Johnson scored 28 points (10-19 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT) in Wednesday's 140-129 loss to the Blue Coats. He also recorded eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist.
Johnson has factored into the starting role prominently with Devon Reed spending time with the Pacers, posting multiple 20-plus point outings in the team's last seven games. It's odd to see the 6-9 forward attempt as many three pointers as he has in recent games, but his 7.4 average three-point attempts matches his previous three G League seasons with the Maine Red Claws.
Johnson generated 24 points (8-18 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, four steals and two blocks across 39 minutes Saturday against Canton.
Johnson finished the contest tied for the team lead in points after knocking down 41.7 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. Despite getting outscored by the Charge in the fourth quarter (36-31), the Mad Ants managed to come away with a 116-102 victory with the help of Johnson's contributions. The 6-9 forward has been a staple of his team's scoring attack so far this season, averaging 13.3 ppg through 29 matchups.
Johnson was waived by the Pacers on Thursday.
Johnson saw action in just four games with the Grizzlies last season and was a long shot to make the Pacers roster ahead of the upcoming campaign. Look for him to join the Pacers' G-League affiliate for the start of the season unless he surprisingly fields interest elsewhere in the NBA. There's also a chance he heads overseas as well.
Johnson received a late G-League call-up from the Grizzlies last season, ultimately seeing action in four games. However, he was let go earlier this offseason and will now join the Warriors' entry in their upcoming summer league schedule. In 44 games with the G-League's Hustle, Johnson posted averages of 16.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 27.9 minutes. With a strong showing at summer league, Johnson could earn a training camp invite.
Johnson was released by the Grizzlies on Sunday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Johnson played in just four games with the Grizzlies last season and will now released this offseason in order to open up a roster spot. Look for Johnson to try and latch on with another team prior to training camp, though he's not guaranteed a final roster spot elsewhere and is unlikely to become a relevant fantasy option.
