Amir Johnson played 31 minutes and had 13 points, nine rebounds and a block on 5-of-8 shooting on Wednesday.
He hit just 3-of-6 free throws, but this was a much better line than we've seen from him lately. He's usually outplayed by Patrick Patterson, but that wasn't the case tonight. Pat-Pat had 13 points and three 3-pointers, but just two rebounds, and it's possible that Johnson could finally be ready to start playing. Keep a close eye on this timeshare in the next one.

Amir Johnson needed to get his ankle re-taped against the Nuggets on Monday with seven points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three turnovers.

He basically dealt with ankle pain for the entire second half of the season last year, so this is troubling news. Johnson looked hobbled in his return in the second half, so don't be surprised if he misses a game to get him back to 100 percent. He tried to play through it last year and it backfired. They play the second-place Cavs on Tuesday, so check back for an update after morning shootaround.
Dec 8 - 11:54 PM

Amir Johnson scored a season-high 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three in the Raptors' 105-91 loss to the Cavs on Friday.

Johnson is quietly putting up borderline must-start numbers and as long as he can remain healthy he'll be a must-own player in standard formats.
Dec 6 - 1:46 AM

Amir Johnson (toe) was quiet in Tuesday's game against the Kings, finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

He was questionable leading up to the game but he didn't appear to be hampered by his toe at all, and the 32 minutes were his second-highest total of the season. Fantasy owners should still check for an update on his status before Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.
Dec 3 - 12:51 AM

Amir Johnson (toe) will start Tuesday's game despite being listed as questionable.

Johnson may be somewhat limited as the Raptors try to prevent further injury to his aggravated toe, but at least he's healthy enough to suit up. Owners with safer options may want to hedge their bets with Johnson, especially since Patrick Patterson has been playing very well as a backup PF over the past week.
Dec 2 - 10:01 PM

Amir Johnson (toe) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

He re-injured his stubbed toe in Sunday's game vs. the Lakers, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit this one out. We will let you know as soon as we get official confirmation, but if he can't go expect Patrick Patterson to get the Nod. Patterson is worth a look in almost all leagues as he has notched back-to-back double-doubles in his last two games.
Dec 2 - 8:44 PM

Amir Johnson re-injured his stubbed toe vs. the Lakers on Sunday, picking up four fouls and finishing with six points, four rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

Johnson said his toe was bleeding through his sock and as a precaution we'll list him as questionable for Tuesday's road game. His blocks and assists were nice tonight, so it wasn't a total wash for fantasy owners, but Johnson's limited playing time (25.6 minutes per game) makes him prone to quiet games even when healthy. He's a solid player to own if you need to bolster your team's FG percentage and blocks, but don't expect much more from the 10-year veteran.
Dec 1 - 12:51 AM

Amir Johnson scored 20 points in 30 minutes against the Mavericks during a 106-102 loss on Friday with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

His frontcourt mate, Jonas Valanciunas (eight points, 13 boards and one steal), had some trouble with Tyson Chandler, so Johnson benefited. He hasn't hit his stride just yet and is outside of top-100 value, which will change after tonight's massive game.
Nov 29 - 12:22 AM

Amir Johnson had eight points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

Johnson was effective tonight, but could have done more. This was a much better outing than his two-point, three-rebound effort on Saturday, and with James Johnson out with a severely sprained ankle, there should be more games like this coming from Amir. Hopefully with more scoring, as well.
Nov 20 - 2:29 AM

Amir Johnson scored just two points against the Jazz on Saturday with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes.

There is no word of an injury in this surprisingly bad game. Johnson does have a usage rate of just 15.7 on the season, so the low scoring shouldn't be a major surprise. His fantasy owners shouldn't panic.
Nov 15 - 11:09 PM

Amir Johnson's ankle injury wasn't evident on Tuesday, as he started and had 12 points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in a comeback win vs. the Magic.

Johnson made 6-of-8 field goals without any blocks in just 22 minutes of action. His limited playing time was due to Patrick Patterson's excellent play off the bench, and the only solace for his fantasy owners is that he's healthy. The Raptors will try to keep the momentum going when the Bulls visit the Air Canada Centre on Thursday.
Nov 11 - 10:28 PM

Amir Johnson (ankle) will start vs. the Magic on Tuesday, as expected.

The Raptors have brought Johnson along slowly the past two games, limiting his playing time as a precaution, but he practiced fully on Monday and should be fine vs. the Magic. Las Vegas has the Raptors favored at more than 10 points, however, and if the score gets out of hand it wouldn't be surprising to see Johnson rested late in the game.
Nov 11 - 7:16 PM

Amir Johnson (ankle) went through a full practice on Monday.

Johnson was limited to just 18 minutes in Sunday's blowout win, but that was more of a precaution than a necessity with an enormous lead against the Sixers. He should be ready to go for Tuesday, but as always with Amir, the ankle soreness is a lingering concern and something his owners have to monitor.
Nov 10 - 1:27 PM

Amir Johnson (ankle) started Sunday's blowout win vs. the 76ers and finished with just five points, three rebounds and four fouls in 18 minutes.

He sat out the second half of the Raptors' previous game as a precaution due to lingering soreness in his ankle, but his low playing time tonight was attributable to his fouls and the lopsided score. He should be ready to go for Tuesday's game vs. the visiting Magic.
Nov 9 - 9:38 PM

Amir Johnson (ankle) will start on Sunday vs. the 76ers.

Johnson played 21 minutes in his last outing, putting up six points, seven rebounds, and two blocks. He sat out the second half as a precaution, and it's not clear if he'll have a restriction on his minutes in this one. Still, Johnson has a game against the 76ers, so he might be able to put up a solid line even if his minutes are limited. Get him in your lineups.
