Cameron Johnson recorded 14 points (4-15 FG, 2-11 3PT, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 32 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.
Johnson got the start Sunday with Jae Crowder getting the night off. The UNC product's minutes and points tend to fluctuate quite a bit per game. In his last 10 outings, the talented forward is averaging 16.5 points and 27.5 minutes. Although he has scoring upside because of his three point ability, Johnson's minutes are not optimal when the Suns are fully loaded. The 26-year-old will look to stay productive when the Suns host the Lakers on Tuesday.

Johnson will miss his tenth straight game on Wednesday. Mikal Bridges and Landry Shamet should both continue to see big minutes with Johnson absent. In the last nine games, Bridges is averaging 38.9 minutes and Shamet is averaging 25.4 minutes per game. Both averages are considerably more than their seasonal averages.
