  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones, who is expected to practice on Thursday, says that he won't have restrictions once he's back, which could be on Friday vs. the Knicks.

    Jones' return is something to watch especially by managers in deep leagues. He's been known to be a viable stream target for steals. That said, as long as Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose are healthy, Jones is not an option in standard leagues.

    Tyus Jones is expected to practice today and all signs point to him being available on Friday against the Knicks.

    A bad ankle sprain has forced Jones to miss the last 13 games but he is reportedly close to a return. He should jump right back into his backup role but with Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose healthy it’s unclear how much value he will be able to generate for the rest of the season. Wolves in the meantime will likely move on from Isaiah Canaan.

    In an article on The Athletic, Jon Krawczynski noted that Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) should be returning in the Wolves' first game after the All-Star break.

    The Wolves return to action on Friday at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks. Krawczynski also noted that Robert Covington (knee) should not be far behind Jones' return, which will give the Wolves much-needed depth as they make a playoff run.

    Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Jones has been doubtful heading into the last two games and will miss both. Hopefully he'll be able to play coming out of the All-Star break, though with Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose both back in the lineup there's no impact on fantasy leagues.

    Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) is listed as doubtful ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Jones is being listed as doubtful for the second straight game. He's progressing towards a return, but with Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose back on the floor there's no implications for fantasy.

    Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out on Monday.

    Jones was upgraded to doubtful for this game but it still seems improbable that we see him back on the floor before the All-Star break. With Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose both back, Jones only has deep-league and handcuff appeal.

    Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) was able to through non-contact portions of Sunday's practice and has been upgraded to doubtful ahead of Monday's game.

    The Wolves haven't given many updates on Jones' condition since he sustained the injury back on January 15. Jones is unlikely to hold standard-league value since both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rrose figure to be back in action when he returns, but he'll be a potential add if either of those two sustain further injuries.

    While there is no timetable for the return of Tyus Jones, the Wolves have said that he is only dealing with a regular sprain of his left ankle and not a high sprain.

    Jones was reported to be in a walking boot for the next several days, so we'll have a better idea of a return date once he sheds that boot. In the meantime it'll be Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose soaking up all the point guard minutes so there isn't much change to the fantasy landscape. Perhaps Dario Saric becomes more of a facilitator in the second unit, but that's really the only fantasy-relevant wrinkle to look for.

    As per Adrian Wojnarowski, Tyus Jones will be wearing a walking boot for the next several days and will be day-to-day after that.

    Jones has been a good steals specialist for streaming purposes but with Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague now both healthy, there's little need to hang onto him considering he's set to miss multiple games.

    Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reported that Tyus Jones has a high left ankle sprain.

    X-rays taken were negative and that's definitely a week-to-week injury and could easily be a month or more. It looked really bad when it happened. Now the Wolves are really shallow in the backcourt so look for Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose and Josh Okogie to get all they can eat, while Jerryd Bayless might get dusted off and play nominal minutes. Somebody like Dario Saric might be needed to run more offense, too.

    Tyus Jones (left ankle) was helped off to the locker room on Wednesday.

    Jones landed awkwardly on his left foot and immediately went down in a lot of pain. He appeared seriously injured and is not expected to return to the game. Jones couldn't put weight on his foot, signaling a possible sprain. Stay tuned.

    Tyus Jones logged 28 minutes in Saturday's home win, collecting 14 points, six assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.

    Jones continues to hang onto standard-league appeal, taking advantage of Derrick Rose's rest day tonight and getting another lifeline with Jeff Teague re-injuring his left ankle tonight. If you were waiting on the wheels to fall totally off to make a drop, it's your lucky day. Jones is worth an add in just about all leagues with Teague likely set to miss some time.

    Tyus Jones scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with one rebound and four assists in 24 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Thunder.

    If you were wondering if the new coach bounce would unlock things for Jones the answer was not really. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues as a change of guard could result in greater opportunity.

    Tyus Jones moved back to the bench on Friday night with Jeff Teague back in action, logging 20 minutes and posting five points, two rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer.

    The drop-off was predictable and Jones will get hit even harder when Derrick Rose (sprained right ankle) returns, which could be in the coming days. It was a fun ride but Jones can be cut loose in most leagues.

    Tyus Jones saw 40 minutes on Wednesday and scored 14 points with nine assists and four steals in a loss to the Celtics.

    He is a great stream while both Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague are out, but he is virtually invisible when one of them plays. Once the ability to stream him at top-50 value while they are out ends, he can be sent right back to the wire.
