    Cam Johnson hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 points in 31 minutes off the bench in a wild overtime win over the Pelicans on Thursday night.

    Johnson matched a career-high with 18 on the night. The upside isn't that enticing for Johnson because of his shooting-focused stat set and the presence of another highly-touted young player in Mikal Bridges (11 points in 22 minutes) competing for similar minutes, but Johnson should still be considered a 3-point specialist option.

    Mikal Bridges mustered 15 points, a rebound, an assist and a couple of 3-pointers on Wednesday night.

    Mikal didn't do much outside of score tonight. He and Cameron Johnson led the Suns in minutes off the bench with 25 each, but neither were able help outside of shooting. Johnson had 12 points on four 3-pointers. Mikal is just outside the top-150 this season, and Johnson isn't relevant in standard formats.

    Cam Johnson (illness) will be available for Monday's game.

    Johnson can hit 3-pointers which gives him streaming appeal, but he isn't playing big minutes. The Suns will be happy to have him as an option, though.

    Cam Johnson (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Hornets.

    Johnson has been getting good run off of the bench and is worth monitoring in deeper leagues. If he were to sit out Frank Kaminsky would most likely see a few extra minutes at the four.

    Cameron Johnson was dealing with some right knee soreness coming into Wednesday's game but that didn't seem to hinder him, as he scored 17 points and hit three triples in 32 minutes off the bench.

    Johnson continues to be a solid 3-point option in deep leagues and that seems like a skill that will keep him afloat in all deeper league formats. He's getting enough playing time to stay relevant so it's going to continue to be a reliable specialist play going forward.

    Cameron Johnson (right knee soreness) is available to play for the Suns on Wednesday.

    The sharpshooter should be good for anywhere from 1-4 triples in this one, depending on how on-point his shot is in his return. The Suns like playing him when he's able, so he should see a reasonable chunk of minutes off the bench.

    Cameron Johnson (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable to play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Johnson has been a top 190-210 player in 9/8 cat leagues through the first month of the season. He is a name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues in case the Suns hit a long losing streak.

    Cam Johnson (knee) logged 21 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Wolves, scoring three points on 1-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and two steals.

    Johnson might get some burn if the wheels fall off toward the end of the season for the Suns. Until then he's only worth owning in Dynasty formats.

    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (hip contusion) and Cameron Johnson (knee soreness) are both probable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    With Baynes ruled out, the Suns are in need of big men. Kaminsky will likely continue to start while Johnson will continue to launch from distance. The Suns will look to rebound after a disappointing loss to the Kings.

    Cameron Johnson put up a career-high 18 points on 7-for-13 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

    Johnson's minutes have been creeping up lately. He's played at least 19 minutes in six straight games and he's averaged 2.7 threes over that stretch. He's on the radar as a threes streamer and someone to watch in case he continues to carve out a bigger share of the minutes.

    Cameron Johnson played 20 minutes on Thursday, scoring 15 points and hitting three triples.

    Johnson played more minutes than Mikal Bridges (14) in this contest as Bridges quickly picked up five fouls. That likely won't be the norm, so we can keep Johnson on the periphery. However, he has a chance to be a 3-point specialist if there's an injury on the depth chart ahead of him.

    Cameron Johnson (left calf soreness) is not being listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game versus the Clippers.

    It looks like Johnson will make his regular season debut after a solid training camp. Johnson has to compete for minutes and would need an injury to Mikal Bridges and or Kelly Oubre to have standard league value.

    Cameron Johnson (left calf soreness) and Ty Jerome (ankle) are out vs. the Nuggets on Friday.

    Coach Monty Williams said Johnson is day-to-day but is close to returning as he was spotted earlier in the week playing 5-on-5 at practice. Jerome is still not close to returning from his right ankle sprain. Neither is standard-league relevant.

    Cameron Johnson has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets with left calf soreness.

    Johnson was spotted playing 5-on-5 at practice on Friday so he should not be too much further away from a return to action. Whenever he does get back on the court, it should not have much of an impact on the Suns' rotation. Maybe the rookie will emerge with deep-league fantasy relevance later in the season.

    Cameron Johnson (left calf soreness) is questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Johnson is still awaiting his first regular season game action after being drafted 11th overall by the Suns in 2019. He is not on the fantasy radar as it is unlikely that he can get enough minutes to warrant value in his rookie season.
