Johnson submitted two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes in a 116-102 win over the Celtics on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After being dropped from the rotation Feb. 24 against the Spurs, Johnson has steadily regained playing time while appearing in each of the last five games. He's now seen double-digit minutes in two straight games, though that's probably the ceiling for Johnson's court time while the Clippers remain at full strength on the wing. Johnson is averaging a career-low 3.1 points in 12.6 minutes per game for the season.

Johnson posted 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds, one block, four steals and one turnover across 19 minutes during a 99-84 win over the Hawks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson's 19 minutes were the most he's recorded over the last nine games, which speaks to the smaller role he's held throughout the season despite opening the 2016-17 campaign as a candidate to start at small forward. His 11-point, four-rebound effort could be enough to garner a few extra minutes following the All-Star break, although it's seem more realistic he'll be stuck in a minor bench role, as he had yet to log more than 11 minutes in February prior to Wednesday's contest.

Johnson returned from his personal leave to play 11 scoreless minutes in Thursday night's loss to the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson was absent from Monday's game against the Thunder to attend to the birth of his child. In rejoining his teammates Thursday, Johnson missed his lone shot attempt, gathered two steals and had one rebound. With the injury-hit Clippers short on bodies, Johnson could see his playing time elevated beyond the usual 13.5 minutes per night, but it's hard to take too much stock in someone averaging 3.1 points and 3.3 rebounds right now.

Johnson is away from the team following the birth of his child and won't play in Monday's game against the Thunder, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems unlikely that Johnson will miss multiple games, so there's a good chance he's back with the Clippers prior to Thursday's matchup against the Timberwolves. That said, Johnson has held just a minor role off the bench for the Clippers, so his absence shouldn't drastically change the team's regular allotment of minutes.

Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has dealt with a sprained left ankle the last few days and only ended up playing two minutes in Saturday's game against the Thunder. Even when healthy, the 29-year-old has always struggled to produce counting stats over his career, and he's averaging just 3.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 0.6 assists with 13.5 minutes per game this season.

Johnson (ankle) will come off the bench Saturday against the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson came into Saturday with a sprained left ankle, so it's possible that the Clippers want to play it safe by having him come off the bench instead of starting. However, coach Doc Rivers has continually tinkered with his lineup in the absence of Blake Griffin (knee), so there's no telling whether Paul Pierce or Johnson will be given the nod Monday against Phoenix, when Johnson is presumably healthier.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson (ankle) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson sprained his ankle during Friday's loss to the Rockets, but may be able to return Saturday and play through any lingering pain. If he's ultimately ruled out, Luc Mbah a Moute would likely see an increased role at small forward.

Johnson injured his left ankle during Friday's loss to the Rockets, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of the injury is unclear, but Johnson was observed limping out of the locker room after the game. The veteran started alongside DeAndre Jordan and Luc Mbah a Moute in the frontcourt and played 24 minutes, finishing with 10 points and five rebounds. Until further information surfaces, consider Johnson questionable for Saturday's meeting with the Thunder.
