Keldon Johnson led the way for the Spurs in Thursday's loss to the Jazz, scoring 24 points in 30 minutes on 8-of-12 shooting.
Johnson followed up his breakout performance with another strong scoring output. The other stats were lacking in this one with just two rebounds, one triple and a steal, but we'll give it a pass as he matched his career-high on the scoring sheet for the second straight contest.

Keldon Johnson had a career night on Tuesday, putting up his first double-double with 24 points and 11 rebounds to go with three assists and three triples in 26 minutes.
Johnson has been one of the more talked about players thus far during the bubble and continued to go to work on Tuesday. He notched career-high numbers in both points and rebounds and has certainly been a pleasant surprise for the Spurs. His role is all but secure at this stage and despite a few inconsistent performances, he is worth rostering in all formats.

Derrick White (left knee contusion) is questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Rockets.
White suffered the knee injury during Sunday's game and was subsequently ruled out of the remainder of the game. The Spurs need to win all their remaining games but will also want to be careful with one of their key young pieces. Should White miss the game, players like Keldon Johnson, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli could all have some short-term value.

Keldon Johnson came off the bench on Wednesday and scored a career-high 20 points (7-of-10 from the field) with six rebounds and two threes in 26 minutes.
Johnson only played 15.0 minutes per game in 13 contests for the Spurs before the NBA restart. He's been given consistent minutes in Orlando, playing at least 20 minutes in each of the Spurs' three contests. He's scored nine, 15 and now 20 points in those three games and is a young player worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.

Bryn Forbes (quad) will miss Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
Forbes will miss another game and with no indication he is nearing a return, it is safe to roll with guys like Lonnie Walker and Keldon Johnson.

Keldon Johnson poured in a career-high 15 points on 4-of-6 shooting to go with three boards, an assist and a triple in Monday's game against the Sixers.
Johnson has now had three solid games in a row and has quickly established himself as a rotational piece for the Spurs in the bubble. Look for him to continue to get steady minutes off the bench.

Keldon Johnson cooked up nine points, six rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench on Sunday.
Johnson still got good minutes even with Patty Mills back in the equation, and the Spurs look ready to see what they have in the rookie. He's worth a look in deep leagues right now and could really hit the jets if the Spurs fall out of the playoff race.

Rookie Keldon Johnson played 30 minutes for the Spurs on Friday and was able to contribute eight points (3-of-7 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, two assists, two 3s and one steal.
The actual output that Johnson brought left a lot to be desired, but the 30 minutes he was allotted is encouraging. He has not seen much action this season but a 21-point effort in the the team's scrimmage, earned him some brownie points. He can be left on the wire for now.

Keldon Johnson ended with 21 points, three rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 118-111 scrimmage victory over the Pacers.
Johnson, who has played only nine games all season, dropped a career-high 21 points on Tuesday. The rookie is viewed highly by the Spurs coaching staff and that could result in an uptick to both his playing time and production moving forward. Over the last four games before the league went into lockdown, Johnson compiled totals of 28 points, 11 rebounds and five steals. There is no reason to make him a fantasy priority but he is someone worth keeping an eye on.

The Spurs were hesitant to use Keldon Johnson, their first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, as he appeared in just nine games this season.
Johnson averaged 4.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game in his nine contests with the Spurs. He dominated in the G League during his 31 games played, with averages of 20.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists on 53.1-percent shooting. He could see an increased role in his sophomore year, so keep an eye on his position on the depth chart heading into next season.

The Spurs have recalled Keldon Johnson for the G League on Tuesday.
Johnson will provide backcourt depth for the Spurs when they play three games in four days starting on Wednesday. With Dejounte Murray likely to sit one of those games, Johnson may see a handful of minutes. He is off the fantasy radar.

Dejounte Murray (rest) will not play on the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday versus Portland.
Murray remains on heavy restrictions after missing all of last season but still producing mid-round value in only 22.5 minutes per game. Derrick White should draw the start and the Spurs have called up Keldon Johnson for some emergency depth.

San Antonio Spurs' assistant coach Becky Hammon believes Keldon Johnson could be the "steal of the draft" after watching his play so far on offense and defense.
The No. 29 overall pick has been working out with teammates Derrick White and Dejounte Murray. The Spurs are deep at the guard position and it is unlikely that Keldon Johnson will see enough playing time this season to warrant fantasy relevance in anything outside of dynasty leagues.

Quinndary Weatherspoon tied for the team lead in scoring with 19 points in Sunday's Summer League win, adding seven rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Weatherspoon went 6-of-14 from the field and 7-of-9 at the line, while fellow rookie Keldon Johnson got his 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting and a perfect 7-of-7 from the charity stripe. Weatherspoon was taken 49th overall and is a lonshot to carve out rotation minutes in San Antonio this season, but he looks like a guy to keep an eye on given San Antonio's track record of developing overlooked guards.
July 2, 2019, 9:10 pmKeldon JohnsonG-F, San Antonio Spurs
Keldon Johnson shot 10-for-17 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line for 29 points with seven boards, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes of Summer League action on Tuesday.
The No. 29 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft dropped 29 points. Johnson averaged 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game as a freshman at Kentucky last season.
