Top Cameron Johnson News

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Hot shooting in return

    Johnson contributed 20 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 22 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 victory over Detroit.

    After sitting out last game (knee), Johnson returned to the starting lineup and put up his fourth 20-point game of the season. For the second straight game, he saw less minutes than Torrey Craig, and other than two steals he didn't add much in the other major categories. In his 16 games played this season, the 26-year-old Johnson is averaging only 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals, so when the scoring isn't there, he still isn't providing much fantasy value.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Starting against Detroit

    Johnson (knee) is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    As expected, Johnson returns to the starting lineup after he was omitted from the injury report and after a one-game absence. This means Dario Saric will head back to a bench role after posting a double-double Friday. Johnson is averaging 13.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game across 14 starts this season.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Absent from injury report

    Johnson (knee) will be active for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Johnson sat out Friday's game against the Celtics for injury management purposes and, as expected, will be available Saturday. However, Johnson has seen his minutes fluctuate as of late, playing 15, 26, and 32 minutes in his last three contests, respectively.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Won't play Friday

    Johnson has been ruled out for Friday's contest against the Celtics due to right knee injury management.

    Johnson has struggled over his last two appearances, totaling just 10 points (3-16 FG, 2-9 3Pt), four rebounds and two steals in 41 minutes. He'll take the first night of the Suns' upcoming back-to-back set off to rest the knee injury that cost him over two months earlier in the season, but the sharpshooter will presumably be back in action Saturday versus Detroit.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Lackluster results continue

    Johnson closed Wednesday's 132-100 loss to the Hawks with six points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and one rebound over 15 minutes.

    Johnson scored at least 15 points in four of his five appearances after returning from a lengthy absence, but he's totaled just 10 points over his last two outings while shooting only 18.8 percent from the floor during that time. Wednesday's game being a blowout loss contributed to his low minutes total, as the entire fourth quarter was essentially garage time. Across his six appearances since returning to action, he's averaged 14.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in 25.0 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Falls flat Monday

    Johnson registered four points (1-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes during Monday's 114-106 victory over the Raptors.

    Coming into the contest, Johnson had averaged 20.3 points while shooting 62.9 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from three over his last three appearances. That stretch seemed unlikely to continue, but his performance Monday also appears like an outlier. Johnson's true value lands somewhere in the middle, but more importantly, it appears like the sharpshooter will continue playing 25-35 minutes per game and should be a quality option moving forward, especially with Devin Booker (groin) still sidelined.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Shines for second straight game

    Johnson logged 22 points (8-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one block across 33 minutes during Thursday's 99-95 loss to the Mavericks.

    Johnson has scored at least 20 points while shining from beyond the arc for the second game in a row, keeping the momentum going after putting up 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-7 3Pt) in Tuesday's win over the Hornets. Johnson has made just four appearances since missing more than two months due to a nagging knee injury, but he has scored at least 19 points in three of those contests. While he's bound to regress at some point, given the efficiency he's required to maintain that level over the last two games, he's certainly making his presence felt on the offensive end of the court at the moment.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Catches fire from three

    Johnson had 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-7 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 128-97 victory over the Hornets.

    Despite playing less than half of the game, Johnson finished as the Suns' scoring leader for the night thanks to some stellar marksmanship. He's now scored 19 or more points in two of his three contests since returning from meniscus surgery and is shooting 53.3 percent from the field over that stretch.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Slows in loss Sunday

    Johnson had eight points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Sunday's 112-110 win over the Grizzlies.

    Johnson came back to earth in the loss, turning in a must more subdued performance when compared to his return game. Poor production aside, the fact he played 29 minutes has to be seen as a positive. The Suns really need his scoring punch, so while there could be a few ups and downs, Johnson is clearly a must-roster player across all formats.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Returning to starting lineup

    Johnson will start Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Johnson missed a stretch of 37 games from Nov. 5 through mid-January while battling a torn meniscus, but he made his long-awaited return Thursday against the Nets. While Johnson was held out of Saturday night's win over the Pacers, he'll be back in the starting lineup Sunday for the first time since Nov. 4. Johnson will likely require a few more games to work back up to speed, but he should eventually return to being a strong source of made three-pointers.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Not listed on injury report

    Johnson (knee) isn't listed on the Suns' injury report for Sunday's game against Memphis, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Johnson sat out the first half of the Suns' back-to-back set Saturday due to right knee injury maintenance, but as expected, he'll return to action Sunday. The sharpshooter made his first appearance Thursday since Nov. 4 and scored 19 points across 22 minutes. He figures to garner a similar role against the Grizzlies.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Won't play Saturday

    Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Johnson will get the first night of the Suns' back-to-back set off as he continues to work his way back to full strength from a meniscus injury. He posted 19 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes during his return to action Thursday and, barring a setback, should garner a similar role against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Shines bright in return

    Johnson (knee) finished with 19 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal over 22 minutes during Thursday's 117-112 victory over Brooklyn.

    Making his first appearance since Nov. 4 after a prolonged recovery from meniscus surgery on his right knee, Johnson was limited to a bench role in his return yet still made a major impact. He'll likely remain on a minutes restriction for at least a few more games and may not immediately regain the starting role he held prior to suffering the injury, but based on Thursday's performance, fantasy managers can probably feel comfortable activating him again or scooping him up off the waiver wire if he's still a free agent.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Will face minutes restriction

    Johnson (knee) will face a minutes restriction Thursday against the Nets, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Coach Monty Williams shared that Johnson's minutes would be capped Thursday and likely for the next couple of games. The Suns' coach also shared that Johnson should see his minutes increase moving forward. In the meantime, Torrey Craig will likely continue to pick up extra minutes while Johnson works his way back to his typical workload.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Will return Thursday

    Suns head coach Monty Williams said Wednesday that Johnson (knee) will return to action Thursday against the Nets, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Johnson, who's officially listed as probable, hasn't appeared in a contest since Nov. 4 due to a meniscus tear in his right knee that required surgery. While the 26-year-old previously started all of his eight appearances, Johnson could come off the bench Thursday and will presumably face a minutes restriction following the long layoff. Once he has fully reintegrated with the team, Johnson should reclaim a starting spot along with a near-30-minute role for Phoenix. In the seven games prior to his early departure in the Nov. 4 matchups, Johnson averaged 14.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals over 28.1 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Expected to play Thursday

    Johnson (knee) plans to make his return in Thursday's game versus the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson hasn't played since Nov. 4 after undergoing right knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The 26-year-old forward had started in all eight of his appearances this season, so he will likely replace Torrey Craig in the starting five at some point. However, Johnson appears set to face a minutes restriction in his first couple of games back and may first appear off the bench as a result.
