Johnson posted 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 0-3 FT), eight rebounds, one steal and one block across 27 minutes in Saturday's 125-113 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran swingman led the second unit in scoring and rebounding while posting his third game over the last five with at least 50.0 percent shooting. Johnson has generated five consecutive double-digit scoring efforts as well, and Saturday's 13 shot attempts represented a season high. Part of the 30-year-old's recent success can be attributed to the expanded opportunity he's seen in the wake of DeAndre Jordan's absence due to an ankle injury, and the fact that he's drained multiple threes in four of the last five contests. Given his ability to provide some offensive juice off the bench, Johnson should continue seeing a robust workload irrespective of Jordan's status.

Johnson posted 15 points (3-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 109-104 win over the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran swingman put together his fourth straight double-digit scoring effort while also contributing another strong performance on the glass. Johnson has averaged 9.0 rebounds over the last two games, and he'd also shot 50.0 percent (12-for-24) in the prior three games coming into Wednesday's contest. The 30-year-old has seen a nice uptick in playing time over the last four contests, three of which have come with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) out of action.

Johnson supplied 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes in Thursday's 121-115 win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson moved back to the bench with Blake Griffin returning to the lineup from a concussion, but he was able to turn in his second 13-point effort of the first six games of January. The veteran swingman's minutes have been all over the map this season, and his modest totals (6.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks) keep his fantasy value limited to deeper formats.

Johnson will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Warriors, Law Murray of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will be replaced at small forward by Sam Dekker for the contest. He had started 19 consecutive games before missing five straight due to injury. He then returned in a reserve role for two games before starting the last two for the Clippers. However, it looks like the team will give Dekker a shot. Johnson's likely to see a lesser workload than usual as a result.

Johnson will start at small forward for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies, Elliott Teaford of Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Clippers are set to be without Austin Rivers (Achilles) for a second straight night, but instead of going with Jawun Evans, the Clippers with shift C.J. Williams to shooting guard and insert Johnson into the lineup at small forward. After playing 26 minutes during Sunday's game against the Hornets, Johnson should be in for a similar, if not slightly expanded, role against the Grizzlies.

Johnson (foot) will play a reserve role in Friday's game against the Lakers, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will return from a five game absence Friday. He injured his foot on Dec. 16 against the Heat. His reserve role indicates the team will likely monitor the wing's minutes.

Johnson (foot) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Lakers, Elliott Teaford of Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has been on the sidelines for five straight games while working his way back from a foot injury, but is apparently feeling better and is now nearing a return. He'll target Friday to do so, though he'll likely have to test everything out during morning shootaround before a decision is made on his availability. If Johnson is ultimately cleared, he'd likely move back into the starting lineup and it'd mean less minutes for the likes of Jamil Wilson and Sam Dekker.

Coach Doc Rivers said Thursday that Johnson (foot) will likely be out another 5-to-7 days, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has missed the last two games with a left foot injury and he'll be on track to miss at least the next two Friday and Saturday. With the Clippers only playing two games next week, Johnson will have plenty of time to rehab the injury with his next chance to return being Tuesday against the Kings. Jamil Wilson and Sam Dekker are both expected to continue seeing additional minutes in Johnson's absence.

Johnson (foot) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Suns, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson was held out of Monday's game due to a sore left foot and the fact that he's being ruled out a day in advance of Wednesday's contest doesn't necessarily indicate he's nearing a return. His next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Rockets, though in the meantime, look for Jamil Wilson and Sam Dekker to pick up more minutes on the wing.

Johnson will not play Monday against the Spurs due to a left foot injury, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injuries continue to pile up for the Clippers, who will now be without both Johnson and Lou Williams (ankle) on Monday, though they do expect to get Austin Rivers back from a concussion. With Johnson out, expect Jamil Wilson and Sam Dekker to each pick up increased minutes on the wing.
