Joe Johnson scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.
He had a wide-open look for a 3-pointer in the corner that would've tied the game 19 seconds left, but it did not go down. The Jazz playing from behind may have helped Johnson's playing time along with Hood being dinged up, so don't expect him to hit 27 minutes too often. This decent game doesn't really make him an add in standard leagues. Jan 20 - 1:22 AM

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson found the range on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-9 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with three 3-pointers, scoring 16 points in 33 minutes vs. the Wizards.

The 17-year veteran continues to log solid minutes for Utah, which could be trying to bolster his appeal around the league -- with an expiring $10.5 million contract, he might attract a team in need of a backup scorer. He added four rebounds, four assists and three steals tonight, but all-around games like this are very much the exception.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 20 points with seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He did close this game out with six points in the final four minutes as the Jazz played from behind -- it was not garbage time. Johnson scored 20 points combined in his previous four games, so most fantasy owners can ignore this one unless you're streaming in a deep league.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson shot 1-of-5 from the field to finish Wednesday's blowout loss with two points, three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

Johnson wasn't immune to Utah's team-wide struggles tonight -- the only bright spot was Thabo Sefolosha, who had 12 points, three boards, two blocks and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench. OKC held Utah to 35.6 percent shooting tonight and this is a game most Jazz players would like to forget -- so would their fantasy owners.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson played 29 minutes and hit 5-of-12 shots for 12 points, three rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss.

He was 0-for-5 from downtown, or his line would have been better, and he might keep starting for as long as Derrick Favors is out with his eye/concussion issue. Johnson's far from a must-own player, but he's at least worth a look in deeper leagues as long as he's starting.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will remain in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Rockets.

Johnson logged 30 minutes as a starter sans Rudy Gobert (knee) and Derrick Favors (eye) on Saturday, but only managed to contribute eight points, one rebound and three assists on 4-of-12 shooting. He should again see heavy minutes tonight for the banged-up Jazz, but he's not much more than a low-end streamer in deep leagues.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson and Ekpe Udoh will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

The Jazz will indeed go small with Joe Johnson at the four, which isn't surprising because they used that lineup last night and they went with him at the four a ton last season. Johnson may only be limited because he only played 15 minutes in his return on Friday, but he should be able to clear 20 minutes in this one. Expect more Alec Burks in the second unit, as well.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) has been cleared to play vs. Boston on Friday.

Rodney Hood (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday and Alec Burks has been playing well lately, so Johnson's minutes are likely to come at the expense of Jonas Jerebko. Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 30, of course, so we're not expecting him to log heavy playing time in his first game back.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) will not play vs. Chicago on Wednesday.

He went through shootaround and his re-evaluation must not have been good enough to give him the green light tonight. With him out, that should mean Jonas Jerebko (illness) will be in the rotation again while this should also help Alec Burks keep his minutes in the 20s even with Rodney Hood back.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) participated during shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.

The Jazz are reportedly expecting Johnson to get back to the court this week, and with him getting through shootaround, it seems there's a good chance he'll be returning from his two-month layoff tonight. With Rodney Hood (ankle) and Johnson getting healthy, Alec Burks' minutes could start trending towards the lower-20s.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reported on Tuesday that the Jazz are expecting Johnson to get back to the court sometime this week, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there on Wednesday night. We'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround, but with Johnson on the cusp of a return and Rodney Hood (ankle) cleared for Wednesday's game, guys like Alec Burks and Thabo Sefolosha could start to see their playing time dwindle.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) is expected to return to the court at some point this week, according to sources of Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Johnson was limited to non-contact work during Monday's practice, so Wednesday's game in Chicago seems unrealistic, but Friday's game in Boston or Saturday's game in Cleveland could be in play. He's been out since October, so he'll likely be eased back into things, but he might chip away at Alec Burks' playing time once he's fully up to speed.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) went through the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

The Jazz are hopeful that they'll be able to get Johnson back at some point during their five-game road trip, and him getting through portions of Monday's practice is certainly a positive sign. Still, until he's going through full-contact work we can't assume he's close, so Wednesday's game in Chicago seems unrealistic. He'll likely be eased back into things, and it's unclear what his role will look like with Alec Burks playing well, so he's not a great stash in most settings.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (wrist) is out for at least two more weeks.

He visited a hand specialist on Tuesday and there has been some progress. The Jazz have gone to Thabo Sefolosha, Jonas Jerebko and Alec Burks more, so expect that to continue until around Christmas.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (right wrist) met with a hand specialist on Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Johnson was initially targeting a return to the court by mid-November, but now it's looking like he won't be back to the court until December at the earliest. He did show signs of improvement at his checkup, but the 16-year vet simply needs a bit more time. Donovan Mitchell, Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles will all help fill the void in his absence.
