Derrick Jones Jr.

Fantasy News

  • Derrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. had 13 points, four rebounds and a couple missed dunks that were still impressive in Wednesday's season finale vs. the Nets.

    Airplane Mode made a bit of a breakthrough this season, as he had stretches of fantasy relevance, but he still ranked in just the 250-range. The 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks in just 19.2 mpg are his potential ticket to fantasy value.

    The Heat are listing Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee bone bruise) as available for Friday's game against the Wolves.

    This is a great development for Jones and the Heat, as they need help without Josh Richardson. Jones has the chance to start on Friday and play a significant role for the remainder of the season. He makes for an intriguing cheap DFS play tonight and a name to keep an eye on in the waiver wire for his ability to get defensive stats.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee bone bruise) is questionable play the Wolves on Friday.

    The Heat have a need for Jones to return with Josh Richardson going down for the next few weeks. If Jones can play, he'll take some minutes away from the rest of the guard/wing rotation. Jones is an option in deeper leagues.

    The Heat are listing Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee bone bruise) as out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    The Heat's wing rotation is in flux at the moment with Jones out and Josh Richardson, Rodney McGruder and Justise Winslow all questionable. We will have to wait to see who is ultimately ruled in and out to determie the full fantasy implications but Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade and Dion Waiters will continue to see ample time with Duncan Robinson sprinkled in if the above can't go.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee) exited Monday's game and will not return.

    Jones had just one point, two rebounds and a block in 17 minutes. James Johnson started the second half in his place. The Heat should provide an update after the game on the severity of the injury.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (personal) has rejoined the Heat and will be available for Monday's matchup with the Celtics.

    Jones missed morning shootaround but was expected to play in this one, and the fact that he's back with the team means he should be good to go. Give DJJ a look if you need steals, blocks and some threes.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (personal) is expected to play on Monday vs. the Celtics.

    He wasn't at the shootaround for Monday's game but he's expected to join the Heat later in the day. The Heat are involved in a tight race for the last three spots in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Right now they're the eighth seed one game behind the sixth-seeded Pistons and half a game behind the seventh-seeded Nets. They need to win all the games that they can and having DJJ back will certainly help them do that.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (personal) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Celtics.

    We hope all is well with Jones. If he is unable to go in this one, the Heat will be very short-handed as they will also be missing Rodney McGruder, Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow.

    Derrick Jones Jr. scored four points while adding four rebounds, two assists and four steals on Saturday against the Knicks.

    Jones played more minutes than usual since Josh Richardson and Justice Winslow are out and it's nice to see to him racking up those steals count. He's a streaming option at best for defensive stats so feel free to pick him up if you are catching up on some steals and blocks.

    Derrick Jones Jr. (personal) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

    The Heat are down multiple bodies which means Jones could play more than his usual allotted minutes, but even when he starts the production isn't really anything to chase after.

    Derrick Jones (personal) missed shootaround but is expected to play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Jones started the last seven games for the Heat with an average of 7.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.7 steals 1.0 blocks and 0.6 triples over that span while playing 22.7 minutes. He has high upside for defensive stats but is a risky play given the low minutes, which have not gone up as much as expected with Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson both sidelined.

  • Derrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. scored eight points on 4-of-11 shooting while adding a rebound and two steals on Monday.

    Jones Jr. started again in place of Justise Winslow (right thigh), but he couldn't produce in his 17 minutes of action. We love the highlight plays from Airplane Mode, but he's not a reliable fantasy asset, especially with the Heat loaded on the wings.

    Derrick Jones Jr. will start again on Monday night vs. the Thunder.

    Last night, also with Justise Winslow out, Jones contributed a little bit of everything, as he tends to do. If you needs some peripheral stats, he makes a good upside start tonight.

    Derrick Jones Jr. started for Justise Winslow (right thigh) on Sunday and was able to collect six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes of action.

    We've been big fans of Jones' game for a while now, and unfortunately Miami's rotation is just too crowded for him to see consistent minutes. If that changes he'd be a great add but until there's a reliable 20 mpg headed his way, DJJ is only a deep-league target and stream when other Heat are out.

  • Derrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. delivered 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, two triples and one block in 26 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

    DJJ was not a factor in fantasy lately but is worth keeping an eye on. He's got multi-cat upside but will be battling a crowded Heat wing rotation for minutes.
