Joe Johnson SG/SF BKN 5 Months

Joe Johnson scored a team-high 29 points vs. the Raptors during Game 3's 102-98 win over the Raptors to go with two assists and three 3-pointers.

He was very efficient with a shooting line of 11-of-17 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Johnson uncharacteristically had six shots in the paint tonight, which is well above his season average of 2.5 per game during the regular season. He's shot a sterling 60.7 percent from the field in this series and will look to carry the momentum into Game 4 on Sunday with the Nets up 2-1.

Joe Johnson led the Nets with 18 points, three rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's 100-95 Game 2 loss to the Raptors.

The series is tied 1-1 and the Nets saw double-digit scoring four starters, as well as Mirza Teletovic off the bench. Paul Pierce was 2-of-11 for seven points, but had a full stat line, Kevin Garnett scored 13 in 19 minutes, Deron Williams added 15 points and five assists on 4-of-14 shooting, Shaun Livingston added 12 points and five assists, and Teletovic hit three 3-pointers and scored 14 points. The series heads to Brooklyn for Game 3 & 4, where the Raptors will need to win one to regain homecourt advantage.

Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 24 points in Saturday's road win vs. the Raptors, with Johnson connecting on 8-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

D-Will carried the Nets in the first half and they wisely fed Johnson while he was hot in the third quarter, but it was their locked-in team defense that earned them a tough victory. They'll try to take a stranglehold on the series with another win in Toronto on Tuesday before heading to Brooklyn for Games 3 and 4.

Joe Johnson's sore calf will reportedly sideline him on Wednesday.

He played through the injury in Tuesday's loss and it doesn't sound very serious, but the Nets will err on the side of caution with the playoffs right around the corner. It sounds as though the Nets will have Alan Anderson (abdomen) back in action to fill the gaps at SG, along with Marcus Thornton and Marquis Teague.

Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.

The Nets could fall to the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, so we'll have to see if Jason Kidd goes after seeding or rest for his guys tomorrow. Our guess is the old guys will get a rest and the Nets will have the No. 6 seed, but it's just a guess.

Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.

Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale.

Joe Johnson (calf) is a game-time decision for Tuesday.

He could be out in order to rest for the playoffs and it looks like Marcus Thornton is going to see a lot of minutes tonight.

Joe Johnson scored nine points on 4-of-15 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in the Nets' 93-88 loss to the Hawks on Friday.

Johnson has been on a roll lately but owners should know that he's a candidate for rest down the stretch. We'll let you know if anything comes through the pipeline regarding his status but for now he can stay in lineups.

Joe Johnson scored 31 points on Wednesday, scored six points in the final minute and 11 points inside of the game's last three and a half minutes.

He's become the Nets' go-to guy in the fourth quarter and had a potential game-winning 3-pointer blocked by Kyle O'Quinn last night. Since March 1, Johnson is averaging 18.1 points on 50.8 percent shooting. His strong play since the All-Star break actually makes his selection to the team look better in hindsight.

Joe Johnson cruised to a game-high 32 points vs. the short-handed Rockets on Tuesday, draining 13-of-21 field goals with four 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and a steal.

The Nets' All-Star made some tough shots but he also benefited from James Harden's indifferent defense and the Rockets' lack of big men with Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones both unavailable. Joe Cool is shooting 64.3 percent from the field in Brooklyn's past three games, a nice treat for fantasy owners who've ridden him during his unlikely All-Star season.
