Johnson tallied 24 points (6-18 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 9-11 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in 43 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 loss to the Pacers.
The 24-year-old has been on fire over his past three games, averaging 24.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.7 three-pointers and 2.0 steals in that span. Johnson had totaled just 14 points over his previous five games before his recent three-game hot streak, so it's safe to say he was able to take advantage of his extra minutes and usage with both Kyle Lowry (rest) and Fred VanVleet (rest) out of the lineup. The sixth-year forward enters the 2021 offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and he'll hope to parlay his late-season success into a new NBA contract.
Johnson scored 15 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's loss to the Mavericks.
It was the second straight double-double for the 24-year-old forward, although a far less impressive one than his 35-point eruption against the Bulls on Thursday. Johnson's scoring outburst has come out of nowhere, as he managed only 14 points combined in his prior five games, so despite his current consistent role in a threadbare Raptors rotation, the 2015 lottery pick remains little more than a DFS tournament dart.
Johnson tallied 35 points (12-22 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals across 43 minutes in Thursday's 114-102 loss to the Bulls.
Johnson turned in one of the team's best stat lines of the season in the loss. With the return of Toronto's starters in doubt for the remainder of the season, one can expect that Johnson will get every opportunity to produce in the final two games of the regular season. His 35-point performance destroys any previous highs over at least a two-year span, and it also marks his first double-double as a member of the Raptors.
Johnson will start Tuesday's contest against the Clippers.
Johnson will enter the starting five as Yuta Watanabe heads to the bench. In his previous nine starts, he's averaged 4.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 25.6 minutes.
Johnson will come off the bench Saturday against the Grizzlies.
After three straight starts, Johnson will come off the bench as Yuta Watanabe gets the nod at small forward. As a reserve this season, Johnson has averaged 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 13.2 minutes.
Johnson posted five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals and one block across 33 minutes Tuesday in the Raptors' 105-100 loss to the Clippers.
Johnson has logged 30-plus minutes in both of the Raptors' last two games while starting in place of OG Anunoby (calf), but aside from producing some decent defensive production, the 24-year-old's stat lines have mostly been empty. Toronto clearly values what the big-bodied Johnson offers as a wing and post defender, but he'll have little appeal from a fantasy standpoint even if he continues to see sizable minutes over the final week and a half of the regular season.
Johnson will start Sunday's game against the Lakers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
With OG Anunoby getting the night off to rest, Johnson will slide into the lineup for his first start since March 22. Johnson was a DNP-CD in Saturday night's 106-102 loss to the Jazz.
Johnson tallied 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes during Friday's 113-102 win over the Spurs.
Johnson saw his most minutes (21) since April 6 with fellow forwards Pascal Siakam (rest) and OG Anunoby (rest) missing Friday's game. The 24-year-old took advantage of the increased minutes by scoring his most points (13) since March 4. Johnson's full repertoire was on display, recording at least one point, rebound, assist, steal and block for just the sixth time all season.
Johnson tallied eight points (4-5 FG), five rebounds and one assist during Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.
After failing to score over 13 minutes against the Pistons on Monday, Johnson bounced back and reached the eight-point mark for a second time over the past three games. Across that span, Johnson has totaled 19 points as well as 10 rebounds.
Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Nuggets, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Monday against the Rockets and had zero points and three rebounds in 16 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with OG Anunoby (rest) back in action Wednesday. Johnson has averaged just 1.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes over his past five games despite starting three of those contests.
Johnson is starting Monday's game against the Rockets.
Johnson will return to the starting five for Monday's contest with OG Anunoby sitting out for rest purposes. Johnson has averaged 5.3 points and 2.2 rebounds over 19.5 minutes per game across his last six appearances.
Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pistons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Johnson will resume his usual bench role with Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet back in the starting five after returning from the league's COVID-19 protocols. In 30 appearances off the bench this season, Johnson has averaged 2.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 12.5 minutes.
Johnson is starting Thursday's game against the Celtics.
Johnson will join the starting lineup for the second time this season with OG Anunoby (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable. Across his past five appearances, Johnson has been held scoreless while averaging just 7.2 minutes per game.
Johnson logged two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds over 12 minutes in Sunday's 115-102 win over Orlando.
Johnson has remained in a depth role for the Raptors since his spot start against Indiana on Jan. 24, and he's continued to have a minimal impact. He didn't see much playing time against the Magic, and he's now totaled just five points, three rebounds and one assist over the past two games.
Johnson will come off the bench Monday against the Pacers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Sunday and had three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes with Kyle Lowry (toe) and Pascal Siakam (knee) sidelined, but Lowry will rejoin the starting five Monday. Johnson should still have an increased role off the bench in the absence of Siakam.
Johnson played 31 minutes and finished with three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block Sunday in the Raptors' 107-102 win over the Pacers.
With Pascal Siakam (knee) sidelined, Johnson was thrust into the starting five for the first time this season, and he predictably took a back seat on the offensive end. His 12.8 percent usage rate was by far the lowest of the Raptors' five starters, with Johnson instead focusing his efforts on the defensive end. Johnson could be in store for sizable minutes again in Monday's rematch with Indiana if Siakam sits, but the 24-year-old would be little more than a punt-play option in DFS contests.
Johnson will start at power forward for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Johnson is getting the start in place of Pascal Siakam (knee), and it will mark his first time in the starting lineup this season. The 24-year-old is averaging just 2.9 points across 14.5 minutes per game so far this season, but he'll likely have a shot at making a larger impact in Sunday's contest.
Johnson scored seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds, two steals and a block in 22 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 100-93 loss to the 76ers.
After playing only one minute in total during the Raptors' first two games this season, Johnson suddenly found himself thrust into a prominent role and delivered a high-energy performance, highlighted by a huge dunk on a put-back of a missed free throw. He likely benefitted from a strategic decision by coach Nick Nurse, as Toronto's other long, athletic forwards (Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby) also put up big numbers Tuesday, but it does suggest Johnson could be a worthwhile DFS dart throw against other teams that don't match up well with the trio, or at the very least, the next time the Raps face the Sixers.
Johnson exercised his $3.8 million player option to remain with the Raptors on Monday, Mike Scotto of HoopsHype reports.
The 2015 lottery pick didn't make much of an impact last season, but he'll take the security of the $3.8 million payday and return to Toronto in 2020-21. To date, Johnson's NBA career has been a major disappointment, but he may have a chance to carve out a larger role this season, particularly if the Raptors were to take a step back in the Eastern Conference hierarchy.
Johnson exploded for a season-high 23 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one block and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Nuggets.
Johnson came out of nowhere with this explosive performance, as his previous season-high marks were seven points (Aug. 7 against the Celtics) and 17 minutes (Jan. 7 against the Trail Blazers). The Arizona product apparently can produce when given the minutes, but he's expected to have a minimal role off the bench for the Raptors once the playoffs start.
