James Johnson News
New Orleans Pelicans forward James Johnson (knee) will suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. The veteran forward is dealing with a bum knee, but the Pelicans need him with their team being shorthanded. Wesley Iwundu (shoulder) has been ruled out, which means more playing time for Johnson. He's looking like a favorable streaming option, assuming his knee doesn't slow him down.
New Orleans Pelicans forward James Johnson (groin) will suit up for Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets. However, Johnson will be on a minutes limit while he continues to battle with a lingering groin issue. Naji Marshall won't be much of a fantasy option with Johnson back in the rotation. Johnson won't be a great target with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram healthy.
New Orleans Pelicans power forward James Johnson (adductor) has been bumped up to probable to participate in Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets. Johnson has been on the sidelines for each of New Orleans' last four games, with Naji Marshall and Wenyen Gabriel likely to see slightly reduced roles once the veteran is back in the mix. In 11 games since joining the Pelicans, Johnson has seen less than 25 minutes in an outing just twice; he has upped his scoring average to 9.7 PPG in that span, giving him fringe season-long viability in deeper season-long formats. Barring a setback, fantasy managers can operate under the assumption that Johnson will be on the floor Wednesday.
New Orleans Pelicans forward James Johnson (groin) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. He missed each of the last two games due to a groin issue. His return will make Naji Marshall have less streaming appeal. Johnson probably isn't worth a look in most fantasy formats right now. However, he could have a bigger role, assuming Steven Adams (ankle) sits out.
