Tyus Jones has been listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Jones doesn't hold too much fantasy value when Ja Morant is healthy. John Konchar would likely see those minutes behind Morant if Jones is sidelined.
Tyus Jones scored 18 points (5-10 FG, 5-8 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go along with six rebounds, eight assists and one steal on Sunday against the Kings.
Jones has had some big performances this season in spot starts with Ja Morant sidelined, but this was certainly his best game of the season off the bench. Jones is not super reliable when Morant is healthy, but he is well worth rostering to stream when he finds himself in the Grizzlies starting lineup.
Tyus Jones scored 28 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3PT, 5-5 FT) to go along with five rebounds, 10 assists and two steals on Monday against the Heat.
The 28 points scored by Jones was a career-high as he continues the pattern of succeeding in games where Ja Morant is sidelined. The Grizzlies play next on Wednesday against the Thunder so Morant will likely be back for that game moving Jones back to his reserve role but if he suffers any kind of setback and remains sidelined, Jones once again becomes a must stream for fantasy managers.
Tyus Jones scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds and six assists on Sunday against the Nets.
Jones started and played 34 minutes. He could continue to see this type of playing time with Ja Morant week-to-week. Jones has shown flashes of solid production when Morant has been sidelined before and that should continue.
Tyus Jones dropped 17 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3P, 2-2 FT) and added three rebounds, five assists, and three steals over 36 minutes in Memphis' 102-92 loss to Washington on Sunday.
Jones got the spot start with Ja Morant out of the lineup on Sunday and delivered a decent fantasy stat line. He deserves to be inserted into fantasy lineups any time Morant misses action. The problem for Jones is, those absences are few and far between, and Jones doesn't see enough floor time when Morant is active. Jones does remain a rock-solid insurance policy for Morant owners regardless.
