Jones has been dismissed from Louisville, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

No reason has been given for Jones' dismissal, but the guard was recently suspended one game for violating team rules. He was likely already on this ice due to this recent suspension, and must have made one more mistake in the eyes of the team. Jones is likely Louisville's best backcourt player, and it's obvious when he's not on the court. Look for Quentin Snider and Terry Rozier to play heavy minutes and get some extra shot attempts without Jones on the team

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones was reinstated from his suspension Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Jones missed Wednesday's loss to Syracuse because of the suspension for violating team rules, but he's apparently met the conditions for his reinstatement. The senior will be eligible to play again Saturday against Miami.

February 17, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones has been suspended for violating team rules and will not travel to Syracuse for Wednesday's game, Sports Illustrated's Brian Hamilton reports.

There is no set timetable for Jones to return to the team, so he should be considered out indefinitely. Jones has been perhaps the best player in Louisville's backcourt this year, and will be very difficult to replace. Terry Rozier and Quentin Snider should see more minutes and more shots with Jones out, but if Louisville hopes to compete in the ACC tourney, it will be critical for Jones to be able to return in short order. It is not clear if Jones will be able to play in Saturday's game against Miami, but he should be considered highly questionable.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones scored 28 points (10-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-9 FT) and grabbed six rebounds in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 81-72 win over Boston College.

Following a dud versus Duke back on January 17, Jones has put up back-to-back solid efforts. Over the past two games, the senior guard has totaled 45 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds while shooting 6-of-9 from beyond the arc.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones scored a game-high 22 points (6-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT) to go with five steals and four rebounds in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 58-52 win over Clemson.

Louisville has gotten off to a 2-0 start in their first ever ACC slate and Jones has been the main reason. In wins over Wake Forest and Clemson, the senior guard has totaled 44 points, 12 assists, eight rebounds and eight steals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones did not score a point and played just nine minutes while coming off the bench during Louisville's victory Tuesday. Jones' lack of playing time was a punishment for flopping in the previous game, the Courier-Journal reports.

Jones tried to draw a foul during Louisville's contest against Kentucky, but after a replay or two it was very obvious that Jones was not even touched when he squirmed to the floor. Head coach Rick Petino was very upset with the flop, and decided to sit Jones for most of the next game as a punishment. Expect Jones' punishment to be over, and he should re-enter the starting lineup and play his usual minutes, as long as he does not flop again.

December 10, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones finished with 24 points (8-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and three steals in Tuesday's 94-74 win over Indiana.

Jones certainly stepped his game up Tuesday night. The senior guard came into the contest shooting a miserable 30.1 percent from the field and 64.5 percent from the charity stripe. However, he bettered both of those marks against Indiana, which resulted in a season-high 24 points. This impressive all-around performance is definitely a great sign for the 8-0, No. 4 ranked Cardinals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jones (shin) is expected to play Wednesday against Cleveland State, the Courier-Journal reports.

Jones ran into a bit of shin soreness following Monday's victory over Savannah State, which limited him to 17 minutes in the contest. Since he suffered a stress fracture in his shin over the summer, there had been thought that coach Rick Pitino would monitor his minutes during the early part of the season. The senior point guard looks to be ready to go, but his ultimate workload will depend on how his shins respond to another round of game action, which makes him a slightly risky play in daily formats. Jones is averaging 12.5 points per game over the Cardinals' first four contests, but the scoring numbers could be poised to increase if he's able to improve upon a field goal percentage of 30.8.
