F - TOR
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.
Stanley Johnson totaled 23 points (9-16 FGM, 4-8 3PT, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes in the 117-109 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday.
Johnson is not regularly in the rotation for the Raptors but he played valuable minutes while Toronto rested some starters. Johnson went off for 23 points coming off the bench while also adding four rebounds and six assists. Although Johnson is still not fantasy-relevant, he's someone to keep an eye on as he may have earned himself more minutes after today's performance in the final regular season game for Toronto.
Stanley Johnson scored 6 points, (3-4 FG), and 1 steal during his 4 minutes of floor action on Christmas against the Celtics.
Johnson scored 6 fantasy points against the Celtics and is averaging 2 fantasy points on the season considering he has only played in 6 games. He remains a free-agent type player for fantasy owners.
Stanley Johnson remains out of the lineup due to a groin injury on Wednesday against the Clippers.
Johnson can be left on the waiver wire as he's basically out indefinitely due to injury. With Johnson and McCaw both out, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is worth a look in deeper leagues.
