    James Johnson put up 19 points, four rebounds, three 3-pointers and a block in Sunday's loss to the Knicks.

    Johnson went 6-of-7 from the field in his 21 minutes and has been solid since getting back into the rotation. He's played in three of the last four and is 7-of-7 from deep in that time. The minutes aren't quite there but Johnson has an awesome stat set and is on the radar in deep leagues.

    James Johnson (personal) returned on Sunday and put up 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Johnson knocked down both of his attempts from beyond the arc and added six rebounds and two blocks to the box score. Johnson has only played in seven games this season with an average of 12.8 minutes per game, so it will be interesting to see what his role is once everyone is healthy.

    James Johnson will not play on Monday due to illness.

    Johnson has had a strange season, to say the least. He has barely gotten on the court and will miss this one as well.

    Pat Riley recently met with both Dion Waiters and James Johnson and emphasized the desire for a fresh start, with both players returning to the team.

    Waiters has been suspended three times this season by the team but they haven't closed the door on him playing for the organization again, while Johnson has recently been away for personal reasons after getting sent away in training camp for showing up out of shape. Neither player has been a factor at all, and the Heat would probably like to be rid of their contracts, but given the near-zero trade value it seems like Riley is going to push for the best of a tough situation.

    James Johnson (personal) is expected to rejoin the Heat for Friday's game against the Knicks.

    He won't be available on Wednesday against the Sixers, however. Johnson has only played six games this season and doesn't have much of a role so far. Meyers Leonard could lose minutes if Johnson does find his way back into the rotation.

    James Johnson (personal) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Johnson's mystifyingly poor season continues. Kelly Olynyk, Meyers Leonard and Derrick Jones Jr. will see extra minutes in the absence of Johnson. Derrick Jones Jr. has been a top-40/55 player in 9/8 cat league over the past week, and his defensive upside should keep him on the fantasy radar while he is getting the minutes.

    James Johnson (personal) has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Mavs.

    Johnson did not travel with the team and could ultimately end up missing more than one game. Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard would stand to benefit the most with Johnson out, but JJ has been on the outside looking in on the rotation for several weeks.

    James Johnson (illness) has been taken off the injury report ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Rockets after being labeled as questionable earlier on Tuesday.

    It would seem that Johnson is good to go. Johnson has been underwhelming this season and hasn't provided the stocks fantasy owners are used to from the veteran.

    Jimmy Butler (illness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Rockets.

    The flu has been making the rounds throughout NBA locker rooms recently, and Butler looks to be the latest victim of the illness. If Butler can't go, a returning Justise Winslow (probable) may get the start in his place. Winslow played his best without Butler to begin the season and would make for a sneaky DFS play.

    James Johnson came down with an illness right before tip-off and has been ruled out of Monday's contest vs. the Hornets.

    Johnson was not on the injury report ahead of tip-off and was expected to be one of the 10 men available for Monday's contest. However, he came down with an illness around tip-off and will not play in this game. Johnson is not on the fantasy radar.

    James Johnson (illness) missed his only shot attempt in two minutes in Friday's win over the Bulls.

    Johnson has been out since November 10th but has failed to deliver significant fantasy value before disappearing. Leave him on the wire for now.

    James Johnson (illness) will play on Thursday against the Cavs.

    Johnson has barely cracked the rotation as he is averaging 14.3 minutes over four contests so far this season. He is best left on the wire for now.

    James Johnson is listed as probable to play on Thursday.

    Johnson missed Tuesday's game but appears to be on the mend. He could benefit if Goran Dragic or Tyler Herro can't play but overall is not worth using in fantasy.
