Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Goes for 18 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones notched 18 points (6-13 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists and five rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 118-79 win at Brooklyn.

Jones has topped the 15-point plateau in each of his last two appearances and seems to be settling as Ja Morant's main backup alternative. Jones had a stretch of six games scoring in double digits earlier this season but, for the most part, his numbers have been so inconsistent that he can't be trusted from a fantasy perspective night in and night out.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Best game of season Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine assists, four steals and one rebound across 19 minutes during Monday's 127-88 win over the Hawks.

Jones put on his best performance of the season in the victory, scoring efficiently while tying season highs in both assists and steals. He also committed just one turnover. Only five other players this season have a game with at least 15 points, nine assists, four steals and one or fewer turnover. Impressively, Jones' effort was in just 19 minutes, while the next fewest amount of court-time needed to achieve the feat was 27 minutes by Jimmy Butler.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores in double figures again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones put up 13 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 19 minutes during Sunday's victory over the Wizards.

That's Jones' sixth double-digit scoring effort in a row. He's played at a top 60 level in nine-category leagues over his previous five outings, posting 13.4 points, 4.4 assists, 1.4 threes and 1.0 steals per game, while shooting 62.5 percent from the field, and seeing only 20.1 minutes per game in that span. This level of production might be unsustainable - particulalry due to the serious jump in field-goal percentage, as he's shooting just 46.6 percent on the season. As long as Ja Morant and De'Anthony Melton are around, Jones might struiggle to be a consistent option, but he's worth a look while he's on this hot streak.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Showing improved form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes in Monday's 96-82 win over the Pistons.

Jones noticed a role reduction for a good portion of January while De'Anthony Melton seized a larger role as the Grizzlies' top guard off the bench, but the fifth-year player has stepped up his game over the past three contests. He's reached double figures in scoring in each of those games while tallying a combined 12 assists against two turnovers.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores 12 in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones amassed 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four assists and one rebound in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 127-106 win over the Knicks.

Jones had been held to single digits in scoring in seven straight showings, and he is in the midst of his quietest month thus far this season. In fact, his minutes have dropped to just over 16 per game in January, and Jones is only a viable option in deeper leagues.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Four assists in 14 minutes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones accumulated three points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four assists and one rebound across 14 minutes during Friday's 134-121 victory over the Spurs.

Jones has routinely played under 20 minutes this season, as Ja Morant and De'Anthony Melton have cemented roles in the backcourt as well. Still, Jones can rack up assists in limited action. He's currently ranked 18th in the NBA in assist percentage (32.3), and he leads the league at 13 performances with four or more assists in fewer than 20 minutes.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Matches season high in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones pitched in 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes during Thursday's 110-97 win over the Thunder.

Jones matched season highs in scoring and threes while amassing over twice as many points as shot attempts. He did finish with as many turnovers as assists, but overall it was a solid showing for the 23-year-old point guard. Nevertheless, Jones is most viable in deep leagues given that he doesn't rack up a bunch of counting stats on a consistent basis.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Dishes out nine assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3PT), nine assists, two steals and one rebound in 20 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 128-111 win over the Wizards.

Jones has been a reliable passing threat of late, notching at least seven assists in four of his last five games. He should continue as Ja Morant's main backup, but he could still provide value for owners looking for a streaming alternative that could rack up assists on limited playing time.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting in place of Morant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is starting at point guard Friday against Milwaukee, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Jones will draw another start Friday with Ja Morant (back) out of the mix. This marks his fifth start in the last eight games. Jones is averaging 7.3 points, 5.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds in his last four starts.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Three steals in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones ended with nine points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), seven assists, three steals and one rebound in 28 minutes during Saturday's 126-112 loss to the Jazz.

Jones made another start for the Grizzlies, turning in a well-rounded performance. The scoring is never going to be a strength for Jones, however, the seven assists and three steals were very nice indeed. De'Anthony Melton was in early foul trouble which afforded Jones a little extra run. The upside is capped for Jones but as long as he is starting, he is worth a look if you need steals and dimes.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Dishes out seven assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 115-107 win at Minnesota.

Jones thrived in his first game as a starter, as he ended just three assists shy of a double-double. Morant has been listed as week-to-week, so Jones should experience a considerable uptick on his value on a short-term scenario.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Enters starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is starting Sunday's game at Minnesota, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Ja Morant is unavailable and considered week-to-week with back spasms, pushing Jones into the starting role. Jones is averaging 5.9 points, 1.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 19.3 minutes this season, but he should have increased opportunities while Morant remains sidelined.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Hands out eight assists in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones contributed 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 138-122 loss to Dallas.

Jones moved into the starting lineup for Saturday's game with Ja Morant (rest) given the night off. In his 28 minutes on the floor, Jones managed to hand out a team-best eight assists to go with 14 points. Jones is playing just 22 minutes per night this season and currently sits outside the top-150 in standard formats. Should Morant suffer any sort of injury, Jones would become a must-roster player. However, until then, he remains more of an assists and steals streaming option.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will start Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

With Ja Morant getting the day off for rest, Jones will make his first start of the year. In the three games that he's seen at least 24 minutes, Jones has averaged 11.0 points, 5.3 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Good to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (ankle) is ready to roll Friday versus the Magic.

Jones will avoid missing his first game of the season despite a minor ankle issue that popped up Thursday. He should be ready for his usual role, averaging 7.4 points, 4.6 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals over 21.7 minutes per contest off the bench.

November 7, 2019 06:20 PM
Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Probable with sore ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has been deemed probable for Friday's game against Orlando due to a sore right ankle.

It doesn't look to be anything of great concern, but Jones' status is worth keeping an eye on after shootaround Friday morning. Jones has topped 20 minutes in each of his last three games, and he's coming off of an eight-point, five-assist performance Wednesday against Minnesota.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Picks up three steals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones compiled 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 25 minutes Monday in the Grizzlies' 107-100 loss to the Rockets.

With Grayson Allen (ankle) sidelined, Jones played backup point guard minutes and saw some time alongside Ja Morant in an off-ball role, generating a useful stat line in the process. Jones is still best viewed as a steals and assists streamer, but he might be worth holding if his minutes end up settling into the 25-to-30 range on a consistent basis.

October 28, 2019 12:00 PM
Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Poor shooting in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones tallied five points (1-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and two steals in 21 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Grizzlies' 134-133 overtime win over the Nets.

Jones opened the campaign with a 15-point, seven-assist performance, but he's since fallen on hard times. In particular, a 2-for-15 showing from the field in the subsequent two contests has limited Jones' overall fantasy impact, but those rostering him probably weren't doing so with the expectation that he would provide efficient scoring. Instead, Jones profiles more as a streaming option in rotisserie leagues for fantasy managers looking for help in the assists and steals categories.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Steady showing in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones produced 15 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven assists, two steals, and one rebound in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 120-101 loss to the Heat.

Jones played just one less minute than rookie starting point guard Ja Morant. Moreover, Jones finished with more points, dimes, and steals. It's possible Jones will push Morant for minutes, particularly on nights when the rookie is making mistakes. With that being said, unless the two end up sharing the court together for stretches, Jones may have his value capped to a certain extent.

October 16, 2019 11:12 PM
Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores 16 points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones totaled 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 124-119 win over the Thunder.

Jones started in place of Ja Morant (rest) and filled up the stat sheet. This shows what Jones is capable of in case Morant is forced to miss time at some point this season. If that were to happen, Jones would immediately be a quality add across all formats.
