    Raptors' James Johnson: Out for Tuesday's game

    Johnson (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Suns, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. Johnson sprained his ankle in Monday's game and was considered doubtful to play Tuesday. After X-ray's on his ankle came back negative Johnson will be getting an MRI to better understand the severity of his ankle injury, and he should be considered questionable in advance of Thursday's game against Portland. Expect an update on his status before then. Terrance Ross will likely start in place of Johnson, but no announcement has yet been made.

    Raptors' James Johnson: X-rays on ankle come back negative

    Johnson's X-rays on his sprained left ankle came back negative Monday. Johnson suffered the sprain during Monday's contest against the Nuggets where X-rays were taken mid-game. His ability to play in Tuesday's game against the Suns seems unlikely, but official word on his status should be unveiled in advance of Tuesday's tipoff. If he's forced to the sidelines, expect Patrick Patterson, Terrence Ross, and Anthony Bennett to have opportunities for extended playing time.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Will not return Monday

    Johnson will not return to Monday's matchup with the Nuggets due to an injured left ankle. Johnson injured his ankle early in the second quarter, and it is severe enough keep him out the rest of the game. The extent of the injury is unknown, and his next opportunity to play will be Tuesday versus the Suns. For now he is day-to-day, but he will likely be on the doubtful side of questionable for Tuesday's matchup due to it being the second half of a back-to-back. He exited Monday's contest with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one block, and one triple in 10 minutes of action. Expect an update on his status prior to tip-off Tuesday.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Submits season-high four blocks

    Johnson produced one point (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT) to go with a season-high four blocks Throughout his career, Johnson has been a strong per-minute source of blocks and steals, but even though he's now starting at small forward for the Raptors, he's still not seeing enough playing time to truly be a consistent difference maker in those categories. Even more problematic for Johnson's fantasy value is that he's a complete black hole on offense, as he's combined for only five points over the past three games.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Scores just two points in Sunday's win

    Johnson scored two points on 1-for-4 shooting while adding two assists and a rebound in 15 minutes during Sunday's win over the Clippers. Terrence Ross was lights-out from downtown Sunday and ended up playing 33 minutes, but even when Johnson sees more court time, he hasn't been doing much with it. Since moving back into the starting lineup nine games ago in place of the injured DeMarre Carroll (knee), Johnson is averaging just 5.7 points, 2.4 boards, 0.7 threes and 0.7 blocks in 20.1 minutes a night. He provides solid length and defense as a starter, but as long as Ross is locked in offensively, Johnson will get the short end of the stick at small forward when it comes to playing time.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Scores eight points in Wednesday's start

    Johnson managed eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two blocks in 26 minutes during the Raptors' 91-74 win versus the Nets on Wednesday. Johnson earned the start in place of DeMarre Carroll (knee surgery), and Johnson could continue to start going forward for the Raptors while Carroll sits. However, Johnson will undoubtedly share time with Terrence Ross at small forward, effectively limiting both players' fantasy values.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Starting in place of Carroll

    Johnson will get the start in place of DeMarre Carroll (knee) Wednesday against the Nets, Sportsnet's Eric Smith reports. The Raptors announced Wednesday morning that Carroll will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, and while a timetable has not been released, Carroll figures to be in for an extended absence. As such, Johnson's insertion into the starting lineup will likely be semi-permanent, though coach Dwane Casey may also turn to Terrence Ross in certain situations. Regardless, both Johnson and Ross should see increased minutes throughout the duration of Carroll's absence. Johnson started in place of Carroll against Cleveland on Monday and finished with five points in 23 minutes.

    Raptors' James Johnson: Limited production in start

    Johnson scored five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) to go with a steal across 23 minutes in Monday's loss to the Cavaliers. Johnson assumed most of the roughly 25 minutes DeMarre Carroll (knee) had been seeing as the starting small forward, but failed to do much with the opportunity. The swelling in Carroll's knee could force him to miss multiple games, but Johnson isn't likely to produce helpful counting stats even as he continues to see extended minutes. Johnson is averaging just 4.9 points, two rebounds, and one assist over 14 minutes per game on the campaign.
