Wesley Johnson: Bound for Greece
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a one-year contract Monday with Greek club Panathinaikos, Eurohoops.net reports.

After being waived by the Wizards in April, Johnson found a light market for his services this offseason and will look to keep his career going overseas. The 32-year-old, who averaged 3.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.7 triples in 14.1 minutes per game across 38 appearances between Washington and New Orleans in 2018-19, could resurface in the NBA if he impresses with the Greek club.

Wesley Johnson: Let go by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was waived by the Wizards on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Johnson will become a free agent after averaging 3.4 points and 1.9 rebounds over 38 games across stops with the Pelicans and Wizards this season.

Wizards' Wesley Johnson: Plays seven minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson managed three points (0-1 FG, 3-3 FT) and one rebound in seven minutes during Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.

Johnson has appeared in only four games thus far in March and has been limited to single-digit minutes in each of them. As the regular season winds down and the Wizards fall out of playoff contention, Johnson is unlikely to receive many minutes across the last nine games of 2018-19.

Wizards' Wesley Johnson: Finds home in Washington rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson played 25 minutes and contributed six points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block Monday in the Wizards' 121-112 loss to the Pistons.

Expectations were low for Johnson after the Wizards acquired him from the Pelicans prior to last week's trade deadline, but the veteran swingman has surprisingly claimed a rotation spot immediately for his new club after being an afterthought in New Orleans for much of the season. The 31-year-old has played ahead of Sam Dekker in each of his first three contests with the Wizards and has seen his playing time pick up in each successive game. It's unlikely he'll see his role expand much further from here, but the fact that Johnson has seemingly secured a solid second-unit role might be enough to keep him on the radar in 18-team leagues or deeper.

Wizards' Wesley Johnson: Available to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will be available to play Friday against Cleveland.

After being acquired from New Orleans on Thursday, Johnson will reportedly be able to participate in the Wizards' contest against the Cavaliers on Friday if given the chance. It's unknown currently what role Johnson will serve with the Wizards though, but nevertheless, the Syracuse product doesn't hold any fantasy value since he's averaging a mere 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds per game this season.

Wizards' Wesley Johnson: Dished to Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was traded from the Pelicans to the Wizards on Thursday in exchange for Markeiff Morris (neck) and a 2023 second-round pick, David Aldridge of The Athletic reports.

Johnson has appeared in just nine games since the beginning of December, so it's no surprise to see him moved. While his role with the Wizards remains undetermined, Johnson doesn't figure to hold any fantasy value even with consistent run, as he averaged just 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds across 14.5 minutes with the Pelicans before being traded.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Yet to play in January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) failed to leave the bench Wednesday in the Pelicans' 98-94 loss to the Pistons.

It's far from surprising Johnson didn't play any minutes in a closely-contested game, as the veteran forward has struggled to see action even in blowouts these days. In fact, Johnson has yet to play at all in January and has just seven of New Orleans' last 25 games. Johnson's odds of cracking the rotation will increase Thursday in Oklahoma City with Nikola Mirotic (calf) and E'Twaun Moore (rest) joining Anthony Davis (finger) in street clothes, though it remains unwise to bet on him logging significant run.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Scoreless in seven minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson went scoreless (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in seven minutes during Friday's 114-112 win over the Mavericks.

Johnson hadn't appeared in the last three games, and he has seen the court in only three of the last 10 tilts. Even on a team lacking in the depth department, Johnson is barely part of the rotation.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Plays 15 minutes in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, and one steal in 15 minutes during Sunday's 119-109 win over the Hornets.

Johnson moved into the starting lineup with E'Twaun Moore (calf) sidelined. However, Johnson spent most of the game on the bench while backup small forward Darius Miller went off for 13 points on four-of-seven from the field and two-of-five from beyond the arc. Johnson is best reserved for use in the very deepest leagues, as his ability to defend at a high level and knock down a three-pointer here and there doesn't translate well for fantasy purposes.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Likely to move into starting five Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is expected to start Sunday's game against the Hornets in place of E'Twaun Moore (calf), Pels' studio host Daniel Sallerson reports.

Moore has been ruled out with a calf issue, and while nothing is set in stone at this point, coach Alvin Gentry intimated that Johnson will get the nod at small forward in his place. Johnson played eight minutes Friday against the Heat and nine minutes Wednesday against Washington, but the promotion to the starting five should mean a bump in playing time.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start Saturday against the Nuggets.

With Elfrid Payton (finger) needing surgery, Johnson will re-enter the starting five. He's averaging 5.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 19.9 minutes.

November 16, 2018 07:31 PM
Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will come off the bench Friday against the Knicks, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

With Elfrid Payton (ankle) returning to the starting five, Johnson will be pushed back to his usual bench role. He has scored in double-digits just once this season.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Well-rounded line in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson managed five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 107-100 loss to the Timberwolves.

Johnson finished with season highs in rebounding, assists, and minutes while handing out more dimes in this one than he had in his first eight appearances combined (four). Given the team's lack of depth at small forward, Johnson seems like a good bet to continue earning quality minutes as the starter, though he has always been a modest contributor in terms of counting stats.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Unimpressive in start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had just three points, five rebounds, and one block in 21 minutes during Saturday's 109-95 loss to the Spurs.

Johnson moved into the starting lineup as coach Alvin Gentry shuffled the rotation with Elfrid Payton (ankle)missing yet another game. Despite the promotion, Johnson failed to put up anything close to resembling fantasy production. He does have some defensive upside when afforded enough playing time but at this stage, it appears unlikely he is going to be able to get anywhere near enough minutes. Leave him on the wire everywhere.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start Saturday against the Spurs, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

With Anthony Davis (elbow) available, coach Alvin Gentry will opt to send Tim Frazier to the bench, slide Jrue Holiday down to point guard and insert Johnson at small forward. Johnson has played two games for the Pelicans so far, totaling nine points, two rebounds, two steals and a block in 25 minutes.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Yet to play for Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is yet to see the floor for the Pelicans since coming over from the Clippers.

The Pelicans acquired Johnson from Los Angeles just before opening night, but he's yet to appear in any of the team's first three contests. At this point, it's unclear if the team is just taking its time getting Johnson up to speed, or if he'll end up being a fringe-rotation player going forward. While three straight DNP-CDs aren't the most encouraging sign, the Pelicans traded for Johnson for a reason, and it's likely he'll eventually find some minutes on the wing behind E'Twaun Moore and Solomon Hill.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Remains inactive Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Friday's game against the Kings, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

Johnson will be held out for the first two games of the regular season after being traded to the Pelicans on Tuesday. His next chance to take the court with his new team will come Tuesday at home against the Clippers.

Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) will be inactive for Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets, Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune reports.

Johnson hasn't had enough time to get acclimated with his new team after being traded to New Orleans from Los Angeles earlier this week. As a result, he'll get the night off and could potentially miss Friday's game against the Kings as well considering it's only a couple of days later. Look for another update to be provided on his availability following Thursday's practice.

October 17, 2018 12:04 AM
Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Doubtful for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is unlikely to be available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Rockets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

Johnson was just traded to the Pelicans on Monday, so he likely won't have enough time to travel and get comfortable in his new city. As a result, it seems unlikely the forward will be ready to give it a go Wednesday for the opener, which makes Friday's tilt with Sacramento Johnson's next opportunity to make his debut. Keep an eye out for additional updates later this week. Johnson will be competing for minutes as a depth piece on the wing.

October 17, 2018 12:04 AM
Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Headed to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was traded to the Pelicans on Tuesday in exchange for Alexis Ajinca, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Due to injuries, Wesley Johnson started 40 games for the Clippers over the course of the 2017-18 season, but with the team acquiring Luc Mbah a Moute this offseason, his role was likely going to be slightly diminished. Now, in New Orleans, Johnson gives the team some much-needed depth on the wing. He will likely start the season in a limited role off the bench, but Johnson has the talent to compete with the likes of Darius Miller and Solomon Hill for quality minutes behind E'Twaun Moore.
