Jazz sign G/F Chris Johnson.
The Bucks let him go today and the Jazz didn't hesitate to grab him. Considering Rodney Hood (illness) is still not well, Johnson may get some minutes. He'll compete with Elijah Millsap for playing time. Johnson is only worth a look in very deep leagues. Mar 26 - 7:57 PM

Chris Johnson's second 10-day contract with the Bucks has expired, and the team has decided not to sign him for the remainder of the regular season.

Head coach Jason Kidd said he believes Johnson will land a 10-day deal with the Jazz, so we'll be watching for that. However, he's going to have a very limited role wherever he winds up, and until he finds a new team, Johnson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Bucks re-signed G/F Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract.

The Bucks will now have to decide whether to keep him for the season or release him after this 10-day deal concludes.
Mar 16 - 12:48 PM

Chris Johnson is expected to get another 10-day contract when his current deal expires on Sunday according to head coach Jason Kidd.

He is averaging just 4.5 points in 19.5 minutes per game through four appearances with the Bucks, so this news doesn't have a lot of fantasy implications. Leave Johnson on the wire.
Mar 14 - 2:19 PM

Chris Johnson played 24 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday with two points, one board and two steals.

He's playing about 20 minutes per game with the Bucks, averaging just 5.3 points, 2.0 boards 1.0 assists, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 treys in his previous three. Johnson is only worth a look in very deep leagues, but just remember he will lose playing time once Jerryd Bayless and/or O.J. Mayo come back.
Mar 12 - 9:56 PM

The Bucks have officially signed Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract.

Johnson will add some depth to Milwaukee's backcourt, but he's unlikely to do enough statistically to warrant any attention in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 6 - 4:55 PM

The Bucks will reportedly sign Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract.

Johnson will join a crowded rotation in Milwaukee, and he's very unlikely to earn enough floor time to be able to offer much of anything to a fantasy squad in most leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 6 - 10:43 AM

Chris Johnson's 10-day contract with the Jazz expired on Saturday, opening up a roster spot for the Jazz.

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.
Feb 7 - 3:25 AM

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.
Jan 28 - 12:21 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 2:52 PM

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.
