Houston Rocket Terrence Jones has missed all but 4 games this season with nerve damage, but makes his return to the court tonight against the Dallas Mavericks

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones will make his return to the court tonight against the Dallas Mavericks after missing all but the first four games of the season due to nerve damage in his lower body.

Before going down to injury Jones was averaging 14 ppg and 7.5 rpg in just under 30 minutes a game.

The Houston Rockets don't look exactly the same as when Jones went down. Dwight Howard is out of the lineup tonight as he continues to recover from an ankle sprain suffered last week. Rockets power forward Donatas Motiejunas made the most of Jones' absence by turning himself into a rock solid part of the Rockets starting lineup and rebuffing an attempt by newcomer Josh Smith to take over the starting role.

There's no reports on how many minutes we should expect Jones to play, but Rockets coach Kevin McHale has confirmed he will be on the court.
