Amir Johnson: New season high Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded 27 points (12-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one steal during Saturday's win over Austin.

This was undoubtedly the veteran's best performance of the season, as Johnson tallied a new season high with his first time reaching the 20-point mark. It was also his fifth outing in double figures so far and over 15 games played with the Ignite, Johnson is posting 8.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.

Amir Johnson: Tallies 16 points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson tallied 16 points (8-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and five rebounds during Wednesday's loss to Agua Caliente.

The veteran nearly finished with another perfect shooting performance in this one, as Johnson has totaled double figures in now four outings this season with the Ignite. In 13 games played, Johnson is dropping 7.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per contest.

Amir Johnson: Adds 18 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson tallied 18 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one block during Sunday's win over Greensboro.

The veteran posted his highest scoring total this season as Johnson reached double figures for a second straight outing. Johnson is currently posting 6.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in seven appearances so far this year.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Active for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has been activated ahead of Game 2 against the Raptors on Monday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson hasn't taken the court so far this postseason, but with Joel Embiid's status up in the air due to a stomach bug, Johnson will be active. He could be asked to take on a sizeable role in the rotation if Embiid can't go.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Will be inactive Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is listed as inactive for Saturday's tilt with the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

Johnson was given the inactive tag for the first game of Round 2. He didn't see the court in Round 1 so the decision won't have an impact on Philadelphia's rotations.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Just misses double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, one steal and an assist across 24 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

Johnson nearly had a double-double in Wednesday's win, and he had a solid final stat line. He's had a very minimal role this season, and hasn't been fantasy relevant even in Joel Embiid's absences.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Returning to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Celtics.

As expected, with Joel Embiid (rest) back in the fold, Johnson will resume his usual role off the bench. As a reserve this season, he's averaging 3.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 9.5 minutes.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start Tuesday's contest against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Coach Brett Brown noted that the reason for starting Johnson over Boban Marjanovic was to "have some type of symmetry with our rotations." Across five previous starts this season, Johnson is averaging 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assist across 16.4 minutes.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Playing in G League Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will play in the G League Saturday but will be recalled ahead of Sunday's NBA contest against the Pacers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson is simply being sent down to get some more playing time. He'll be back in action for the 76ers on Sunday.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Plays well in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson finished with nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and a block over 20 minutes in the 76ers' loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

Johnson got his second straight start on Wednesday thanks to Philadelphia's injury-ravaged frontcourt. In those two starts, he's averaged 11.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks. He'll return to virtual irrelevance outside of the deepest leagues once the 76ers' starters can get healthy.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Cleared to play, will start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) will play and start Tuesday against the Magic, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

Johnson missed Saturday's game against the Warriors due to back soreness, but it'll be just a one-game absence for the veteran. He'll likely play an increased role with Jonah Bolden (illness) out.

March 4, 2019 01:16 PM
76ers' Amir Johnson: Still dealing with sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) did not practice Monday, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.

The veteran did not play Saturday against Golden State due to a sore back, and the same issue kept him out of Monday's session. He hasn't been ruled out of Tuesday's game against Orlando, but Johnson should be considered very much questionable until further notice.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Out with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was ruled out for Saturday's game against the Warriors due to upper back tightness, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.

Johnson played in the G League on Friday but had returned to the Sixers for Saturday's game, though he is now unavailable. Jonah Bolden will see a heavily increased role with Joel Embiid (knee) and Boban Marjanovic (knee) also sidelined.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Will play in G League Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will be sent down to the G League for playing time during the Delaware Blue Coats' game Friday, but he'll be called back up in time for Saturday's NBA game against the Trail Blazers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson himself approached the organization about playing in the G League for some extra run, and the Sixers granted his request. Johnson hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 26 and, with Joel Embiid out for about a week, Johnson likely wants to stay ready in case he's needed.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Removed from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (personal) isn't on Philadelphia's injury report prior to Saturday's game against Sacramento.

Johnson wasn't available for Thursday's contest against Golden State, but it appears he'll be ready to go Saturday if needed. He's played in just four of his teams last 14 matchups.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (personal) will not be available Thursday against Golden State, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports.

The nature of the absence is unclear, but Johnson will not be an option off the bench Thursday, and he should be considered questionable for Saturday's game in Sacramento. The veteran has seen his role drop off considerably this season, and he's appeared in just four games since the start of January.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Plays 10 minutes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (head) collected eight points (3-3 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 10 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves.

Johnson was sharp in his return to action Tuesday after missing the previous three games due to migraines. When healthy, the big man doesn't play much of a factor for the 76ers, as evidenced by his season averages of 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds across 9.3 minutes.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Doesn't play vs. New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (head) didn't take the court Sunday against the Knicks.

Johnson continues to deal with migraines, and he hasn't played in three games as a result. His next chance to return will come Tuesday against Minnesota.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Game-time decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to migraines.

Johnson hasn't played in each of his team's previous two matchups, although it's uncertain if it's due to his current role in the rotation or because of his migraines. Expect another update on Johnson's status as tipoff nears.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Plays 13 minutes in Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 13 minutes during Sunday's 129-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Johnson drew the start at center in place of Joel Embiid (knee soreness). Nevertheless, Johnson saw just the 10th-most minutes on the team, with Jonah Bolden playing 26 minutes and Mike Muscala earning 24. Even if Embiid remains sidelined for Tuesday's matchup with the Clippers, Johnson can likely be avoided across most formats.
