The Welsh midfielder was dispossessed by Dietmar Hamann in the middle of the park allowing Heskey to race clear and score the only goal of the match.
"Matt Jones created a song and dance in the middle of the field and gave it to Heskey who finished well," said a disappointed Bassett.
Jones's misery was compounded when he was stretchered off with a twisted knee shortly afterwards and Bassett faces a mounting injury list with Jordan Stewart coming off due to a shoulder complaint in the opening quarter of an hour.
"Matt has twisted his knee and will have a scan on Thursday. With Jordan it's a recurrence of a shoulder injury he had earlier in the season," explained the Foxes' chief.
"Jordan's is not as serious as we first thought. We'll have to find out tommorow (Thursday) how long he will be out of action.
"It is exactly what we don't need. We had Jacob Laursen and James Scowcroft back for tonight (Wednesday) but it looks as if we have got another two missing for Saturday.
"Although Frank Sinclair may be fit for the Chelsea match, we are still having a torrid time."
