  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Logs 13 minutes in return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (illness) returned to the court for Monday's 111-117 win over the Raptors, posting seven points (2-3 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 13 minutes. Johnson was held out of Thursday's game against the Celtics with an illness, but after some additional rest and recovery over the weekend, he was able to give it a go Monday and had a very efficient showing off the bench. That said, it was the fourth straight game Johnson has logged minutes in the teens, which appears to be his expected workload moving forward as long as Joel Embiid is healthy and in the lineup. That sort of playing time means Johnson will only be fantasy relevant for those in deeper leagues.

  • Johnson (illness) won't play Thursday against the Celtics, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Johnson is still dealing with a stomach bug that first surfaced Wednesday and will miss his first game since Nov. 18 as a result. His absence clears the way for Richaun Holmes and Trevor Booker to pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Following Thursday's game, the 76ers won't play again until Monday versus the Raptors, so there's a good chance Johnson will be healthy by that time.

  • Johnson wasn't in attendance for the 76ers' practice Wednesday due to an illness, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The 76ers will likely reevaluate Johnson at morning shootaround Thursday before determining his availability for their game later that evening against the Celtics, with whom he spent the past two seasons. With starting center Joel Embiid returning from a one-game absence due to hand and back issues to play in each of the 76ers' last three contests, Johnson has seen fewer than 20 minutes in all of those outings.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Will come off bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Updating a previous note, Johnson will now come off the bench Wednesday against the Spurs, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports. The Sixers initially confirmed that Johnson would start in place of Joel Embiid (hand), but Embiid, who was initially ruled out, will now play and start at his usual center spot. As a result, expect Johnson to play his usual, modest role of 13-18 minutes off the bench. Johnson closed December averaging 16.1 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Confirmed starter Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson will start at center for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. The Sixers reported earlier Wednesday that Johnson was expected to start if Joel Embiid (hand) couldn't play. Embiid has now been ruled out, so Johnson has officially been named his replacement in the starting five. Johnson hasn't necessarily been an overly attractive fantasy option when starting, however, posting averages of just 7.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 19.6 minutes in eight starts.
