Derrick Jones Jr. has season high 12 rebounds against Spurs

Derrick Jones Jr. provided seven points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3-PT), 12 rebounds, one assist, and one block across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 106- 100 victory against the Spurs.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. struggled from the field, but was all over the court, and his 12 rebounds represented a season high. Jones Jr., who is known for his high flying dunks, can get rebounds with ease. He continues to develop, not only as a high flyer, but as a player than can rebound, defend, and hit the occasional three-pointer.

Derrick Jones Jr. scores career-high 19 points

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

Fantasy Impact

Jones started for Jimmy Butler (back) and dropped a career-high 19 points in Sunday's win. If Butler is ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Pacers, Jones would most likely draw the start again. Despite the well rounded stat line in Sunday's win, he is only worth a pickup if Butler continues to remain out. The Heat's next scheduled game is Wednesday, away against the Pacers.

Derrick Jones Jr. continues strong December run in Heat road win

Derrick Jones Jr. scored 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-1 FT) in 32 minutes against Philadelphia Wednesday, hauling in six rebounds and dishing out an assist as Miami spoiled the Sixers’ undefeated home record.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. now has three games of 13 or more points in his last four outings, and is averaging nearly 23 minutes per game in December. He’s making an interesting case for fantasy consideration as he creates a roll for himself off the bench on a hot Miami team.

Derrick Jones Jr. continues strong scoring stretch Monday

Derrick Jones Jr. scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-3 FT) while nabbing four steals, adding two blocks, and securing a rebound in 31 minutes against Memphis Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This is the second game of the last three in which Jones Jr. scored 15 or more points and his sixth consecutive game playing more than 25 minutes. Both are strong indications for his development as a player and a potential cause for fantasy players, especially in dynasty leagues, to take a flyer on this young, athletic forward.

Derrick Jones scores season high 17 points in Miami loss

Derrick Jones Jr. scored 17 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3PT, 7-8 FT) four rebounds, four assists, and two steals across 27 minutes in the Heat's loss to the Lakers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Jones made the most of his opportunities when he had the chance on Friday but it's asking a lot for him to contribute consistently. His highest amount of field goal attempts in a game this season is only nine and he is viewed as more of a defensive player when he's on the court.
