Tyler Johnson News

Tyler Johnson    G  Heat

 

 

Tyler Johnson hit 3-of-8 shots for seven points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Raptors. Johnson went off for 19 points and a fat stat line on Friday, but Dwyane Wade is back in Miami, spelling bad news for Johnson. Wade played 21 minutes for 10 points, 11 rebounds and six assists tonight, and while Johnson will still have some nice lines, he's going to be very inconsistent while trying to compete for minutes with Wade and Wayne Ellington (15 points, seven boards, five 3-pointers).

Tyler Johnson scored 19 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three triples in 36 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday. TJ got the start, but there's no guarantee that it sticks. The Heat already have enough mouths to feed as it is, and Dwyane Wade will complicate things as well. This was Johnson's best game in a while and he's still just a borderline player to own in standard leagues.

Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Bucks on Friday. The Heat will still go small and Winslow is probably going to have to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo. Johnson has lost some value recently and the addition of Dwyane Wade didn't help him either.

Tyler Johnson moved to the bench on Saturday against the Pistons, finishing with three points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in just 22 minutes. Most of the starters played really well and Wayne Ellington was out there to close out, so it cost Johnson. He should still be able to get close to 30 minutes most nights and is still a hold in 12-team leagues, assuming there isn't a red-hot free agent out there.

Tyler Johnson will come off the bench on Saturday against the Pistons. A move to the bench isn't a bad thing for Johnson and he should still find minutes close to 30. Johnson may not be totally healthy from his ankle sprain last month, but he is still worth owning in standard leagues.

Johnson will move to the bench for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The Heat will scramble the lineup Saturday, going with Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo up front, with Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson on the wing. As a result, Johnson and James Johnson will both shift to the bench, while Hassan Whiteside will sit out with an injury.

Tyler Johnson posted just nine points over 34 minutes in Friday's start at Philadelphia. Johnson hit just 3-of-9 from the field, including 3-of-8 from behind the arc, while adding four assists, two rebounds and just one turnover. He didn't make a lot of mistakes, he just didn't do a whole lot of positive things, either. The good news is that he hasn't been limited by the ankle he tweaked earlier in the week, so he remains a decent fantasy option in most leagues.

Johnson managed eight points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 28 minutes during Monday's 95-88 win over the Mavericks. Making his second straight start after a five-game absence due to an ankle injury, Johnson contributed in every category except blocked shots while earning seven more minutes than he did during Saturday's win over the Hornets. Following Dion Waiters' season-ending ankle surgery, Johnson will likely remain a solid and well-rounded guard worthy of use in most formats.

Tyler Johnson (ankle) isn't on Miami's injury report prior to Monday's game in Dallas. Johnson tweaked his ankle in his return on Saturday, but avoided any lasting damage and should be ready to go vs. the Mavs. With four games on the schedule next week, Johnson is a solid fantasy option in most leagues.

Tyler Johnson tweaked his ankle on Saturday, but said he's going to be fine. "Somebody had stepped on my foot, and then I turned to go," Johnson said. "It was quick. The pain went away. It was just very temporary." He just came back from a five-game absence, but it sounds like he dodged a bullet. We'll leave him off the injury report for now, and expect a better game from him on Monday vs. the Mavericks.
