RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

With Kobe Bryant's return still up in the air, Johnson could see a favorable role when the season begins. Although Johnson did miss three preseason contests due to a strained foot, he has been practicing without difficulty and participated in the Lakers' final exhibition game. Johnson saw a decline in minutes last year compared to his 2011-12 season but still managed two more points per game. While Johnson's value may be higher with Bryant sidelined, his productivity in terms of points and rebounds will surely not be enough to provide fantasy owners with consistent output.

2012-13

Talking about inefficient scorers, Wesley Johnson didn't crack 40% shooting last year and shot just over 30% from three. He's an explosive leaper, but it just doesn't seem like he has the talent to have a featured role in the NBA. Leave him on the waiver wire.

2011-12

Johnson didn't live up to expectations as the fourth overall pick in the 2010 draft as he averaged just 9.0 points per game despite getting 26.2 minutes per game and shot just 39.7 percent from the floor. He'll likely begin the season as the starting shooting guard, but his hold on the job is tenuous. Still, he had games where he showed a spark on offense and his development may have been stunted by playing for the worst team in the league.

2010-11

Johnson was the fourth-overall pick in the 2010 draft after winning Big East Player of the Year honors during his junior year at Syracuse, though it was actually his first season playing with the Orange. Johnson wasn't aggressively recruited coming out of high school, and played his first two college seasons at Iowa State. He transferred to Syracuse after his sophomore year there; sat out a season, per NCAA rules; and then broke out as a junior. At 6-7, 205 (and with a 7-1 wingspan), Johnson is ideally sized for an NBA wing. He also possesses excellent athleticism, as his 1.8 blocks per game last season suggest. As far as NBA comps go, Johnson profiles a little bit like Luol Deng good rebounding and block numbers but with the added advantage of three-point range. The likelihood of him ever being the number one scoring option is low not for a good team, at least. At press time, Johnson is listed second behind Martell Webster at small forward on the Timberwolves' depth chart. Although Webster has his strengths, there's a good chance Johnson becomes the starter at some point if not for opening day. A hamstring injury limited Johnson to only a single Summer League game in Las Vegas, though the injury is not considered serious.
