76ers' Amir Johnson: Starting at center Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start at center in place of Joel Embiid (ankle), who is out, for Wednesday's contest against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

As has often been the case with Embiid sidelined, Johnson will find himself in the starting five. In nine contests starting at center this season, Johnson has averaged 7.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists across 19.5 minutes.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Scores five points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson chipped in five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 108-92 win over the Knicks.

Johnson saw more minutes than Joel Embiid, who coming off a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday sat out the entire fourth quarter of this one since the 76ers' lead was never threatened. Fellow backup big man Richaun Holmes has been a healthy scratch in six of the last seven games, which bodes for well for Johnson. Still, this is the first time since Dec. 30 that Johnson saw 20-plus minutes, and he's much more well known for doing the little things than filling up the box score.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Headed back to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will return to a bench role for Wednesday's matchup with the Nets.

Johnson picked up the start Monday against Milwaukee with Joel Embiid sitting out for rest, posting five points, five rebounds, two assists and a block across 18 minutes. He barely saw an uptick in his typical playing time and instead, it was Richaun Holmes (23 minutes) that picked up the extra workload. With Embiid returning to the top unit Wednesday, look for Johnson to head to the bench and he can go back to being ignored in the majority of fantasy leagues.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Starting at center Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will start at center for Monday's game against the Bucks.

The Sixers are set to be without Joel Embiid (rest) in the second game of a back-to-back, which allows Johnson to pick up the start in his place. However, in eight previous starts, Johnson has averaged just 7.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 19.7 minutes, so he's not necessarily the most intriguing DFS option for Monday's slate. Richaun Holmes is likely a slightly better option and should also benefit with Embiid out.

76ers' Amir Johnson: Logs 13 minutes in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) returned to the court for Monday's 111-117 win over the Raptors, posting seven points (2-3 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 13 minutes.

Johnson was held out of Thursday's game against the Celtics with an illness, but after some additional rest and recovery over the weekend, he was able to give it a go Monday and had a very efficient showing off the bench. That said, it was the fourth straight game Johnson has logged minutes in the teens, which appears to be his expected workload moving forward as long as Joel Embiid is healthy and in the lineup. That sort of playing time means Johnson will only be fantasy relevant for those in deeper leagues.
