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.

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.

Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Scores seven in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson managed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one assist and a rebound across six minutes during Tuesday's preseason matchup against the Nuggets.

Johnson played 20 minutes per game for the Clippers last year, averaging 5.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 0.8 assists, 0.8 threes and 0.8 blocks per game. He currently sits third on the depth chart behind the oft-injured Danilo Gallinari and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. In his current role, Johnson will largely go undrafted in standard-sized leagues, but still has three-and-D value in deeper formats.

Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Exercises player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has exercised his player option for the 2018-19 campaign, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Johnson saw his role increased during the 2017-18 season with the departures of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, not to mention a myriad of injuries to wing players throughout the campaign. He started 40 of his 74 appearances, averaging 5.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 20.1 minutes. That said, he apparently would rather have a secured contract moving forward than test his luck in the open market, especially after shooting just 33.9 percent from beyond the arc on 2.4 attempts per game.

Clippers' Wesley Johnson: Bounce-back season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson tallied 5.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists over 74 games with the Clippers during the 2017-18 NBA season.

Johnson was able to bounce back from his awful 2016-17 campaign by scoring almost three more points per game and shooting 40.8 percent from the floor in 2017-18. However, he's regarded for his defensive-minded play when on the court and now heads into the final year of his contract.
