Derrick Jones Jr.
F - CHI
Chicago Bulls F Derrick Jones Jr. logged 22 minutes on Monday and contributed four points, seven rebounds, and an assist during a 120-109 win over the Spurs.
During his first two games since returning from a multi-month injury, Jones Jr has been a bit shaky. He's logged 22.5 minutes on average but has failed to score over 10 fantasy points in either of the matchups. With Zach LaVine's return on the horizon, Jones may slot back into a 15-17 minute bench role when the veteran returns.
Derrick Jones Jr will return to action tonight against the Thunder. He was recovering from a broken finger, and has been sidleined for the past three weeks.
DJJ broke his finger during rehab for his knee injury earlier this season. He will likely wear a splint, as he was originally given a 6-8 week timeline for the injury. Javonte Green (foot) and Zach Lavine (knee) are both questionable, so there's a chance DJJ sees a decent amount of action tonight.
Per Woj, Chicago Bulls F Derrick Jones Jr., has entered the leagues health and safety protocols and will be out of the lineup for the time being.
Add Jones to the list of Bulls who have contracted COVID this year as he joins Demar DeRozan, Coby White, Matt Thomas and Javonte Green as the players who are currently under the protocols. Troy Brown Jr. will step into the lineup in the meantime while the Bulls remain rather thin in their depth.
Derrick Jones Jr. scored 11 points on 4-for-6 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 23 minutes on Monday as the Blazers beat the Rockets.
Jones saw some action on Monday after two straight DNPs and has sat in five of his previous seven games. The 24-year-old forward is no longer worth owning in fantasy as his role has disappeared with the team.
Derrick Jones Jr. scored four points on 2-for-6 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and a steal over 20 minutes as the Blazers lost to the Clippers by a 113-112 score.
Jones picked up the start on Tuesday but did not do much with the opportunity. The 24-year-old forward has seen a reduction of minutes with the acquisition of Norman Powell and is no longer a must-own in fantasy leagues.
