Wesley Johnson SG/SF LAL 1 Day
Wes Johnson hit just 1-of-9 shots and missed all seven of his 3-point attempts for two points, four rebounds, one assist and four steals in 30 minutes, as the Lakers suffered their worst loss in history on Thursday.
The Clippers won 142-94 for their biggest win ever, while the Lakers suffered their worst loss of all time against their arena mates. Johnson was terrible and it looks as if the Lakers' makeshift lineup has completely quit on Mike D'Antoni. And with Xavier Henry back in the mix for the Lakers, guys like Jordan Farmar, Jodie Meeks, Johnson, Kent Bazemore and Kendall Marshall have all seen their minutes get a little dicey. This game was over shortly after tip off, so there's no need to panic about Johnson, or anyone else. But this was an embarrassing loss for the Lakers and something's going to have to give soon, as D'Antoni has never looked less in control of a team than he does right now.

Wesley Johnson hit four 3-pointers and blocked four shots against the Grizzlies on Wednesday to go with 18 points, five boards and two assists in 38 minutes.
The Lakers had him guard Marc Gasol today and he really showed some of his versatility. Nick Young missing time with his knee injury opens some serious time for Johnson, so he's worth owning in standard leagues until Swaggy P is back to being at full strength.

Wes Johnson hit 6-of-10 shots for 15 points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.
Nick Young will miss at least one more game with his knee injury, which directly impacts Johnson in a positive way. It looked like his value was about to die, but Young's return from the injury was short-lived, giving Johnson a little more life. Just don't expect this to last once Young is back and fully healthy.

Wes Johnson struggled against the Celtics on Friday with one point, three boards, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.
Friday was not a good day for Wes' outlook the rest of the way. On top of this massive dud, Nick Young has been cleared to play on Sunday following a knee injury. Considering the Lakers might want to get a look at their young guys and Swaggy P coming back, Johnson looks like a drop after a terrific run.

He's playing exceptional ball these days, averaging 16.2 points, 4.0 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.6 triples on 54.1 percent from the field over his last five. Johnson has made it abundantly clear he'll have great value until Nick Young (knee) can return, so he's worth owning in all standard leagues until that happens.

Wes Johnson scored 19 points against the Thunder on Thursday with one steal and one 3-pointer on 8-of-13 from the field in 42 minutes.
He had the unenviable task of guarding Kevin Durant and he was still able to turn in a nice game on the other side of the court. Johnson has really stepped up since Nick Young (knee) went down, averaging 15.4 points, 4.4 boards, 1.2 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.6 triples in his last five. Jodie Meeks' (ankle) return will also likely hurt him, but he's worth owning in almost all leagues for his recent surge in points to go with the steals, blocks and treys.
