Jones came off the bench and played 15 minutes in Monday's 120-109 loss to the Clippers, finishing with four points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three assists, one rebound and one steal.
Jones had accrued 67 total minutes the past two games while Jeff Teague (knee) was sidelined and Derrick Rose (ankle) was limited to one quarter of action. Though Teague remained sidelined Monday, Rose was cleared to play and entered the starting five at point guard, resulting in Jones picking up limited run in a backup role. Once Teague is available again -- perhaps as soon as Wednesday against the Lakers -- it's possible that Jones drops out of the rotation entirely while Rose comes off the bench to soak up minutes at either backcourt spot.
Jones produced eight points (3-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), nine assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 40 minutes during Friday's 116-99 loss to Golden State.
Jones returned from a one-game absence and moved into the starting lineup with Jeff Teague (knee) still on the sidelines. In his first start of the season, Jones was able to put up a solid line despite shooting just 3-of-11 from the field. He has flashed his upside on numerous occasions but rarely gets the playing time to do anything with it. If Teague is forced to miss additional time, Jones could be a nice streaming option if you are in need of assists and steals.
Jones will start at point guard Friday against Golden State, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
With Jeff Teague (knee) unavailable to take the court, it's Jones who gets the nod despite a 50-point performance by Derrick Rose in Minnesota's last contest. Both Jones and Rose figure to share point guard duties until Teague is ready to return.
Jones (foot) has been cleared to play in Friday's game against the Warriors, Chris Hine of The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
After being a late scratch Wednesday against the Jazz with right foot soreness, Jones will be back on the floor as the Timberwolves kick off their five-game road trip. With Jeff Teague (knee) still out, Jones should play a prominent role in Friday's contest, but Minnesota may elect to use Derrick Rose more than usual following his stellar 50-point performance against Utah.
Jones (foot) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Warriors.
Jones was a late scratch from Wednesday's win over the Warriors due to right foot soreness, and while the results of an MRI came back negative , his status for Friday's contest is still in doubt. With Jeff Teague (knee) also questionable, Minnesota may have to lean on Derrick Rose to start at point guard again.
