News: Portland guard Armon Johnson end the regular season on a high note on Wednesday as he scored a career-high 12 points. The Trail Blazers rested some of the starters for the playoffs, which opened the door for Johnson and some other rookies. Johnson played in just 38 games during his rookie campaign, but managed just seven minutes of court time. He averaged 2.9 points and 1.2 assists over his games, while shooting 41.7 percent from downtown.
Analysis: Johnson spent most of his time in the NBA Development League or injured. A knee injury kept him out of action for a while, but he rode the bench the majority of his time with the Trail Blazers. While he wasn't a factor in his first year in the league, Johnson may get a chance to carve out some minutes next season. As of now he's not worth taking on Draft Day this fall.

He's averaging 2.8 points and shooting 57.9 percent from the foul line. For now, owners in all formats should go on ignoring the rookie as he holds no Fantasy appeal.
News: Portland rookie guard Armon Johnson was sent to the NBA Development League back on Jan. 28. He's seen action in 28 games for the Trail Blazers this season.

"I'm just trying to embrace it," Johnson, the 34th pick in the 2010 NBA draft, said after Saturday's shootaround. "I'm doing my best to embrace it and just be positive about it." Johnson lost the backup point guard spot to Patrick Mills in December and was used sparingly since then. Johnson is averaging 14 points, 2.3 assists and 26 minutes in four games with the Idaho Stampede. "He's doing quite well," Idaho coach Randy Livingston said. "He's still a young player. He's still growing."
Analysis: Johnson was averaging 3.1 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per outing while in the NBA. Until he makes it back to the big stage the rookie isn't worth owning in any Fantasy format. Continue to ignore him in all leagues.
