    Tyus Jones (knee soreness) will be re-evaluated in one week.

    De’Anthony Melton and Grayson Allen should receive more minutes as a result. Jones averaged 7.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 0.9 steals in 19.0 minutes per contest during the regular season. Jones also shot a career-best 37.9 percent from long range but wasn’t a major factor in fantasy.

    Despite getting out of Minnesota, Tyus Jones was unable to carve out a larger role for himself this season, finishing with top-215 value.

    Jones has always had the profile of someone who could chip in enough assists and steals to crack the top-150, even as a backup, but his minutes were limited with the Wolves. The Grizzlies were supposed to be a better spot for him to get minutes, but Jones actually saw his minutes cut from 22.9 to 19.0 this year. He still averaged 4.4 assists and 1.9 steals (as well as 0.7 triples and a low 0.8 turnovers for a PG) but De'Anthony Melton and his defensive prowess quickly got him above Jones on the depth chart. Jones is still a viable deep-league specialist but failed to capitalize on his new opportunity, limiting his overall fantasy appeal.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks (groin soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Brooks is a top-175 player on the season but is outside the top-325 over the past month. Brooks is averaging 15.3 points with 2.0 threes on .349 shooting over the past month. He can be streamed for points if you don't care about field goal percentage, but it's tough to hold him even in 14-team leagues recently. De'Anthony Melton would be the big winner if Brooks sits out. Josh Jackson and Tyus Jones would likely absorb the rest of Brooks' minutes if he sits out.

    Tyus Jones had a big game on Wednesday, corralling 18 points, six rebounds, six assists and five 3-pointers in just 21 minutes.

    Jones tied his season-high with 15 points on Monday and kept the good times rolling tonight. He's been a fantasy disappointment for the most part since De'Anthony Melton has surpassed him in the rotation, but Jones is still returning 4.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 threes in 18.9 mpg — numbers that make him a reasonable assists specialist and deep-league guard.

    Tyus Jones tied two season-highs vs. the Hawks on Monday with nine assists and four steals in just 19 minutes, adding 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

    Jones can fill it up with steals and assists, but he's stuck behind a franchise player for the foreseeable future. If the Grizzlies find themselves short a point guard, Jones would be a solid pickup in most leagues.

    Tyus Jones made his 18 minutes on the floor count on Thursday, chipping in 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, two 3s and six assists.

    Jones is flying under the radar lately and should be on the radars of managers looking for a quality guard to stream. While he's not averaging 20 minutes per game, his per-36 minute numbers of 13.2 points, 8.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.2 3-pointers per game on .468 shooting from the field should be enough to convince you that he's worth the grab.

    Tyus Jones posted 13 points (6-for-13 shooting), seven assists, two steals, a triple and a rebound across 20 minutes in Friday's loss to the Sixers.

    If you have Jones on our roster it's for complementary steals and assists, which he provided here. He outplayed his teammate De'Anthony Melton in this one, who finished with four points (1-for-9 shooting), five steals, three assists and two rebounds,.

    Tyus Jones did not miss a shot in Wednesday's 121-107 win over the Mavs, going 8-for-8 from the field, 3-of-3 from deep, for 19 points, two rebounds and three assists in only 17 minutes on the floor.

    Jones is someone who doesn't need a lot of time to rack up value, which is a good thing considering he's backing up Ja Morant. Still, Jones is worth owning in 16-teamers for an extra boost in assists, steals at low turnovers (zero tonight).

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton is doubtful to face the Pelicans on Friday as he nurses a sore left hand.

    Melton has been able to provide fringe standard league value despite only averaging 17.9 minutes per game. It appears as if he will miss a third consecutive game on Friday but is definitely someone who can be added across formats in the hopes that his playing time will continue to rise. Tyus Jones could see additional minutes off the bench if Melton sits out.

    De'Anthony Melton (sore left hand) will not be available for Wednesday's game.

    Melton was a late scratch on Tuesday and apparently isn't ready to return. Tyus Jones should see some more opportunities in his stead.

    Tyus Jones was able to collect 11 points, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in Sunday's home win over the Warriors.

    Jones hasn't blossomed despite the change of scenery this year, actually averaging fewer minutes than he did in the guard-heavy Minnesota rotation last season. He remains a solid deep-league source of assists and steals but his sleeper appeal ended up being misplaced. Ja Morant had 11 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists and five turnovers, but we've come to expect much better nights out of the rookie.

  • Tyus Jones

    Tyus Jones led the Grizzlies backcourt on Thursday, shooting 6-for-7 to post 15 points, two assists and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes of action.

    Memphis' bench was great in this one and the starters ended up getting more limited run, which explains Ja Morant's pedestrian 10-5-3 game. De'Anthony Melton also chipped in nine points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals off the pine and is probably the better fantasy option of the two reserves, though Jones has more gas in the tank if you're purely hunting assists. Either way, outside of Morant, the Grizzlies guards are deep-league fantasy players.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton scored 11 points on Saturday with four assists and two steals in 15 minutes.

    Melton is inside the top-125 in the month of December and is worth owning in deep leagues but is hard to trust in standard leagues as he has failed to crack 20 minutes in the past three games. Tyus Jones had almost an identical line on Saturday with 12 points, four assists and two steals in 18 minutes, and both players can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues as long as they split minutes.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant returned from a night off for rest on Saturday and looked fresh as he tallied 18 points (5-of-11 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), four rebounds, five dimes, one 3-pointer, two steals and one blocked shot.

    Morant is the real deal and is slowly but surely adapting well to professional play. His arrow is pointing up and we all could just be looking at the tip of his value iceberg so far this season. Tyus Jones returned to the bench but managed to stay productive with nine points, nine assists one trey and two steals in 21 minutes. Jones is worth a hold in 14-team leagues or deeper.

    Tyus Jones will start in the place of Ja Morant on Friday for the game against the Bucks.

    The minutes are available with Ja Morant and Grayson Allen absent so it is possible Jones puts up a big line if he gets off to a hot start. It's probably more likely De'Anthony Melton takes advantage though.
