Derrick Jones Jr.
22-Year-Old ForwardF
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jones was a member of the Suns until being waived in early December. The Heat seized the opportunity, signing the UNLV product to a two-way deal later than month. He only appeared in 14 games (eight starts) with the parent club, averaging 3.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.2 minutes. His upside shined through more in the G-League. Between both organizations’ respective G-League affiliates, Jones averaged 17.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and a combined 3.0 blocks/steals. Notably, he flashed an improved three-point jumper, hitting 1.6 threes per tilt at 33.8 percent after shooting 25.5 percent during his rookie year. Still, despite tangible improvements, it will be a challenge for the top-flight athlete to garner a significant role at the NBA level considering the Heat’s logjam on the wing. Read Past Outlooks

April 5, 2019
Jones (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Friday's 111-109 loss to the Timberwolves.
ANALYSIS
Jones missed Wednesday's game against the Celtics due to a knee injury but was cleared to return for this one. Nevertheless, he didn't end up seeing the floor after all, this despite earning a season-high 21.5 minutes per game across 15 matchups in March.
