    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Grabs season-high nine boards in season-high 42 minutes Monday

    Johnson managed seven points (3-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 42 minutes during the Clippers' 98-92 overtime win against the 76ers on Monday. Johnson started in place of Paul Pierce (rest), hauling in a season-high nine boards in a season-high 42 minutes. Over the last five contests, Johnson is posting nine points on 42 percent from the field, 5.2 rebounds, two threes, 1.6 steals, 1.4 blocks, and 0.8 assists in 27 minutes per appearance. This was only the fourth time he surpassed 30 minutes this season, and he is only worth a look in the very deepest leagues.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Moving into starting lineup

    Johnson will move into the starting lineup Monday against the 76ers, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Paul Pierce will get the night off to rest, so Johnson will step in as the de facto power forward in his place, joining DeAndre Jordan and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in the frontcourt. Johnson figures to pick up a few extra minutes, with Lance Stephenson also in line to see additional run off the bench.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Returns to bench role Sunday

    Johnson returned to the bench in Sunday's 120-93 win over the Bulls and finished with 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds, and one assist across 20 minutes. With Paul Pierce returning from a one-game absence due to rest, Johnson claimed his usual reserve role, but it didn't really alter his court time. He's played between 20 and 28 minutes in each of the last 10 games, and is averaging 8.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.9 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, 0.9 assists, and 0.6 blocks during that stretch.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Will start Friday

    Johnson will draw the start at power forward Friday, Dan Woike of the OC Register reports. Paul Pierce was given the night off, so Johnson will benefit from his absence by getting the start Friday. Expect Pierce to return for their next game Sunday versus the Bulls, so this will likely be a one time start for Johnson. He should see a slightly increased workload versus the Lakers Friday.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Swipes career-high six steals Wednesday

    Johnson recorded seven points (3-12 FG, 1-8 3Pt), six rebounds, six steals, and one block in 28 minutes during the Clippers' 85-83 win over the Hawks on Wednesday. Johnson snagged a career-high six steals, and he has seen 20 minutes or more in 15 straight contests. During the month of January, Johnson has been a steady source for threes and steals, but overall he is still only worth consideration in deep leagues.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Knocks down five three-pointers Tuesday

    Johnson scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 3Pt) and added one assist and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 91-89 victory over the Pacers. Johnson has displayed some chops from long range recently, knocking down 14-of-27 three-point tries over the Clippers' last five games. While that accurate touch has allowed him to reach double digits in the scoring column in three of those contests, Johnson's rebound and assist production during that same stretch has been rather lackluster, which will continue to limit his fantasy ceiling.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Scores 14 points Friday

    Johnson managed 14 points (5-5 FG, 4-4 3Pt), three rounds, two steals, two blocks, and one assist in 23 minutes during the Clippers' 116-88 win versus the Knicks on Friday. Over the last five games, Johnson is averaging 7.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and 0.8 blocks in 22 minutes per appearance--all of which are slight above his season averages. Johnson has been playing well lately, but his role simply isn't prominent enough to make him valuable in fantasy.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Probable with foot issue

    Johnson (foot) is considered probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports. Johnson was dealing with a minor foot issue last week, but he hasn't missed any time, playing at least 23 minutes in each of the last three games. He's likely just experiencing some soreness, and at this point he's on track to play Wednesday night. Johnson is coming off of a 15-point, four-rebound, five-steal outing against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Comes off bench Wednesday

    Johnson (foot) was deployed off the bench in Wednesday's 109-98 win over the Trail Blazers, finishing with five points (1-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one block across 24 minutes. Johnson, who was nursing an undisclosed foot injury heading into the contest, ended up evenly splitting the minutes at small forward with Paul Pierce, who received the starting nod. Though he didn't appear to be limited by the injury, Johnson struggled from the field and the Clippers were minus-3 when he was on the court. Meanwhile, Pierce turned in his best outing of the season, knocking down five of his six three-point attempts en route to 17 points, which likely puts him in pole position to continue starting for the Clippers.
