|(2/21/15) Raptors forward James Johnson scored a season-high 27 points on 10 of 16 shooting from the field in Toronto's 98-76 loss to the Rockets Saturday.
Johnson did everything for the Raptors in the loss, grabbing five rebounds, blocking four shots and adding four steals to his totals. It was the third time in his last five games Johnson was able to reach double figures in scoring.
Forward James Johnson working his way back into Raptors' rotation
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/9/15) Raptors forward James Johnson was starting for Toronto for a little while earlier in the season when DeMar DeRozan was out with a groin injury. After DeRozan returned, Johnson's minutes went down.
But now, the sixth-year pro is back on the rise with the Raptors and he credits it to his workout regiment.
"Stick to my routine," Johnson said to TSN.ca. "If I'm not getting the 20-plus minutes, I'm going to stay doing my extra shooting, extra lifting."
Johnson scored 20 points and grabbed four rebounds in Toronto's win over the Spurs Sunday.
"You never know how many minutes you're gonna get, when's your next opportunity to play, so you just have to stay ready. Give a lot of credit to [assistant coach] Jama [Mahlalela], always coming up there, sacrificing some dinner times with me, coming up there at nighttime. It's working out."
Coach Dwane Casey said after the game he started Johnson for the first time in a while for defensive purposes.
"To match up with Kawhi Leonard, give us a physical presence with him. I was worried about his minutes but he was okay, his hammy was okay," Casey said. "We were watching him but he came through with flying colors."

James Johnson leads Raptors comeback over Clippers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) James Johnson hit all seven of his shots and scored 16 points off the bench to lead the Raptors to an epic comeback over the Clippers, 123-107, Friday in Toronto.
The Raptors trailed by 20, late in the first quarter. Johnson entered the game in the second and scored 12 of his points before the half as the Raptors cut the lead to two points by the break.
Johnson and the Raptors stayed hot in the second half, taking the lead and pulling away. The Raptors led by as much as 24 in the fourth quarter.
Johnson added five rebounds, three assists and two steals in his first game back after missing four straight with a sore hamstring.
The Raptors host the Spurs in their next game, Sunday.
|If he could ever get 25 minutes per night on a consistent basis, James Johnson could be a Fantasy monster. He averaged 7.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.8 combined blocks and steals per game last season, and he did it in just 19.6 minutes per game. However, his offensive limitations make him best suited for a reserve role, which is likely the one he will fill for the Raptors yet again this season. He has value in category-based leagues, but probably shouldn't be targeted before the later rounds on Draft Day.
