Johnson has been activated ahead of Game 2 against the Raptors on Monday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Johnson hasn't taken the court so far this postseason, but with Joel Embiid's status up in the air due to a stomach bug, Johnson will be active. He could be asked to take on a sizeable role in the rotation if Embiid can't go.
Johnson is listed as inactive for Saturday's tilt with the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. Johnson was given the inactive tag for the first game of Round 2. He didn't see the court in Round 1 so the decision won't have an impact on Philadelphia's rotations.
Johnson finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, one steal and an assist across 24 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Bulls on Wednesday. Johnson nearly had a double-double in Wednesday's win, and he had a solid final stat line. He's had a very minimal role this season, and hasn't been fantasy relevant even in Joel Embiid's absences.
Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Celtics. As expected, with Joel Embiid (rest) back in the fold, Johnson will resume his usual role off the bench. As a reserve this season, he's averaging 3.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 9.5 minutes.
Johnson will start Tuesday's contest against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. Coach Brett Brown noted that the reason for starting Johnson over Boban Marjanovic was to "have some type of symmetry with our rotations." Across five previous starts this season, Johnson is averaging 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assist across 16.4 minutes.
