Wesley Johnson SG/SF LAL 40 Mins

Johnson (ankle) posted seven points, four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 21 minutes of action Sunday against the Kings.

Johnson has maintained his starting job throughout the season, but his production hasn't been impressive. He's averaging just 8.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers made for the season and is only an option in deep leagues.

Johnson (ankle) wasn't able to practice Friday but is still expected to play against the Kings on Sunday.

Johnson is dealing with a minor ankle injury that doesn't appear to be serious. It might be worth monitoring over the next few games, although his ankle issues can likely just be chalked up to the normal wear and tear of the season.

Johnson had 12 points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with two rebounds, six assists, one steal, and three blocks in 29 minutes Sunday.

The six assists were a season-high, and even though his minutes have dropped since Nick Young returned to the team, Johnson's production has increased. Johnson is averaging 11.7 points, 2.3 three-pointers, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.7 blocks in his past three games and should be monitored in standard leagues, if not added.

Johnson (illness) put up 13 points, five rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 28 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

Johnson had been dealing with a stomach virus but seems to be in the clear moving forward after Friday's successful stint on the court. However, he's on the fringe of standard league viability despite averaging 31 minutes on the court per game.

Johnson (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Johnson is dealing with a stomach virus and was not present at Wednesday's session. Until his status is updated Thursday, consider Johnson questionable to play Friday against the Spurs.

Johnson had his best game of the season in a loss to the Timberwolves, scoring 19 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and picking up two assists, four rebounds and a steal.

Johnson led all the Lakers in minutes Friday, playing in 38. Don't let the one good performance fool you, though. He's still only averaging 7.6 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, and is shooting less than 40 percent from the floor.

Johnson scored just five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt) with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 29 minutes in the loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Johnson has started every game for the Lakers this season, even with Nick Young back in the rotation, but has not provided fantasy owners with the sort of production he got last season, despite playing an additional four minutes per game. The former lottery pick is averaging less points, three-pointers, rebounds, steals and blocks compared with last season and is shooting four percent worse from the field. If you own him in 12 team leagues, you can probably consider moving on.

Johnson's slow start to the 2014-15 season continues Tuesday against the Suns, recording just four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

The minutes have been there for Johnson, but he hasn't been able to capitalise on the opportunity with Nick Young (thumb) out and Xavier Henry (knee) limited. Through five games, Johnson has averaged 8.0 points, 0.8 three-pointers, 3.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.4 blocks on 40 percent shooting from the field and 100 percent shooting from the line. While the playing time is nice, the production doesn't warrant Johnson being owned in standard fantasy leagues unless you're banking on an improvement over the next few weeks before Young returns.

Johnson played a team high 40 minutes, scoring 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT) with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, and three blocks Tuesday.

Johnson also turned it over a whopping eight times, but with Nick Young (thumb) and Xavier Henry (knee) out for the beginning of the regular season, he's going to get a lot of run at small forward. His ability to rack defensive stats makes him a very intriguing fantasy option as a late round pick this season.

Johnson (knee) is expected to start in Thursday's preseason tilt against the Golden State Warriors after fully participating in Wednesday's practice, InsideSoCal.com reports.

With Nick Young (thumb) and Xavier Henry (back) still sidelined, Johnson will be the Lakers' go-to-guy at small forward. He was one of only two player, Paul Millsap being the other, to average at least 1.0 three-pointers, 1.0 steals, and 1.0 blocks last season, and should be a nice low end source of stats in fantasy leagues this season.
