C - ATL
Damian Jones registered 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 FT) seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks across 26 minutes in Thursday’s 127-117 win over the 76ers.
Jones was promoted to the starting lineup and delivered a solid stat line in Thursday’s win over the 76ers. He reached double figures for the first time since January 14th. With all the injuries to Atlanta’s front court, Jones can be used as a streamer. He is more of a deep-league option in season-long leagues. The Hawks next scheduled game is Saturday, away against the Mavericks.
Damian Jones is the starting center for Thursday’s game against the 76ers.
With Bruno Fernando and Alex Len both ruled out, Jones will draw the start at center. He is averaging 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.7 blocks across 43 games this season.
Damian Jones managed 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a block across 27 minutes in the Hawks’ 123-110 win over the Suns on Tuesday.
Jones came off the bench Tuesday despite the absences of Alex Len and Bruno Fernando, though he saw increased playing time in the victory. On the season, Jones has logged just 16.8 minutes per contest, though he could continue to see a bump in minutes in the short-term if Len and Fernando remain out.
Damian Jones will come off the bench Thursday against the Jazz.
The Hawks will switch things up and bump Jones from the starting five. He has started most of the season, but has played 18 minutes or less in four of his last five games. Bruno Fernando will replace him in the starting five.
Damian Jones chipped in 10 points (5-for-6 FG) and three rebounds in the Atlanta Hawks' 136-102 loss at the Chicago Bulls Wednesday night.
After posting a career-high 20 points just three games ago, Jones has struggled to produce. Since his career outing, Jones is averaging just 4.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game, but he is shooting 60% from the field. Despite the high field goal percentage, Jones is struggling to find the volume that would make him relevant in fantasy.
