Tyler Johnson

  • Chris Chiozza
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Chris Chiozza averaged 4.0 points, 0.9 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals in 21 games for 306/307 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Chiozza was looked over during the draft due to his size, but he has all the intangibles needed to run the point. He's accurate from deep (.435 career 3-point shooter) and has the court vision and passing ability to keep the boat afloat while he's in. If Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyrie Irving don't return to action, Chiozza should see a nice uptick in his assist numbers, but the signing of Tyler Johnson makes that future a bit murky.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson played 31 games for the Suns, averaging 5.7 points, 0.8 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.4 assists which was good for 369 in value in 9-cat leagues.

    Johnson couldn't stay healthy and when he was on the floor, he was bad. The shot disappeared as he shot .380 from the field and the contract he signed was an absolute steal for him. Spencer Dinwiddie's status to play during the resumption is up in the air due to him being positive for COVID which means Johnson might get more burn than we anticipated.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie stated that he tested positive for coronavirus and has experienced symptoms of the virus.

    Dinwiddie will self-quarantine for 14 days before determining whether he will be able to participate when the league resumes play. He has been a key player for the Nets this season while averaging 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.8 assists. The Nets recently signed Tyler Johnson to bolster their bench. Joe Harris, Garrett Temple, and Chris Chiozza would be other candidates for more minutes if Dinwiddie cannot return when games begin.

    Tyler Johnson has agreed to a deal with the Nets, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Johnson was waived by the Suns in February and has seen his stock take quite a tumble after inking a big deal with the Heat a few summers ago. Injuries took him off the court and Miami's depth left him on the outside looking in before he was traded to Phoenix last year. Johnson has shown to be a capable player before and will give the Nets some nice backcourt depth with Kyrie Irving out, though expectations should be tempered given his lackluster work over the last two seasons.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Free Agent

    The Rockets have interest in free agent guard Tyler Johnson, who last played for the Suns before being waived in early February.

    The Rockets have been interested in Johnson before (in 2016) and he could find his way on to a roster sooner rather than later. NBA teams will undoubtedly have plenty of roster flexibility next month when the league returns to action, and depth could play a big part for teams that have positive tests for coronavirus. As currently constructed, the Rockets have no room for Johnson in terms of floor time.

    PG-SG, Free Agent

    The Lakers and the Clippers are both said to have interest in guard Tyler Johnson, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

    Johnson was waived by the Suns on Sunday and is now officially a free agent. He projects to have minimal fantasy value even if he is able to sign with one of the LA teams.

    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns waived Tyler Johnson on Sunday, and he is set to become an unrestricted free agent after clearing waivers.

    Johnson has had a rough season and is unlikely to be a factor in fantasy no matter where he ends up after clearing waivers. He is also dealing with right knee soreness at the moment and may need some time off before retaking the floor.

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter will handle the majority of the back up guard minutes.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left hip soreness), Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) and Dario Šarić (left ankle sprain) have all been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    They join Frank Kaminsky (right patella stress fracture) as players that will not be in uniform on Friday. Baynes had a stretch of standard league relevance during Deandre Ayton's suspension but has lost significant value since Ayton's return. The Suns play next on Saturday vs. the Nuggets but consider them all quite doubtful for that game as well. With all of the injuries the Suns are facing, the main cogs (Ayton, Kelly Oubre Jr., Devin Booker, Ricky Rubio and Mikal Bridges) will carry the load on Friday.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (ankle), Aron Baynes (hip), Frank Kaminsky (knee), Cam Johnson (quad), Tyler Johnson knee() and Ty Jerome (calf) are all being listed out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Saric was been ruled out through Thursday over the weekend, and Mikal Bridges has taken his spot in the starting lineup. Bridges has been a top 45/55 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month and he deserves a spot on all rosters for his diverse skill set.

    Neither Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) nor Ty Jerome (left calf soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Johnson briefly left Friday's game and played on Sunday, but the injury is apparently not healing as hoped. Jerome was unable to play on Sunday at all. Their absences will open up more minutes for Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter to work.

    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been cleared to play on Sunday.

    Nothing to see here after Johnson was able to return to Friday's game despite leaving with a leg problem. The Suns are down two other PGs today so Johnson might get some additional run if you're looking for a streaming option.

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable vs. the Bucks on Sunday.

    Ricky Rubio is questionable, so TyJo might be able to squeeze out a few back-up minutes. Elie Okobo will likely take a chunk of the PG time, should Rubio not make it.

    Tyler Johnson (leg) checked back into the closing moments of Friday's game.

    Our earlier analysis still holds: "Either way, the veteran hasn't been a fantasy factor in quite some time." Johnson posted nine points, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 15 minutes tonight but he's only worth a look in 20-teamers.

    Tyler Johnson (leg) went back to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Friday's game.

    The odds are against Johnson returning though that's more a factor of time than his health. Either way, the veteran hasn't been a fantasy factor in quite some time. If he can't return his night will end with nine points, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 15 minutes.
