Joe Johnson shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he chipped in 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and one block.
Derrick Favors (bone bruise) is out indefinitely and the Jazz had been playing well with Johnson in his spot, but they opted to play the matchups with Boris Diaw starting tonight. Johnson logged 23 minutes on Wednesday and should hover in the mid-20s whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Mar 23 - 2:00 AM

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will come off the bench vs. New York on Wednesday.

Boris Diaw will start and draw the matchup vs. Kristaps Porzingis, but the minute allotment shouldn't change too much here.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana, posting just two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal over 31 minutes.

Johnson missed all four of his 3-pointer attempts and never did seem to get comfortable. The veteran has now missed 28 of his past 41 field goal attempts for a dismal 31.7 percent from the floor over the past four outings. Until he gets on track he isn't helping in any fantasy format.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

The Jazz have missed Derrick Favors (knee) more than they thought and have lost three of their last five. Johnson has not exactly performed well in those games, averaging 10.2 points, 4.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. He's not really a fantasy option and would also lose value once Rodney Hood (knee) comes back.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson started in place of Derrick Favors (knee) on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 29 minutes.

Favors is "out indefinitely" with a bone bruise, and coach Quin Snyder pulled a switcheroo with Johnson starting over Boris Diaw at PF tonight. As long as Favors is out, Snyder said he will deal with the power forward spot depending on matchups. That makes it hard to trust Johnson on a nightly basis, but he's worth a look as a punt play when he's starting.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

With the Pistons using a hybrid-type forward in Tobias Harris, the Jazz will go smaller and use Gordon Hayward more at the four. Johnson was hit and miss in his two starts in this small-ball lineup with a 16-point game against the Rockets and a five-point effort vs. the Thunder. He has a decent chance for production against the Pistons while Joe Ingles also benefits.
Mar 15 - 6:14 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson posted 14 points with three rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes on Monday against the Clippers.

Johnson came off the bench in Monday's win, but he was still very productive from the floor, including a pair of 3-pointers. The veteran is averaging 11.7 points with 2.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists over his past three games. Even though Boris Diaw slid into the starting five with Derrick Favors (knee) sidelined again, Johnson was by far the more productive option.
Mar 14 - 12:31 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will come off the bench against the Clippers on Monday.

Derrick Favors (knee) is out again, but the Jazz are going to move Boris Diaw into the starting lineup to match up with Blake Griffin. Both Diaw and Johnson belong on the wire in standard leagues.
Mar 13 - 8:24 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored five points in 19 minutes with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Joe at the four lineup worked against the Rockets on Wednesday, but it obviously didn't work today. Johnson won't have much value even when he's starting as a small-ball four.
Mar 11 - 5:42 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson returned from a groin injury on Wednesday to score 16 points on 5-of-10 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, hitting two 3-pointers with two rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

Derrick Favors (sore knee) was out tonight due to an injury he can't seem to shake, which allowed Johnson to earn a rare start for Utah. The veteran missed his previous three games, but even at full strength he hasn't been a fantasy commodity outside of deep leagues this season. View him with skepticism while Favors is day-to-day.
Mar 9 - 12:21 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (groin) will start vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

George Hill (toe) and Derrick Favors (knee) are both out of commission tonight, so the Jazz will be hard-pressed to keep up with the run-and-gun Rockets for 48 minutes. Johnson may be somewhat limited as he returns from his own injury, so he's not the safest bet for immediate value.
Mar 8 - 7:56 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (groin) will play Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

With both George Hill (toe) and Derrick Favors (knee) on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for Johnson, and there's a chance he could start if Utah wants to try and matchup better with Houston's small-ball lineup. Stay tuned.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (groin) was able to go through portions of shootaround, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston.

The groin injury has forced Johnson to spend the past three games on the sidelines, and while him getting through portions of Wednesday's shootaround is a positive sign, it still seems unlikely that he'll be able to take the court tonight. Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.
Mar 8 - 2:20 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

He's already missed three games in a row, so the Jazz will be cautious with the veteran wing until he's 100 percent. If Johnson is out again, Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood will continue to pick up the slack.
Mar 7 - 9:01 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (groin) will not play Monday vs. New Orleans.

This will be Johnson's third straight game watching from the sidelines, and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets. With Johnson out, there will be some more minutes for Joe Ingles in the second unit.
