  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks against the Nuggets on Monday.

    Johnson had a solid showing tonight and it's sad to say that lines like tonight are a rarity. He's always been a fantasy friendly player but he just hasn't been able to find his footing this season so it's hard to trust him after one solid game.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson delivered nine points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Friday's loss to the Kings.

    Johnson only played 21 minutes tonight and didn't pop like he did on Tuesday, but if he's contributing in multiple categories then his deep-league owners should be feeling alright. There's great upside here, but we're skeptical that he regains relevance in 12-team leagues.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson was moved to the bench in Tuesday's win over the Blazers, scoring 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, two steals, three blocks and one trey in 27 minutes.

    Alrighty then. Johnson has been terrible all season and then popped off with a vintage James Johnson line in this one. We have to see it again (and again, and again) and preferably he'll get some sort of assistance at the trade deadline, too.

    James Johnson (migraine) is in the starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Johnson's status was in doubt, but he appears to be alright. He's got standard format potential from game-to-game, but is just too inconsistent to be worth owning.

    James Johnson (illness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Johnson was originally available to play, but was a late addition to the injury report. He is not being used in most leagues right now, but his minutes are still valuable. If he cannot go, look for Derrick Jones Jr. to get the playing time he deserves.

    James Johnson scored 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one trey over 25 minutes in Saturday's win over the Bulls.

    Johnson needs to do this five times in a row to hit the radar in most standard formats.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson scored three points on 1-of-4 shooting with three rebounds over 16 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets.

    The athleticism hasn't been there since last year's hernia injury and until he sustains value for over a week we're just not buying it. Watch this action from the wire.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds and three treys over 28 minutes in the Heat's 115-109 win over the Wizards on Friday.

    It's too bad he didn't have an assist or a steal or a block and while it's good to see him shoot with some confidence, the ascension of Justise Winslow to point guard gives him yet another impediment to value. Factor in the post-injury lack of athleticism and we're fading his value to just deeper leagues.

  • James Johnson - F - Miami Heat

    James Johnson returned from a one-game absence (illness) on Wednesday and logged 17 minutes, 11 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Johnson can always give you a little bit of everything but until his playing time ticks up there's no need to bother outside of deep leagues. There's also the matter of Derrick Jones Jr. outplaying him lately, which throws a rather large wrench into things.

    James Johnson will return to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Derrick Jones Jr. will move back to the bench with Johnson's return. Both are just deep-league plays right now and are being crushed by Miami's depth.

    James Johnson has been removed from the injury report for Wednesday's game.

    Johnson sat out Miami's last contest with an illness but should suit up tomorrow. Derrick Jones Jr. will likely return to the bench. Both are just deep-league options, and the depth of Miami's rotation is dampening either's would-be appeal in standard formats.

    James Johnson (illness) was able to return to practice on Tuesday and is expected to play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

    Johnson's return should send Derrick Jones Jr. back to the bench. JJ has top-120 upside but he'll need to find some sort of groove before he warrants a pickup in standard leagues.

    James Johnson (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game.

    Johnson's absence should open up more minutes for the Heat's deep group of forwards, and Derrick Jones Jr. figures to start since he replaced Johnson in the second half on Friday. Give all your Heat players a marginal bump but don't expect too much.

    James Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Udonis Haslem are questionable to play on Sunday because of illnesses.

    All three are sick but only Johnson is an important part of the rotation. Derrick Jones Jr. seems likely to start if Johnson sits but is also questionable due to a migraine. Maybe Kelly Olynyk gets the call. Nobody here is really an option in 12-team leagues (besides Olynyk) but Miami's deep rotation means that a number of guys will get a few extra minutes. The ripple effects run deep, so you can give any Heat a small bump if you're considering a stream today.

    James Johnson, Wayne Ellington, and Udonis Haslem were all held out of practice Saturday with an illness.

    Ellington and Haslem do not have any impact in fantasy. Johnson left Friday's game after only playing eight minutes and should be considered questionable for Sunday. Derrick Jones Jr. (migraine) started for Johnson in the second half, but is also questionable for Sunday's game. With some bug going around the Heat, the healthy players should be able to get extended run Sunday.
