    Heat's James Johnson: Tallies game-high 22 points Wednesday

    James Johnson provided 22 points (8-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes during a 104-102 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.Johnson was great with a solid all-around line in just 21 minutes of action. After a seven-game stretch in which he scored in single-digits six times, he has now scored at least 16 points in the past two games. Johnson is capable of providing nice all-around stats and when scores like this he becomes quite useful.

    Heat's James Johnson: Excels in bench role with 16 points on Tuesday

    James Johnson posted 16 points (7-11 G, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and seven rebounds in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 115-112 loss to the Miami Heat.Johnson has returned to the bench but saw some extra time on the court with Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) out of the lineup on Tuesday. Johnson has ably filled in at multiple positions this season, and although the 30-year-old has had some injury struggles, he makes the most of his time when he's on the floor. Unfortunately, he just doesn't put up big numbers on a regular basis, which makes him too risky to play in most formats.

    Heat's James Johnson: Makes impact off bench versus Pistons

    James Johnson scored 18 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with seven assists, five rebounds and two steals across 29 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 111-107 loss to the Pistons.Johnson moved back into a reserve role, but he saw plenty of run with Hassan Whiteside missing from the frontcourt rotation and responded with solid multi-category production. Although Johnson has flashed the ability to contribute across the board when his usage is high, the depth of options in Miami have limited his opportunities to produce consistently. Whiteside is expected to return in short order, which will eat into Johnson's role as Kelly Olynyk occupies the four with more regularity.

    Heat's James Johnson: Heads to bench Saturday

    James Johnson will come off the bench Saturday against the Pistons, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.Johnson will shift to a reserve role as the Miami Heat go with Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo up front in the absence of Hassan Whiteside (illness). He still should see a fair share of minutes off the bench, though he's struggled to produce lately, averaging just 6.6 points on 38.9 percent shooting over his last five games.

    Heat's James Johnson: Scores eight points in Wednesday's loss

    James Johnson managed eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 91-89 loss to the Cavaliers.Johnson's struggles from the field continued, and he has gone 0-for-14 from three over the last five games. Johnson has never been known as a sharpshooter, but his field-goal percentage in January (42.6 percent) was his worst mark of any month this season. He's still useful in fantasy thanks to his well-rounded production, but Johnson's scoring numbers have left a lot to be desired lately.

    Heat's James Johnson: Ekes out double-double in Saturday's win

    James Johnson scored 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 95-91 win over the Hornets.It wasn't his strongest performance, but Johnson still came through with his fourth double-double of the season. The veteran forward is now averaging 9.3 points, 5.5 boards and 4.1 assists through 12 games in January, and while his occasional big games are enticing, he's a tough player to roster in most fantasy formats.

    Heat's James Johnson: Red-hot from field in win

    James Johnson provided 22 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists and six rebounds across 29 minutes in Saturday's 106-105 win over the Hornets.The veteran big man put up a season-high scoring total in what was only his fourth 20-point effort of the campaign. Johnson was productive in the rebound and assist categories as well, leading to one of the best all-around stat lines of his 38 games. Johnson's scoring has undeniably gone through some fluctuations, but his relatively consistent production elsewhere on the stat sheet continues to keep his fantasy value solid across all formats.

    Heat's James Johnson: Returns to starting lineup Sunday

    James Johnson is starting at power forward during Sunday's game against the Bucks.Johnson will enter the starting lineup -- pushing Kelly Olynyk to the bench -- following his one-game suspension for throwing a punch at Serge Ibaka during Tuesday's game. The forward should see his normal allotment of minutes against a Bucks team that ranks near the bottom of the league in rebounding margin.

    Heat's James Johnson: Receives one-game suspension

    James Johnson has been suspended one game for his role in an altercation with the Raptors' Serge Ibaka on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Johnson and Serge Ibaka nearly came to blows during Tuesday's contest and punches were thrown, though nothing landed. That said, it will still warrant a one-game suspension, so Johnson will be unable to take the floor for Wednesday's game against the Pacers. Look for Bam Adebayo, who posted 16 points, 15 rebounds, five blocks and three assists across 33 minutes Tuesday, to take over the bulk of the extra minutes. Johnson should be back in the lineup ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Bucks.

    Heat's James Johnson: Ejected Tuesday, could face suspension

    James Johnson was ejected in the third quarter of the Miami Heat's 90-89 win over the Raptors on Tuesday after trading punches with Toronto's Serge Ibaka. He finished the night with four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 14 minutes.Given that Johnson and Ibaka engaged in more than simple pushing and shoving to earn a pair of technical fouls and ejections, it's likely that both players will receive at least a fine for their actions, if not brief suspensions. Since the Heat play again Wednesday against the Pacers, expect an announcement on any further punishment for Johnson to come prior to that contest. If Johnson does receive a suspension, rookie Bam Adebayo, who put up 16 points, 15 rebounds, five blocks and three assists across 33 minutes off the bench Tuesday, would again be in store for extended run.
