James Johnson drew the start on Tuesday night but played just 14 minutes in an overtime loss, finishing with six points, three rebounds, an assist and a steal.
Johnson just can’t seem to find his footing this season. His ability to pitch in across the board means he can roll out of bed and pick up top-150 value but it’s a far cry from the middle-round numbers he was delivering last season. There’s still time for JJ to go on a run but owners shouldn’t get their hopes up. It’s possible he’s moved back to the bench after this one, as he and fellow starting forward Luke Babbitt combined to play only 20 minutes. Bam Adebayo saw just four as the Heat found some other hot hands in their deep rotation.
