James Johnson scores 18 points, forces four blocks in win vs. Rockets

James Johnson scored 18 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3PT, 1-5 FT) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, four blocks, and a turnover across 33 minutes during Sunday's 122-115 win over the Houston Rockets.

Fantasy Impact:

The veteran forward earned a start in the Pelicans' lineup due to injuries and capitalized on the opportunity, finishing with 18 points and four blocks in a great individual performance. Johnson is only relevant when All-Star Zion Williamson (thumb) is unable to suit up, as he has missed New Orleans' last three games due to a sprained right thumb. Johnson holds great value against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday if Zion remains out, so continue monitoring the injury reports as tip-off gets closer.
