Derrick Jones Jr. contributed five points (2-of-4 FG, 1-of-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist, two steals and three swats across 30 minutes in Monday's blowout loss to the Spurs.
It's not an amazing stat line, but the defensive numbers were nice and he didn't commit a single turnover while he was out there. DJJ did appear to tweak something in his right hand, but he played through it, so he should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis. Over the past two games sans Jusuf Nurkic (wrist), DJJ's minutes have spiked to 31.9 and he's been a sneaky late-round producer with averages of 7.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.5 swats and just 1.0 turnover per game on 43.8% shooting.
