F - SAS
SAS F Keldon Johnson notched 17 points (5-7 FG, 5-8 FT) while chipping in three assists, three rebounds, and one block during a 109-115 loss to the 76ers.
Johnson excelled across his 33 minutes of work on Sunday. Despite the loss to the 76ers, the veteran notched 17 points, his eighth straight game of double-digit points. He continues to produce fantasy numbers but relies on his scoring and rebounding ability to maintain as a stable fantasy asset.
SA Spurs Keldon Johnson contributed 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and one assist across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 128-124 loss to the Rockets.
It was an efficient outing for the young forward in his return from the health and safety protocols. His playing 24 minutes and posting his highest point total since December 28th is a great sign. Outside of rebounds and points, he doesn't offer much to fantasy managers and is a low-end asset in 12-team leagues.
Keldon Johnson is questionable to play on Wednesday against Houston.
Johnson, Derrick White, and Devin Vassell all need one more negative covid test to clear health and safety protocols. There is reportedly optimism that can happen. They all last played on January 5 and would be a huge boost for the Spurs back court if they can all return.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Spurs have placed Keldon Johnson in the league's health and safety protocols.
On Thursday, the Spurs placed seven players in the NBA health and safety protocols. Derrick White, Doug McDermott, Keldon Johnson, Thad Young, Lonnie Walker, and Devin Vassell. With a short-handed rotation, the Spurs will rely on Dejounte Murray as usual and likely newly signed Tyler Johnson will slot in for more minutes.
SA Spurs G Keldon Johnson finished Monday's 110-104 loss to the Jazz with 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 34 minutes.
It was a decent outing for the swingman on Monday. Johnson managed to put together a 13 point and seven-rebound effort on just 5-13 shooting. With Dejounte Murray out of the lineup, he was asked to take on a larger scoring effort but was really muted by the Jazz defense. He still makes for an excellent streamer with big upside as he was starting to find his footing in recent weeks.
