Amir Johnson (sprained right AC joint in shoulder) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 in Cleveland. Johnson tweaked his shoulder during Game 3, and while he was able to initially play through it, it sounds like it swelled up a bit overnight. He's headed for an MRI, so we'll have a better idea on his status for Game 4 once those results are made public, but if he is forced to the sidelines that would open up some minutes for guys like Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko. Gerald Green could also return to the starting five if Johnson is indeed unavailable on Tuesday night. Stay tuned.

Amir Johnson started on Sunday but had just two points and two rebounds in nine minutes. Johnson sprained his right shoulder during the first quarter but he did return, briefly, so we'll leave him off the injury report. He was torched defensively by Kevin Love, who made seven 3-pointers in the first half, and frontcourt reserves Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko had much more success tonight.

Amir Johnson will start Game 3 on Sunday, as expected. The move sends Gerald Green back to the bench. Johnson's minutes are severely limited even when he's starting, so there's no real benefit for DFS purposes here.

Amir Johnson is expected to start in Game 3 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday. Coach Brad Stevens just can't seem to settle on his starting five in the playoffs. Johnson is only averaging 10.6 minutes per game in the postseason, so DFS owners will want to look the other direction. Expect Gerald Green to return to the bench.

Amir Johnson will move to the bench against the Cavs for Game 2 on Friday. After a rough Game 1 from Johnson and based on how that starting lineup hasn't fared well vs. Cleveland, Johnson may not be getting minutes. Jonas Jerebko could also be in the mix for this game while Jaylen Brown should play more, as well.

Amir Johnson didn't play after halftime during Wednesday's loss to the visiting Cavaliers. He failed to defend well vs. the Cavs' frontcourt and offered nothing offensively, so coach Brad Stevens opted to start Kelly Olynyk in the third quarter. Tyler Zeller even cracked the rotation tonight, which doesn't bode well for Johnson.
