Top James Johnson News

  • Nets' James Johnson: Waived to make room for Edwards

    Johnson (illness) was waived by the Nets on Thursday, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

    Despite Johnson being in the rotation all year -- 19.2 minutes per game in 62 appearances -- he'll be waived to allow Kessler Edwards to be signed to a full deal, as two-way players can't play in the play-in tournament. Still, it's a surprising move given the other frontcourt players on Brooklyn not seeing minutes lately -- namely, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Out vs. Rockets

  • Nets' James Johnson: Questionable for Tuesday

    Johnson is questionable for Tuesday's game against Houston due to a non-COVID illness, Alec Sturm of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Johnson is in jeopardy of missing his first contest since Feb. 17. If he's sidelined, Kessler Edwards and Blake Griffin would likely both be candidates for increased roles.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Efficient night off bench

    Johnson amassed 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and five blocks over 22 minutes during Thursday's 129-100 win over the 76ers.

    It was a sharp performance from the veteran forward, who had managed only nine points total in the last three games after shifting back to the second unit following Kevin Durant's return to action. The five blocks were a season high for Johnson while the three made threes tied his season high, but his inconsistent production makes him little more than a DFS dart throw for fantasy purposes.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Shifts to bench

    Johnson will come off the bench Thursday against Miami.

    The 35-year-old started in his past five appearances and was productive with averages of 10.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists in 29.0 minutes, but Kevin Durant (knee) is making his return to the court Thursday. Johnson should still be a rotational piece off the bench but is unlikely to have much fantasy viability going forward.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Leads Nets with 19 points Tuesday

    Johnson contributed 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 109-108 loss to the Raptors.

    Johnson popped for a team-high 19 points, something that feels wrong to be saying out loud. Thanks to injuries and player absences, Johnson has been able to carve out a reasonable role for himself, putting up adequate production along the way. Kevin Durant is slated to return from a knee injury in the next game and that alone could signal the end of Johnson's run as a 12-team consideration.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Starting Thursday

    Johnson is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Celtics, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Johnson was sidelined for the Nets' loss to the Wizards prior to the All-Star break due to a wrist injury, but he's back with the starting five for Thursday's tilt with Boston. He's averaging 5.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 19.3 minutes per game this season.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Not on injury report

    Johnson (wrist) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Celtics, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Johnson was a late scratch for Brooklyn's final game prior to the All-Star break, but he'll be back in action against Boston. He scored in double figures in three of his five appearances prior to his absence, and he averaged 11.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 23.6 minutes per game during that time.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Late scratch Thursday

    Johnson won't be available for Thursday's game against Washington due to right wrist soreness.

    Johnson's status for Thursday's matchup wasn't revealed until right before tipoff, so it's unclear as to when the injury popped up. Blake Griffin, Kessler Edwards and LaMarcus Aldridge could get extra run with Johnson out.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Solid performance in start

    Johnson provided 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 111-106 victory over the Knicks.

    Johnson drew his sixth start of the season as Kessler Edwards shifted to the bench. The veteran missed all three of his three-point attempts but was still able to register his ninth double-digit scoring outing of the campaign. It was also just the second time this season that Johnson finished with at least 10 points, five rebounds and five assists in the same game. As long as Kevin Durant (kne) and Ben Simmons (not injury related) remain sidelined, Johnson figures to be a key part of coach Steve Nash's rotation.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Starting Wednesday

    Johnson is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Good to go Monday

    Johnson (knee) is available for Monday's game versus the Kings, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Johnson was labeled as questionable for Monday due to a bruised right knee, but he's been cleared to take the court for the Nets. He's averaged 9.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 22.8 minutes over the past five games, though the returns of Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) and LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) could affect his opportunities in the frontcourt.
