Johnson is probable for Friday's game against Miami due to right hamstring soreness. Johnson is nursing some minor hamstring soreness but the Pistons expect him to be able to play through it. He's been struggling to put up productive totals of late, averaging just 2.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 steals over his previous three contests off the bench.
Johnson produced 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes during Thursday's 112-102 loss to Sacramento. Johnson saw some additional playing time with Blake Griffin (rest) out and the game going into garbage time late. Johnson has been a disappointment this season and despite this performance, should be left for deeper formats only.
Johnson managed four points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 14 minutes during Saturday's 110-105 loss to the Jazz. Johnson (quad) was removed from the injury report prior to Saturday's matchup, and saw his minutes increase from six to 14 in this his second game back after missing Tuesday's tilt versus the Bucks. Johnson's defensive versatility still helps him find his way onto the floor, but poor shooting percentages and modest per-game averages limit his fantasy value to deeper leagues.
Johnson (quad) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's tilt against the Jazz, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports. Johnson was previously listed as probable, so his availability isn't surprising. He played just six minutes during the Pistons' previous contest after returning from an injury. It's possible he sees more run this time around.
Johnson is expected to play Saturday against the Jazz despite a bruised left Quadriceps. Johnson is still recovering from a Quadriceps injury suffered earlier in the week, but he logged six minutes in Wednesday's contest and should manage to play through the injury. However, given his limited availability in Detroit's previous matchup, he may be held to a minutes restriction to prevent further damage.
