Johnson scored 23 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT) while adding two rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 115-89 win over the Grizzlies.
It's his best performance so far in 2018, as Johnson hadn't topped 20 points since he poured in 31 against the Magic on Dec. 30. He's scored in double digits only six times in the last 12 games, however, and the 25-year-old will need to show a lot more consistency before he'll appear on the fantasy radar in most formats.
Johnson posted 19 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Friday's 91-85 win over the Bucks.
Johnson drew the start at two-guard and churned out a team-high scoring total in the process. The 25-year-old's point tally was his highest since the calendar flipped to 2018, while his 43.8 percent shooting was his best since Jan. 15. The versatile guard had been mired in a multi-game shooting slump prior to Friday, as he'd posted no better than a 35.7 percent success rate in the prior six games. With Dwyane Wade now in the fold, it remains to be seen how much of a hit Johnson's playing time may take, but for the moment, he retains value for his ability to generate serviceable scoring, rebounding and assist contributions.
Johnson will start at shooting guard for Friday's tilt versus the Bucks, Tom D'Angelo of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Johnson, who has been in somewhat of a slump recently, could potentially get a boost with a return to the starting lineup. However, the return of Dwyane Wade to the Heat via trade figures to ultimately cut into Johnson's playing time. Still, he should see a healthy workload against the Bucks.
Johnson scored three points (1-7 FG, 1-6 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 109-101 loss to the Rockets.
Johnson saw his most court time since returning from an ankle injury, but he was quite ineffective shooting the ball as all but one of his attempts came from long range. He chipped in respectably in other areas, but his inability to find his range left him with an uninspiring performance from a fantasy perspective. It was particularly discouraging for his fantasy value that this effort came with Wayne Ellington sidelined, making him tough to count on for consistent production as an ancillary option on offense.
Johnson will move to the bench for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The Heat will scramble the lineup Saturday, going with Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo up front, with Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson on the wing. As a result, Johnson and James Johnson will both shift to the bench, while Hassan Whiteside will sit out with an injury.
