Stanley Johnson

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson (left ankle contusion), traded twice, failed to make the leap to the next level once again this season, finishing in the 275 range on a per-game basis.

    Johnson’s per-36 numbers would definitely be usable (14.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.6 threes on the Pelicans), but he was only able to get on the court for 20 mpg in Detroit and less than 14 mpg in New Orleans (Johnson did not play during his brief stint in Milwaukee). Depending on what the Pelicans do this summer, Johnson could be a free agent. There’s still hope that he could be a useful rotation player in the right situation as he enters his age-23 season.

    Stanley Johnson will miss Tuesday's game with the Warriors because of a left ankle contusion.

    Johnson has missed the last two games. Solomon Hill and Kenrich Williams are pretty much the only forwards left on the roster, so they're your targets if you want to stream.

    Stanley Johnson (left ankle contusion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings.

    With Johnson out, we may be in for a lot of Ian Clark, Elfrid Payton and Kenrich Williams once again.

    Stanley Johnson (left ankle contusion) will miss Friday’s game vs. the Suns.

    There aren’t many healthy bodies left in New Orleans and with Johnson missing Friday’s game, it’ll be Kenrich Williams, Ian Clark and Dairis Bertans left to compete for usage.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson produced a low-end line of 10 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes on Thursday against the Kings.

    Johnson got some extra run with Darius Miller (thigh) leaving the game for good at halftime. He'll be a steals specialist for the truly desperate, though the sheer lack of healthy players on the roster might tilt the calculus in his favor ever so slightly. Don't get too excited though.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson put up 13 points with five rebounds on 6-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes in a blowout loss to the Rockets on Sunday.

    Johnson is a project that did not work out well for the Pistons and it seems as though he will not work out for the Pelicans either. This was nothing more than a fluke performance and he can be left on the wire in all formats.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson took advantage of garbage time in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Magic and tallied 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, two 3s and two steals in 27 minutes.

    There's very little to read into line beyond it being an outlier performance from Johnson, who has not been fantasy-relevant lately. Leave on the wire.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson registered a DNP-CD in Friday's win against the Suns.

    Johnson isn't even in the rotation on his new team.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson has primarily played both forward positions in his NBA career so far, but the Pelicans are giving him a chance to be the part time point guard in their offense.

    As the Pelicans focus on younger players and those in which the team has to make decisions on this summer, some of them, like Johnson, are getting opportunities they haven’t had before. Stanley has been a mixed bag with New Orleans so far, with four turnovers against the Pacers and three assists with just one turnover against the Lakers. He said the idea came about when he was practicing after the All-Star break and he started making plays, and the team then just asked him to actually play the point. This looks like a great tanking strategy and it’s highly unlikely that it impacts Johnson’s value but you can keep an eye on this development in deeper leagues.

    Stanley Johnson saw just eight minutes of action off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Johnson could get some run during silly season but even then we're not sure he'd produce. Watch this action from the wire.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson logged 20 minutes off the bench in his Pelicans debut on Friday and was quiet with just six points, two rebounds and one steal to his name.

    Darius Miller had an off night with 2-of-10 shooting for five points (one 3), two rebounds and three assists but still logged 30 minutes. Johnson will have to fight tooth and nail for his minutes being the new guy, so we suggest to wait for that moment before grabbing him right now.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson and Jason Smith will be available to play on Friday vs. the Wolves but coach Alvin Gentry said he wasn’t sure how much they’d play.

    Johnson has been a disappointment so far so maybe a change of scenery (and a tanking Pelicans team) will help him out. Smith won’t be used much, if at all, when all of the Pelicans’ bigs are active.

    The Pelicans will reportedly receive Stanley Johnson and Jason Smith in return for Nikola Mirotic.

    Johnson was a near-fit with the Milwaukee profile because of his size and length, but his lack of 3-point shooting wasn't going to play for the trigger-happy Bucks. He's headed for restricted free agency and should get good minutes for the Pelicans as they look to rebuild. This will hurt Kenrich Williams and Darius Miller, and even if Johnson is playing a ton he's never generated more than late-round returns carried by steals. His new surroundings make him worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues, however.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    The Pistons are finalizing a deal to send Stanley Johnson to the Bucks for Thon Maker.

    This is a deal that makes sense for both sides. The Bucks were looking to upgrade their wing position and will take a flier on Johnson who has shown glimpses of becoming a 3-and-D force. Maker was unhappy in Milwaukee and he will now get a chance to backup Andre Drummond in Detroit. Both guys deserve consideration in deeper leagues.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson came out of nowhere and dropped 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block against the Nuggets on Monday.

    Johnson scored more tonight than his previous seven games combined so it's safe to say tonight was a fluke. The Pistons ran a tired Nuggets team out of the building and Johnson went 4-for-5 from deep which is something we won't see for quite some time.
