  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Strong defensive effort Thursday

    Jones amassed 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, four assists and four steals in 40 minutes during Thursday's 115-109 loss to the Suns.

    The points, assists and steals were all new playoff highs for the rookie, but Jones' performance wasn't enough to force a Game 7. He averaged 10.7 points, 3.3 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.8 steals over six games against Phoenix, and while he should remain in a complementary role behind CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram next season, plus Zion Williamson, the Pelicans will be looking for Jones to take a step forward.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Impactful in loss

    Jones finished with four points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals in a 112-97 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday.

    Jones was everywhere on the court in Game 5. The rookie used his defensive prowess to force Phoenix into turnovers and help New Orleans capitalize on the offensive end. Look for more of the same in Game 6 from one of the league's best young defenders.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Provides two steals, three blocks

    Jones finished Sunday's 118-103 win over the Suns with 13 points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals across 35 minutes.

    The rookie continues to make a name for himself as one of the best and most versatile on-ball defenders in the entire league. Jones has at least one steal in all four games of the series, but his shot blocking is what was most impressive Sunday night. Two of Jones' three blocks came on jumpshot attempts in which he skied to get a piece of shots that initially appeared to be clean looks. The Alabama product has played 41, 40 and 35 minutes over the last three games, respectively.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Logs 41 minutes in victory

    Jones finished Tuesday's 125-114 victory over the Suns with 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), one rebound, three assists and one steal across 41 minutes.

    Jones' 41 minutes on the court was a season-high, and while his lock-down defensive skills don't show up on paper, he was a critical piece in Game 2. He paired his defensive prowess with efficient shooting in the win, and he logged more minutes than anyone else on the team. Based on usage alone, Jones warrants consideration as a value-upside DFS candidate down the stretch.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Renders lock-down defense vs. Spurs

    Jones produced 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 113-103 win over San Antonio.

    Jones was largely responsible for covering Dejounte Murray in the play-in contest, and he held the star guard to a 5-for-19 shooting line and a modest 16 points. Jones recorded a pair of blocks and steals and added a 5-for-7 shooting line along with 12 points on offense. The rookie could be a difference-maker in Friday's play-in contest against the Clippers as he's likely to be tasked with the tough defensive assignment of containing Paul George.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Available Wednesday

    Jones (lower leg) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's play-in game against the Spurs.

    Jones was sidelined for the regular-season finale with a leg injury, but the absence was considered merely precautionary so it's not surprising to see him available for the win-or-go-home matchup. The rookie made 78 appearances during the regular season and averaged 9.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.7 steals in 29.9 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Ruled out Sunday

    Jones (lower leg) will not play Sunday against Golden State.

    The Pels will give the rookie the night off as they head into what's ultimately a meaningless game. Expect Jones, who's been one of the NBA's best steals producers this season, to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's play-in game against San Antonio.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Six steals in Sunday's win

    Jones chipped in 16 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and six steals in 38 minutes during Sunday's 116-108 win over the Lakers.

    The rookie wing tormented the Lakers on the defensive end as he set a new career single-game high in steals, while also scoring in double digits for the seventh time in the last 11 games. Jones is averaging 11.2 points, 3.2 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.2 threes over that stretch as he tries to help the Pelicans hang onto a spot in the play-in tournament.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Tossed in second half

    Jones was ejected from Monday's game against Charlotte after being assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jones was tossed after an inadvertent elbow struck Miles Bridges in the third quarter. He finishes the contest with five points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 19 minutes. Trey Murphy and Naji Marshall should expect to see more minutes down the stretch as a result.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Leads team with 22 points

    Jones recorded 22 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds and three steals over 32 minutes during Tuesday's 131-115 loss to the Suns.

    Jones was effective in absorbing most of Brandon Ingram's (hamstring) missing output. Jones was filling in for CJ McCollum, but upon McCollum's return, Jones supplanted Naji Marshall at the wing and drew the start. Despite the blowout result, Jones appeared to be a much better fit for the Pelicans' scheme. Jones is more of a pure scorer than Marshall, who is a better defensive tool.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Drops 15 points Wednesday

    Jones added 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds during Wednesday's 108-102 loss to the Magic.

    Jones scored in double figures for a second straight matchup, and his 15 points were the most he has recorded since dropping a career-high 26 versus the Cavaliers on Dec. 28. The rookie is averaging 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in the month of March so far.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Improved play in lopsided win

    Jones closed Sunday's 123-95 win over the Lakers with 11 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists and three steals across 31 minutes.

    Jones got back to what he does best Sunday, taking advantage of a highly disappointing Lakers outfit. After a stretch of three straight sub-par performances, with single-digit scoring and no three-pointers, fantasy managers will be breathing a sigh of relief after Jones was able to deliver on the defensive end of the floor, adding a handful of points in the process. The rookie has surpassed all expectations thus far this year and so while there are going to be some additional bumps in the road, he should remain a must-roster player the rest of the way.
