  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Pours in 22 points Saturday

    Jones totaled 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 117-116 victory over Oklahoma City in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Jones scored at least 17 points for the third straight game, playing a season-high 40 minutes as the Mavericks took care of business in front of their home fans. Jones' offensive output has been a blessing for the Mavericks, providing them with another viable scoring threat alongside Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. Coming up against either the Nuggets or the Timberwolves in the Western Conference Finals is a daunting task. If Dallas is to pose a serious threat, Jones may need to maintain his offensive momentum.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Steps up offensively in win

    Jones had 19 points (7-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 104-92 win over Oklahoma City in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    The Mavericks needed someone to step up offensively due to P.J. Washington's cold shooting and Kyrie Irving's struggles throughout the series, and Jones embraced that role to deliver a playoff-best scoring mark. Jones has scored in double digits in back-to-back contests, setting him up for having a solid role Saturday in Game 6. He's averaging 9.8 points per game in the current postseason run.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Balanced outing in Game 4 loss

    Jones posted 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 33 minutes during Sunday's 116-111 loss to the Clippers in Game 4 of the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

    Jones responded from a scoreless outing in Game 3 by putting forth one of his best performances of the first-round series Sunday in Dallas' loss against Los Angeles. Although Jones briefly headed to the locker room Sunday, he ended second on the team in rebounds, matching his playoff high thus far, while ending as one of four Mavericks with a double-digit point total. Jones notched his highest scoring total of the series, surpassing the double-digit mark in three of his four postseason outings.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Available to face Clippers

    Jones (shoulder) is not on the official injury report and will be available for Game 1 of the opening-round series against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Jones didn't play in the Mavericks' final game of the regular season because the training staff wanted him to rest a lingering shoulder issue. He shouldn't have any limitations against the Clippers on Sunday. He started his final 19 regular-season appearances and averaged 7.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 steals-plus-blocks in 21.8 minutes per game during that stretch.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Ruled out for Sunday

    Jones won't play Sunday against the Thunder due to a left shoulder sprain.

    Jones' injury appears to be a minor concern, as head coach Jason Kidd had previously made it clear that he would rest most of his rotation players for Sunday's regular-season finale.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Struggles in victory Monday

    Jones produced six points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound and one steal over 18 minutes during Monday's 115-105 win over Utah.

    Despite starting, Jones managed very little in terms of fantasy production. After a brief period in which he was at least on the standard-league radar, Jones has settled back into a mediocre role. As long as the Mavericks are relatively healthy, Jones can be left on waivers for the time being.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Nearly double-doubles

    Jones closed Sunday's 107-105 win over the Nuggets with nine points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist over 24 minutes.

    Jones nearly double-doubled and made the most of his 24 minutes Sunday. Usage isn't easy to come by in Dallas alongside Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, so that explains Jones' inconsistent production.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Moves to starting unit

    Jones is starting against the Heat on Thursday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Jones will move to the starting unit in place of Josh Green. Jones has been a starter through much of the season, but this will be his first start since Feb. 10. He's averaging 9.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and a combined 1.6 steals-plus-blocks when deployed with the first unit.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Good to go Tuesday

    Jones (shoulder) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Pacers.

    Jones has been upgraded from questionable to available despite a left shoulder strain. Jones should serve as one of Dallas' primary backups at the forward position against Indiana.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Questionable for Tuesday

    Jones is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pacers due to a shoulder injury, Eddie Sefko of the Mavericks' official site reports.

    If Jones can't give it a go, that will open up minutes for Josh Green and Tim Hardaway, with the latter offering a bit more upside. We'll have a better idea of Jones' availability for Tuesday night based on his activity level at the team's morning shootaround.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Catches fire from deep

    Jones had 21 points (7-9 FG, 5-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds and one block over 26 minutes during Sunday's 120-116 loss to the 76ers.

    With Dante Exum, Tim Hardaway and Daniel Gafford combining for just three points in 36 cumulative minutes of action, Jones needed to step up, and he did. Despite Sunday's boom, it's tough to trust Jones for offensive production moving forward, as he entered the loss having posted 2-for-7 shooting from deep across five contests since the All-Star break. His offensive usage has shrunk considerably, and his track record does not support the return of a larger role down the stretch.

  • Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Will come off bench Monday

    Jones is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Washington, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Jones will give way to P.J. Washington in the starting lineup. Dallas is set to roll with Washington, Josh Green and Daniel Gafford as the starting frontcourt for the first time.
