Dominique Jones G DAL 6 Months
Dominique Jones has signed a deal to play in China.
He had an interesting year with the Mavericks last season. Jones was rumored to be on the trade block, but he started three games for them. He did shoot 23.8 percent from the field in those starts and hasn't done much in his NBA career.

Mavericks waive G Dominique Jones.
They were reportedly trying to trade him at the deadline and would have probably taken anything in exchange for the former first-round pick. He has some talent and even started three games this year, so perhaps he can catch on with a team like the Hornets that has no depth in the backcourt.

Dominique Jones shot 5-of-8 from the field for 15 points with two boards, two assists and one block in just 14 minutes.
He tied his season high with those 15 points and it was his first game with double-digit minutes since December 27. Jones can remain on the waiver wire and his upside would be nothing more than a timeshare with Roddy Beaubois (seven points in 10 minutes) in the event of a Darren Collison injury (eight points and four assists in 24 minutes).

Dominique Jones made a surprise start for the Mavs on Sunday, replacing Darren Collison, but he shot just 1-of-7 from the field for seven points in 20 minutes.
DoJo chipped in four assists and two steals, but he also bricked 3-of-6 FTs and the Mavs were crushed from the outset by the Spurs. The drubbing doesn't fall on his shoulders, of course, but he didn't do anything to justify the starting nod or suggest he'll be a reliable fantasy option. If you're still on the fence, consider that he's a 36.1 percent shooter who is 1-of-19 from downtown in his NBA career.

Dominique Jones will start at PG for the Mavericks on Sunday, replacing Darren Collison.
Rick Carlisle obviously isn't sold on Collison as a starter, primarily because of his defensive weaknesses, but it remains to be seen whether DoJo can hold down the job. Fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach -- DoJo is a 36.1 percent shooter, and his career assist-to-turnover ratio (1.8-to-1.0) doesn't inspire much confidence.

Dominique Jones tied a career-high with 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting, and also chipped in with three rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday.
Jones filled in for both Darren Collison (flu, 10 minutes) and Derek Fisher (knee), which is the obvious caveat to tonight's result. Still, some beat writers were joking that he was playing better than Collison, albeit before news broke that Collison was sick. He needs to show more before owners should pay him much attention.

Dominique Jones played 26 minutes off the bench and had seven points, seven assists and one steal against the Heat on Thursday.
DoJo's seven assists were a career high and he's been the backup point guard with Derek Fisher out of the lineup. Fisher could miss a few more games, so owners in very deep leagues could give him a look for short-term value.

Dominique Jones or Roddy Beaubois could start at point guard with the injury to Derek Fisher.
Rick Carlisle could choose to keep Darren Collison in his bench role, and that would result in one of the other point guards starting for Fisher. No matter who starts, Collison is the biggest beneficiary from a fantasy perspective of Fisher's absence.
