Jones/Lin Still Available

The Houston Rockets are dealing with some key injuries at the moment, so expect Terrence Jones and Jeremy Lin to produce as the season winds down.

Analysis: Terrence Jones is still available in 10-15% of fantasy leagues. He has had a productive March, averaging 13.9 points, 6.8 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.9 steals while shooting 61% from the field. Jones is the 18th rated fantasy power forward this month. Expect the former Kentucky Wildcat to keep filling the stat sheet especially with Dwight Howard sidelined for the next week or two.

Jeremy Lin is still pedestrian but with the Patrick Beverley injury… he has to produce more, right? Regardless, Lin will see 30 plus minutes of action per night the rest of the way with Beverly likely out the remainder of the regular season. Lin is averaging 11.5 points, 3.6 assists, 0.9 threes and 0.6 steals in the month of March in about 23 minutes of action per night. Jeremy Lin is available in 10-20% of fantasy leagues.

Houston has three games this week(BKN, TOR, OKC), five games next week(DEN, LAL, DEN, MIN, NO) and two games in the final week of the season(SA, NO).
