Wes Johnson scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.
He is playing both forward spots for the Clippers, which is something coach Doc Rivers has done before. Even with some added pace helping Johnson's strengths, he still won't play enough while the team is healthy. Although, we all know that's not exactly Danilo Gallinari's calling card.

Wes Johnson scored 16 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

With Danilo Gallinari (foot) and Sam Dekker (oblique) missing time, it's possible that Johnson starts against the Lakers next week. Still, he's not worth drafting in almost any league unless Gallo and Dekker are ruled out.
Oct 13 - 1:04 AM

Wes Johnson made the most of a fill-in start on Sunday, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting, including a 2-of-2 mark from downtown.

L.A. was playing without Danilo Gallinari (mid-foot sprain), Austin Rivers (glute) and Sam Dekker (oblique), which thrust Johnson into the starting five. He did little beyond scoring, however, adding just two rebounds without any assists, steals or blocks in 23 minutes of action. His typical bench role isn't conducive to reliable fantasy value.
Oct 8 - 7:03 PM

Wes Johnson will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Trail Blazers.

Both Danilo Gallinari (foot) and Sam Dekker (oblique) are out for today's exhibition, so Johnson is the obvious choice to start at the three-spot. Neither Gallinari nor Dekker's injuries seem all that serious though, so chances are Johnson won't be playing significant minutes once the regular season begins.
Oct 8 - 2:26 PM

Wes Johnson had 10 points, four rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes off L.A.'s bench on Sunday, making 4-of-5 shots with one 3-pointer.

He shot with confidence and should have a role in the second unit, but it will take an injury or two to spring him loose. It's worth noting that the 30-year-old has seen declines in nearly every category over the past three years, including FG percentage and FT percentage.
Oct 2 - 1:19 AM

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.
Jan 3 - 1:52 AM

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.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 06:52:00 PM

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.
