Wes Johnson (personal) will not play on Monday vs. the Thunder.
Johnson is only averaging 13.8 minutes over his last five games, so this won't have many fantasy implications. Alan Anderson could pick up a few extra minutes in his absence, but shouldn't be trusted in any format. Jan 16 - 9:37 PM

Wes Johnson (ankle) played 15 minutes on Monday vs. the Suns with three points, two rebounds, two blocks and one triple on 1-of-2 shooting.

With Johnson healthy again, Paul Pierce (DNP-CD) won't be a consistent part of the rotation. Johnson is not a fantasy asset even with all the injuries in Los Angeles. We'll let you know if that changes.

Wes Johnson (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Suns.

He only lasted for two minutes in his previous game, so he simply can't be trusted in fantasy lineups tonight. Paul Pierce won't be relied on as much if Johnson's ankle holds up.
Jan 2 - 9:01 PM

Wes Johnson (sprained left ankle) is questionable to play Monday vs. Phoenix.

Johnson only made it to the court for two minutes during Saturday's loss to the Thunder, so he's obviously not 100 percent recovered from the ankle injury. If he can't give it a go on Monday, Alan Anderson and Paul Pierce would likely split his minutes, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Jan 1 - 3:38 PM

Wes Johnson (ankle) played just two minutes with one rebound against the Thunder on Saturday.

Obviously he wasn't healthy despite saying he would play. Johnson may fall out of the rotation once Chris Paul (hamstring) is back.
Jan 1 - 12:02 AM

Updating a previous item, Wes Johnson (ankle) said he will play against the Thunder on Saturday.

Well that was fast. Coach Doc Rivers said he didn't expect Johnson to go, but he should be out there unless something happens in warmups. If he is somewhat healthy, he could be looking at minutes in the upper 20s tonight. He'll be risky to use at less than 100 percent, though.

Wes Johnson (ankle) is unlikely to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Clippers are really going to have to go small a ton tonight with Johnson likely out. Plus, we should see Alan Anderson in the rotation and he could even start. Anderson is not a fantasy option right now.

Wes Johnson (ankle) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

He suffered the injury on Friday and X-rays were negative. The Clippers were really shorthanded on the perimeter on Friday night, which allowed Raymond Felton and Alan Anderson to get some added run. If the Clippers are really shorthanded again, it would likely be a similar situation tonight.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 02:07:00 PM

Wes Johnson sprained his left ankle in Friday's loss to the Rockets.

X-rays were negative, but he's going to be listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Thunder. Johnson finished with 10 points, five rebounds, one assist, three steals and two triples in 24 minutes, but look for Luc Mbah a Moute and Paul Pierce to pick up his minutes if he can't go.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 11:07:00 PM

Wes Johnson moved into the starting lineup in place of Paul Pierce on Monday vs. the Nuggets, but scored just seven points on 2-of-5 shooting.

Johnson got into some foul trouble and wasn't able to get into a groove offensively. He salvaged his line with four assists, two rebounds, three blocks and a triple, but there are better short-term adds in Los Angeles including Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford and Raymond Felton.

Wes Johnson played a season-high 27 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday with eight points, nine rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was out of the rotation earlier this month, but he's now trending up with Blake Griffin (knee) out of the lineup. Plus, the Clippers could be thin at guard and would absolutely need Johnson to get minutes in the 20s with guys like Austin Rivers likely needing to play more at the one and two. If Chris Paul (hamstring) is out, Wes could be in the mix as a DFS punt against the Mavs.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 02:31:00 AM

Wes Johnson was a DNP-CD on Thursday.

After getting double-digit minutes for five straight, the Clippers bumped Johnson out of the rotation. If he stays out, they would mean more run for Paul Pierce, Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 03:22:00 PM

Wes Johnson (heel) will play Monday vs. the Raptors.

Johnson has spent the past five games on the sidelines, but he'll be back in action tonight, splitting the small forward minutes with Luc Mbah a Moute and Alan Anderson. There's no fantasy value here.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 02:23:00 PM

Wes Johnson (heel) is hopeful to return for Monday's game vs. the Raptors.

He has missed five games in a row, but he's expected to return any day now. Johnson was only averaging 14.1 minutes per game prior to the injury, so fantasy owners can comfortably leave him on the wire.

Wes Johnson (heel) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

He doesn't have a timetable to return and the Clippers continue to rule him out early. Luc Mbah Moute has played well in reality, but there isn't much fantasy upside.
