James Jones SG/SF MIA 19 Days

James Jones made his second consecutive start on Saturday vs. the Bucks, finishing with 10 points, two boards, one assist and one block in 27 minutes.

Jones hit a couple treys tonight and scored 10 for the second consecutive night. The Heat should get some of the calvary back on Monday, which will likely knock Jones out of the rotation.

James Jones is starting vs. the Pistons on Friday.

He'll join LeBron James, Toney Douglas, Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem. Jones hasn't played since Jan. 17 and would be a very risky play in fantasy leagues. Michael Beasley should get some extended run with the second unit and is a better option than Jones.

James Jones started in place of Dwyane Wade for the second straight game and hit 5-of-8 shots (all 3-pointers) for 17 points in Wednesday's win.

He'll be a nice source of 3-pointers any time Wade is out, but figuring out when Wade is going to play or sit is not an easy thing to do. Jones hit two 3-pointers on Tuesday, giving him seven over the last two nights.

James Jones will start in place of Dwyane Wade on Tuesday, while Shane Battier will continue starting ahead of Udonis Haslem.

It's Miami's sixth starting lineup of the season, but Jones' SG gig will likely be short-lived with D-Wade possibly returning vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

Starting at SF in place of LeBron James (rest), James Jones shot 6-of-8 from downtown to finish with 18 points in 24 minutes.

Jones cracked double-digit scoring once last season, in a meaningless game in late April. He should have a bigger role this year with Mike Miller no longer on the roster, but remains a deep-league-only option for his 3-point shooting.

James Jones exercised his player option on Tuesday and will stay with the Heat next season.

Jones doesn't have much of a role with the champs, which is why he's locking into the money while he can.

James Jones has no plans to retire after the season.

"Unless something crazy happens, I'll be back," Jones said in reference to his $1.5 million player option. Why wouldn't he be? He never plays, is on the best team in basketball and can be around LeBron James every day. It's a good job if you can get it.
