Top James Johnson News

  • 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

  • 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: Questionable versus Minnesota

    Johnson (elbow) is questionable to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Timberwolves.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Listed out for Monday

    Johnson (elbow) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Warriors, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    Johnson wasn't expected to play much of a role Monday, so his absence won't be a huge loss. He'll have a chance to return to action Wednesday in Minnesota.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Listed as questionable

    Johnson is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to a right elbow sprain.

    Johnson played four minutes against the Trail Blazers on Sunday but is dealing with an elbow issue prior to the second half of the back-to-back set. His status shouldn't significantly impact the Pacers' rotation.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Off injury report for Wednesday

    Johnson (back) is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Johnson has been unavailable lately due to a back injury. However, he only sees time when the Pacers are dealing with frontcourt injuries.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Out Saturday

    Johnson will miss Saturday's game against the Raptors due to back soreness, Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports.

    Johnson is a late scratch for Saturday's contest due to the injury, vacating his season-average 14.7 frontcourt minutes for the likes of Oshae Brissett and Isaiah Jackson. His next chance to suit up comes Wednesday against the Hornets.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Plays 18 minutes in loss

    Johnson notched four points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 18 minutes before fouling out of Monday's 116-109 loss to the Nets.

    Johnson played a season-high 18 minutes against his former team but hardly made an impact in the box score. Across three appearances with Indiana, the veteran forward has averaged 3.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 14.7 minutes.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Signs training camp deal

    The Pacers signed Johnson to a training camp deal Friday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Johnson was a core part of Brooklyn's rotation last year and averaged 5.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 19.2 minutes across 62 games, but he was waived at the end of the season to make room for Kessler Edwards to sign a standard contract. The Pacers have a lot of young, frontcourt talent, so it may be difficult for the veteran forward to land a spot on Indiana's initial roster.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Waived to make room for Edwards

    Johnson (illness) was waived by the Nets on Thursday, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

    Despite Johnson being in the rotation all year -- 19.2 minutes per game in 62 appearances -- he'll be waived to allow Kessler Edwards to be signed to a full deal, as two-way players can't play in the play-in tournament. Still, it's a surprising move given the other frontcourt players on Brooklyn not seeing minutes lately -- namely, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Out Wednesday

    Johnson (illness) is out Wednesday against the Knicks.

    Johnson will miss a second straight game due to an illness. LaMarcus Aldridge and Kessler Edwards figure to see increased minutes again.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Questionable Wednesday

    Johnson (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Johnson was sidelined Tuesday due to a non-COVID illness and is in jeopardy of missing a second consecutive contest. If he's sidelined, more minutes could be in store for Kessler Edwards, Blake Griffin and/or LaMarcus Aldridge.

  • Nets' James Johnson: Out vs. Rockets

    Johnson (illness) is out Tuesday against the Rockets, Christian Arnold of the Associated Press reports.

    Tuesday will mark Johnson's first absence since Feb. 17, and he's averaged 4.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 blocks since. In his absence, more minutes could be in store for Kessler Edwards, Blake Griffin and/or LaMarcus Aldridge.
