Stanley Johnson provided 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-7 3PT) two rebounds, one assist, and two steals across 36 minutes during Thursday’s 132-125 loss to the Celtics.
Johnson recorded season-highs in points, threes and minutes during Thursday’s loss. He joined the starting five for the second time this season while OG Anunoby was ruled out due to health and safety protocols. Johnson is a deep-league flyer at best, averaging 2.9 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 triples across 13.8 minutes. The Raptors next scheduled game is March 11th against the Hawks.
Stanley Johnson totaled eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and one rebound off the bench during Saturday’s 132-121 loss to the Hawks.
Johnson continues to have minimal impact off the Raptors bench. His eight points was a season-high and he’s logged 20 minutes or more in just six times this season. Johnson is averaging 3.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 triples across 15.1 minutes in 2020-21. The Raptors next scheduled game is Monday, away against the Grizzlies.
Stanley Johnson provided three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3PT, 1-2 FT) six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in Sunday’s 107-102 win over the Pacers.
Johnson got the starting nod when the Raptors ruled out Pascal Siakam (knee) ahead of Sunday’s game. He logged a season-high 31 minutes and chipped in a little bit of everything during Sunday’s win. Johnson is averaging 2.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals across 15.6 minutes in 2020-21. The 24-year-old can be used as a streamer if Siakam remains sidelined for Monday’s contest against the Pacers.
Stanley Johnson tallied seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3PT) eight rebounds, two steals and one block across 22 minutes during Tuesday's 100-93 loss to the 76ers.
Johnson surprisingly logged 22 minutes during Tuesday's loss after playing just one minute in his previous two contests. He was the first player to come off the Raptors bench and led the second unit in minutes. Johnson is best left on the waiver wire unless his role suddenly increases. The Raptors next scheduled game is Thursday, home against the Knicks.
Raptors' guard Stanley Johnson has decided to exercise his $3.8 million player option for the upcoming 2020-2021 season.
It's an easy decision for Johnson, as the former lottery pick has struggled mightily over his first five seasons. Still only 24-years-old, Johnson will look to build off of last seasons career-low averages of 2.4 points and 1.5 rebounds per game.
