Terrence Jones participated in the Houston Rockets practice for first time since sustaining a concussion in a car accident February 4.

This means the power forward should be worked back into the line-up initially coming off the bench.

Since becoming a professional NBA basketball players Terrence Jones has accumulated an extremely strange menagerie of injuries. In fact when you compile his list of odd ailments it reads like a plot line for a movie:

  • Concussion sustained in a car accident occurring en route to catch plane for game (to Phoenix, February 3, 2016)
  • Lacerated eyelid sustained while trying to rebound the ball
  • Despite not breaking or cracking his ribs he suffered partially collapsed lung after diving for a lose ball (March 19, 2015)
  • Right hip strain (March 6, 2015)
  • Back spasms/strain (various games last season)
  • Nerve inflammation in his leg couldn’t be explained (as to why it occurred) or fixed for months forcing him to be on injured list to  start 2014-15 season until his return January 29, 2015

As noted this morning he may have company on back on the bench if the deal which sent Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton to the Pistons is rescinded due to concerns over D-Mo’s back.
