Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Agrees to one-year deal with Dallas
Jones agreed to a one-year, fully guaranteed contract with the Mavericks on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Jones garnered a modest reserve role in Chicago's frontcourt for two years but declined a $3.3 million player option to stick with the Bulls this summer. He now joins Grant Williams, Olivier-Maxence Prosper and Richaun Holmes as new additions to a frontcourt that already featured Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber. It's unclear how many minutes Jones will see right away with the Mavericks, but he brings a unique skill set to the crowded group.... See More ... See Less
Derrick Jones: To decline player option
Jones will decline his $3.3 million player option for the 2023-24 season, making him an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Jones made 64 appearances for the Bulls last year, averaging 5.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks across 14.0 minutes per game. He shot 50 percent from the field, 33.8 percent from three (1.3 attempts per game) and 73.8 percent from the free-throw line. Jones' defensive versatility makes him an intriguing option on the open market.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Scores 10 as reserve
Jones finished with 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one block and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 116-91 loss to the 76ers.
Jones fell out of Chicago's rotation between mid-February and mid-March, but his playing time has increased over the last two matchups, both against the 76ers. The 26-year-old has posted 10 points and three rebounds in each matchup while averaging 17.5 minutes per game. While Jones' uptick in playing time against Philadelphia has been encouraging, it seems unlikely that he'll be a reliable fantasy option late in the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Not on Friday's injury report
Jones (groin) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game against Brooklyn.
Jones participated in the Bulls' last two practice sessions and has been cleared for game action during the team's first matchup after the All-Star break. He missed Chicago's previous two games but will likely be able to handle a relatively normal workload Friday.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Participates in Thursday's practice
Jones (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice session, Will Gottlieb of AllCHGO.com reports.
Jones participated in Wednesday's non-contact practice and didn't have any limitations during Thursday's session. Despite missing the Bulls' final two games prior to the All-Star break, he seems to have a good chance to return to action Friday against the Nets.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Practices Wednesday
Jones (groin) participated in Wednesday's non-contact practice, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Jones didn't play in Chicago's final two games heading into the All-Star break due to a groin issue, but he's trending in a positive direction after getting through Wednesday's practice. He might be able to return for Friday's matchup with the Nets, although it's unlikely he'll receive minutes outside the teens, so he's not an attractive fantasy option in most formats....

Bulls' Derrick Jones: Remains out Thursday
Jones (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Milwaukee.
Jones sustained a groin strain Monday against the Magic, and he'll be unavailable for a second consecutive game before the All-Star break. The 26-year-old will have over a week to rest before Chicago faces the Nets on Feb. 24, but it's unclear whether he'll be able to return immediately after the layoff.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Officially listed as out
Jones (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Indiana.
As expected, Jones won't suit up Wednesday after leaving Monday's loss to Orlando with a groin strain. His status for the second half of Chicago's back-to-back set Wednesday remains unclear, but he can likely be considered questionable, at best. DeMar DeRozan (thigh) and Javonte Green (knee) will also be sidelined against the Pacers, so Dalen Terry figures to be a core part of the rotation for the first time in his career.... See More ...

Bulls' Derrick Jones: Looking doubtful for Wednesday
Jones is unlikely to play Wednesday versus the Pacers due to a groin strain, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Jones left Monday's loss to Orlando after playing just nine minutes and will likely remain sidelined for Chicago's subsequent contest. DeMar DeRozan (thigh) is also unlikely to play, and Javonte Green (knee) remains out, so Dalen Terry, who played a career-high nine minutes versus the Magic, could be in store for an elevated role in the Bulls rotation....

Bulls' Derrick Jones: Shut down with injury
Jones won't return to Monday's game against the Magic due to a left adductor strain, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Jones' night will come to an early end after exiting with a hip injury. He'll finish with one point (1-2 FT), one rebound and two steals in nine minutes. Andre Drummond and Tony Bradley could see an uptick in minutes during the second half as a result.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Getting more run at power forward
Jones finished Tuesday's 104-89 loss to the Grizzlies with five points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in 14 minutes.
Andre Drummond has been seeing more run of late as the top backup to starting center Nikola Vucevic, but Jones' ability to play reserve minutes at forward has enabled him to maintain a steady role in the Chicago rotation. Through four games in February, Jones is averaging 3.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks in 16.3 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Officially available Tuesday
Jones (ankle) will be in uniform for Tuesday's game versus the Clippers.
Jones was termed probable leading up to the contest, so this isn't exactly a surprise on that front. He should continue in his frontcourt depth duties logging double-digit minutes off the bench, but he doesn't produce enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Derrick Jones: Probable Tuesday
Jones is probable for Tuesday's contest against the Clippers due to a left ankle sprain, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The high-flying forward has come off the bench in 13 consecutive contests for the Bulls and appears likely to suit up again Tuesday. During that stretch, Jones has averaged 6.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 18.8 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less

Bulls' Derrick Jones: Racks up seven rebounds in defeat
Jones provided three points (1-1 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and three assists over 23 minutes during Thursday's 111-96 loss to the Hornets.
Jones had limited looks from the floor during Thursday's defeat, but he managed to secure a season-high seven rebounds against the Hornets while matching his highest total of the year in assists. The 25-year-old hasn't had much fantasy relevance, as he's averaged just 6.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game over 12 appearances since returning from an ankle injury.... See More ...
