Johnson recorded 19 points, three assists, and three steals with 25 minutes Thursday's game against the Kings. The point guard recorded significant numbers Thursday and tallied 18 minutes Tuesday against the Timberwolves, two contests that Beno Udrih had no playing time afforded. Considering Johnson's impressive performances and Udrih's lack of minutes, Johnson seems to be in the running as the top backup point guard.
Johnson posted 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks in Thursday's game against the Jazz. Johnson is averaging 10.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.0 trey over the last five games. He had a pretty strong performance Thursday, but it's not likely he'll produce that way consistently. He's averaging just over 20 minutes a game this season and it would take an injury or two for him to have the opportunity to produce fantasy-worthy numbers.
Johnson scored 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and posted three rebounds and an assist over 23 minutes in Sunday's win over the Raptors. After logging just two combined minutes in the Heat's first two games, Johnson has emerged as a rotation player for coach Erik Spoelstra since the calendar flipped to November. Over the last five games, he has cleared the 20-minute mark on four occasions, tallying double-digit scoring twice.
Heat guard Tyler Johnson (back) amassed 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two assists, and two rebounds over 21 minutes in Saturday's 105-100 victory over the Rockets. Johnson enjoyed a productive return to the court from his bruised tailbone, shooting well from the field and filling out the stat sheet overall. Johnson currently slots behind offseason acquisition John Lucas on the point guard depth chart, but given the solid body of work he turned in during his rookie campaign, would appear to have a solid chance to move up the pecking order as the regular season unfolds.
Johnson (back) worked a little on Thursday, but his still hurting, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports. Johnson took a hard fall in Tuesday's game and is still feeling the effects from it. He's not likely to be in the rotation to start the year, but hopefully he can return this preseason to earn the teams confidence.
