Jonathan Feigen, who covers the Rockets for the Houston Chronicle, tweeted the following on Jones after his injury during Wednesday's game.
Jones is listed as day-to-day and should be ready for tonight's game against the San Antonio Spurs. Should Jones be unable to play, expect Donatas Montiejunas, who missed all 11 shots from the floor in 23 minutes against the Magic, to get the start.

Jones, in his third NBA season, is averaging 9.9 points and 5.1 games this preseason.  He played in just 19 games as a rookie in 2012-2013 and averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds. Last season, Jones averaged 12.1 points and 6.9 rebounds in 76 games.
