Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores 11 in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones tallied 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal during Friday's win over Minnesota.

Jones finished in double figures offensively for the first time since March 14, as the Duke product also dished out at least five assists for the second time over the past three games. Jones has reached the 10-point mark 14 times this season after accomplishing the feat 19 total times last year with the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores 10 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT) and three assists in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

It was another steady effort for Jones, who continues to hold down a consistent backup role to Ja Morant. Jones has played between 13 and 17 minutes in 11 of his last 13 appearances. Typically, Jones doesn't play quite enough to warrant fantasy attention, but he's a high-steals-per-minute player.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Logs season-high 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one steal Thursday in a 122-94 home win against the Clippers.

Jones played 15 minutes, but those were all he needed to supply a great scoring tally. He logged both the team and his personal high in points utilizing said playing time. Jones may be a backup option (behind Ja Morant) but provides serviceable value for deep-league fantasy managers. He is averaging career highs of 8.4 points, 5.0 assists and 1.3 steals across 28 games this season.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Scores eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), one assist and one steal over 16 minutes in Friday's 109-95 win over the Pistons.

Jones had only recorded two points over the past three games, but he was slightly more effective Friday despite his limited shot volume against the Pistons. However, the 24-year-old was unable to generate much output in other areas during the victory. Jones has continued to see relatively consistent playing time since returning to a bench role, but he's struggled to gather much momentum in recent contests.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Struggles from deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered four points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), two assists and a steal in 14 minutes Monday against the Raptors.

Jones just wasn't feeling it from beyond the arc Monday night, missing five of his six attempts. He was able to dish out a few dimes, but he certainly didn't earn himself any compliments after how he played in the 128-113 loss. Despite a rough outing, Jones has finished in double figures in three of his last five contests.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Dishes out 14 dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT), 14 assists, three rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 133-102 win over the Spurs.

Thanks in part to the extended minutes he received due to the blowout, Jones was able to secure his first double-double of the season. The 24-year-old should remain one of the league's better per-minute assist men even while he remains in a bench role, but he'll be in store for a drop in playing time behind starter Ja Morant in more competitive contests.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will come off the bench Saturday against the 76ers.

With Ja Morant (ankle) returning to the lineup, Jones will head back to the bench and presumably see a reduction in workload. Assuming Morant stays healthy, Jones will likely not have much fantasy viability moving forward.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Stuffs stat sheet Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and three steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 101-91 win over the Cavaliers.

Jones has done an excellent job replacing Ja Morant (ankle) in the starting lineup, and he made his presence felt on both ends of the court once again. Jones' upside will decrease once Morant is ready to return, but he should be a decent alternative for production as long as he remains a starter. He has taken a leap forward in scoring as well, as he has topped the 10-point mark in three of his last five contests.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Posts double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 assists, four rebounds and four steals across 31 minutes in Friday's win over the Nets.

Jones posted his second double-digit scoring output of the season as well as his second game with at least 10 assists. He's been making quite an impact since moving to the starting lineup in the absence of Ja Morant (ankle), as he's averaging 6.8 assists to go along with 9.0 points per game over his last six appearances as a starter.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Sets season high for scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones scored 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt) to go with five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes in a 108-94 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.

Sunday marked the first and only three-point makes of the season for the 24-year-old as Jones finally found the bottom of the net in a significant way in his third start. Jones hadn't scored more than nine points this season, scoring just six points in his last two games as he stepped into a starting role with Ja Morant going down last week. The guard has facilitated the Memphis offense in his starts, with teammates Dillon Brooks, Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Anderson taking on the bulk of scoring duties.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting for Morant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is starting Wednesday's game at Boston, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

The 24-year-old will receive first crack as Memphis' starting point guard with Ja Morant (ankle) sidelined for the next 3-to-5 weeks. Jones had nine points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes Monday, and he should continue to see heavy playing time until Morant returns to the lineup.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Could be set for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is likely to take over as the Grizzlies' starting point guard in the absence of Ja Morant (ankle).

With Morant set to miss the next three-to-five weeks -- and Jaren Jackson (knee) still out -- Jones could have a month-long run as the starting point guard for a team in dire need of scoring and playmaking without its two best players. Jones saw extended action (35 minutes) in Monday's win over Brooklyn, which Morant exited in the second quarter. Jones finished that contest with nine points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Gets 35 minutes in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones finished with nine points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals across 35 minutes during a 116-111 overtime win over the Nets on Monday.

Jones ended up playing a big role in the team's first win of the season after Ja Morant went down with an ankle injury. The extent of Morant's injury is not yet known -- but if he is forced to miss time then Jones is likely in line for the starting point guard job. With the Grizzlies also down Justise Winslow and Jaren Jackson at the moment, Jones will have an opportunity to be more aggressive offensively than usual. Per 36 minutes during the 2019-20 season, Jones averaged 14.1 points, 8.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.4 triples per game. He likely won't pop off quite to that extent, but Jones is worth a flyer pickup with Morant's injury severity unclear.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's play-in game versus the Trail Blazers, Peter Edmiston of The Athletic reports.

No surprise here, as Jones was originally deemed doubtful for the contest. As a result, De'Anthony Melton figures to continue seeing backup point guard minutes.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) is doubtful for Saturday's play-in game against the Trail Blazers.

Though Jones was able to participate in five-on-five work, he's likely still not quite ready to make his return. De'Anthony Melton should continue seeing backup duty at point guard.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Could play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) could participate in Saturday's play-in game against the Trail Blazers, Meghan Triplett of Grind City Media reports.

Jones hasn't played in the bubble, but he's progressed to 5-on-5 work and reportedly "looked good and felt good." The team and medical staff will wait until gameday to decide whether he'll make his return during the crucial play-in game.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Out for at least one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has knee soreness and will be re-evaluated in about a week, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

Jones may have picked up the injury in the Grizzlies' most recent scrimmage. It sounds like he'll miss a bare minimum of three seeding games. That should open up additional minutes for De'Anthony Melton, Grayson Allen and Kyle Anderson to take on extra ballhandling responsibilities.

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.
