Jones is set for another round of treatment for leukemia in December.

Texas Longhorns guard Andrew Jones returned to the court in Tuesday's game against Eastern Illinois, and he suited up for his first action since being diagnosed with leukemia in January.

Jones first checked in with 11 minutes, 40 seconds remaining in the second half to a roaring crowd. Soon after a road game at Iowa State on January 1, complaining of extreme fatigue, Jones was quickly diagnosed with leukemia and spent the spring and summer at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where he began treatment. The rising junior led Texas with 13.5 points per game a year ago. Jones didn't play another game for Texas during the 2017-18 season.

Jones played nine minutes in the lopsided win and notched a single point via free throw.

Jones was in the hospital until February and completed outpatient treatment in August. What followed was more than a six month long battle before returning to practice with the team in late September.

He was not made available to reporters after the game but told reporters last week: "I didn't want to feel like a victim. Through the grace of God, anything is possible". "The team doctor and the trainers want to make sure we're building back his strength before he gets thrown out there full time". The Longhorns' next game will be a matchup against Arkansas on November 9.

"It felt good just having his presence", guard Matt Coleman III said.
