    Celtics' Amir Johnson: Zero points, zero boards in win

    Johnson, despite starting, collected zero points and zero boards during 13 minutes of play in Wednesday's OT win versus the Clippers. Johnson continues to start for the C's, but has significantly cooled off. Over his past five games, all starts, he's averaged only 4.8 points, 4.6 boards and 0.4 blocks per game. In fact, he has scored in single digits in each of his last 15 games, after nearly averaging a double-double the first half of January. The re-emergence of Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger in the rotation is having a negative impact on Johnson's stats.

    Celtics' Amir Johnson: Solid night on the boards

    Johnson had nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in a win against Denver on Wednesday. Johnson had a great night on the glass with the 13 rebounds, but more impressively, seven of them were on the offensive end. Johnson has had a great season thus far and is currently holding off Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk for the majority of minutes in Boston's rotation. Johnson is a safe play on most nights, and a productive cheap option for DFS purposes if he has a favorable matchup.

    Celtics' Amir Johnson: Sitting out Friday

    Johnson will not play Friday against the Bulls for personal reasons, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. It's unclear exactly what's keeping Johnson from playing, but he's away from the team Friday, and Kelly Olynyk will start in his place. Coach Brad Stevens said the team hopes to have Johnson back in time for Sunday's meeting with the 76ers in Philadelphia, but with a major winter storm set to slam the Atlantic shore this weekend, it's unclear whether traveling will be an issue. As a result, consider Johnson questionable to play Sunday.

    Celtics' Amir Johnson: Has solid game in return from injury

    Johnson (foot) returned to the lineup and tallied 12 points (6-7 FG) and eight rebounds over 28 minutes in Saturday's 99-93 victory over the Pistons. The veteran made a successful return to the court after having missed Boston's last two contests with foot inflammation. His 12 points equaled his best scoring total in December, and the eight boards were his highest figure in that category for the month. Johnson also encouragingly had his best shooting night of the season outside of two games where he sank 100 percent of one and three shot attempts, respectively. While consistency has certainly been a problem for the 28-year-old in his first season in a Celtics uniform, he now has four double-digit scoring games and one double-double in the 10 December contests he's been a part of.
