  • Johnson contributed 15 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 37 minutes during Saturday's 106-103 victory over the Wizards. Johnson has started his third straight game with Luke Babbitt (hip) sidelined, recording his second consecutive double-double. He's demonstrated his ability to be a versatile all-around player on both ends of the floor, capable of recording regular double-doubles, as well as flirting with triple-doubles, while collecting an impressive total of defensive statistics. He should probably be owned in the majority of year-long fantasy leagues and makes for a quality DFS option due to his ability to stuff the stat sheet. Even when Babbitt returns, expect Johnson to see around 25 to 30 minutes per game off the bench.

  • Johnson tallied 22 points (8-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks across 38 minutes during Friday's 96-94 loss to the Raptors. Johnson has been impressive over his past two games, which were both starts, totaling 48 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, five steals and two blocks across 70 minutes of action. While he normally provides a bench spark for the Heat, the absence of starting power forward Luke Babbitt (hip) has opened up an opportunity for Johnson in the starting five. Regardless of whether he draws a start or not, look for Johnson to continue seeing around a 30-minute workload for the remainder of the season, providing value across the stat sheet.

  • Heat's James Johnson: Shines in start Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson scored 26 points (10-12 FG, 6-7 3Pt) with four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Hornets. Johnson has been a key cog in the revival of the Heat's season dating back to January, but he hadn't received a single start all season. That changed on Wednesday, and the athletic forward did not disappoint. Johnson converted a season-high 83.3 percent of his field goals on his way to tying his season-high point total with 26, and if that wasn't enough he also set a new career-high with six made threes. Johnson has been rolling as the Heat fight for a playoff spot, averaging 16.2 points on 49.6 percent from the field with 4.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists over his last ten games.

  • Johnson will start at power forward in Wednesday's game against the Hornets. With Luke Babbitt (hip) out Wendnesday, Johnson will take his place in the team's starting five. It shouldn't, however, have much of an impact on the number of minutes the forward will play against Charlotte, as Johnson has been an integral part of the Heat's rotation as of late and has been frequently used in their crunch-time lineups. Look for Johnson to play 30-plus minutes Wednesday in a key game for Miami as they look to make a push for the playoffs.

  • Johnson tallied 20 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 loss to the Celtics. Johnson bounced back Sunday from subpar offensive performances over his past two games -- where he totaled 20 points on 6-of-23 shooting, five rebounds and four assists. With Dion Waiters (ankle) sidelined, Johnson has assumed a significant chunk of the ballhandling duties off the bench for the Heat and will likely continue to put up all-around two-way performances in Waiters' absence, making him a solid fantasy option in any format.
