News: Orlando guard DeQuan Jones got a start on Wednesday against the Bobcats, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Jones played just nine minutes in his last game Monday against Miami.
Analysis: Jones is averaging just 4.5 points per game over his last four contests through less than 10 minutes on the court. He might get a couple starts down the stretch, but we doubt it will do anything to his Fantasy value. Jones has low-end value and that will continue going forward.
News: Magic forward DeQuan Jones (ankle) was ruled active for Wednesday's contest against the Clippers, but he did not see the floor during the 86-76 defeat. Jones, who was also held out of Orlando's loss to the 76ers on Monday night, was listed as a DNP-coach's decision on the stat sheet.
Analysis: Jones was able to go through the team's morning shootaround earlier in the day, but coach Jacque Vaughn opted to leave him on the bench. With all the injuries Orlando has been dealing with in its frontcourt, Jones has been seeing some decent run off the bench of late, but hasn't been doing much with his extended playing time. Fantasy owners should continue to ignore the former University of Miami standout in all formats, whether he is healthy or not.
News: Magic guard DeQuan Jones, who missed Monday's game with an ankle injury, is no longer wearing a walking boot, according to the Orlando Sentinel. He went through shootaround Wednesday and might play against the Clippers. He is considered a game-time decision.
Analysis: Jones has been seeing decent minutes off the bench lately for Orlando, but he's still not making a great impact in Fantasy formats. He continues to have marginal Fantasy appeal when healthy since he is far more important to his real team.
News: Orlando guard DeQuan Jones was ruled out for Monday's game at Philadelphia with a sore ankle. Jones has logged at least 14 minutes in each of the past three games as he has received a boost in playing time with the Magic's slew of injuries.
Analysis: Jones, a rookie out of the University of Miami, wasn't a major factor for Orlando at the beginning of the season and averaged less than four points per game in each of the first two months. But the 22-year-old has experienced extended run and responded with eight points and four rebounds last Saturday at Milwaukee, one of his finest outings of the season. He still holds marginal Fantasy value in most formats when active.
News: Orlando guard DeQuan Jones may get some added run in the near future after Glen Davis suffered a broken foot during Wednesday's loss to the Knicks. Jones only played 18 minutes on Wednesday, despite Davis getting just four before getting hurt. Jones scored two points on 1 for 3 shooting and didn't add any other relevant statistics.
Analysis: Jones has scored four points spanning the Magic's last five games and doesn't do much else outside of shoot the ball. While he might get some more minutes going forward, we doubt it is going to translate into added Fantasy value.
News: After starting each of Orlando's last 10 games, Magic guard DeQuan Jones came off the bench during Tuesday's contest against the Pistons. Jones, who was replaced by J.J. Redick in the starting lineup, failed to score while logging four minutes in the 105-90 defeat. He did not attempt a shot during his brief run on the court but did add one assist and one rebound to his stat line.
Analysis: Jones had started 10 straight games for Orlando, but was moved back to the bench versus Detroit. The 22-year-old averaged just 5.5 points and 2.9 rebounds over that stretch but now could have a hard time seeing minutes based on how things went Tuesday night. Coach Jacque Vaughn did not address if his lineup changes were permanent or not, so owners will have to keep an eye on how he sets the lineup and rotation moving forward. Still, Jones did not have much appeal to Fantasy owners while he was starting anyway, so continue to ignore him in the majority of formats moving forward.
News: Magic guard DeQuan Jones was in the starting lineup yet again Wednesday against the Nuggets, as he continues to see a bigger role in recent games. Jones played 26 minutes in the game, scoring a career-high 11 points on 5 of 7 shooting. He also grabbed five rebounds, a pair of assists, and a block and steal each. The Magic lost the game, 108-105.
Analysis: Jones has now started five games in a row, averaging 20.6 minutes per game in that span. The 22-year-old is averaging 7.0 points per game in that stretch. Jones makes little impact in the box score regardless of whether he starts, so Fantasy owners should continue to consider him just a low-end Fantasy option in all formats.
News: Magic rookie forward DeQuan Jones did not come off the bench against the Pistons Friday night.will be available to play Friday night against the Pistons. Jones has sat out his last five games and had been dealing with a lingering groin injury. According to the team's play-by-play analyst, Jones is healthy and was available to return, if needed on Friday.
Analysis: Jones will take advantage of the extra day off though he appears to be back at 100 percent. The rookie is one of the few second rounders who has actually seen some court time over the early part of the season, but he hasn't been able to produce much in his limited minutes. Though he has not come off the bench since the injury, Jones should only be owned in deeper long-term keeper formats for now.

The rookie is one of the few second rounders who has actually seen some court time over the early part of the season, but he hasn't been able to produce much in his limited minutes. At this point in the season, Jones should only be owned in deeper long-term keeper formats.

Analysis: Jones was Orlando's second-round pick in last summer's draft and won a roster spot with his strong play in the summer league and in the preseason. However, his defensive game with a lot further along then his offensive game and he is not expected to see major minutes right away. Fantasy owners should consider the rookie more of a long-term keeper option at this point in the season.
