Tyus Jones scored a team-high 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-3 3PT) to go with three assists, two rebounds, and a steal in Thursday's blowout win over the Clippers.
Jones didn't need much time to do his damage on Thursday, leading the team in scoring despite playing just 15 minutes off the bench. A hyper-efficient 81.1% clip from the field was his best mark of the season. Jones made some waves in fantasy leagues when Ja Morant was sidelined with an ankle sprain but hasn't contributed much since. Throughout the eight starts for Morant, Jones averaged 9.5 points and 6.9 assists per game. On the season as a whole, however, he's averaging just 7.9 points and 5.0 assists, making him best kept on your league's waiver wire.
Tyus Jones logged 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3PT), eight rebounds, two rebounds, and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Rockets.
With the starters hitting the pine early in a blowout, Jones got some extra minutes and had another great game as a facilitator. Having never averaged more than 4.8 assists per game throughout his first five seasons, Jones is currently averaging 6.1 per game along with a career-high 9.0 points. Most of that is due to him getting starting duties in the wake of Ja Morant's ankle injury. As long as he's playing a bench role he probably isn't worth a roster spot in most leagues.
Tyus Jones recorded 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT), 14 assists, three rebounds, and two steals in Monday's win over the Spurs.
Jones got some unexpected extra minutes with Ja Morant going to the bench early in a blowout. He made for a great short-term fantasy option when Morant was sideline with an injury, but this is the first time he's seen more than 22 minutes or eight assists since he's been relegated back to the bench. Jones is going to continue logging minutes in the high-teens and low-20's so don't go picking him up off the waiver wire quite yet.
Tyus Jones registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, and three steals in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Jones has been starting in place of Ja Morant and playing serviceable ball in his relief. Looking at his season-long numbers is a bit deceiving as he was very limited over the first three games. Since taking the reins as the starter though, Jones is averaging 9.6 points, 6.9 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game.
