    Joe Johnson: Agrees to deal with Pistons

    Joe Johnson agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Johnson last played NBA basketball two years ago, appearing in 55 games between Utah and Houston. He wasn't effective, scoring 6.8 points on 40.6 percent from the field and 27.6 percent from distance. Johnson spent this past year dominating the Big 3 league, though that's hardly a reason to have confidence in the 38-year-old having a comeback season. With the Pistons, he'll compete with the likes of Bruce Brown, Derrick Rose, Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway for minutes in the backcourt. He could also play some minutes at forward. Unless the Pistons open up a roster spot via trade, Johnson will be competing against Christian Wood for the final spot on the team.

    Joe Johnson: Drawing interest from Detroit

    The Pistons may be the frontrunner to sign Joe Johnson, Noah Coslov of Sirius XM reports.In an interview on Sirius XM, Frank Isola of The Athletic said he's heard Detroit is "the favorite to land Joe Johnson," who's attempting an NBA comeback after spending last season in the Big3 League. The 38-year-old was easily the best player in the 3-on-3 format, but it's unclear how much of a role he'll have in the NBA at this point in his career. If he were to sign with Detroit, the veteran would compete with Bruce Brown, Derrick Rose, Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway for minutes in the backcourt.

    Joe Johnson: To work out for NBA teams

    Joe Johnson is planning on working out with the 76ers, Bucks and Nuggets, Marc J. Spears of ESPN reports.Johnson has been named the MVP of the Big 3, and his team, the Triplets, is playing in the title game Sunday. He's leading the league in points (21.9) and assists (3.9) per game, and he's also top-5 in rebounds (7.5) and steals (1.1). Johnson last played in the NBA during the 2017-18 season, seeing 21.9 minutes per game while on both the Jazz and Rockets. In that time, he averaged 6.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Though he struggled shooting the ball (40.6 FG% and 27.6 3P%), it seems that NBA teams are still interested in what he may be able to provide.

    Rockets' Joe Johnson: Struggles in Wednesday's spot start

    Joe Johnson produced five points (2-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five assists and three rebounds across 29 minutes in a 96-83 loss to the Kings.Johnson drew the start with Trevor Ariza one of four first-unit players sitting for rest, but he couldn't get much going from the field. The 17-year veteran has been modestly involved save for a few games since arriving in Houston at the trade deadline, but his presence figures to expand during the first round of the postseason at a minimum with Luc Mbah a Moute out with a shoulder injury.

    Rockets' Joe Johnson: Will pick up start in finale Wednesday

    Joe Johnson will enter the starting five for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Kings, Houston Rockets play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports.The Rockets are holding out eight regular contributors, including the likes of James Harden (ankle) and Chris Paul (rest). As a result, Johnson will be able to pick up the start and is essentially guaranteed to log more than 30 minutes barring an injury. Look for Johnson's overall production to see a fairly significant spike considering his playing time and usage will be way up for Wednesday's finale.

Johnson is currently averaging 6.9 points and 3.2 rebounds in 52 games played this season.

    Rockets' Joe Johnson: Fails to leave the bench Sunday

    Joe Johnson was a healthy scratch Sunday, perhaps earning himself a rest day.Johnson failed to see any court time Sunday after seeing limited action in the previous five games. He is a mere fringe rotation guy on his new team and holds no real value other than as a possible streaming option, but only when others around him are resting, which isn't very often.

    Rockets' Joe Johnson: Cleared to play Friday

    Joe Johnson (illness) is no longer listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Raptors, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.Johnson missed the last two games with an illness, but appears ready to get back into the action after an extended break. He'll slot back into the wing rotation and could push for minutes in the lower 20's with Ryan Anderson (hip) still sidelined. Johnson's return will likely mean less of a workload for Gerald Green.

    Rockets' Joe Johnson: Won't play Wednesday

    Joe Johnson (illness) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.Johnson missed Tuesday's contest against the Thunder due to an illness, which caused him to be initially listed as questionable for Wednesday's game. He's apparently still feeling too sick to play, however, and will sit the contest out. In his stead, Gerald Green could see solid minutes again, as he played 15 minutes Tuesday and posted six points and grabbed three rebounds.

    Joe Johnson (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against Milwaukee, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.Johnson was absent from Tuesday's contest against the Thunder as a result of an illness, which has apparently carried over in some capacity to Wednesday.
