Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Delivers again in loss
Jones produced 17 points (4-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one block and three steals across 36 minutes during Saturday's 124-118 loss to the Bulls.
Jones delivered another strong two-way performance despite the loss, continuing his fast start to the season. He has been a top-40 player in standard leagues, thanks to averages of 11.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.3 blocks. In a nutshell, he is putting up career-high numbers across the board. Although the return of Trey Murphy is likely to have an impact, Jones should remain a highly rostered player moving forward, given his importance on the defensive end.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Limited by fouls in loss
Jones contributed 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal across 26 minutes during Saturday's 105-100 loss to Utah.
Jones racked up three early fouls in the loss, at which point he was subsequently benched. While this is the usual course of action when a player is dealing with early foul issues, it may have in fact cost the Pelicans the game in this instance. He ended the game with three fouls in 26 minutes, raising the question of whether he should have been allowed to play rather than being forced to sit on the bench. In any case, he still managed to produce a solid fantasy line and remains a must-roster player across most formats.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Continues excellent play
Jones ended Monday's 129-93 victory over the Kings with 18 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal across 27 minutes.
Since returning from a three-game absence due to a fight fibula contusion, Jones has averaged 14.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.8 steals and 1.8 blocks in 30.8 minutes per game. Those would all be career-high marks by a large margin, so Jones is clearly playing at a high level right now. The impending returns of CJ McCollum (chest) and Trey Murphy (knee) may impact Jones' usage, but he would still be a solid fantasy play due to his defensive prowess.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Pops defensively in return
Jones (fibula) had 19 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five steals, four rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 131-110 win over Dallas.
Jones returned from a three-game absence due to a right fibula contusion and didn't miss a beat. The defensive-minded forward excelled defensively, but he also submitted an efficient offensive outing, making it one of his best all-around performances of the young season. With Trey Murphy (knee) still sidelined, Jones should continue to play 30-plus minutes per game and can make a strong fantasy impact with his defensive prowess alone.... See More ... See Less

Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Huge defensive effort Thursday
Jones logged 21 points (6-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT), five rebounds, three assists, four blocks and three steals across 34 minutes during Thursday's 125-116 victory over the Pistons.
The four rejections were a career high for Jones, while the 21 points were a season-high mark. He also racked up three steals, doubling his total on the season. Jones' increased scoring came on a night when both Brandon Ingram (knee) and Zion Williamson (rest) were in street clothes, and he'll likely return to his support role when Williamson is back in action Saturday against the Hawks....

Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Nears double-double in win
Jones produced 13 points (4-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 38 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 victory over the Grizzlies.
Jones scored in double figures Wednesday and tied for second on the team in rebounds while approaching a double-double. He averaged 29.5 minutes per game last year and saw plenty of playing time to begin the 2023-24 season with Trey Murphy (knee) sidelined. Murphy is expected to be out several weeks, so Jones could continue to see an uptick in minutes early in the campaign.... See More ... See Less
