Cam Johnson (left patella tendinopathy) is probable to face the Mavs on Thursday.
The Suns have exceeded expectations in the seeding games and Johnson is no exception, returning sixth-round value thus far. We can pencil him into lineups but monitor the news as we should learn more prior to Thursday's 1:00 PM PST tip-off.

Cameron Johnson knocked down two 3s (2-for-2 3PT) on Saturday and finished with 14 points, three rebounds and a block.
Johnson saw 27 minutes of action in this one, which was actually his second-fewest amount in Orlando. The Suns don't lean too heavily on their wing players but they obviously need them in order to reach the heights they wish to reach, whether it be this year or in future seasons. It's clear Johnson is talented, but it's not clear to what extent yet after his rookie campaign.
August 6, 2020, 6:53 pmDeandre AytonC, Phoenix Suns
Deandre Ayton finished Thursday's win with 23 points (11-of-18) and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes while Cam Johnson posted 14 points (5-of-13) and a team-high 12 rebounds in 36 minutes.
Johnson has been very impressive in the resumption league, providing top-50 value while Ayton is a third-round asset through the first four games. Johnson struggled from distance, going just 2-of-9, but did chip in with three assists, one steal and one turnover. Johnson is firmly on the standard league radar ahead of the 2020-21 season. Ayton had six defensive stats in the contest, something that makes fantasy GMs very happy as he has averaged a combined 3.1 steals and blocks so far in his sophomore season. If he can stretch the floor consistently while increasing his defensive stats, Ayton could improve upon the 28/21 per-game value that he had this season.

Cameron Johnson played 40 minutes in a 117-115 win over the Mavs on Sunday and put up 19 points with a career-high 12 boards.
Johnson led the Suns in minutes and got the first double-double of his career. He shot 6-of-11 from the field and knocked down four 3-pointers. Johnson has a shot for top-100 value for the remainder of the season since Kelly Oubre Jr.’s injury has opened up a starting spot for him. He has a knack for shooting and has the length to rebound well, so we could see him put up solid numbers if his role remains the same.

Cameron Johnson started at power forward for the Suns on Friday and was reasonably effective as he put up 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, adding three rebounds, two assists, one trey and one steal in 25 minutes.
He's a notable sharpshooter and the Suns want his floor-spacing ability to make things easier for Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton. Johnson went just 1-of-3 from deep tonight, but that should improve as he gets more accustomed to his new role.

Cameron Johnson went 4-of-8 from the perimeter, ending with 19 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Raptors.
Johnson moved into the starting lineup with Dario Saric (ankle) sidelined, scoring an impressive 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting. The rookie is yet to find a consistent role with the Suns but certainly looks to have the makings of a solid role player. The injury to Saric doesn't appear to be too serious and so Johnson's stay with the opening five could be short-lived.

Cameron Johnson, a rookie forward out of the University of North Carolina, had a solid rookie season, landing in the top-250 in both 8/9-cat.
Johnson put up decent season averages but got it going more as the season wore on. Over a stretch that included seven games to conclude his season, Johnson averaged 10.4 PPG, 2.6 RPG and 2.6 threes a night. He shot right around 40 percent from beyond the arc for the year (91-for-229) and should continue his development alongside the rest of the Suns' young pieces in Phoenix next year. Knocking down the 3-pointer seems to be his best attribute.
June 17, 2020, 4:20 pmKelly Oubre Jr.SF, Phoenix Suns
According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, Kelly Oubre Jr. will be sidelined for the resumption of the 2019-20 season as he continues to rehab from a torn right meniscus.
It was reported in early June that Oubre would be able to take the floor when the season resumes in Orlando. However, it appears as if Oubre would have to wait until 2020-21. If Oubre is out once the season resumes, Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson are expected to soak up most of the minutes at the small forward position.

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.
