  • Johnson supplied 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, and eight assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Trail Blazers. Johnson logged his second double-double of the season while handing out exactly eight dimes for the fourth time. The ninth-year power forward is contributing career-high averages in rebounding (5.3), assists (4.2), and three-point shooting percentage (34.3).

  • Johnson recorded 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes during Monday's 107-82 victory over the Grizzlies. That's two nice games in a row for Johnson, who was coming of a lean spell. He has played 31 minutes in each of the last two contests, and is benefiting from Hassan Whiteside's absence. These are the types of lines we became accustomed to last season, and he will look to continue his nice run against Portland on Wednesday.

  • Johnson will start at power forward for Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs. Justise Winslow has been starting at power forward for much of the season, but really hasn't been all too effective and it appears coach Erik Spoelstra is finally ready to shake things up a bit. Instead of Winslow, Johnson will pick up the start after out-playing him off the bench recently. That being said, Johnson logged 29 minutes in each of the last two games, which was already more playing time than Winslow was receiving, so the promotion to the top unit likely won't yield a drastic increase in his workload. This could also change once Hassan Whiteside is back if coach Spoelstra likes that pairing better.

  • Johnson tallied 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3 Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Friday's 91-88 win over the Wizards. Johnson entered the game early after Justise Winslow had trouble defending two consecutive layups. He took full advantage of his 31 minutes and shot 50 percent from the floor. Johnson has the potential to show up with decent stat lines but is largely dependent on game flow to put up a good result. He's only a serviceable option at deeper leagues at this point.

  • Johnson tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 126-115 win over the Suns. Johnson continues to be one of the better sources of all-around fantasy production available. Coming into Wednesday's game, he was posting 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks across 28.8 minutes per game. While those not eye-popping numbers, it's tough to find that kind of across-the-board production from one player, especially considering he's also shooting above 50 percent from the field and 75 percent from the charity stripe.
