Wes Johnson scored 11 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three treys in 20 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday.
Luc Mbah a Moute is the starter at SF for now, but this position battle could be fluid all season. Johnson has upside, but when you throw Alan Anderson and Paul Pierce into the mix as well, this looks like a situation most fantasy owners will want to ignore. Oct 19 - 12:24 AM

Wes Johnson scored eight points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, adding two rebounds and two treys in 22 minutes.

Alan Anderson also played well with 10 points in 11 minutes, while starting SF Luc Mbah a Moute was invisible. The starting SF position is up for grabs, so Johnson could steal the job with a strong preseason. We'll keep an eye on him, but most fantasy owners should avoid this situation.
Oct 5 - 1:37 AM

Unrestricted free agent Wesley Johnson has agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal to re-sign with the Clippers.

The Clippers are not getting Kevin Durant, so they're getting most of the band back together. Johnson was actually pretty decent while Blake Griffin was hurt, and now Jeff Green is in Orlando, as well. Johnson will turn 29 this month and played just 20.8 minutes per game last year. His field goal percentage and 3-point percentage has dropped in each of his last two seasons, as well.
Jul 2 - 11:31 PM

Wesley Johnson will decline his $1.2 million player option for 2016-17, according to his agent.

Johnson would like to re-sign with the Clippers but he'll be looking for a pay raise in free agency, which he should get with the salary cap increasing. The veteran is coming off a quiet season during which he averaged just 6.9 points on 40.4 percent shooting, 1.3 threes, 3.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 20.8 minutes per game.
Jun 1 - 7:15 PM

Wes Johnson is expected to decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

His player option is only worth $1.2 million, so the swingman should get a decent raise due to the rising salary cap. Johnson averaged just 6.9 points, 3.1 boards, 0.7 blocks, 1.1 steals and 1.3 3-pointers in 20.8 minutes per game this season, so he shouldn't be on fantasy draft boards in most cases.

Wes Johnson hit five 3-pointers to finish Wednesday's game with 19 points, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes off the bench.

Johnson can offer sneaky fantasy value in the right role, as he chips in across the board with subtle defensive stats, but tonight's line is distorted by the Clips' decision to rest five key players. Jeff Green added 12 points, seven boards and five assists, Paul Pierce added six points and three rebounds in 22 minutes, and the Clips head into the playoffs with home court advantage vs. the Blazers.
Apr 14 - 1:19 AM

Wes Johnson (plantar fasciitis) will play Sunday vs. Dallas.

He's dealing with plantar fasciitis in both of his feet, so he could be limited tonight. With all the Clippers starters returning to the court tonight, it's unlikely Johnson will be able to make an impact in most fantasy leagues.
Apr 10 - 2:04 PM

Wes Johnson (plantar fasciitis) will not play Friday vs. Utah.

He's dealing with plantar fasciitis in both of his feet, so he may be looking at an extended absence here. He's been extremely inconsistent this season, so there's no reason to hang onto him through the injury. Jeff Green (knee) is being listed as questionable, so Paul Pierce and Luc Mbah a Moute could be looking at heavy minutes Friday night. Neither guy is a great target in most settings, though.
Apr 7 - 5:09 PM

Wes Johnson said that he's dealing with plantar fasciitis in both of his feet.

"When I walk, run, jump, dealing with it is constant," Johnson said. "You feel it in everything you do." Johnson sat out Wednesday's win over the Lakers, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see him miss the final four games of the season for the Clippers. With Blake Griffin healthy, Johnson is not worth owning in any league.
Apr 7 - 2:56 PM

Wes Johnson (foot) will not play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

The Clippers are also without Jamal Crawford (rest) and Austin Rivers (ankle), but both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will play in back-to-back games. Paul Pierce and Jeff Green will get a few extra minutes with Johnson unavailable.
Apr 6 - 9:08 PM

Wes Johnson will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

Blake Griffin will draw the start tonight, and with Griffin back on the active roster it'll be tough for Johnson to do much of anything in Los Angeles. Lub Mbah a Moute and Jeff Green's value also take a massive hit with Griffin back on the active roster.

Wes Johnson busted out of his shooting slump during Sunday's easy win over the Nuggets, tallying 13 points, four boards, three 3-pointers, three steals, one block, one assist and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Johnson had been pretty awful up to this point, owning averages of just 4.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.5 treys and 0.5 steals on 30.0 percent shooting in his previous four games. He busted out of his shooting slump against a weak defense, and got some extra minutes with the game being a blowout. However, with Blake Griffin (hand, quad) nearing his return, Johnson makes for an unappealing add in most formats as his minutes figure to take a massive hit once Griffin is back in the rotation.
Mar 27 - 6:18 PM

Wes Johnson failed to connect on a field goal Sunday, finishing 0-of-8 from the field with three boards and two steals in 19 minutes off the bench.

Johnson was 0-of-6 from deep and he didn't get to the free throw line. It's even more disappointing since he didn't have to contend with Jeff Green (concussion) for playing time, and even deep-league owners should be looking for safer alternatives with just 13 games left in the Clips' regular season.
Mar 20 - 9:31 PM

Wes Johnson finished scoreless vs. the Spurs on Tuesday, missing both of his shots from the field.

It was a rough night for Johnson as he only had one assist and one block to his name in 21 minutes. Paul Pierce (toe) is still out, but Johnson didn't exactly make a case for more minutes tonight. He's just too inconsistent to trust in standard leagues.
Mar 15 - 11:28 PM

Wes Johnson will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Cavs, with Luc Mbah a Moute (eye) back in the starting lineup.

The Clippers will start Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Jeff Green, Mbah a Moute and DeAndre Jordan on Sunday, and Johnson's value will take a decent sized hit with the return to the second unit. Johnson isn't a great option in most leagues today with a tough matchup against the Cavs.
