RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

The addition of Valanciunas could hit Johnson the hardest of any returning Raptor. With Jonas V at center Bargnani will shift to the four, leaving Johnson battling with Ed Davis for minutes behind them. Johnson is an inconsistent but high-energy player who lives at the rim, fights for rebounds, and gets exposed if he's relied on too heavily. Unless he or Davis get dealt expect Johnson's minutes and production to plunge.

2011-12

With Chris Bosh trolling the paint in Miami, Johnson was given the opportunity to take over as the Raptorsí primary power forward during the 2010-11 season. He had an up-and-down season, but his solid stretches were good enough to warrant fantasy consideration going forward. Before suffering through an ankle injury down the stretch, Johnson put together a 27-game run in January and February that saw him average 12.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks. He also displayed continued excellence in his field-goal percentage (56.8) while improving from the charity stripe (78.8). Unfortunately Johnsonís ankle injury, which eventually led to offseason surgery, led to an opportunity for his main competition for minutes, Ed Davis, to get more playing time down the stretch. The Raptors will have a delicate situation with these two, as the team has already handed Johnson a sizable long-term contract, but Davis was the teamís 2010 first-round pick. In all likelihood, Johnson will eventually take a backseat to Davis, but the 24-year-old still has some upside if heís able to prove his ankle injury is a thing of the past and nab a significant role.

2010-11

Johnson will be the Raptors' primary power forward, but he may start most games on the bench. The extent of Johnsonís value in fantasy will hinge on the teamís decision to use him as a starter or off the bench. In five games as a starter last season, Johnson averaged 17.8 points, six rebounds and 1.0 block in 33 minutes per game.

2009-10

Johnson's value took a big hit when he was dealt to the Raptors, as he went from the Bucks' starting power forward to fighting with Reggie Evans for minutes off the bench. Johnson is perceived to have more upside than Evans, but unless Chris Bosh gets hurt he won't see enough court time to show it.

2008-09

After two cups of coffee with the Pistons in his first two years in the league, Johnson finally got a chance to show what he could do with extended playing time last season, and he did not disappoint. He'll never be a scorer, but he already appears to be an elite shot blocker and a decent rebounder. He'll likely be a regular part of the rotation this season.

2007-08

Despite having only 163 NBA minutes under his belt, Johnson, 20, attracted some attention on the free agent market before re-signing with Detroit. He spent most of last season dominating the NBDL before he had a cup of coffee with the Pistons in April. In the last four games of the regular-season, he had 43 points, 32 rebounds, and a whopping 11 blocks. He may need a strong preseason to break into the rotation, but his days in the NBDL may finally be over.

2006-07

Johnson still has a long way to go before he's a viable option on the Detroit roster, but he's had some exciting moments during his brief time in the NBA. He'll sit at the end of the Pistons bench and probably play only in blowouts.
