Tyus Jones News
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones has been placed in the league's health and safety protocols, ruling him out indefinitely, beginning with Wednesday's game vs. Milwaukee. The absence will mark just the second of the season for Jones, who has been an invaluable member of the team's second unit (8.2 points, 4.2 assists per game), in addition to stepping into the starting five when Ja Morant went down. De'Anthony Melton -- who was already set to see a larger role with Desmond Bane and Kyle Anderson in the protocols -- is set to back up Morant and take on more offensive duties within the second unit. While Jones has shot a career-best 47.1 percent overall this season, he can remain on the waiver wire in all season-long formats at least until he returns to action.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones (finger) won't play on Monday against Oklahoma City. He was set for a lesser role anyway, with Ja Morant (knee) coming back, and Jones' absence shouldn't affect the team much. The 25-year-old had a decent spell as a starter, but Morant's return gives his fantasy stock a big hit and Jones is now droppable in every league. However, fantasy managers should keep him in mind if Morant picks up another injury.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones (finger) has been listed as questionable to play in Monday's game against the Thunder due to a sprained finger on his right hand. Jones has appeared in every contest thus far in 2021-22, although he has held down starting PG duties since Nov. 28; in that stretch, he has averaged 10.3 points and 6.1 assists on a nightly basis. His fantasy viability is nearing an inflection point, as Ja Morant (knee) has been bumped up to questionable to play as soon as Monday in his own right; with Morant healthy, Jones loses nearly all of his season-long intrigue. DFS managers will want to check back prior to tip-off to see how the Grizzlies' backcourt math will shake out.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones had a productive night against OKC on Thursday, finishing a huge 152-79 blowout win with 10 points, six rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 21 minutes. He had just one turnover while shooting 4-for-7 from the field and 1-for-2 from downtown. Jones has taken over from Ja Morant (knee) as the starting point guard. His numbers have been underwhelming so far, but the 25-year-old has gotten a great opportunity and he'll surely take a lot of confidence from his Thursday's efforts. Jones will roll out next against the Mavericks, who give up the sixth-most assists per 48 minutes to point guards this season.
