Joe Johnson SG/SF BKN 6 Days

Johnson toiled 52 minutes in the triple-overtime loss to the Bucks on Wednesday and provided 18 points (7-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, and eight assists.

The 33-year-old Johnson has been playing heavy minutes (only fewer than 31 minutes once and 36 or more five times). Over his last five, he is averaging 15.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.2 assists. He is a steady source of fantasy goodness and should remain in lineups.

Johnson scored 21 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Suns.

Johnson is getting it going again, and fantasy owners are hoping that he can start lighting up the stat sheet in a big way, sooner than later. When Johnson's shot is on, he's a major fantasy option, but it's been a bit hit-or-miss to this point in 2014.

Johnson scored 22 points (9-17 FG, 1-4 3P, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Timberwolves.

The veteran wing is off to a great start to the season, but with Brook Lopez now back in the lineup Johnson could see his shots, and scoring drop a bit going forward.

Johnson posted 34 points (14-23 FG, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds and six assists in Saturday's victory at Detroit.

The Pistons ran a number at defenders at Johnson, but no one had an answer, especially in the fourth period when Johnson exploded for 15 points. Johnson looks like a strong play next week, when the Nets play four home games.

Johnson scored 19 points (7-19 FG, 2-5 3P, 3-5 FT) with six rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 loss to the Celtics.

The veteran guard posted a fairly typical line in the Nets' opener. With Paul Pierce now in Washington, Johnson might just see an uptick in his scoring this season, but don't expect a huge jump in his production.

Johnson will open up training camp playing small forward, ESPN New York reports.

Johnson primarily played shooting guard for the Nets last year, but coach Lionel Hollins announced he views him as a small forward. With the departure of Paul Pierce, Johnson will move over as the starter ahead of last season's often injured Andrei Kirilenko. Alan Anderson and rookie Bojan Bogdanovic will then compete for the starting position in the void left from moving Johnson over. Although his scoring numbers went down, Johnson had a decent year last season averaging 15.8 points, 3.4 points, 2.7 assists, and 0.6 steals, in 33 minutes per game, even with him being in the thirteenth year of his career.

Joe Johnson scored 34 points in a season-ending loss to the Heat on Wednesday on 15-of-23 shooting, adding seven boards, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He was on fire after the break, making 9-of-10 from the field to start the half. Johnson wasn't taking easy shots or anything and the shots were just dropping for him. However, he did turn the ball over on the last possession of the game as he was stripped near the free throw line. Johnson turned in a terrific postseason, entering tonight scoring 20.0 points per game on 51.6 percent from the field. He'll likely be looking at a similar role with the Nets in his third year in Brooklyn for the 2014-15 season.

Joe Johnson's left hand injury from Game 4 doesn't appear to be affecting him leading up to Game 5 on Wednesday.

There was never really a doubt for Johnson's status and he should see his normal load in the starting lineup. He was the hero in the Nets' only win in this series and he'll need to step it up tonight.

Joe Johnson was unhappy with what he perceived to be a flop by LeBron James during Monday's Game 4 loss to the Heat.

Johnson drove towards the basket with the Nets down three at the end of the game and was upset with the no-call on what he thought was James' sixth personal foul. "I wasn't necessarily trying to draw the foul on him but I thought he was aggressive," Johnson said after the game. "So I was just trying to use his aggressiveness against him. He flopped that last one." Regardless of what Johnson thinks, he didn't get the call and he and his Nets teammates have their backs against the wall as they Heat to Miami for a must-win Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Joe Johnson hit 7-of-10 shots and five 3-pointers for 19 points, three rebounds and six assists to lead the Nets over the Heat in Saturday's Game 3 104-90 win.

The series is now 2-1 in favor the Heat, and we're surprised JJ didn't get more shots up, given how hot he was tonight. Shaun Livingston added 12 points, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer, and Kevin Garnett finally showed signs of life with 10 points and seven rebounds on 5-of-6 shooting in 23 minutes. Game 4 is Monday in Brooklyn.
