Celtics' Amir Johnson: Has option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had his 2016-17 option picked up by the Celtics on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Johnson's $12 million contract will now be guaranteed for the season, locking him in for at least one more year in Boston. The 29-year-old averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.1 blocks, and 0.7 steals in 23 minutes per game during 79 games with Boston. Johnson could see a decrease in fantasy production this season with the addition of Al Horford, but should still compete with Jonas Jerebko and Kelly Olynyk for minutes at power forward.

Celtics' Amir Johnson: Nice line in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amir Johnson posted nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), nine boards, three blocks, a steal and an assist in Sunday's home win versus Atlanta.

Johnson came up big in the key Game 4 win, helping Boston tie the series. The C's are leaning on Johnson as their only big in various small-ball lineups. Jared Sullinger's poor defense is proving to be a liability versus Atlanta and Kelly Olynyk faced limited minutes due to his shoulder injury. Expect more big minutes from Johnson during Game 5 in Atlanta.

Celtics' Amir Johnson: Scores team-high 14 points in Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson finished with 14 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, and one block in 21 minutes during the Celtics' 89-72 Game 2 loss to the Hawks on Tuesday.

Johnson was one of only three Celtics to shoot 50 percent or better from the field, and his effort on both ends almost single-handedly kept his team in the game. Unfortunately, the Celtics are best served when Johnson is serving as a complementary source of offense rather than a primary one, which often works to limit his production most nights. Given that Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) missed Game 2 and could be sidelined again Friday in Game 3, Johnson may be in line for increased playing time.

Celtics' Amir Johnson: Posts six points, seven rebounds, two blocks Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amir Johnson had six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 25 minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 104-97 win against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Johnson committed four fouls and three turnovers, but he still managed to post an on-court +/- of +8 in the Celtics' win. Johnson has seen at least 24 minutes in 10 of the last 11 games, and his ability to play both power forward and center allows him to see decent minutes despite the team's frontcourt depth. With that being said, Johnson is known for doing the dirty work and being a good glue-guy, not for putting up gaudy stats on a regular basis.

Celtics' Amir Johnson: Double-doubles with full line Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amir Johnson posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-4 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists, two blocks, and one steal in 34 minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 91-79 win versus the Raptors on Wednesday.

That's back-to-back double-doubles for Johnson, who has also seen exactly 34 minutes in each of the last two games. Johnson now has seven double-doubles in 2015-16, three of which have come in March. Jae Crowder (ankle) being injured has potentially played a part in Johnson seeing increased burn lately, and that could continue for another week. However, he has gotten 30 minutes or more just 10 times this season, and Johnson is somewhat of a risky option outside of deeper leagues.
