Top Tyus Jones News

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Returns to bench

    Jones isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Kings, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Jones will move back to the bench as Ja Morant will return to the starting lineup after missing Sunday's game with an ankle injury. Jones will likely move back to his backup point guard role.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Serviceable in starting role

    Jones racked up 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds and six assists over 34 minutes during Sunday's 127-115 loss to the Nets.

    Jones shifted into the starting lineup as a result of an ankle injury to Ja Morant, doing just enough to keep managers happy. As we have seen in the past, Jones becomes a must-add player whenever Morant is sidelined. He should be a steady source of assists and steals, with a few points thrown in for good measure. He's certainly worth adding in most leagues where he's available.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: In line to start with Morant out

    Jones is expected to take over as the starting point for the Grizzlies during the absence of Ja Morant (ankle), who will be re-evaluated weekly.

    Jones is essentially a must-roster player in 12-team fantasy formats for as long as Morant is shelved. He's played well as a starter this year, and in 23 starts last season, he averaged 12.7 points, 6.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 30.2 minutes. Desmond Bane (toe) is also out for at least another week-plus, which should force more usage Jones' way.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Could replace injured Morant

    Jones finished Friday's 121-110 win over the Thunder with 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one block across 23 minutes.

    Jones' line was solid enough, but he could have the opportunity to turn in even more fantasy-friendly performances if the ankle injury Ja Morant suffered late in Friday's game forces him to miss time. The Grizzlies won't have an official update on Morant until evaluating him Saturday, but fantasy managers looking for a boost in the assists category in particular may want to take an early flier on Jones.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting Sunday

    Jones will start Sunday's matchup against Washington in the absence of Ja Morant (ankle), Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    Jones will draw his second start of the campaign with Morant sidelined. In his last start (Oct. 29 loss to Utah), Jones notched season highs in points (23), assists (10) and minutes (33).

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Reaches double figures off bench

    Jones recorded 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound and three assists over 20 minutes during Wednesday's 124-122 overtime win over San Antonio.

    Jones led all Memphis bench players in scoring while surpassing the double-digit mark in just 20 minutes. Jones has scored 10 or more points eight times this season, recording his first such game since Nov. 4 against Charlotte.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Solid output off bench Monday

    Jones registered 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Monday's 121-105 loss to the Jazz.

    Jones moved back to the bench with Ja Morant (illness) returning to the starting lineup, and he delivered another excellent outing in a role he's absolutely comfortable in. Despite being nothing more than a bench option when the Grizzlies are at full strength, the former Timberwolves guard has scored in double digits in all but one of his seven appearances and is averaging 13.3 points, 4.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds per contest to date.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Thrives in starting role

    Jones had 23 points (10-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), one rebound, 10 assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 124-123 loss to the Jazz.

    Jones logged his first double-double of the season, stepping into the starting lineup for Ja Morant, who was ruled out with an illness. As he usually does in situations such as this, Jones put up big numbers on both ends of the floor. The equation here is quite simple, really. If and when Morant is unavailable, make sure Jones is on your roster. At all other times, he is more of a deeper-league commodity.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Starting in Morant's absence

    Jones will start Saturday's game against the Jazz, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

    With Ja Morant (illness) missing his first game of the season, Jones will start. In 23 starts last season, he averaged 12.7 points, 6.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 30.2 minutes.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Modest production in win

    Jones ended Monday's 134-124 victory over the Nets with eight points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes.

    Jones failed to score in double figures for the first time this season and logged a season-low one assist during the win. While the backup point guard's performance Monday was lackluster, he's still averaging 11.0 points, 3.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 23.8 minutes across the first four games of the season.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Comes up big off bench

    Jones registered 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 115-112 overtime victory over the Knicks.

    His final bucket was the biggest, as Jones drained the game-winning three-pointer with under a minute left in extra time. The veteran point guard remains entrenched on Memphis' second unit behind Ja Morant, but Jones set career highs in that role last season with 8.7 points and 1.1 threes per game while shooting 39.0 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Not playing against Bucks

    Jones (rest) won't be available for Saturday's preseason game against the Bucks, according to Eric Nehm of The Athletic.

    Jones is widely seen as one of the best backup point guards in the league, and there's no sense for the Grizzlies to risk him in a preseason game. It seems this is only a matter of the team keeping a cautious approach not only with Jones, but with the rest of the core starters and bench players as well.

  • Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Returning to Grizzlies

    Jones and the Grizzlies agreed Thursday to a two-year, $30 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Jones has proven to be crucial as a backup to Ja Morant, and the two can share the court when needed. Last season, he saw 21.2 minutes per game and had a career year with 8.7 points, 4.4 assists and 2.4 rebounds with shooting splits of 45/39/82. He should hold a similar role next season.
