Wesley Johnson SG/SF LAL 6 Days

Lakers sign G/F Wes Johnson.

It's just a one-year, $1 million deal for Johnson, who had a terrific season in 2013-14. The Lakers were decimated by injuries last year and it was the main reason why Johnson was able to log 28.4 minutes per game. He is unlikely to match that average next season and won't be worth a pick in most fantasy drafts.

Wesley Johnson filled the stat sheet in Monday's 119-104 win over the Jazz, scoring 12 points with six boards, four assists, five steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

This is a huge game for fantasy purposes thanks to the steals, blocks and triples. As it turns out, Johnson actually raised his season averages to 1.1 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 triples in 78 games. He and Paul Millsap are the only two players to hold averages of 1.0 or greater in all three of those aforementioned categories, which has helped make Johnson a decent asset for several stretches this season.

Wes Johnson scored 15 points and hauled in a season-high 15 rebounds in Sunday's loss vs. the Grizzlies, while adding three 3-pointers, four assists and one steal.

The Lakers' losing streak has reached seven games and could extend to nine if they lose in their final games to the Jazz (Monday) and Spurs (Wednesday). The absence of Kent Bazemore and Xavier Henry has been a boon for Johnson's value and he's a safe option for fantasy owners as the season draws to a close.

Wes Johnson logged 30 minutes on Friday against the Warriors, but managed just eight points on 4-of-8 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds and one steal.

Johnson is locked into 25-plus minutes right now and he should be better than this on most nights. Consider your options, but some patience is probably in order.

Wes Johnson hit just 3-of-11 shots on Tuesday, but finished with 11 points, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in the loss.

He's going to get solid minutes down the stretch and is worth owning in all leagues now that Kent Bazemore's season is over.

Wes Johnson hit just 3-of-13 shots for six points on Friday, but added 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes off the bench.

Nick Young (20 minutes, 14 points) had a minor right ankle issue tonight but Johnson got his minutes because Ryan Kelly got into early foul trouble. Johnson could keep putting up great lines like this or he could get a DNP-CD the next time out. Owners make the call to add him at their own risk.

Wes Johnson scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with 12 boards, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Johnson was a DNP-CD and we're not even sure Mike D'Antoni knows (or cares) what he is doing on a night-to-night basis. Look at Johnson at your own risk.

Wes Johnson was a DNP-CD on Tuesday night vs. the Blazers.

When Nick Young plays, Johnson usually takes a backseat and it led to his DNP-CD of the season. He is not worth owning in any league right now.

Wes Johnson will move to the bench to face the Wolves on Friday.

It's against his former team, but coach Mike D'Antoni is moving guys around to fill the void left by Xavier Henry (knee). Johnson's value took a big hit when Nick Young returned from his knee injury, so he's a dicey play in fantasy leagues right now.

Mike D'Antoni suggested that Wes Johnson "sometimes [uses his] athleticism just to coast" during games.

"He needs to get out and just be relentless," D'Antoni said before Sunday's game, which Johnson finished with seven points, two rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes. The limited playing time is a concern given the presence of Ryan Kelly, Nick Young and Kent Bazemore off the bench, and owners should weigh their options carefully before committing to Johnson in L.A.'s current four-game week.
