Johnson scored six points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt) with three rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Wednesday's blowout loss to the Cavaliers.

Johnson had scored in double digits in the four games prior to this one, however, his three-point shooting is down and he offers very little in steals. Check your waiver wire, as there could be someone who is currently offering more than what Johnson is.

Lopez will continue to get off plenty of shots, as he's one of the team's scoring leaders, so he'll continue to put up points, while also being a decent source of three-pointers and rebounds. He's averaging 15.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists on the season.

Johnson (personal) will start Monday's game against the Clippers, Tim Bontemps of the New York Post reports.

Johnson was away from the team Sunday for personal reasons, but he's rejoined the club and will assume his normal starting shooting guard role. The veteran is coming off of a tough January, efficiency-wise, but he remains a consistent scorer, and he's worth a look this week with the Nets playing four games.

Johnson missed Sunday's practice for personal reasons, leaving his status for Monday's game against the Clippers unknown, The Record reports.

Johnson will likely be a game-time decision for Monday's contest while further news should be released after the morning shootaround. If he's unable to play, Alan Anderson would have a chance to see an increased role against the Clippers.

Johnson scored 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt) with four rebounds and three assists in 46 minutes during Friday's OT loss to the Raptors.

The rest provided by Monday's postponement seems to have provided Johnson with a spark, and he's scored 43 points on 18-for-35 shooting in the two games since. Given his age and lingering knee tendinitis, however, don't expect him to be able to keep up this hot streak for long.

Johnson scored 26 points (10-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with two rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

It's his first game in January with 20 or more points, as an assortment of leg injuries have reduced Johnson's effectiveness in recent weeks. The 33-year-old is averaging career lows in scoring and field goal percentage this season, and with one more year to go on his bloated contract the Nets may have a hard time finding a taker for Johnson in trade talks.

Johnson has been playing through tendinitis in his right knee and his left ankle for the majority of the season, Newsday reports.

Johnson does not plan on taking any time off to rest, but his production has taken a dive in the month of January as he's shooting 36.2 percent from the field and a lowly 29.0 percent from three-point range. His current plan is to gut it out until the All-Star break without taking time off the court to rest. This strategy bodes well for owners of Johnson in the short term, although Johnson's long-term viability is in serious question.
