Top James Johnson News

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Removed from injury report

    Johnson (illness) is not listed on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Pistons.

    Johnson will be available for Thursday's game after missing Indiana's final two games before the All-Star break due to an illness. However, that doesn't mean he'll log meaningful minutes, as he tends to be a negligible part of the rotation.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Sitting Wednesday due to illness

    Johnson (illness) is listed as out for Wednesday's game in Toronto.

    Johnson will sit out a second straight game due to an unspecified ailment. The 36-year-old isn't part of the Indiana frontcourt rotation, so his absence shouldn't affect how head coach Rick Carlisle elects to divvy up the minutes.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Ruled out for Monday

    Johnson (illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    Johnson was questionable for Monday's matchup due to an illness, and he'll be unable to suit up. His final chance to play before the All-Star break will be Wednesday against Toronto.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Questionable due to illness

    Johnson is deemed questionable ahead of Monday at Charlotte due to an illness.

    He is going to offer emergency depth and team leadership more than he'll be a regular on-the-court contributor for the Pacers the rest of the way and will likely be a game-time call Monday.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Back with Indiana

    The Pacers re-signed Johnson to a one-year contract Thursday.

    Though he's made just 23 appearances with Indiana since the start of the 2023-24 season, Johnson is clearly valued by the organization, with Tony East of SI.com pointing out that the 36-year-old big man has now signed six different contracts with the Pacers over the last 18 months. The Pacers didn't immediately re-sign Johnson after his second 10-day deal expired Thursday, but the team had an extra roster spot left open for the veteran in the aftermath of the trade deadline and elected to bring him back. Johnson still projects to remain out of the rotation more often than not and would need an injury or two to hit the Indiana frontcourt in order to get meaningful run.

  • James Johnson: Deal with Indiana ends

    Johnson became a free agent Thursday after his second 10-day contract with the Pacers expired, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Indiana will have to sign Johnson to a contract for the rest of the season in order to retain him, but the team will most likely move on from the veteran big man, who has averaged just 4.8 minutes per game over his five appearances with the club in 2023-24. The Pacers have already filled Johnson's roster spot after acquiring two players from the 76ers (Marcus Morris and Furkan Korkmaz) and dealing away one (Buddy Hield) on Thursday.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Signs another 10-day deal

    Johnson signed a second 10-day contract with the Pacers on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson returned to the Pacers on a 10-day deal Jan. 19 but hasn't made any appearances for the team since rejoining the club. It's unlikely that he'll be a regular part of the rotation while playing on his second 10-day contract.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Rejoins Indiana

    The Pacers signed Johnson to a 10-day contract Friday.

    Johnson was waived from Indiana on Wednesday after the team need to clear roster room for trade acquisitions Pascal Siakam and Kira Lewis. The Pacers have since re-routed Lewis to Toronto, enabling the team to clear a spot back up for Johnson. Though he's now back with Indiana, Johnson is unlikely to be a regular part of the rotation.

  • James Johnson: Let go by Indiana

    The Pacers will waive Johnson on Wednesday, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Johnson will lose his spot on the 15-man roster to clear room for guard Kira Lewis, whom the Pacers acquired from the Pelicans on Wednesday as part of their three-team deal for Pascal Siakam. Lewis will be re-routed back to Toronto, but the Pacers will still need to temporarily clear room for him by waiving Johnson to facilitate the trade. Johnson signed with the Pacers on Dec. 14 but averaged just 4.8 minutes across five appearances since joining the team.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Inks deal with Indiana

    The Pacers signed Johnson to a one-year contract Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson made 18 appearances for Indiana in 2022-23 and averaged 2.8 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.0 minutes. While the veteran forward is unlikely to be a significant member of the team's rotation, Johnson can provide experience to a young Pacers squad.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Dusts off cobwebs Friday

    Johnson had six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 19 minutes during Friday's 122-115 loss to Detroit.

    Johnson played meaningful minutes in the loss, a true indication that the Pacers are done for the season. Unfortunately, he was a minus-15 in a game they lost by seven, providing minimal tangible production. The Pacers' final game of the season is against the Knicks on Sunday, providing Johnson with his last opportunity to break a sweat before going into hibernation once again.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Re-signs with Indiana

    The Pacers re-signed Johnson on Monday.

    Johnson was waived by Indiana to make room for a trio of players coming over in a deal with Milwaukee ahead of the trade deadline. The Pacers have opted to bring back the veteran forward a few days later, but their roster currently sits at 17 players, meaning they'll have to make some corresponding moves to reach the 15-player threshold.

  • James Johnson: Waived by Indiana

    Johnson was waived by the Pacers on Thursday, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Johnson hasn't been part of Indiana's rotation recently, and he'll part ways with the club after the Pacers acquired several players ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. Even if Johnson is able to land a roster spot elsewhere, he's unlikely to see a significant role.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Retreats to bench

    Johnson isn't starting Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Johnson got a spot start Wednesday, as Myles Turner (back) was a late scratch, but the veteran forward will retreat to his usual reserve role Friday. Johnson likely won't garner a large enough role against Atlanta to be fantasy relevant.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Gets starting nod

    Johnson is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Knicks, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    Johnson is an unexpected addition to the starting lineup Wednesday, as Myles Turner (back) is a late scratch. The veteran forward hasn't played since Dec. 27.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Makes rare appearance in loss

    Johnson chipped in two points (1-3 FG) and one block over seven minutes during Monday's 113-93 loss to the Pelicans.

    Johnson saw playing time for just the eighth time this season and for the first time in almost a month. This was a true garbage-time special, with a host of other benchwarmers joining Johnson on the floor to close the game. His days of being a fantasy-relevant player are behind him, so Johnson can safely be ignored in all formats.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Active Friday

    Johnson (elbow) will suit up for Friday's matchup against Washington.

    Although it's certainly positive to see Johnson available for the contest, he's slated to see very few minutes, if any, considering he's appeared in only seven contests this season. However, more frontcourt minutes could be up for grabs Friday considering Isaiah Jackson (knee) is out.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Questionable Friday

    Johnson is questionable to play in Friday's game versus Washington due to a right elbow sprain.

    Johnson was available to play Wednesday but didn't log any minutes. Even if Johnson plays Friday, his average of 8.9 minutes across seven games this season is unlikely to generate much fantasy value.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Available to play Wednesday

    Johnson (elbow) is active Wednesday against Minnesota.

    The forward will be active off the bench for the Pacers despite nursing an elbow injury. Johnson has been held scoreless across his past two appearances.
