by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones totaled four points (2-5 FG), two rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 21 minutes during Thursday's 107-98 win over the Magic.

Jones returned to the lineup after exiting Monday's matchup against the Hawks with a bruised left knee. Jones is mostly known for his prowess as a dunker, but he could have the opportunity to showcase himself as a more well-rounded player in 2019-20.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Contract guaranteed for 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Heat officially guaranteed Jones' contract for 2019-20 after he remained on the roster following the Aug. 1 deadline, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Rumored to be on the move to Dallas in a trade earlier this offseason, Jones ultimately stayed put after the Heat ultimately brought in two other teams to facilitate the four-way deal that sent Jimmy Butler to Miami. The athletic forward will earn approximately $1.6 million in 2019-20 before hitting the market next July as an unrestricted free agent. Jones emerged as a rotation wing for Miami during the past season, starting in 14 of his 60 games while averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks in 19.2 minutes per contest while shooting 49.4 percent from the field.

Mavericks' Derrick Jones Jr.: Sent to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was traded from the Heat to the Mavericks on Sunday along with Kelly Olynyk as part of a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

Jones spent the majority of the 2018-2019 season in a bench role, averaging seven points along with four rebounds over 60 games. He may have a chance to see an uptick in playing time with Dallas, though he'll have to beat out Tim Hardaway and Dorian Finney-Smith to do so.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will not return to Monday's game against the Celtics after suffering a right knee injury.

Jones suffered the injury in the first half of Monday's game, playing 17 minutes and collecting two points. James Johnson started the second half in his place, and should be in line for a larger role if Jones is forced to miss more time. Jones will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Miami, and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against Boston.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Will be available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (personal) will be available for Monday's game against the Celtics, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

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

Jones is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Celtics for personal reasons, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Jones missed Saturday's shootaround for personal reasons, but was able to play in that game, so this could be a similar situation. More information should come out following the team's activities on Monday morning. If Jones is unable to go, James Johnson could see increased playing time.

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

Jones is questionable for Saturday's game against the Knicks due to personal reasons.

The Heat could be down yet another player, as Jones might not play Saturday. If that's the case, James Johnson would be a candidate to see extra minutes.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Serviceable line in thumping loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones ended with 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 116-87 loss to Milwaukee.

Jones played 25 minutes as the starting small-forward, coming away with a serviceable yet unspectacular line. The Heat were embarrassed on both ends of the floor which meant a number of players were impacted in terms of playing time. Prior to this game, Jones had scored in double-digits just once since the end of January. Outside of his athletic upside, Jones is not a standard league asset and can be left on the waivers in most formats.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Scores 18 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones finished with 18 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and a block across 26 minutes in the Heat's win over the Nets on Saturday.

His point total matched a season-high, and Jones also chipped in four boards and a block in Saturday's loss. He's only averaging 7.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game this season, and his solid performance on Saturday shouldn't be expected to remain the norm moving forward.

March 1, 2019 05:48 PM

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is probable for Saturday's game against the Nets due to a a bruised right knee, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Available vs. Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) is available to play in Wednesday's game against Golden State, Shandel Richardson of The Athletic reports.

Jones was held out of Monday's loss to the Suns due to an illness, but after practicing Tuesday and being listed as probable for Wednesday, the high-flyer has been deemed fit to play against the Warriors. Jones has appeared in just two of the Heat's last 11 games due to the illness and a knee injury, but he should be a full go off the bench Wednesday.

Jones was held out of Monday's contest against Phoenix due to illness, so it's good to see that he was able to get back on the floor with his teammates Tuesday. While he appears to be trending in the right direction, he's still a game-time decision at this point.

Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Will not play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) has been ruled out Monday against the Suns, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Along with Jones, who is dealing with an undisclosed illness, the Heat will be without the likes of Justise Winslow (knee), Rodney McGruder (knee) and James Johnson (shoulder), leaving the team thin at forward. Kelly. As a result, look for the Heat to rely more heavily on Josh Richardson and Dion Waiters on the wing, along with Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside up front.
