Stanley Johnson News
Toronto Raptors forward Stanley Johnson had the best game of his career in Thursday's loss to Chicago, leading all scorers with 35 points on 12-for-22 shooting. He was 6-for-13 with the three-ball and went 5-for-7 at the charity stripe with 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals. The Raptors have pulled the plug on their season, which gives bench guys like Johnson a chance to show what they can do in meaningful minutes. Expect him, and the likes of Malachi Flynn and Jalen Harris, to be busy in the final regular-season games as well.
Toronto Raptors small/power forward Stanley Johnson will rejoin the starting five for Monday's game against Houston in place of OG Anunoby (rest). Johnson's last two starting gigs saw him play just 14 minutes, so DFS managers may be best served playing it cautious with the athletic wing. The absence of Anunoby is most relevant to Norman Powell, who dropped 43 points in his last outing without Anunoby available. While Johnson's only two double-digit scoring performances this year have come as a starter, he'll be a finicky option, one that can be expected to return to the second unit Wednesday when Anunoby gets back into the mix.
Milwaukee Bucks forwards Stanley Johnson, Jason Smith and four second-round picks have been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans for power forward Nikola Mirotic Thursday as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Johnson was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks just yesterday from the Detroit Pistons in a separate deal. Johnson was originally selected by the Pistons in the first round of the 2015 draft and is still young at just 22 years of age will likely get minutes for the Pelicans at both small and power forward positions. Johnson has averaged this season 7.5 points with 3.6 rebounds a contest. Smith, on the other hand, hasn't gotten much action as he is only playing 9.4 minutes a game. Next up for the Pelicans are the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, expect both players to sit because of travel and then getting a chance to meet their new teammates.
Detroit Pistons guard/forward Stanley Johnson has been traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for center Thon Maker. Johnson could use a change of scenery, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. He'll battle Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton for minutes, so fantasy owners should probably just leave him on the waiver wire. Maker will soak up the backup center minutes in Detroit, but won't do enough worth owning in fantasy leagues.
