Wesley Johnson went scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in 20 minutes Wednesday against the Jazz and added just one rebound.
The Los Angeles Clippers have been tinkering with the starting small forward spot, and Johnson had another opportunity to make his case on Wednesday. Unfortunately, his efforts resulted in a donut, and this certainly doesn't help his status in fantasy either. He's never been the most consistent player in terms of box score contribution, so whether or not he remains in the starting lineup doesn't really matter -- he isn't worth much inmost fantasy formats.
Wesley Johnson will draw another start Wednesday in Utah, Rowan Kavner of Los Angeles Clippers .com reports.
Head Coach Doc Rivers has been playing around with the starting lineup, attempting to find the right fit. He started Johnson for the first time on Tuesday, and is giving him another go Wednesday. He put up 11 points, two rebounds, one assist, one block, and three triples in 25 minutes of action. He will continue his attempt to earn a permanent spot in the lineup in Utah.
Johnson played well while replacing Paul Pierce at small forward Tuesday, finishing with 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist. Rivers has used seven different starting lineups so far this season, and seems inclined to mix and match based on personnel, particularly at the small forward spot. Along with Johnson and Pierce, Lance Stephenson and even Luc Richard Mbah a Moute could warrant consideration for a starting role on a given night, which will work to cannibalize the fantasy utility of all four players.
Wesley Johnson is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.
Johnson will make his first start of the season Tuesday, as Paul Pierce is set to come off the bench. Pierce is likely coming off the bench due to the fact that it's the first game of a back-to-back set and the Los Angeles Clippers may want to limit his minutes. With that being said, look for Johnson to return to a bench role in Wednesday's matchup with the Pelicans.
Wesley Johnson collected a season-high 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, and a steal over 24 minutes in Thursday's 118-104 loss to the Suns.
Johnson was able to tally season bests in scoring and minutes due to injuries wiping out the Los Angeles Clippers ' starting backcourt. The 25-year-old displayed a nice touch from three-point range by draining 50 percent of his buckets from beyond the arc, and shot a solid 46 percent from the field overall. Despite the strong night off the bench, Johnson's customary reserve role had limited him to a maximum of 22 minutes in a game prior to Thursday, with the backup guard barely reaching double-digits in floor time the majority of nights. With such limited opportunity, Johnson currently remains off the radar in virtually any fantasy league format.
