Top Damian Jones News

  • Cavaliers' Damian Jones: Dealt to Cleveland

    The Jazz traded Jones to the Cavaliers on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    It appears that Utah is simply dumping Jones' salary, but the return package has yet to be released. He averaged 3.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in 11.6 minutes across 41 games for the Jazz and Lakers in 2022-23. Jones will likely compete with Robin Lopez for the backup center role next season.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Exercises player option for 2023-24

    Jones exercised his $2.58 million player option for the 2023-24 season Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Jones split time with the Lakers and Jazz last year but never carved out a substantial role with either team. He played at least 20 minutes just nine times, posting 7.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 0.9 blocks during those contests, and had one double-double across 41 appearances (one start). Walker Kessler and Udoka Azubuike will be Utah's top two centers next year, but Jones figures to be a capable depth option.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Strong production off bench

    Jones chipped in 16 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 135-133 overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Udoka Azubuike drew the start with Walker Kessler (concussion) out, but Jones, who came off the bench, played 11 more minutes than Azubuike and significantly outproduced him. Kessler has already been ruled out for the season, so Azubuike and Jones should continue to see increased opportunities, though it appears Jones has emerged as the frontrunner for elevated playing time with his strong performance Tuesday.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Plays two minutes in defeat

    Jones registered one rebound in two minutes during Wednesday's 127-115 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Jones played double-digit minutes off the bench during his first six appearances in March, but he wasn't able to do much with his increased playing time. His minutes have dropped in recent matchups, and he's fallen out of Utah's rotation over the last two games. As long as the Jazz remain relatively healthy in the frontcourt, it seems unlikely Jones will have much of an impact down the stretch.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Available Saturday

    Jones (recently traded) will suit up for Saturday's game against the Knicks, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

    Jones was acquired by Utah on Wednesday in a three-team trade but missed Friday's game, with the trade yet to have been made official. However, he has been given the green light for Saturday's tilt. It's unclear where Jones will fit into a relatively crowded frontcourt, as he will likely have to battle Udoka Azubuike and Kelly Olynyk for backup center minutes behind Walker Kessler.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Sitting Friday

    Jones is out for Friday's game versus the Raptors due to his pending trade, Ben Anderson of KSL News Salt Lake City reports.

    Jones was dealt from the Lakers to the Jazz on Wednesday in a three-team deal that included Minnesota. However, he will have to wait until at least Saturday's matchup with the Knicks to make his Jazz debut.

  • Jazz's Damian Jones: Headed to Utah

    The Jazz acquired Jones from the Lakers on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal that also involved the Timberwolves, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Jones will head to Utah along with Russell Westbrook, Juan Toscano-Anderson and a top-four protected 2027 first-round pick, while the Lakers take back D'Angelo Russell, Jarred Vanderbilt and Malik Beasley. Meanwhile, Minnesota receive Mike Conley, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and second-round picks in 2024, 2025 and 2026. In his new locale, Jones will likely be battling Udoka Azubuike for the limited reserve minutes behind starting center Walker Kessler, so Jones' fantasy value will likely remain negligible with the move to Utah.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Available Saturday

    Jones (toe) is available for Saturday's game against the Kings, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Jones hasn't been a part of the rotation since Christmas Day. It seems unlikely that he'll see the floor Saturday.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Likely to play against Sacramento

    Jones (toe) is probable for Saturday's game versus the Kings, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Jones is expected to play Saturday after missing the previous game with a toe injury. However, he hadn't played in the five games before that due to a coach's decision, so he is unlikely to impact the Lakers' rotation.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Won't play Friday

    Jones (toe) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup against the Hawks, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Jones was downgraded from questionable to out due to right big toe soreness. He hasn't been a part of the rotation recently despite Anthony Davis (foot) being sidelined, so Jones' absence Friday shouldn't have a major impact.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Iffy for Friday

    Jones is listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Hawks due to right great toe soreness, Dave McMenamin of reports.

    Jones has been out of the rotation for the past five contests despite Anthony Davis (foot) being sidelined. Regardless of whether or not he is active, there should be very little change in the Lakers' rotation.

  • Lakers' Damian Jones: Rare source of scoring

    Jones amassed 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 126-113 loss to Toronto.

    Jones scored in double figures for the first time since Nov. 7, and he's struggled to log consistent playing time throughout the 2022-23 campaign. He's averaging 9.1 minutes over his first 13 games of the year. The Vanderbilt product will likely return to his limited role in the rotation once LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (illness) return to action.
