Cameron Johnson is fully cleared from mononucleosis that he has been battling for the past few weeks.
Johnson missed the final three games before the league was suspended due to mononucleosis, but will be ready to go when the season starts up again. Johnson was looking at an expanded role with Kelly Oubre Jr. injured, but there is now a chance that Oubre Jr. will be ready a situation to monitor when the season gets ready to resume.

Cameron Johnson (mononucleosis) should be cleared for action if the season resumes mid-April.
Johnson missed the Suns' last three games and was scheduled to be re-evaluated in two weeks as of March 9 so the layoff should give him plenty of time to get back to full health. The rookie lottery pick was a three-point specialist in super-deep leagues, averaging 1.9 triples in 20.3 minutes. He was playing slightly more with Oubre out of the lineup but should be back around 20 minutes if the Suns return to full health.

Cameron Johnson has mononucleosis and will be reevaluated in two weeks.
Johnson had on of the best performances of his career last Tuesday but is now headed for an extended absence with his illness. Johnson can be dropped in re-draft formats and may resurface as a 3-point streamer if he returns before the fantasy season is over.

Cameron Johnson (illness) is listed out for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.
Johnson had 21 points with five 3-pointers in his last game, but he will miss his third consecutive game with an illness and isn't worth holding in standard leagues if you need to win this week since the Suns only play twice. Johnson could be streamed for threes in a pinch but hasn't shown the ability to hold standard-league value this season.

Cameron Johnson (illness) will miss Sunday's tilt with the Bucks.
Johnson also missed Friday's game. The rookie has been getting more minutes in the wake of Kelly Oubre's injury but outside of 3-pointers, he just doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy production.

Cameron Johnson (illness) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Blazers.
Cam has seen his minutes and role increase over the last couple of weeks with the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr. (knee). This doesn't seem to be anything significant so expect Johnson to return for the team's next game which is on Sunday. He could sustain value at the end of benches in standard leagues for the rest of the season for teams in need of three-pointers. Dario Šarić, Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter all candidates to see extra minutes on Friday.

Cameron Johnson put up a career-high 21 points on Tuesday vs. the Raptors on 7-of-16 shooting with five triples, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 33 minutes off the bench.
With Kelly Oubre Jr. (right knee injury) out, Johnson is getting some more looks and finding his groove. Don't get used to the blocks, but if you need a 3-point specialist, he's definitely worth a gamble.

Cameron Johnson (lower back/hip soreness) is considered probable for Tuesday's game.
Johnson has been getting minutes in the twenties of late and possesses long-range shooting ability, but he has not been a major contributor for the Suns.

Cameron Johnson (lower back/hip soreness) led all Suns reserves with 26 minutes on Saturday but didn't have much to show for them with just six points (2-of-8 shooting), four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and one steal.
Johnson is still unable to make a big splash, despite the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr., so it's best to leave on the wire until he's able to do so.

Both Cameron Johnson (lower back/hip soreness) and Aron Baynes (ribs) are available to play for the Suns on Saturday.
Johnson projects to have the better path to minutes, with Kelly Oubre Jr. out. As long as Deandre Ayton is healthy and playing (which he is), Baynes will struggle to crack deep-league value.

Cameron Johnson (lower back/hip soreness) is questionable on Saturday against the Warriors.
Johnson took a hard fall in Friday's game and made his way back into the game to finish with nine points, five rebounds and three triples in 20 minutes. There are more minutes available for Johnson with Kelly Oubre out indefinitely so hopefully he can stay on the court. The rookie is on the fantasy radar as a three-point specialist in deeper leagues as he is averaging 2.8 over the last four games in 215 minutes.

Cameron Johnson (upper body) has returned to the floor Friday against the Pistons.
He went down hard and had to make a trip to the locker room, but returned to the game before halftime. Johnson took the final heave before the buzzer and looks to be fine moving forward.

Cameron Johnson took a hard fall in the paint attempting to get a rebound in the first quarter of the Suns' game vs. the Pistons on Friday.
It looked like he took a shot in the ribs while in the air before hitting the floor with a loud smack. Johnson was doubled over on the court for a minute before heading to the Suns' locker room. An update on his status should be provided by the team soon.

Kelly Oubre Jr. will be out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee.
It was also reported that Oubre is going to get a second opinion. It is unlikely that the second opinion will reveal anything different but it could be worth holding onto him until we get confirmation. Unfortunately, it does appear that he will be out for at least a few weeks and maybe even the rest of the season. Cam Johnson, Mikal Bridges and Dario Šarić will all see more opportunity with Oubre out.

Cameron Johnson started on Monday and scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with four assists, three steals and two triples.
Johnson logged 22 minutes to Oubre's 27 so this move doesn't mean too much. He needs a lot more playing time on a consistent basis before he's on the standard-league radar.
