Jones scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with four rebounds in 26 minutes in the loss to Boston on Sunday.

Jones received extended playing time with the Cavaliers resting the majority of their starters. He equaled his season high (set on Mar. 4 in a win over the Raptors) and could continue to get decent playing time as LeBron James and friends rest.

Jones will start Thursday's game against the Heat, the Miami Herald reports.

Because the Heat are ailing in the frontcourt -- Udonis Haslem (illness) is out, while Hassan Whiteside continues to recover from a hand laceration -- they're trotting out a starting frontcourt of Whiteside and Henry Walker. Thus, the Cavaliers will counter with a slighter lineup featuring LeBron James at the four and Jones at small forward. In his sole nod this season, Jones recorded six points (2-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and one assist in 30 minutes on Feb. 27 against the Pacers.

Jones scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go with one rebound and zero assists in 21 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

Jones has seen his role increase in the past four games, averaging 20 minutes per game. With Shawn Marion (hip) out of the rotation and Iman Shumpert struggling as of late, Jones has filled in nicely as a 3 point specialist off the bench. While Jones' ceiling is clearly limited playing behind Cleveland's stars, he could be a good plug-in for fantasy purposes.

Jones started Friday against the Pacers. He scored six points (2-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added one assist in 30 minutes.

Jones made little impact on the box score, despite a heavy helping of playing time. Even if LeBron James (back) misses more time, it's hard to count on Jones in almost any format.

Jones will start in Friday's game against the Pacers, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

LeBron James is sidelined with back soreness which is allowing Jones to have the rare start Friday. However, this bump in value will likely be short lived as James isn't expected to be sidelined for a significant amount of time.
