|Atlanta gives James Johnson the boot |

(10/21/13) The Atlanta Hawks waived forward James Johnson Monday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Johnson had been on the roster for his defensive abilities and not his offensive game. He should latch on with another team before long.
|Johnson may not return |

(3/29/13) The Sacramento Bee reported Thursday that Kings forward James Johnson may not return to the team this season, due to personal issues. Even if Johnson returns before the season ends, coach Keith Smart admitted that there may not be enough time for Johnson to get back on the floor, given his lengthy absence; Johnson has now missed nine games. "It could be that way," Smart said. "We want to get him back with our team, but we want him to take care of all his personal side first. I want to make sure he's mentally secure with everything that's happening with him on his personal side before he comes back here and be in two places mentally."
|That James Johnson oozes potential is a an open secret in Fantasy; his per-36-minute numbers throughout his three-year NBA career show a player who can fill up the stat sheet on both sides of the ball. Johnson started to live up to some of that potential last season with Toronto, averaging 10.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 40 starts, with better than a block and a steal in each game. Unfortunately, the Raptors shipped him to Sacramento this offseason, and it is difficult to envision him carving out a role on a team filled with similar players. Johnson is still waiting for his chance to shine, but until that opportunity presents itself, Fantasy owners should leave him for the later rounds on Draft Day as possible reserve option.
