James Johnson totaled 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 27 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 128-116 loss to the Nuggets on Sunday.
Johnson continues to provide value while coming off the bench for Minnesota. His ability to stuff the stat-sheet makes him an intriguing play, and with him getting ample opportunity to showcase his ability could lead to him being an even more strategic piece in the Timberwolves' rotation. In his five games with the Timberwolves, Johnson is averaging 25.6 minutes of playing time, 9.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 1.8 steals per game. Despite his fouling woes, Johnson is certainly worth keeping on your radar and should be considered a value-add to your roster in deep leagues.
