  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Struggles in relief

    Jones contributed three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes during Friday's 111-102 loss to Minnesota.

    Jones' poor performance opposite Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns highlights LA's current depth concerns at the center position. Anthony Davis (back) will be prone to numerous rest days throughout the season, so a solid backup is crucial to the team. The Lakers may find the answer in Thomas Bryant (thumb), who is scheduled to return within the next two weeks.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Starting Friday

    Jones will start Friday's contest against Minnesota, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones practiced with the first unit during shootaround and will get the start with Anthony Davis (back) ruled out. Across three appearances, the veteran big man has totaled 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 25 minutes. He figures to see an increased role Friday, but he's unlikely to be a prolific producer.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Practicing with first unit Friday

    Jones was spotted practicing with the Lakers' starting unit at Friday's shootaround, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    With Anthony Davis (back) considered a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with Minnesota, it appears the Lakers are prepared to start Jones at the five spot if Davis is ultimately unable to go. If Davis ends up being cleared to play, the Lakers could potentially limit his workload, so Jones is a candidate to see increased run against the Timberwolves either way.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Sees season-high 12 minutes

    Jones ended with four points (1-2 FG, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and one block across 12 minutes during Wednesday's 110-99 loss to Denver.

    Jones finished the contest with his largest workload of the campaign, albeit in a game the Lakers trailed by 15 entering the fourth quarter after being tied at halftime. Jones sits as the team's current backup center on a Lakers team lacking size, though the eventual return of Thomas Bryant (thumb) could change things.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Removed from starting lineup

    Jones won't start Tuesday's season opener versus the Warriors, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Jones started but only played 17 minutes in the Lakers' preseason finale last Friday. With Anthony Davis starting at center, Jones will resume his role as the team's backup big man. However, we have seen in the past that Davis is not fond of starting full-time at center, so Jones could see some spot starts when the Lakers go big.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: In starting lineup

    Jones is starting at center in Friday's preseason game against the Kings, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    It is unclear what type of workload Jones will see once the regular season tips off, but he should see healthy minutes in Friday's exhibtion contest. He is competing with Thomas Bryant for center minutes in the Lakers' rotation.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Moves to bench

    Jones will come off the bench for Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Jones got the start in Monday's exhibition loss to the Kings, but he'll shift to a reserve role Wednesday as the Lakers experiment with a small-ball lineup. Kendrick Nunn will also head to the bench as Patrick Beverley and Austin Reaves join Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis as the starters.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Joining Lakers

    Jones and the Lakers agreed Thursday to a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The second year is a player option.

    Jones has proven to be a solid backup center. He's coming off a career year with the Kings, where he averaged 8.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.2 minutes. His role for next season will partially depend on whether Dwight Howard returns.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Stellar play continues

    Jones finished Tuesday's 123-109 loss to New Orleans with 22 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes.

    Jones continues to post monster numbers amid Domantas Sabonis' (knee) absence. With Alex Len (back) and Richaun Holmes (personal) also out, Damian has free rein in the paint. He's taken full advantage, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocked shots over seven starts.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Records monster double-double

    Jones provided 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 FT), 17 rebounds, two assists and six blocks over 31 minutes during Friday's 122-117 win over the Rockets.

    Jones has been excellent since moving to the starting lineup five games ago and has scored in double digits in each one of those contests, but this one might go down as one of the best performances of his career. Aside from recording a career-best figure in both rebounds and blocks, he also missed just two shots from the field. The big man is now averaging 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game since moving to the starting unit with Richaun Holmes (personal) sidelined.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Fills stat sheet in win

    Jones posted 24 points (9-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-9 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, four blocks and one steal over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-118 win over the Rockets.

    Jones was efficient from a shooting perspective but did more than just scoring, as he ended just one rebound away from a double-double and also accounted for stats across the board. The veteran big man has started each of Sacramento's last four games and has thrived, putting up 12 or more points in each of those contests while pulling down six or more boards in three of those appearances.

  • Kings' Damian Jones: Offers efficient scoring in loss

    Jones posted 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes in Monday's 123-100 loss to the Heat.

    Making his third consecutive start in place of Domantas Sabonis (knee), Jones turned in his usual efficient scoring, but his stat line was fairly hollow beyond that. Though his upside isn't especially high, Jones' role looks secure the rest of the way, as Sabonis will miss at least the next two games and is probably trending toward sitting out the remainder of the season, given that the Kings face long odds to earn a spot in the play-in tournament.
