Joe Johnson scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Mavs on Friday.
Joe Cool lived up to his old nickname with a clutch three to help earn this win. The Jazz went smaller more often in this one, so Johnson saw more than his 24 minutes from Monday. He could have some low-end value with Rodney Hood (knee) likely out another 1-2 weeks. He'll lose most of his value next month. Jan 21 - 2:52 AM

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and one assist in Monday's win 106-101 win over the Suns.

Johnson is getting extra run with Rodney Hood out for a couple weeks with a knee injury, although Joe Ingles is the new starter. Johnson scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and hit a huge 3-pointer to put the Jazz up one with just 42 seconds remaining. Johnson and the Jazz have two more games this week, so picking him (and/or Ingles) up might make sense, if you have someone you don't mind dropping.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (rest) will not play on Saturday against the Magic.

The Jazz have consistently held him in the upper teens since they've been healthy. The Jazz used Dante Exum for the first time in a while on Friday and he looked pretty good, so he's likely just going to slot into Johnson's minutes tonight. Alec Burks will also be in the rotation.
Jan 14 - 7:25 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

He scored a combined 15 points in his previous three games, but the lopsided score certainly helped him tonight. Johnson added three boards, two assists, two blocks, one steal and three triples in 21 minutes. Leave him on the wire while Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood are healthy.
Jan 3 - 10:29 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson hit just 4-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds and one steal ini 28 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Warriors.

Johnson got the start with Gordon Hayward nursing a finger injury, but didn't do much with his minutes, shot a wide-open air ball, and basically looked like an old guy our there. Joe Ingles got more minutes and production, and may be the guy to go with if Hayward misses more games.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

The Jazz will start Dante Exum, Shelvin Mack, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert against the Warriors on Thursday.

Even with the Warriors on a back-to-back set, the Jazz have their hands full tonight. Expect to see several Iso Joe moments like it's 2009.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 13 points on 4-of-10 shooting against the Suns on Tuesday.

The veteran wing added two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three triples in 29 minutes. Rodney Hood tweaked his right hamstring and didn't return, so Johnson is worth a look for owners in need of short-term value. The last time Hood missed a game on Dec. 1, Johnson started and scored 18 points in 33 minutes.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson started on Thursday and hit 6-of-9 shots for 18 points, three rebounds, and four assists.

Johnson played 32 minutes against his former team, draining four from beyond the arc. He now has seven 3-pointers in the last two games and has scored double-digit points in each of those games. The 18 points was the second most he has scored all season and the 32 minutes was the most he has played since November 2nd. He will have nights like these, but they do not come often. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is day-to-day, once he returns, Johnson will go back to the bench.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will start against the Heat on Thursday.

Revenge game? it was previously reported Joe Ingles would get the start, but coach Quin Snyder wants to go with Iso Joe against his former team. Johnson should get minutes close to 30 tonight and could have short-term value. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is only day-to-day for now.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 08:34:00 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 11 points on Tuesday vs. the Rockets with three rebounds, three assists and three triples in 26 minutes.

Rodney Hood left the game with a hamstring strain and didn't return after 20 minutes, so Johnson is the next man up if Hood has to miss time. He's been quiet lately, but he did average 13.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 triples in six starts at the beginning of the season. Just put him on your radar until we get an update on Hood.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (illness) played 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday, scoring three points with one assist and one turnover.

He should continue to see minutes in the 20s with Derrick Favors (knee) on the shelf. Johnson still won't be worth owning in most leagues.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (illness) will play Wednesday vs. Denver.

Johnson was sent home during Tuesday's practice, but he'll be on the court tonight and should resume his 20-minute role off the bench. He's clinging to late-round value on the year with averages of 9.6 points, 3.5 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.3 triples per contest, but he's not a great option in standard leagues.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 01:21:00 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson (illness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Johnson was sent to the doctor on Tuesday, and owners will need to check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood would be forced into heavy minutes and there would be more opportunity for Joe Ingles in the second unit. Stay tuned.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson played 28 minutes with 10 points, six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers against the Heat on Saturday.

Revenge game? While the Jazz may go slow and are known for their defense, coach Quin Snyder is not afraid to go small. Expect to see a few minutes going to Johnson while Derrick Favors (knee) is down.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 12:50:00 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson played 11 minutes against the Magic on Friday with two points and one rebound.

The return of Gordon Hayward is really hurting Johnson's playing time. He's played really well to this point, but minutes will be hard to come by while Hayward and Rodney Hood are healthy.
