Tyler Johnson: Waived by Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) was waived by the Suns on Sunday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

With roughly $7 million remaining on Johnson's deal for this season, it's somewhat of a surprising move by Phoenix, though the team had made it clear Johnson was not viewed as a part of their future. The 27-year-old averaged just 5.7 points in 16 minutes per game for the Suns, but he's expected to draw some interest around the league in what's been a fairly dry buyout and free agency market.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) won't play Saturday against the Nuggets, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

A knee injury will result in a fourth consecutive absence for Johnson. His next chance to suit up arrives Monday against the Lakers in Los Angeles.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) will not play Friday against the Rockets, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Johnson will miss a third consecutive game due to a knee injury, and he's without a firm return timetable. The Suns play on a back-to-back Saturday, so as of now it doesn't look as though Johnson will be available for that contest, either.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) will not play Wednesday against Detroit, Kellan Olson of AZSports reports.

Johnson joins a number of Suns players in street clothes Wednesday, and it'll mark his second consecutive absence with a knee issue. Expect Jevon Carter, Elie Okobo and Ricky Rubio to handle most of the point guard duties.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will not be available Monday against the Nets due to a knee injury, Duane Rankin of AZCentral.com reports.

The exact diagnosis has not been released, but Johnson will not be available as an option off the bench. Johnson has been in and out of the rotation for much of the season, but he'd played double-digit minutes in each of the Suns' last three contests.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Scoreless in 10 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 10 minutes during Sunday's 129-108 loss to the Bucks.

Johnson had been listed as probable due to knee soreness and suited up as expected. However, he was nearly invisible and remains at best a dart throw in daily leagues.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Probable with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is probable for Sunday's game against the Bucks due to right knee soreness, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Johnson is dealing with some knee soreness but will still likely take the court. Over the past two games, he's racked up 18 points, two assists, two steals and one block across 33 minutes.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Scores nine points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson tallied nine points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 111-107 loss to Oklahoma City.

Johnson saw court time for just the second time in the last eight games. He has been in and out of the lineup all season, rarely putting up numbers worthy of mentioning. He would require a combination of injuries to be considered in standard leagues and is basically an afterthought at this stage.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Healthy scratch versus Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) did not see the floor during Thursday's 121-98 win over the Knicks.

Johnson had earned double-digit minutes in three straight matchups, but he has mostly been an afterthought in the rotation over the last month and a half after hovering around 20 minutes per game through October and November.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Officially cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) will play Friday against the Thunder, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Johnson was deemed probable due to illness, and he's now officially been cleared to take the court Friday night. He's set to take on his usual bench role in Oklahoma City.

December 19, 2019 05:24 PM
Suns' Tyler Johnson: Probable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Thunder, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Johnson is on track to return Friday in Oklahoma City after missing the past two games due to an illness. He's appeared in just two games in December after falling out of the rotation at the beginning of the month, playing a combined 20 minutes and tallying two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Officially out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) will remain sidelined for Tuesday's tilt against the Clippers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Johnson was doubtful heading into the night, which renders this update relatively unsurprising. His next chance to return to the court will come Friday against the Thunder.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Not expected to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) is being considered doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Johnson hasn't seen much playing time of late due to a combination of losing his spot in the rotation while also dealing with an illness. Assuming he's officially ruled out later in the day Tuesday, his next chance to return will come Friday in Oklahoma City.

December 16, 2019 08:24 PM
Suns' Tyler Johnson: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) has officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

No surprise here, as Johnson was considered doubtful heading into the evening. His next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against the Clippers.

December 16, 2019 05:36 PM
Suns' Tyler Johnson: Doubtful with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is being considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers due to illness.

Johnson logged 16 minutes Saturday against the Spurs, but he's in danger of missing Monday's matchup. Expect clarification on his status closer to tipoff.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Loses spot in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Monday's 109-104 win over the Hornets.

Johnson had logged double-digit minutes in all 18 games this season prior to Monday, but he was squeezed out of coach Monty Williams' rotation entirely in favor of rookie Ty Jerome (ankle), who performed admirably in his NBA debut. Given that the Suns have more of a long-term investment in Jerome, a first-round pick, it wouldn't be surprising if Johnson has more DNP-CDs in his future.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Across the board effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson produced six points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes during Thursday's 124-121 loss to New Orleans.

Johnson moved into the starting lineup Thursday replacing the injured Ricky Rubio (back) who was ruled out prior to tip-off. Johnson was able to contribute across the board, albeit on little volume. He has found himself in situations such as this before and typically struggles to put up any real value. If Rubio is forced to miss additional time, Johnson could be worth a stream if you need assists and steals but there is no reason to be dropping anyone of note.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Starting at point guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start at point guard Thursday against the Pelicans, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

Johnson is set to draw his first game of the season with Ricky Rubio (back) ruled out Thursday. The Fresno State product is averaging 6.7 points and 2.1 assists over 13 contests this year.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Pops for 14 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson logged 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and two assists in 17 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Suns' 138-112 win over the Nets.

With back-to-back double-digit scoring games on his ledger, Johnson looks to have overtaken Jevon Carter as the Suns' first guard off the bench. Unfortunately for Johnson, he doesn't have much room to see his role expand from here while the starting backcourt of Ricky Rubio and Devin Booker remains healthy and exceptionally productive.

Suns' Tyler Johnson: Holding reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has come off the bench to see 19.0 minutes per game this season.

With Ricky Rubio and Devin Booker dominating most of the backcourt minutes and usage, Johnson has only managed 6.6 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per contest. It would be surprising to see his role increase moving forward, and he'll likely only hold fantasy relevance in the deepest formats.
