Chris Johnson scored 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with five rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 19 minutes during the Utah Jazz 's 102-73 win versus the Hornets on Wednesday.
Johnson has been earning 18 minutes per game during the month of January, and he has also seen double digit minutes in 16 of his last 18 appearances. Johnson is unlikely to see his role increase much more than it has already, but he has enjoyed a steady flow of minutes since Alec Burks (ankle) got hurt towards the end of December.
Chris Johnson (illness) played 14 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Johnson was able to battle through his illness, but he tallied just three rebounds and no other statistics besides four fouls. He has seen an uptick in playing time of late, receiving at least 10 minutes in 10 of his last 12 games after doing so just twice previously this season.
Chris Johnson is dealing with a mild case of the stomach flu, and is considered probable for Thursday's game against the Kings.
It appears unlikely that Johnson's mild illness will keep him out of any game action, but he'll still have to battle for minutes in Utah's rotation. Any fantasy owners should monitor his situation prior to game time.
The four-year pro put together a serviceable performance in place of the ailing Rodney Hood (ankle), with his five turnovers being the only blemish. Johnson was excellent from the field, and played a solid game on the defensive end as well with a pair of blocks and thefts apiece. Typically having received minutes in the single digits until late December, Johnson has seen an uptick in usage lately, averaging 17 minutes per game over his last nine contests. Outings like Saturday's could certainly earn him additional time on the floor.
Johnson will take advantage of a wing rotation without the services of Rodney Hood (ankle). In his last four games, Johnson has put up six points (on 47 percent shooting), 1.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer in 16 minutes per contest.
