  • Amir Johnson: Non-factor in loss

    Johnson finished with zero points, two rebounds and two assists in five minutes during Friday's 129-119 loss to the College Park Skyhawks.

    Johnson's first appearance in the second half was largely uneventful, as he didn't attempt a shot across five minutes of playing time. Overall, the 34-year-old veteran has played in eight games and is averaging just 7.2 minutes per contest.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Active for Game 2

    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.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Will be inactive Saturday

    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.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Just misses double-double

    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.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Starting Tuesday

    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.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Playing in G League Saturday

    Johnson will play in the G League Saturday but will be recalled ahead of Sunday's NBA contest against the Pacers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Johnson is simply being sent down to get some more playing time. He'll be back in action for the 76ers on Sunday.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Plays well in starting role

    Johnson finished with nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and a block over 20 minutes in the 76ers' loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Johnson got his second straight start on Wednesday thanks to Philadelphia's injury-ravaged frontcourt. In those two starts, he's averaged 11.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks. He'll return to virtual irrelevance outside of the deepest leagues once the 76ers' starters can get healthy.

    Johnson (back) will play and start Tuesday against the Magic, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Still dealing with sore back

    Johnson (back) did not practice Monday, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran did not play Saturday against Golden State due to a sore back, and the same issue kept him out of Monday's session. He hasn't been ruled out of Tuesday's game against Orlando, but Johnson should be considered very much questionable until further notice.

  • 76ers' Amir Johnson: Will play in G League Friday

    Johnson will be sent down to the G League for playing time during the Delaware Blue Coats' game Friday, but he'll be called back up in time for Saturday's NBA game against the Trail Blazers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Johnson himself approached the organization about playing in the G League for some extra run, and the Sixers granted his request. Johnson hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 26 and, with Joel Embiid out for about a week, Johnson likely wants to stay ready in case he's needed.
