Top Herbert Jones News

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: All-around showing in victory

    Jones provided 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and five steals over 35 minutes during Monday's 96-87 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Jones led all Pelicans players in scoring and steals while connecting on a team-high-tying trio of threes and ending one rebound short of a double-double in a well-rounded performance. Jones has hauled in nine or more rebounds in two games this season, while his five steals tied a season high. He has recorded at least 15 points and five boards in seven outings this year.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Posts 14 points in victory

    Jones finished with 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists and three steals over 37 minutes during Saturday's 93-84 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Jones' shot was on point despite the low total from the team, as the Alabama product missed just one of his seven shot attempts. Despite a firm grasp on the first-unit job, Jones' totals tend to fluctuate widely, making him an undesirable fantasy option. He's exceeded 20 points only twice this season and fails to produce significant secondary numbers.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Quiet in return

    Jones (adductor) supplied seven points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 22 minutes during Monday's 138-100 win over the Raptors.

    Due to the Pelicans' big margin of victory, Jones was eased back in from a two-game absence due to a sore adductor with a lighter workload than usual. The third-year forward is connecting at a career-best 39.2 percent of his three-point attempts this season to raise his offensive floor, but for fantasy purposes, he continues to bring most of his value in the two defensive categories.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Back in action Monday

    Jones (groin) will play Monday versus Toronto, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Jones returns from a two-game absence that was due to right adductor soreness. He is joined by Zion Williamson (foot) and Larry Nance (ankle) in being cleared to play, bringing the Pelicans to full strength Monday.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Shapes up as game-time call

    Jones (adductor) remains listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Raptors, and a decision on his status will be made following warmups in advance of the 8 p.m. ET tipoff, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Jones was a full participant in Friday's practice and was on the court for Monday's morning shootaround, so he appears likelier than not to suit up Monday. The third-year forward has missed the Pelicans' last two games with right adductor soreness, which has allowed Trey Murphy to pick up a pair of starts.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Iffy for Monday

    Jones (adductor) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Raptors.

    Jones is at risk of missing his third consecutive game due to a sore right adductor. On a positive note, Jones was able to log a full practice Sunday, so even if he's unavailable Monday, he appears to be trending in the right direction.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Logs full practice Sunday

    Jones (adductor) was a full participant during Sunday's practice, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Jones missed the last two games due to a sore right adductor, but he's trending in the right direction ahead of Monday's matchup versus Toronto. His status for the game should be revealed when New Orleans posts its injury report later Sunday.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Won't play Friday

    Jones (thigh) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Spurs, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones continues to deal with a sore right adductor and will be unavailable for a second consecutive matchup. He'll have a few days to rest before the Pelicans face the Raptors on Monday. Trey Murphy and Naji Marshall could see increased run Friday.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Partially participates in practice

    Jones (thigh) participated in portions of Thursday's practice session, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jones was unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, but it's encouraging that he was at least able to partially participate in practice a day later. However, it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Friday's game against the Spurs. If Jones and/or Zion Williamson (foot) are sidelined again, Naji Marshall and Jonas Valanciunas should see increased run for the Pelicans.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Questionable versus San Antonio

    Jones (thigh) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Spurs.

    Jones is in danger of missing his second straight contest Friday due to right thigh soreness. With Zion Williamson (foot) and Larry Nance (ankle) questionable, Trey Murphy and Naji Marshall could receive a hefty boost in minutes.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Downgraded to out

    Jones (thigh) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jones and Zion Williamson (foot) have both been ruled out, so Trey Murphy, Dyson Daniels, Jordan Hawkins and Naji Marshall are all candidates for increased roles. This is Jones' first absence since Nov. 12, but he can be considered day-to-day moving forward, with Friday's matchup in San Antonio marking his next chance to suit up.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Questionable for Wednesday

    Jones is questionable to play Wednesday versus Houston due to right adductor soreness.

    Jones hasn't missed a game since Nov. 12, but if he's unable to suit up Wednesday, all of Trey Murphy, Naji Marshall and Jordan Hawkins could be in store for expanded roles.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Drops 22 points in victory

    Jones accumulated 22 points (8-9 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 153-124 win over the Jazz.

    Jones has largely struggled in recent weeks, but he turned things around with an efficient performance in Tuesday's blowout win. While his performance against the Jazz was encouraging, he'll need to turn in a few more strong stat lines before fully regaining the trust of fantasy managers.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Midseason struggles continue

    Jones ended Friday's 123-109 loss to Phoenix with nine points (4-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes.

    Jones continues to struggle on both ends of the floor, failing to record a steal for the fourth time in the past five games. After his strong start to the season, Jones' production has fallen off a cliff over the past month, and he's averaged just 9.8 points per game to go with 2.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 combined steals and blocks. At this point, he should be viewed as nothing more than a category-league specialist, albeit one who often struggles in his preferred category.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Struggles continue in loss

    Jones finished with eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block across 19 minutes during Friday's 125-113 loss to the Nuggets.

    Jones ended Friday with another passive performance, continuing his recent struggles. After a hot start to the season, Jones has been unable to maintain his momentum, sitting well outside the top 150 in standard leagues over the past month. Despite the defensive upside, Jones should be viewed as nothing more than a steals specialist at this point, making him expendable in some 12-team leagues.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Drains four threes in rout

    Jones logged 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal across 23 minutes during Wednesday's 141-105 win over the Warriors.

    Every one of Jones' seven shots Wednesday came from beyond the arc, and he efficiently made four. That tied the season-high total that he established three games prior versus Minnesota. Jones is averaging a career-best 1.3 triples per contest this season, though his strongest skill remains his defense. After picking up two blocks and one steal Wednesday, he's averaging 1.3 thefts and 1.0 swats on the season.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Night to forget Tuesday

    Jones recorded four points (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 116-115 overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

    Jones was disappointing again Tuesday, scoring fewer than eight points for the seventh time in the past eight games. While the scoring has been a real issue, his lack of production on the defensive end is perhaps the bigger concern. Over the eight-game span, he has recorded a total of just five steals and two blocks. For a player whose fantasy value is built on defensive numbers, the recent trend is not what managers want to be seeing. He falls mainly into the specialist category for now, meaning he can be dropped in standard leagues.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Will play Thursday

    Jones (illness) is available to face the Cavaliers on Thursday.

    The Pelicans will be shorthanded in the frontcourt, but having Jones available should provide quite a boost on both sides of the ball, particularly due to his ability to defend multiple positions. Jones has started in each of his 25 appearances this season, averaging 11.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game, and that figures to be the case again Thursday.
