Jones (thigh) is absent from the injury report for Wednesday's game against Memphis.
Jones missed some practice time earlier in the week while nursing a left thigh bruise, but he's received the green light to take the court for Wednesday's season opener. He averaged seven points and four rebounds over 60 games a season ago with Miami and will likely fall into a similar role this year.
Jones didn't practice Sunday due to a left thigh contusion, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Heraldreports.
It's unknown when exactly Jones suffered the thigh injury and how severe it may be. The Heat are likely playing with caution though, as the team opens the season Wednesday against Memphis. Jones should be considered day-to-day until further news regarding his injury surfaces.
Jones totaled four points (2-5 FG), two rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 21 minutes during Thursday's 107-98 win over the Magic.
Jones returned to the lineup after exiting Monday's matchup against the Hawks with a bruised left knee. Jones is mostly known for his prowess as a dunker, but he could have the opportunity to showcase himself as a more well-rounded player in 2019-20.
Jones won't return to Monday's game against Atlanta due to a bruised left knee.
The injury doesn't appear to be overly serious, but the Heat will exercise caution by shutting Jones down for the rest of the night. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.
