Johnson scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 FT) with nine rebounds and a block in 31 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's win over the Nets.

He's been struggling recently, averaging just 8.2 points and 4.4 boards over his previous five games coming into Wednesday, so both the Raptors and Johnson's fantasy owners have to hope that this performance is a sign that he's beginning to perk up.

Johnson recorded a season high 27 points (11-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and added seven rebounds, four assists, and a steal in 33 minutes against the Cavaliers Friday.

Johnson is a very streaky and inconsistent player - in his last six games, he has scored single digits twice, low double digits twice, and at least 20 twice. But Johnson can provide value across almost every category, and when he is playing well he can be a useful fantasy asset. I

Johnson (toe) reportedly re-injured his toe in Sunday's game against the Lakers, after originally stubbing it in the Raptor's game against the Mavericks on Friday, TSN Sports reports.

Johnson played only 22 minutes in Sunday's overtime thriller in Los Angeles, as he was sidelined with the toe injury. While he's dealt with an ankle injury recently, it wasn't the ankle this time, but rather a toe injury that he originally suffered Friday. Johnson was supposedly bleeding from his toe enough that it was going through his sock, so he'll probably have that checked out before Tuesday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Consider him day-to-day and questionable for Tuesday's matchup.

Johnson scored 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-2 3P) with nine rebounds, a steal and a block in 30 minutes during Friday's loss to the Mavericks.

He might finally be getting back to his usual form after his early season ankle injury. If you've had Johnson parked on your bench while he struggled, or if he was dropped in shallower leagues, consider getting him into your lineup.

Johnson scored just two points with three rebounds in 25 minutes Monday.

He's been mostly invisible recently, averaging just 5.4 points and 4.2 boards over his last five games, although he has added eight blocks over that stretch to salvage a little fantasy value. Johnson's ankle may still be bothering him, but even if he's healthy keep him on your bench or the waiver wire until he gets back to his usual form.

Johnson (ankle) scored five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3P) with three rebounds and four fouls in just 18 minutes during Sunday's shellacking of the 76ers.

With the Raptors cruising to an easy win coach Dwane Casey saw no reason to push Johnson, but it's worth noting that he didn't seem to be at full speed when he was on the court. Consider him a risky play for the upcoming week, as Casey could continue to use any excuse to limit his minutes and try to keep him from re-injuring his ankle.

Johnson (ankle) was declared "fit to play" by Raptors' coach Dwane Casey after Saturday's practice, the Toronto Star reports.

He'll likely get the start on Sunday, but a home game against the woeful Sixers could see the Raptors race out to a big early lead, setting up another abbreviated appearance for Johnson even if he doesn't aggravate his ankle injury. In daily formats, you may want to look elsewhere for front court production.

Johnson (ankle) managed to practice Saturday and is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the 76ers, TSN Sports reports.

Johnson was taken out of Friday's game with a sore left ankle but said Saturday that he could have played through the pain if needed. The 27-year-old has had a history of ankle injuries in the past, although this most recent injury doesn't seem to be concerning for his long-term status.
