Johnson posted 19 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 106-96 win over the Hornets.
Johnson continued his strong summer league with an efficient scoring performance in this one. His ability and desire to play hard and attack the rim is a good sign for him going forward. Nevertheless, on a deep team with playoff aspirations Johnson is fairly likely to spend a significant portion of his rookie year honing his craft in the G League.
Johnson (rest) won't play in Wednesday's summer league game against Utah, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.
Johnson will get a well deserved day off Wednesday. Through two summer league games, the former Kentucky Wildcat's averaging 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 22.0 minutes while shooting a blistering 58 percent from the floor. There's a good chance he'll return during the Las Vegas session Friday.
Johnson was selected by the Spurs at No. 29 in the 2019 NBA Draft via the Raptors.
Johnson produced 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds across 30.7 minutes per game as a Freshman at Kentucky. He will have a hard time finding playing time right away, but has potential to eventually earn a reserve role through his defensive prowess.
