Top Herbert Jones News

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Three steals during start

    Jones logged eight points (4-9 FG), three steals, two rebounds, two assists and one block across 35 minutes during a 98-97 win against the Jazz.

    Jones' steal tally is the most impressive concerning his averages so far. When logging at least 25 game minutes, he's averaged 2.1 steals across seven matchups. Jones' steal rate is good enough to warrant fantasy consideration in deeper leagues, but he's not offering much else.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Joins starting five

    Jones is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Jones will rejoin the starting lineup for the first time since Nov. 2 as the Pelicans opt to go big against Washington. He's averaging 6.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Logs 31 minutes in Monday' s loss

    Jones totaled six points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and one block across 31 minutes during Monday's 110-96 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Jones saw plenty of run during the loss but failed to make the most of his playing opportunity. Injuries have afforded Jones a sizeable role this season, something that was certainly not on the cards on opening night. Outside of some defensive production, there is very little to get us excited when it comes to potential fantasy value. He can be left on waivers in all competitive formats.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Plays 32 minutes in return

    Jones amassed just four points (1-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 108-100 loss to the Thunder.

    Jones returned after missing the previous three games due to ankle soreness, immediately slotting back into a sizeable role. He had been starting prior to the injury and while he came off the bench Wednesday, he could very well be back starting against the Nets on Friday. His role has been surprising but don't let that fool you. At this point, he really just has value as a defensive streamer.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Available Wednesday

    Jones (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    After missing the last three games due to a concussion, Jones came into Wednesday also dealing with ankle soreness, but it appears he is set to return against the Thunder. It's unclear at this time if he will immediately rejoin the starting five, but Jones should be available for his usual workload if the ankle holds up. He's averaging 6.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.4 minutes per game this season.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Listed as questionable

    Jones (concussion) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Thunder.

    Jones has missed the last three games due to a concussion, but he could return Wednesday. Brandon Ingram (hip) has also been sidelined, so over the past three contests Josh Hart and Garrett Temple have entered the starting lineup. However, if both Ingram and Jones are available Wednesday, they will likely reclaim their starting spots.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Questionable against Mavericks

    Jones (concussion) is questionable Monday at Dallas, according to Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Ruled out

    Jones (concussion) will not play in Friday's tilt against the Warriors, Pelicans' broadcaster Erin Summers reports.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Placed in concussion protocol

    Jones sustained a concussion Tuesday against the Suns and has entered the league's concussion protocols.

    Jones will be out Wednesday against the Kings, and there's certainly a chance that he's out again Friday against the Warriors. In his absence, Tomas Satoransky, Trey Murphy and Garrett Temple could see more minutes.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Sustains head injury in loss

    Head coach Willie Green said Tuesday after the Pelicans' 112-100 loss to the Suns that Jones exited the contest after experiencing concussion-like symptoms, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Green added that Jones will be re-evaluated over the next 24 hours before the Pelicans confirm the diagnosis of a concussion, but at this stage, the rookie looks unlikely to be available for the second half of New Orleans' back-to-back set Wednesday in Sacramento. He played 19 minutes in the loss to Phoenix, finishing with eight points (4-5 FG), two rebounds, one assist and one steal.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Plays 36 minutes in loss

    Jones finished Saturday's loss to the Knicks with 12 points (6-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals.

    The 2021 second-round pick continues to be a favorite of new head coach Willie Green, and he's now started six straight games after coming off the bench and seeing just three minutes on Opening Night. Prior to Saturday, Jones hadn't provided much fantasy value, but if he can continue to add defensive production, in particular, he may be worth monitoring in deeper leagues. The Pelicans were without Brandon Ingram (hip), so that helped Jones' case, but he's clearly earned the trust of the Pelicans' coaching staff.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Starting Friday

    Jones will draw the start at small forward in Friday's tilt against the Bulls, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jones will replace Josh Hart (quadriceps) in the starting lineup. The 2021 second-round pick impressed during training camp and will now get a chance to see some run after logging just three minutes off the bench in the team's season opener.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Plays 19 minutes off bench

    Jones finished Monday's preseason game against the Timberwolves with seven points (3-7 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

    The 2021 second-round pick has turned some heads with his play thus far in camp, and he looked good in his first taste of preseason action. The Pelicans don't have a ton of reliable depth on the wing, so it's possible Jones could work his way into coach Willie Green's regular-season rotation.
