Tyus Jones heading to Memphis

Tyus Jones is joining the Grizzlies after the Timberwolves declined to match the three-year, $24 million offer sheet.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was a restricted free agent, and Minnesota declined to match the offer. He will serve as the backup point guard to second overall pick Ja Morant. Jones averaged 6.9 points, 4.8 assists, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.2 steals in 68 games for the Timberwolves last season.

Tyus Jones dishes nine dimes on Saturday

Tyus Jones put in 12 points, nine dimes, three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes of game action on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones continues to be solid for Minnesota to close out the campaign sans their top two point guards. Jones steals and assists numbers make him a reasonable addition to anyone's fantasy team.

Tyus Jones hands out seven dimes on Thursday

Tyus Jones put in 14 points, seven dimes, two steals and two rebounds in 34 minutes of game action on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It looks like Jones will be closing out the regular season with the back-court all to himself as it looks like we've seen the last of Derrick Rose or Jeff Teague this season. As a starter Jones has been solid, putting up 9.9 points, 5.3 dimes, 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 0.9 triples per game over the past couple weeks. His minutes were steadily rising but now that they're in the mid-30s, he's a must-own guy.

Tyus Jones contributes 10 points on Tuesday

Tyus Jones put in 10 points, seven dimes, four rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes of game action on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones has been playing well with all of Minnesota's back-court injuries but not really well enough to warrant getting an add for a fantasy playoff team.

Tyus Jones fails to score a point in loss to Houston

Tyus jones finished with 0 points on 0-of-6 shooting (0-of-3 from deep, 0-of-2 from the charity stripe), and had five assists and four rebounds while logging 29 minutes in Minnesota's 102-117 loss to Houston on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After averaging 13.7 points on 62 percent shooting in his previous three outings, Jones simply couldn't buy a bucket on Sunday night. Minnesota hasn't gotten consistent production out of their backcourt this season, however if Jones continues to start he will definitely have better nights ahead of him.
