Stanley Johnson: Waived by Bulls
Johnson was waived by the Bulls on Saturday, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.
Johnson appeared in four preseason games this year and averaged 3.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per contest. He played in 61 games with the Raptors last year and will have to search for a new club ahead of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Stanley Johnson: Joins Chicago
Johnson agreed Monday on a contract with the Bulls, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
If Johnson secures a spot on the Bulls' season-opening roster, he'll likely be on the outside looking in for a rotation spot, given Chicago's ample depth at forward. The 25-year-old averaged 4.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals in 16.5 minutes per game over 61 appearances with the Raptors in 2020-21.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Dishes out career-high seven dimes
Johnson tallied 24 points (6-18 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 9-11 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in 43 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 loss to the Pacers.
The 24-year-old has been on fire over his past three games, averaging 24.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.7 three-pointers and 2.0 steals in that span. Johnson had totaled just 14 points over his previous five games before his recent three-game hot streak, so it's safe to say he was able to take advantage of his extra minutes and usage with both Kyle Lowry (rest) and Fred VanVleet (rest) out of the lineup. The sixth-year forward enters the 2021 offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and he'll hope to parlay his late-season success into a new NBA contract.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Double-double in Friday's loss
Johnson scored 15 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's loss to the Mavericks.
It was the second straight double-double for the 24-year-old forward, although a far less impressive one than his 35-point eruption against the Bulls on Thursday. Johnson's scoring outburst has come out of nowhere, as he managed only 14 points combined in his prior five games, so despite his current consistent role in a threadbare Raptors rotation, the 2015 lottery pick remains little more than a DFS tournament dart....

Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Blows up for 35 points
Johnson tallied 35 points (12-22 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals across 43 minutes in Thursday's 114-102 loss to the Bulls.
Johnson turned in one of the team's best stat lines of the season in the loss. With the return of Toronto's starters in doubt for the remainder of the season, one can expect that Johnson will get every opportunity to produce in the final two games of the regular season. His 35-point performance destroys any previous highs over at least a two-year span, and it also marks his first double-double as a member of the Raptors.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Starting Tuesday
Johnson will start Tuesday's contest against the Clippers.
Johnson will enter the starting five as Yuta Watanabe heads to the bench. In his previous nine starts, he's averaged 4.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 25.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Coming off bench
Johnson will come off the bench Saturday against the Grizzlies.
After three straight starts, Johnson will come off the bench as Yuta Watanabe gets the nod at small forward. As a reserve this season, Johnson has averaged 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 13.2 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Does little in big minutes
Johnson posted five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals and one block across 33 minutes Tuesday in the Raptors' 105-100 loss to the Clippers.
Johnson has logged 30-plus minutes in both of the Raptors' last two games while starting in place of OG Anunoby (calf), but aside from producing some decent defensive production, the 24-year-old's stat lines have mostly been empty. Toronto clearly values what the big-bodied Johnson offers as a wing and post defender, but he'll have little appeal from a fantasy standpoint even if he continues to see sizable minutes over the final week and a half of the regular season....

Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Starting for Anunoby
Johnson will start Sunday's game against the Lakers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
With OG Anunoby getting the night off to rest, Johnson will slide into the lineup for his first start since March 22. Johnson was a DNP-CD in Saturday night's 106-102 loss to the Jazz.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Playing time increases
Johnson tallied 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes during Friday's 113-102 win over the Spurs.
Johnson saw his most minutes (21) since April 6 with fellow forwards Pascal Siakam (rest) and OG Anunoby (rest) missing Friday's game. The 24-year-old took advantage of the increased minutes by scoring his most points (13) since March 4. Johnson's full repertoire was on display, recording at least one point, rebound, assist, steal and block for just the sixth time all season.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Adds eight points off bench
Johnson tallied eight points (4-5 FG), five rebounds and one assist during Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.

Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Returns to bench
Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Nuggets, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Monday against the Rockets and had zero points and three rebounds in 16 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with OG Anunoby (rest) back in action Wednesday. Johnson has averaged just 1.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes over his past five games despite starting three of those contests.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Starting Monday
Johnson is starting Monday's game against the Rockets.

Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Coming off bench
Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pistons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Johnson will resume his usual bench role with Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet back in the starting five after returning from the league's COVID-19 protocols. In 30 appearances off the bench this season, Johnson has averaged 2.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 12.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Starting Thursday

Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Limited output off bench
Johnson logged two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds over 12 minutes in Sunday's 115-102 win over Orlando.
Johnson has remained in a depth role for the Raptors since his spot start against Indiana on Jan. 24, and he's continued to have a minimal impact. He didn't see much playing time against the Magic, and he's now totaled just five points, three rebounds and one assist over the past two games.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Returns to bench Monday
Johnson will come off the bench Monday against the Pacers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Sunday and had three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes with Kyle Lowry (toe) and Pascal Siakam (knee) sidelined, but Lowry will rejoin the starting five Monday. Johnson should still have an increased role off the bench in the absence of Siakam.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Stanley Johnson: Offers little offense in spot start
Johnson played 31 minutes and finished with three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block Sunday in the Raptors' 107-102 win over the Pacers.
With Pascal Siakam (knee) sidelined, Johnson was thrust into the starting five for the first time this season, and he predictably took a back seat on the offensive end. His 12.8 percent usage rate was by far the lowest of the Raptors' five starters, with Johnson instead focusing his efforts on the defensive end. Johnson could be in store for sizable minutes again in Monday's rematch with Indiana if Siakam sits, but the 24-year-old would be little more than a punt-play option in DFS contests.... See More ...
