Amir Johnson scored six points in the starting lineup against the Raptors on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 14 minutes. He didn't get a fair chance in this game with his old team blowing out the 76ers. Johnson got the start for Joel Embiid tonight because of a back-to-back set, but the 76ers won't have another one until Nov. 29. That means this could be his last start for a while, assuming The Process stays healthy.

Amir Johnson will start at center against the Raptors on Saturday with Joel Embiid (rest) not playing. Revenge game? Johnson has played just 13.5 minutes per game and he only played 20.5 minutes per game in his 77 starts for Boston last year, so 20-24 minutes seems like a fair expectation tonight. It's tough to count on Jahlil Okafor here, but coach Brett Brown said he plans on using him. Dario Saric has also played four minutes at center, so he figures to be part of the recipe without The Process.

Amir Johnson is starting against the Celtics on Friday. Getting the start at the five is somewhat interesting here with Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes vying for a role behind Joel Embiid (knee). Johnson isn't worth drafting in most leagues while Holmes' fantasy supporters should still be fine with him as a late-round pick.

Amir Johnson (sprained right ankle) is probable for Friday's game vs. Boston. He's not going to pass up a revenge game even if it is the preseason. After sitting out Wednesday's opener, Johnson was officially limited at Thursday's practice. With Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor both playing well and Joel Embiid (knee) cleared for full contact, Johnson's outlook is poor.

Amir Johnson (ankle) will not suit up for Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Grizzlies. Johnson sprained his ankle during Tuesday's practice, so there's was really no way he'd be taking the court for tonight's meaningless game. We still don't know the severity of his ankle injury, but if it's a bad one, he might not play at all during the preseason. Johnson is going to be more of a mentor than a rotation player in Philly this season, so there's no reason to target him on draft day.
