Jones will start at small forward in Wednesday's tilt against Milwaukee, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Jones is drawing the start in place of Tyler Johnson (ankle). He started back-to-back games last week, recording 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds across 24.5 minutes per game in those two outings. He'll likely see a similar minutes load against the Bucks on Wednesday. Look for Jones to return to his role off the bench whenever Johnson returns to action.

Jones will move to a bench role for Sunday's game against the Bucks. With recent injuries to both Tyler Johnson (neck) and Dion Waiters (ankle), Jones was able to pick up back-to-back starts, averaging 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.5 blocks across 24.5 minutes during that span. However, with Johnson now healthy, he'll rejoin the top unit, which sends Jones back to his typical bench role. Look for Jones to see a sizable decrease in his overall role with the move back to the bench, making him someone that can be avoided for fantasy purposes Sunday.

Jones was recalled from the G-League on Sunday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Despite being assigned to the G-League on Jan. 11, Jones has appeared in each of the Heat's past four contests -- averaging 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds over 17.5 minutes per game. Justise Winslow (knee) is expected to return to the court for the first time in over a month Sunday, so Jones could see his role reduced.

Jones was assigned to the G-League on Thursday. Despite starting the last two games for Heat due to injuries piling up on the wing, Jones will once again head to the G-League in order to get him as many reps as possible. He'll likely be recalled in time for Sunday's tilt with Milwaukee and there's a good chance he sees an expanded role with injuries to guys like Dion Waiters (ankle), Rodney McGruder (leg) and Justise Winslow (knee) still lingering.
