Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Paces team in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones scored a team-high 14 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding three rebounds and three steals in 29 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 106-82 loss to the Hawks.

It was a bad night overall for the Heat, but Jones at least continued to see his role increase. The 21-year-old wing has seen at least 20 minutes in four straight games, scoring in double digits in three of them, and with Rodney McGruder failing to distinguish himself as Miami's starting small forward, Jones might even get a chance to start down the road if he keeps producing.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Shines in return to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones went off for 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 31 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Heat's 117-92 win over the Cavaliers.

With James Johnson (illness) back from a one-game absence, Jones relinquished the starting gig at power forward but actually received more minutes in a reserve role than he had the previous game Sunday against Minnesota. That was due in part to the blowout nature of the contest, but Jones still made the most of the opportunity by flashing his athleticism and length on defense. That's not out of the ordinary for Jones, who is averaging nearly a steal (0.8) and block (0.8) per game this season in just 17.7 minutes, but don't expect him to maintain his hot three-point shooting. Prior to Wednesday's contest, Jones had hit only 10 of his 32 attempts from downtown (31.2 percent).

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Coming off bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones Jr. will come off the bench Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Solid showing in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones put up 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and collected nine rebounds along with a block and a steal over 25 minutes Sunday against Minnesota.

Jones entered the starting lineup after James Johnson was ruled out for the evening due to illness. Jones made the most of his uptick in playing time, knocking down 63.6 percent of his field goals and missing a double-double by one board. Despite an impressive night, he'll likely return to a bench role within the next few games, where he's averaged 7.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks over his last 11 contests as a reserve.
