Heat's Derrick Jones: Goes off with 23-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Hornets.

Jones has started 13 of Miami's last 15 games and while his production has not been very good, he remains capable of these scoring outbursts on any given night. For what is worth, this 23-point outing was his second-highest scoring performance of the season.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Defensive production Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones ended with just four points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 31 minutes during Sunday's 100-89 victory over the Wizards.

Jones saw an uptick in his playing time with Jimmy Butler (toe) only able to last 24 minutes. Jones compiled four defensive counters but struggled on the offensive end of the floor. It doesn't sound as though Butler is going to miss significant time but if he misses any time, Jones could provide interesting streaming value.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Back to starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will start Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Jones' starting role has fluctuated lately, but he'll get the nod Friday. Across his eight starts this season, he's averaging 9.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 28.4 minutes.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

The 23-year-old started six of the last seven games but will return to the bench Wednesday with Jimmy Butler (personal) retaking the court. Jones is averaging 10.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.2 steals in 27.2 minutes through 10 games in February.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Brings defense vs. Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones started at small forward and contributed 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and four steals across 27 minutes Saturday in the Heat's 124-105 win over the Cavaliers.

Jones drew his seventh start of the season while Jimmy Butler (personal) was away from the team, delivering one of his better all-around lines of the season. Considering the Heat have already ruled Butler out for Monday's rematch with Cleveland, Jones will likely be in store for another top-unit assignment and quality minutes to go along with it. He looks like a worthy short-term streaming option, particularly for fantasy managers looking for defensive stats production.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Returns to starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is starting Saturday's game versus the Cavaliers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Jones started the previous four games before coming off the bench Thursday against Atlanta, but he'll return to the lineup for Saturday's game. The 23-year-old is averaging 9.0 points and 3.5 rebounds over 27.2 minutes in six starts this season.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Shifts to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will come off the bench Thursday against the Hawks.

Jones started the last four games before the All-Star break, but he'll give way to Jae Crowder in this one. Across seven appearances this month, Jones is averaging 10.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 27.9 minutes.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Bests Gordon in dunk contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones defeated the Magic's Aaron Gordon in the final round of Saturday's Sprite Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend in Chicago.

Appearing in the contest for the second time in his career, Jones was able to outlast Gordon after judges awarded him 48 of a possible 50 points on a second tiebreaker dunk in which he converted a windmill jam with his left hand. Gordon, meanwhile, was awarded 47 points on his final dunk, during which he jumped over 7-foot-5 Celtics center Tacko Fall. Though Jones' athleticism has long been his calling card, he's starting to translate his physical gifts into more well-rounded production in his fourth NBA season. The forward entered the All-Star break averaging 8.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 assists in 24.7 minutes per game -- all career highs -- while shooting 49.4 percent from the field.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Enters starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will start at small forward in Friday's game against the Kings, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

With Jimmy Butler (shoulder) sidelined, Jones will draw the spot-start. He has averaged 13.0 points and 4.5 rebounds across 32.0 minutes in two starts this season.

Heat's Derrick Jones: Scores 15 in 37 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered 15 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 37 minutes during Monday's 137-106 win over the 76ers.

Jones matched his career high in minutes, which he just happened to have set in an overtime win against these same Sixers on Dec. 28. Meyers Leonard (ankle) exited early and Justise Winslow (back) is out for at least another week-plus, so Jones may be in line for ample minutes again in Wednesday's tilt versus the Clippers.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Returns to Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (eye) checked back into Monday's game against the Kings, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Jones went to the locker room after being poked in both eyes, but he managed to return for the final seconds of the fourth quarter. He finished with seven points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and an assist across 28 minutes.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable to return to Monday's game against Sacramento after being poked in both eyes in the third quarter.

Jones drew the start Monday with Jimmy Butler (hip) out, though Kendrick Nunn and Dion Waiters could pick up extra minutes down the stretch if he's unable to return.

January 20, 2020 04:24 PM
Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will move into the starting lineup Monday against the Kings.

The Heat will be without Jimmy Butler (hip), so Jones will get the nod at small forward for what will be just his second start of the season. He'll be joined by Duncan Robinson, Kendrick Nunn, Meyers Leonard and Bam Adebayo.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Logs 16 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had six points (2-5 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block in 16 minutes during Sunday's 107-102 loss to the Spurs.

Jones crashed the glass and put home an incredible put-back slam, but he wasn't that involved in this one despite the continued absence of Justise Winslow (back). Jones averaged 25.5 minutes in December and 27.1 minutes through his first eight appearances in January, and fantasy owners can likely expect him to earn plenty of minutes more often than not when Winslow is out.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Ready to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (thigh) will be available to play Friday against the Nets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The 22-year-old was considered questionable after sustaining a left thigh bruise at some point, but the injury won't end up impacting his availability Friday. Jones averaged 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.5 steals and 2.0 blocks in 33 minutes over the last two games and will look to continue his strong stretch of play in Brooklyn.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Questionable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is questionable for Friday's matchup against Brooklyn due to a left thigh bruise.

This is the first report of the forward's thigh injury, as Jones has participated in the last 18 straight games for the Heat. The UNLV product could likely end up being a game-time call due to his questionable tag for Friday's game. Over 23 appearances this year, Jones is posting a career-high 9.0 points per outing.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Fills it up in 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones supplied 18 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 122-108 win over the Pacers.

Jones contributed in every category except assists while earning another fairly heavy minute total off the bench. He has reached double figures in scoring in four of the last six games, and he has recorded at least two rejections in four of the last 11. Furthermore, Jones has amassed at least two steals eight times through 23 appearances this season, though the return of Justise Winslow (back) could result in a little less playing time going forward.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Scores 19 to go with full line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones produced 19 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 122-111 win over the Trail Blazers.

Jones drew the start in place of Jimmy Butler (back) and poured in a career high scoring total while filling up the stat sheet across every category. It's unclear whether Butler is in serious danger of missing Wednesday's matchup versus the Pacers, but if he's unable to give it a go Jones could be in line to start once again.

January 2, 2020 11:36 PM
Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Scores 10 in 28 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones managed 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-9 3Pt), six rebounds, two steals and one block in 28 minutes during Thursday's 84-76 win over the Raptors.

Jones has reached double figures in scoring in six of his last 10 appearances, plus he continues to make his mark on the defensive end. Despite his limitations as a shooter, Jones fits in well offensively too thanks to his off-ball cutting ability and willingness to do the dirty work.

December 21, 2019 12:04 AM
Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Scores 14 points in thumping win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones managed 14 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 26 minutes during Friday's 129-114 victory over New York.

Jones continues to play meaningful minutes off the bench, amassing 26 minutes in the victory. He is typically called upon for his defense, although his ability to score at a high efficiency was on show here. The defensive ability is enough to keep him on the floor in most games and with his current role, he is worth a speculative pickup in most formats.
