Johnson will start Thursday's game against Indiana, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. With Kyrie Irving (groin) out, the Nets will roll out their 34th unique starting lineup of the season. Johnson will fill in at one guard spot, while Landry Shamet, Joe Harris, Kevin Durant and Jeff Green make up the rest of the starting five.
Johnson (knee) posted eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two assists and a rebound across 16 minutes in Sunday's 128-119 win over the Suns. Johnson was back in action after missing 10 games with a knee injury. The Fresno State product is one of the better three-point shooters on the team, and as he eases back into action, he could help fill some of the void left by James Harden's (hamstring) extended absence. The Nets need a playmaker off the bench who can make shots off the ball, and Johnson seemingly fits that profile better than most of the team's reserve guards.
Johnson (knee) will play Sunday against Phoenix, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. Johnson will return as expected from a 10-game absence due to a sprained right knee. Johnson has averaged 16.8 minutes per game so far this season, but may not see quite that many minutes in his first game since April 4.
Johnson (knee) is probable for Sunday's contest against the Suns, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. After a 10-game absence, Johnson is likely to make his return and see backup guard minutes. However, he could be on a minutes limit in his first game back.
