  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Shines for second straight game

    Johnson logged 22 points (8-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one block across 33 minutes during Thursday's 99-95 loss to the Mavericks.

    Johnson has scored at least 20 points while shining from beyond the arc for the second game in a row, keeping the momentum going after putting up 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-7 3Pt) in Tuesday's win over the Hornets. Johnson has made just four appearances since missing more than two months due to a nagging knee injury, but he has scored at least 19 points in three of those contests. While he's bound to regress at some point, given the efficiency he's required to maintain that level over the last two games, he's certainly making his presence felt on the offensive end of the court at the moment.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Catches fire from three

    Johnson had 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-7 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes during Tuesday's 128-97 victory over the Hornets.

    Despite playing less than half of the game, Johnson finished as the Suns' scoring leader for the night thanks to some stellar marksmanship. He's now scored 19 or more points in two of his three contests since returning from meniscus surgery and is shooting 53.3 percent from the field over that stretch.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Slows in loss Sunday

    Johnson had eight points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Sunday's 112-110 win over the Grizzlies.

    Johnson came back to earth in the loss, turning in a must more subdued performance when compared to his return game. Poor production aside, the fact he played 29 minutes has to be seen as a positive. The Suns really need his scoring punch, so while there could be a few ups and downs, Johnson is clearly a must-roster player across all formats.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Returning to starting lineup

    Johnson will start Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Johnson missed a stretch of 37 games from Nov. 5 through mid-January while battling a torn meniscus, but he made his long-awaited return Thursday against the Nets. While Johnson was held out of Saturday night's win over the Pacers, he'll be back in the starting lineup Sunday for the first time since Nov. 4. Johnson will likely require a few more games to work back up to speed, but he should eventually return to being a strong source of made three-pointers.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Not listed on injury report

    Johnson (knee) isn't listed on the Suns' injury report for Sunday's game against Memphis, Gerald Bourguet of reports.

    Johnson sat out the first half of the Suns' back-to-back set Saturday due to right knee injury maintenance, but as expected, he'll return to action Sunday. The sharpshooter made his first appearance Thursday since Nov. 4 and scored 19 points across 22 minutes. He figures to garner a similar role against the Grizzlies.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Won't play Saturday

    Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Johnson will get the first night of the Suns' back-to-back set off as he continues to work his way back to full strength from a meniscus injury. He posted 19 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes during his return to action Thursday and, barring a setback, should garner a similar role against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Shines bright in return

    Johnson (knee) finished with 19 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal over 22 minutes during Thursday's 117-112 victory over Brooklyn.

    Making his first appearance since Nov. 4 after a prolonged recovery from meniscus surgery on his right knee, Johnson was limited to a bench role in his return yet still made a major impact. He'll likely remain on a minutes restriction for at least a few more games and may not immediately regain the starting role he held prior to suffering the injury, but based on Thursday's performance, fantasy managers can probably feel comfortable activating him again or scooping him up off the waiver wire if he's still a free agent.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Will face minutes restriction

    Johnson (knee) will face a minutes restriction Thursday against the Nets, Gerald Bourguet of reports.

    Coach Monty Williams shared that Johnson's minutes would be capped Thursday and likely for the next couple of games. The Suns' coach also shared that Johnson should see his minutes increase moving forward. In the meantime, Torrey Craig will likely continue to pick up extra minutes while Johnson works his way back to his typical workload.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Will return Thursday

    Suns head coach Monty Williams said Wednesday that Johnson (knee) will return to action Thursday against the Nets, Kellan Olson of reports.

    Johnson, who's officially listed as probable, hasn't appeared in a contest since Nov. 4 due to a meniscus tear in his right knee that required surgery. While the 26-year-old previously started all of his eight appearances, Johnson could come off the bench Thursday and will presumably face a minutes restriction following the long layoff. Once he has fully reintegrated with the team, Johnson should reclaim a starting spot along with a near-30-minute role for Phoenix. In the seven games prior to his early departure in the Nov. 4 matchups, Johnson averaged 14.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals over 28.1 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Expected to play Thursday

    Johnson (knee) plans to make his return in Thursday's game versus the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson hasn't played since Nov. 4 after undergoing right knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The 26-year-old forward had started in all eight of his appearances this season, so he will likely replace Torrey Craig in the starting five at some point. However, Johnson appears set to face a minutes restriction in his first couple of games back and may first appear off the bench as a result.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Out Monday, close to return

    Johnson (knee) took part in Sunday's practice and will remain out Monday against the Grizzlies, but appears to be close to a return, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Chris Haynes of reported Friday that Johnson expects to return to action shortly after the Suns conclude their road trip with Monday's game in Memphis. The 26-year-old has been sidelined since Nov. 4 after recovering surgery to address a torn meniscus in his right knee, but he recently resumed participating in full practices and may need to turn in only a few more workouts before the Suns feel comfortable with him from a conditioning standpoint. He could be a candidate to return to the lineup for the start of the Suns' homestand Thursday against the Nets, though he may be under a minutes limit if he gets cleared for that game.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Not yet taking full contact

    Suns head coach Monty Williams said Saturday that Johnson (knee) is getting closer in terms of checking off boxes in his recovery from his Nov. 4 meniscus surgery, but he hasn't been cleared to participate in full-contact drills, Gerald Bourguet of reports.

    Johnson will remain sidelined for a 33rd consecutive game Sunday against the Cavaliers, and given Williams' comments, the 26-year-old can mostly likely be ruled out for both ends of the Suns' Tuesday/Wednesday back-to-back set at Golden State and Denver, respectively, to open up the team's three-game week. Though Johnson's extended absence has made it tough on fantasy managers who have rostered him throughout the two-month hiatus from game action, he appears close to playing again and is likely worth holding in the majority of leagues. Johnson was averaging 13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 three-pointers, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.3 minutes per game in eight outings prior to suffering the right knee injury and should be looking at a sizable role whenever he's cleared to play again.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Still out Friday

    Johnson (knee) will miss Friday's game versus the Heat, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    While Johnson has made some progress in his recovery, it doesn't sound like he's quite ready to retake the floor yet. Still, the team is taking it game-by-game with his status, so his next opportunity to suit up surfaces Sunday against the Cavaliers.

  • Suns' Cameron Johnson: Out again Wednesday

    Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Johnson hasn't played since Nov. 4 due to right knee surgery. He's reportedly participating in drills but has yet to advance to non-contact work, which suggests he'll remain sidelined for at least a few more games. However, the Suns are content handling his status game-by-game, so Johnson's next chance to suit up will come Friday against Miami.
