Jones, a junior who entered the game averaging 11.3 points, has what coach Ben Howland said is a "mallet finger." The tendon in the top joint of his finger was damaged and Jones will have to wear a splint for the next month, Howland said. He wasn't sure if Jones would miss any time, but the Bruins don't play again until Jan. 9 at USC.
Jones injured his finger late in the first half. He looked tentative during halftime warmups, but started the second half before coming out with 14 minutes, 6 seconds to play. He finished with three points and three assists, but did not make a field goal.
