Johnson was recalled from the D-League on Monday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. During his latest stint with the Salt Lake City Stars, Johnson appeared in three contests, averaging 15.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game. The rookie out of North Carolina has not been a regular member of the Clippers' rotation.
Johnson was assigned to the D-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Sunday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Johnson has appeared in just two contests for the Clippers this season after missing the majority of the year with a herniated disc in his back. In those appearances, he's totaled two points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across seven minutes. He will likely continue to not be a part of the Clippers' rotation for the remainder of the season.
Johnson was recalled from the D-League on Monday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. The rookie out of North Carolina has appeared in only one game for the Clippers after dealing with a herniated disc in his back, and he's highly unlikely to be an impact player at the NBA level over the final month of the regular season. In three games for the Salt Lake City Stars, Johnson posted averages of 9.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in 14.1 minutes.
Johnson was assigned to the D-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Tuesday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Since being cleared to return to the court in February after spending all season recovering from a herniated disc, Johnson has made a lone three-minute appearance off the Clippers bench. While Johnson hasn't experienced any setbacks with the injury, the lack of playing time is less than ideal for a rookie, so heading to the D-League will give him the opportunity to gain some meaningful in-game reps. Don't expect Johnson to be included in the rotation once he rejoins the Clippers after the D-League stint.
Johnson (back) logged three minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors, recording no points (0-1 FG) and two rebounds. After suffering a herniated disc in October, Johnson had spent the last four-plus months recovering from the injury, and the Clippers elected to activate the rookie for the first time all season following his involvement in practices the last few weeks. Though Johnson logged some spot minutes, it's unlikely he'll see regular run in competitive contests, especially now that Blake Griffin is back to full health. The Clippers could opt to send the 22-year-old to the D-League in the near future in an effort to get him more in-game experience.
