  • Johnson scored 24 points (8-10 FG, 6-7 3PT) in a 116-103 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday,. Johnson has been sneaky good since Danilo Gallinari went down, as he's taken the starting small forward role by the ears. Over his last four games, Johnson is averaging 15.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.8 steals per game. He's also playing nearly 34 minutes per game in that four-game span.

  • Johnson will start at small forward for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. The Clippers are set to be without Danilo Gallinari (hip) on Tuesday, so Johnson will take his spot in the starting five at small forward. Johnson should see a significant bump in playing time from the 18.6 minutes per game he's averaged so far this season, providing him a temporary boost in value. That being said, he'll still likely be nothing more than a three-point specialist during his stint in the top unit.

  • Johnson contributed 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes in Friday's 111-104 preseason loss to the Lakers. The veteran forward drew another start with the Clippers first team taking a seat for the night. Johnson closed out the preseason with back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts and was hot from the field for the entirety of the exhibition slate. He'll look to carry over the momentum into what should be a consistent second-team role during the regular season.

  • Johnson tallied 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 31 minutes in Thursday's 104-87 preseason win over the Kings. Johnson drew the start at small forward with Danilo Gallinari (foot) sitting and posted his second double-digit scoring effort of the preseason. The eight-year veteran has shot no less than 60.0 percent and has been especially impressive from long distance this preseason, going 8-for-9 from three-point range. Johnson could certainly see a bump in the career-low 11.9 minutes he saw last season and offer some serviceable production across the stat sheet relative to playing time.

  • Johnson will draw the start at small forward for Sunday's preseason matchup against the Trail Blazers, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Clippers are holding out Danilo Gallinari (foot) on Sunday, which allows Johnson to jump into the top unit in his place. However, Gallinari doesn't appear to be in danger of missing regular-season action, so Johnson's stay in the starting lineup should be short-lived. Johnson averaged just 11.9 minutes per game last season and likely won't be in line for a huge bump in playing time this year due to Gallinari's addition in the offseason.
