Jones scored six points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-5 FT) while adding three rebounds and a block in 12 minutes off the bench during Monday's 128-107 loss to the Wizards.
The 25-year-old has been a DNP for the last six games, but with the Suns down by 28 at the half, coach Monty Williams emptied his bench in the final frame. It's only the second time this season Jones has seen double-digit minutes, and while his per-minute production Monday was solid, it's not likely to result in a meaningful role in the frontcourt rotation.
Jones agreed Sunday with the Suns on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Jones will provide some insurance at center for the Suns in the likely event Aron Baynes heads elsewhere in free agency this offseason. The 25-year-old enjoyed a 19-game run as a starter for the Hawks during the 2019-20 campaign, but he saw his playing time tail off as the season unfolded. He ultimately finished with averages of 5.6 points, 3.7 boards and 0.7 blocks in 16.1 minutes per game across 55 appearances.
Jones (illness) available for Friday's game against the Nets.
Jones was originally questionable due to an illness, but he's feeling good enough to play. With Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) out, Jones should see some backup center minutes.
Jones is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets due to an illness, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Jones may have caught the same illness that Trae Young has. More information on Jones' status may arrive following Friday's morning shootaround.
Jones will come off the bench Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jones has started the past seven games for a banged up Hawks team, but he's seen just 15 minutes in each of his past two appearances. Dewayne Dedmon, who was acquired from the Kings prior to the trade deadline, will get the start at center in favor of Jones on Wednesday.
Jones contributed 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 win over the Timberwolves.
Jones had a pretty strong showing in this game, putting up numbers across the board. Unfortunately, his time in the limelight might be short-lived as the Hawks just revamped their frontcourt with the additions of Clint Capela and Dewayne Dedmon via trade. Jones wasn't exactly a full-time, fantasy-relevant option in shallower leagues to begin with, but these acquisitions basically shut the door on the hopes of any significant production when this frontcourt is at full strength.
Jones scored 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 FT) and had seven rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Thursday's 127-117 win over the Sixers.
Jones got his first start since Jan. 4 due to the absences of Alex Len (hip) and Bruno Fernando (calf), and he made the most of his chance while posting his joint third-best scoring and joint second-best rebounding outputs of the season. His value will depend heavily on what happens with both Len and Fernando moving forward, but Jones should remain Atlanta's starting center while these two aforementioned players remain out -- that could lead to a sizable spike in both playing time and production, at least in a short-term scenario.
Jones is starting at center Thursday against the 76ers, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jones will get the start Thursday with both Bruno Fernando (calf) and Alex Len (hip) sidelined. In 20 starts this season, Jones is averaging 8.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 block in 19.6 minutes.
Jones (hip) will be available for Monday's game against Denver, Brad Rowland of Sports Line reports.
Jones was questionable earlier in the day due to a right hip issue, but the team has now cleared him for action. He'll come off the bench Monday with both John Collins and Bruno Fernando in the starting lineup.
Jones (hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Denver, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Jones remains in contention to play Monday, though his right hip appears to have tensed up a bit overnight. If he's held out, Alex Len and Bruno Fernando could each see minor upticks in minutes.
Jones is considered probable for Monday's game against Denver due to an adductor issue, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
The official designation is "tension" in the adductor, but it doesn't look as though Jones will be headed toward an absence Monday.
Jones had two points (1-1 FG), six rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during Saturday's 116-111 win over the Pacers.
Jones surprisingly started against the Pacers but produced just one field goal, and he hasn't scored more than two points in any of Atlanta's last nine games -- a span where he has received three DNP designations. Regardless of his role moving forward, he's simply not producing enough to remain relevant in most fantasy formats.
Jones will start Saturday's contest against the Pacers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Atlanta is dealing with a myriad of injuries, so Jones and Bruno Fernando will both get the nod in the frontcourt. Across 19 previous starts, Jones has averaged 8.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20.1 minutes.
Jones will come off the bench Thursday against the Jazz, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Jones and Jabari Parker will both head to the bench Thursday as the struggling Hawks switch up their lineup, with Bruno Fernando and Cam Reddish both joining the starting five as a result. The big man's production has dipped over his past five games, evidenced by his averages of 6.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 15.0 minutes over that stretch.
Jones compiled 10 points (3-4 FG, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and one block in 21 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 101-96 loss to the Lakers.
The performance was adequate enough for fantasy managers that used Jones as a blocks and field-goal percentage streamer, but the center's overall utility has otherwise followed a downward trajectory since he put up a season-high 20 points on Dec. 4. Most troubling is the fact that Jones hasn't played more than 21 minutes in any of the past five games, as coach Lloyd Pierce has began to give more run to backup Alex Len. With John Collins set to return from suspension Dec. 23 and immediately reclaim a high-minute role in the frontcourt, the playing-time outlooks for Jones, Len and Jabari Parker are only likely to worsen from here.
Jones compiled 20 points (8-8 FG, 4-9 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 130-118 loss to the Nets.
Jones finished with career highs in points and minutes while matching his career high in rebounding. While he struggled from the charity stripe, Jones didn't miss a single shot from the field. He'll likely continue to benefit from the easy looks created by Trae Young, and Jones has now reached double figures in scoring in six of the last 12 games.
Jones scored a career-high 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, an assist and a steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 104-79 win over the Warriors.
The former Golden State draft pick (30th overall in 2016) took his revenge on the team that traded him this offseason. Jones has been posting fairly modest numbers since moving into Atlanta's starting lineup, averaging 9.9 points, 4.5 boards and 1.0 blocks in 21.4 minutes over the last 12 games, but Monday's performance might earn him more court time at the expense of bench bigs Alex Len and Brune Fernando.
Jones finished with four points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes during Sunday's 122-101 loss to the Lakers.
Jones was in the starting lineup again Sunday but failed to replicate his production from the previous night. He did, however, contribute across the board and the 26 minutes are very encouraging. Alex Len played just 15 minutes and it would appear the Hawks are going to run with Jones, at least in the short term. He is by no means a must-roster player but could be considered if you are looking for a cheap big man with upside.
Jones ended with 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 FT), four blocks, three rebounds, and one steal in 23 minutes during Saturday's 150-101 loss to the Clippers.
Jones was basically the only bright spot for the Hawks during what was an embarrassing loss to the Clippers. The Hawks are experimenting at the center position with Alex Len struggling to produce thus far. Jones certainly flashed his defensive upside with four blocked shots and one steal during his 23 minutes on the floor. This could have been an even bigger night had the game been even moderately close. The Hawks have to backup Sunday when they face the Lakers. Look for Jones to remain in the starting lineup for that one.
Jones will start at center Tuesday night against Denver, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Jones is set to draw his first start of the season after playing extended minutes Sunday against the Trail Blazers. He's averaging 4.5 points and 2.6 boards over eight games this year,. Alex Len (ankle) remains questionable for Tuesday's clash and will come off the bench if cleared to play.
