He made just two appearances with the Jazz, and while he did play pretty well, the Jazz likely won't bring him back in order to have more flexibility for the Feb. 19 traded deadline. Leave Johnson on the wire. Feb 7 - 12:42 PM

Chris Johnson scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting (3-of-5 from deep) with two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 21 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Suns.

Johnson might end up signing a second 10-day contract if Joe Ingles' back injury keeps him out. The Jazz are extremely shallow on the wings and there could be some short-term, deep-league appeal so take a look if that applies to you.

The Utah Jazz have signed Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

The Jazz decided against signing Elliot Williams to a new deal, meaning johnson will now have a chance to stake his claim for a spot in Utah's rotation. While Johnson will be available to play on Wednesday, owners in deeper leagues would be advised to use a wait-and-see approach here.

The Jazz are reportedly set to offer Chris Johnson a 10-day contract.

Johnson was waived by the 76ers earlier in the season after averaging 6.0 points and 2.9 rebounds on 31.7 percent shooting from the field. While the Jazz are in need of a swingman, Johnson is unlikely to offer much value in most leagues. Leave him on the wire for now.

Chris Johnson has signed a deal to play in Turkey with Turk Telekom Ankara.

Johnson was waived by the 76ers in November and will now take his talents overseas for the remainder of the season. 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds.The 24-year-old has averaged just 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in 71 NBA games, so he doesn't hold any fantasy value even if he finds his way back to the NBA.

Chris Johnson will be waived by the 76ers on Saturday to make room for Robert Covington.

It's not surprising to see the 76ers waive one of their better rotational players, as they have no intention of trying to win in the near future. Luc Mbah a Moute took Johnson's spot in the starting lineup, but is not worth a look in almost all leagues. Johnson can be dropped across the board while owners should take a wait-and-see approach with Covington.

Chris Johnson led Philly's reserves on Sunday with 16 points, going 4-of-9 from beyond the arc and 2-of-2 at the free throw line.

He was 5-of-12 from the field overall, while chipping in one rebound, one assist, three steals and two blocks. He could easily resume starting for the chaotic Sixers, possibly as soon as Thursday, but Philly's uncertain rotations make him a very risky pickup in standard formats.

Chris Johnson came off the bench against the Heat on Saturday with five points, two rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

He had his chance in the starting lineup, but nobody can keep Luc Mbah a Moute off the bench, apparently. Johnson can be dropped in just about all leagues.

Chris Johnson will shift to the 76ers bench for Saturday's game vs. Miami.

He shot 1-of-11 from the field on Friday and the Sixers are searching high and low for offensive production, so it's not surprising to see him demoted in favor of Luc Mbah a Moute. The questionable status of K.J. McDaniels (hip) gives Johnson a shot at substantial playing time despite his bench role.

Chris Johnson hit just 1-of-11 shots for four points on Friday against the Bucks, but did manage to chip in with eight rebounds, one block and a 3-point bucket in his 29 minutes.

Johnson's shooting is bound to fluctuate given his role and how bad the Sixers are, so the key for owners to watch out for are his minutes and starting status -- both of which look to be in the right place for now. Whether or not those minutes translate into standard league value is questionable, but he's worth a look for now.

Chris Johnson started at shooting guard and hit 5-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points on Wednesday.

He'll return to obscurity once Michael Carter-Williams is healthy, but until that happens, he could be a cheap source of stats in both weekly and daily leagues.

Chris Johnson will start at shooting guard for the Sixers on Wednesday.

He'll join Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims against another laughable starting five of Indiana. Johnson did have some nice stretches with the Celtics last season and the team does need all the help on the wing they can get, so he's worth watching in deep leagues. Those who added K.J. McDaniels should not be worried as he will still see minutes off the bench in the second unit.

Chris Johnson got his chance in the starting lineup for the 76ers, making 5-of-13 from the field for 15 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He barely played coming into this game with 14 or less minutes, but he got his chance tonight. Johnson was somewhat effective on a more talented Celtics team last season, so he could get it going. Plus, he has some range and steals the ball a bit. Of course, this development should not have your attention in anything but a very deep league.

Chris Johnson started against the Pistons on Thursday.

He hasn't started or played more than 14 minutes in any preseason action yet, so this is interesting. Elliot Williams was terrific, but has slowed down a bit lately. We'll keep an eye on this game. Of course, this development is only a concern to deep leagues.

The 76ers claimed swingman Chris Johnson off waivers on Sunday.

Johnson was waived by the Celtics on Thursday, but Philly quickly added his fully unguaranteed contract to their training camp roster. The Sixers' lineup is tumultuous enough that Johnson could stick around for opening night, but he's not worth fantasy owners' attention.
