      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Score only two points in Nets loss

      Johnson has scored eight or fewer points in his last five games, including only posting two points during Sunday's loss in Brooklyn. Johnson has been in Boston's starting lineup since November 4th, but his offensive production has tailed off. Over his past five contests, he's averaging only 5.8 points and 3.6 boards from 24 minutes of play with a total of only one three point attempt. On the positive, he continues to anchor Boston's frontcourt defense with 1.2 blocks per game over those same five games.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Scores 19 points on Friday

      Johnson recorded 19 points (8-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, and three blocks in 36 minutes during the Celtics' 106-93 win versus the Hawks on Friday. Johnson tallied his season-high in points, assists, steals, blocks, and minutes on Friday, dominating both ends of the floor during the Celtics' win. Coach Brad Stevens' rotation can definitely be a headache for fantasy owners, and with so many reliable big men in Johnson, Jared Sullinger, David Lee, Tyler Zeller, and Kelly Olynyk, there will still likely be nights where Johnson struggles to find the floor for extended minutes. However, his versatility appears to have at least helped him win a starting spot for now, though that's translated into only 22 minutes per game thus far this season.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Plays 18 minutes in blowout win

      Johnson (ankle) contributed five points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and six rebounds in 18 minutes during the Celtics' 118-98 win versus the Wizards on Friday. Johnson (ankle) turned it over twice and committed four fouls, but the fact that he was able to take the floor after leaving Wednesday's game versus the Pacers is encouraging. Still, the Celtics' front-court depth makes it difficult to trust Johnson in most fantasy formats.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Will be available Friday against Wizards

      Johnson (ankle) will be available Friday against the Wizards, A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast SportsNet reports. Johnson twisted his ankle Wednesday against the Pacers, but it doesn't appear to be anything to serious. That being said, Johnson may be held to limited playing time depending on how he feels going full-speed. He shares a frontcourt with Kelly Olynyk, David Lee, and Jared Sullinger, so given the uncertain effect of Johnson's ankle on his game, it may be a better idea to target these players in daily leagues Friday.

      Johnson missed the second half of Boston's game Wednesday night due to a twisted ankle, Chris Forsberg of ESPN reports.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Will start Wednesday

      Johnson has been named a starter for Wednesday's game against the Pacers. Coach Brad Stevens is mixing up his frontcourt a bit tonight, electing to start Jared Sullinger and Johnson at the four and five positions. Johnson's daily fantasy value increases with the potential increase in minutes, as he could provide decent scoring and rebounding numbers against Indiana.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Scores 15 in preseason win

      Johnson amassed 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3 Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in a preseason win over the Nets on Monday. Johnson keeps putting up nice scoring numbers this preseason and he's definitely making a case as the starting power forward or center. It's unclear if Johnson will slot in as the center with David Lee at the power forward slot, but it appears coach Brad Stevens is keen on making Tyler Zeller the starting center with David Lee as the starting power forward. In any case, it's all muddled up and it would be best to just avoid the whole situation for now.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Drops 19-6 and defensively strong in preseason win over Nets

      Johnson scored 19 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and accumulated six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in a 109-105 win over the Nets on Tuesday. The three-pointers here may be the most notable stat, as he continues to try to implement that into his game. It appears he'll be the regular starter for the Celtics and his ability to score, rebound, defend and hit threes makes him valuable in almost every format. If everything comes together, Johnson has breakout written all over him.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Returns to practice after dealing with illness

      Johnson returned to practice Sunday after sitting out with an illness, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports. The Celtics as a whole have been dealing with a flu bug, which has caused a few different players to miss time. Johnson sat out Thursday's matchup with Real Madrid because of it, but is feeling better and was able to return to practice Sunday. With three more days of rest until Wednesday's game against the Nets, there's no reason to think Johnson won't be able to suit up and play.
