  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Bounces back in steals column

    Jones recorded 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, four rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 120-109 loss to the Warriors. Jones is rostered in fantasy leagues primarily for his contributions in the steals department, and after coming up empty in the category in Monday's blowout win over Portland, he was able to get back on track in the second leg of the back-to-back set. The second-year forward supplemented the steals total with solid production in the rebounds, assists and three-pointers, but he can't be relied upon to produce in all of those areas on a regular basis. He had turned in more modest averages of 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 0.3 treys in his prior six contests.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Falls flat Thursday

    Jones chipped in two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Thursday's 115-96 win over Charlotte. Jones, who's been an inconsistent producer all season, failed to make an offensive impact for a second straight game. However, his defensive abilities have still been on full display recently, as he's notched at least one steal in 11 of his past 12 matchups. During that stretch, he's averaged 9.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 30.8 minutes with 50/34/70 shooting splits.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Scores 20 points Tuesday

    Jones finished with 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 loss to the Lakers. Jones reached the 20-point mark for the first time since Jan. 31 and delivered a solid outing on both ends of the court in the loss. Firmly entrenched as a starter in a struggling Pelicans team, Jones has scored in double digits in four of his last five games, but fantasy players should continue to value him mainly for his contributions in the steals category.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Playing time recovers Sunday

    Jones finished Sunday's 127-110 win over the Trail Blazers with 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes. After foul trouble limited him to just 18 minutes one night earlier in a 110-96 loss to the Thunder, Jones saw his playing time and production pick back up Sunday in a major way. Jones has now eclipsed 30 minutes in six of his last seven games, and the numbers he's provided over that stretch (10.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.0 three-pointers and 0.6 blocks per contest) have been solid enough to make him an appealing back-end roster piece in 12-team category leagues.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Making impact in elevated minutes

    Jones finished Wednesday's 113-106 win over the Mavericks with 14 points (6-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 37 minutes. For the third game in a row, Jones cleared 35 minutes, and while the poor efficiency from the field took some of the luster away from his stat line, he still contributed in every major fantasy category save for three-pointers. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect anything more than low-end scoring production from Jones, but if he's going to continue receiving heavy minutes like he has so far in March, he should remain a premium source for steals. He's now notched at least one steal in 15 of his last 16 games, averaging 1.9 per contest during that stretch.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Teases triple-double in loss

    Jones posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, eight assists, one block and one steal over 37 minutes during Monday's 123-108 loss to Sacramento. Jones did a little of everything Monday, supplementing his 13 points with a team-leading eight assists while finishing second on the Pelicans with eight boards. The assist total tied a career-high mark, and the rebound total was his fourth-highest of the campaign. Jones' strength is typically his defense, and he chipped in there too, notching both a block and a steal. He typically won't score this much -- prior to Monday, Jones hadn't scored more than 11 points since Jan. 31 -- and he's really only rosterable in fantasy for his ability to post valuable defensive stats.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Minutes pick back up

    Jones played 33 minutes and finished with 10 points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Monday's 101-93 loss to the Magic. Despite not battling foul trouble in the Pelicans' previous game Saturday against the Knicks, Jones played just 13 minutes in that contest after New Orleans fell into an early first-quarter hole. Fortunately for Jones' fantasy investors, the suppressed minutes weren't the start of a trend, as he returned to his usual level of playing time Monday and delivered in the two defensive categories. Given that Jones is typically a below-average contributor in every other category, it's critical that he continues to receive heavy minutes so that he can produce consistent returns in steals and blocks.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Struggles again in loss

    Jones had six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists over 13 minutes during Saturday's 128-106 loss to the Knicks. Jones was terrible once again Saturday, continuing what has been a frustrating period for fantasy managers. Although he is just outside the top 100 for the season, his only positive category is steals. The Pelicans have lost four of their past five games and to say it hasn't been pretty is putting it nicely. While Jones will almost certainly be better than this, the fact remains he is buried when it comes to the offensive pecking order. If steals are not high on your list of priorities, Jones can be left for someone else to deal with.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Records five assists

    Jones closed Wednesday's 120-102 loss to the Lakers with 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and one steal across 30 minutes. Jones' offense comes and goes, but he has scored in double digits in three of his last four games. As for his defense, Jones has been elite with an average of 2.3 steals and 0.6 blocks per game over his last nine contests. His minutes will remain high for the foreseeable future with Zion Williamson (hamstring) suffering a setback.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Fills up box score in win

    Jones finished with 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 116-107 win over the Hawks. Jones narrowly ended a streak of three straight single-digit scoring performances, but fantasy managers aren't counting on him for much production on the offensive end anyway. Instead, managers roster Jones mainly for his contributions on the defensive categories, and he came through in both the steals and blocks departments Tuesday while also chipping in more boards than usual. With 33-plus minutes in five straight games, Jones looks to have moved into an even larger role than he held earlier this season, and he could be poised to maintain this level of playing time through the All-Star break while Zion Williamson (hamstring) remains sidelined.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Posts one of best games Tuesday

    Jones notched 21 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five steals, four rebounds and four assists across 37 minutes during Tuesday's 122-113 loss to Denver. The efficient 21 points were a new season high for Jones, while the five steals matched his previous best output in the category, making Tuesday's effort one of the best of Jones' career. Fantasy managers will take whatever offensive production they can get from Jones as a bonus, as the second-year forward is rostered primarily for his ability to contribute in both defensive categories. Though his production in both steals and blocks are slightly down from his rookie campaign, Jones' averages of 1.6 and 0.7 per game in those respective categories still make him a positive contributor overall.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Modest results in defeat

    Jones closed Wednesday's 111-102 loss to the Timberwolves with four points (2-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes. Jones was inefficient from the floor Wednesday and was held to a single-digit scoring total for a second consecutive matchup while also failing to record a steal or a block in a game for the first time since Dec. 17. He's been inefficient over his four appearances since returning to the court, averaging 7.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 steals in 24.8 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Limited to 19 minutes in return

    Jones (back) logged 10 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three assists, two steals, one rebound and one block across 19 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 123-110 loss to Orlando. Jones slid straight back into the starting lineup Friday but was on a minutes restriction. Considering he had missed the previous four games with a back injury, the minutes limit wasn't unexpected, but he should settle back into a regular 30-minute role after another game or two. While his overall value is capped in points leagues due to a lack of scoring prowess, his defensive contributions should earn him a roster spot in most 12-team category leagues.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Starting despite restrictions

    Jones (back) will start Friday's game against the Magic, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Jones will receive the starting nod Friday despite having his minutes monitored for the contest. It's unclear what Jones' minutes cap is for the tilt, but he should still be started in season-long category formats with Brandon Ingram (toe) and Zion Williamson (hamstring) absent.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Good to go Friday

    Jones (back) will play in Friday's game against the Magic, Andrew Lopez of reports. Jones will return from a four-game leave due to a back contusion and should be in line for an increased offensive role with Brandon Ingram (toe) and Zion Williamson (hamstring) sidelined. His return will likely spell fewer minutes for Dyson Daniels and Garrett Temple, though Jones' minutes will be monitored Friday, per Jennifer Hale of Bally Sports New Orleans.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Questionable Friday

    Jones (back) is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports. Jones has missed the last four games due to a back contusion but seems to be making some progress in his recovery, as he's questionable for Friday's game after being listed as doubtful ahead of recent matchups. If Jones is unavailable against the Magic, Dyson Daniels will likely continue to start for New Orleans.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Ruled out against Miami

    Jones (back) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Heat, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Jones will miss his fourth straight game after being downgraded from doubtful to out Wednesday with a back contusion. Dyson Daniels should continue to start in his absence. Jones' next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Orlando.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Nabs doubtful tag for Wednesday

    Jones (back) is considered doubtful to take the floor Wednesday versus the Heat, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Jones was listed questionable ahead of Monday's contest before sitting out, so the initial doubtful status for Wednesday marks an overall downgrade of his status. There's no information suggesting Jones has suffered a setback, so it's still best to monitor his health on a game-by-game basis. Dyson Daniels seems likely to draw another start assuming Jones can't give it a go, as the injury report suggests is likely the case.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Remains out Monday

    Jones (back) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Andrew Lopez of reports. Jones, who was initially listed as questionable, will miss a third straight game due to a back contusion. Dyson Daniels will presumably draw another start in Jones' absence. Per Spencer Davies of, head coach Willie Green said Monday that Jones "is doing good," but it's unclear when the second-year forward will suit up again, though his next chance to do so will come Wednesday against Miami.
