreness. The Duke product is averaging 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals through nine postseason contests.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Posts 19/6/5 in place of Morant

    Jones logged 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and one block over 41 minutes during Monday's 101-98 loss to the Warriors.

    Jones couldn't be expected to match the production or impact of Ja Morant (knee), but he performed well in the superstar point guard's place despite the Game 4 loss. Jones finished second on Memphis with 19 points and committed only one turnover over a team-high 41 minutes. If Morant misses Game 5 on Wednesday, Jones will likely need to have another big game if the Grizzlies are to have a chance to extend the series.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Ruled out Sunday

    Jones (hand) is out Sunday against the Celtics.

    Jones, along with the majority of the Grizzlies' regulars, will be sidelined for the regular-season finale. With Jones and Ja Morant (knee) unavailable, De'Anthony Melton will likely draw the start at point guard.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Absent from injury report

    Jones (hand) will be available for Tuesday's game against Utah.

    Jones was held out of Friday's matchup with the Suns due to a hand issue, but he'll be ready to go Tuesday after a few days off. The guard is averaging 14.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.0 steals over his last six games, all starts.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Sitting out Friday

    Jones (hand) is out Friday against Phoenix.

    Jones was one of four Grizzlies to be listed as doubtful Friday, and he'll be unable to play for the shorthanded squad. De'Anthony Melton will start at point guard.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Doubtful for Friday

    Jones (hand) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Suns.

    The Grizzlies have four starters listed as doubtful, so it looks like they're building in a rest night -- against the No. 1 seed in the West, conveniently -- as the regular season nears its end. As of Thursday, Jones, Jaren Jackson, Desmond Bane and Steven Adams are all expected to be held out. Ja Morant (knee) remains out for Memphis, as well.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Drops team-high 10 dimes

    Jones produced 16 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 132-120 win over the Nets.

    Jones drew another start with Ja Morant (knee) sidelined for the third time over the past four games. The backup point guard ran the offense efficiently, scoring in double figures for a second straight game and dishing out a team-high 10 assists en route to his first double-double of the campaign. Across 17 starts this season, Jones has averaged 12.1 points, 6.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30.5 minutes per game.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Steps up in start

    Jones supplied 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, seven assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Sunday's 122-98 win over the Rockets.

    Jones isn't flashy, but the back-up point guard delivers regardless of his role. Starting in place of Ja Morant (knee) Sunday, Jones co-led Memphis in assists and far exceeded his average of 20.2 minutes per game. Jones has supplied 11.9 points, 6.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 17 games as a starter this season.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting again Sunday

    Jones will start Sunday's contest against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Will Ja Morant (knee) out, Jones will draw his 15th start of the season. As a starter, he's averaged 11.8 points, 6.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30.2 minutes per game.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Shifts to bench

    Jones will come off the bench Friday against the Hawks.

    With Ja Morant (back) returning to the lineup after a one-game absence, Jones will shift back to a reserve role. He's averaging 8.2 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 20.3 minutes per game this season.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Season-high 10 assists Tuesday

    Jones finished Tuesday's 135-102 win over the Pacers with eight points (3-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 26 minutes.

    Jones got his 15th start of the season Tuesday, filling in for Ja Morant (back). Jones often puts up nice assist totals when given extended run, and Tuesday's effort included a season-high 10 dimes. Per 36 minutes this season, he's averaging 7.2 assists.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting for injured Morant

    Jones will start Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

    With Ja Morant (back) shelved, Jones will get the nod. In his prior 14 starts this season, he's averaged 12.1 points, 6.2 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30.5 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Totals 14 points in 19 minutes

    Jones contributed 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and two assists over 19 minutes during Saturday's 124-96 win over the Magic.

    Jones didn't contribute much in the way of peripheral stats, but he had a nice offensive game and finished with his highest scoring total since Feb. 15. The veteran point guard has been logging minutes in the teens as the backup to Ja Morant, and that figures to continue unless Morant is forced to miss time. The situation makes Jones an afterthought in fantasy despite solid per-36-minute averages of 14.4 points, 7.2 dimes and 1.6 steals.
