James Johnson only scored nine points but was solid elsewhere with seven assists, two rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two triples in just 20 minutes vs. Orlando on Friday.
This game was a blowout so you can ignore the low minutes. Johnson has been getting run as a backup five and four and that will continue with Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) ruled out for at least another two weeks. He's been a strong pickup, posting 8th-round value in 9-cat over his last nine games with 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.8 blocks and 0.7 triples. And with coach Ryan Saunders praising him for his leadership, we don't think his minutes are going anywhere for the time being. Mar 06 11:58 pm (EST)
