Johnson was traded to Toronto FC on Friday.

Johnson has been a perennial starter for both the Timbers and Real Salt Lake over the past seven seasons, and that should continue in Toronto. Although, he may take a backseat to Michael Bradley which doesn't project well for production in 2016, but there are certainly many assist opportunities to go around on a team which possesses Sebastian Giovinco.

Johnson (leg) hopes to rejoin training in the near future, but he's currently without a firm timetable for a return to match-play, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson hasn't played since Sept. 20 as he's currently battling a leg injury. He tends to start when healthy, so Jack Jewsbury is a viable candidate for unexpected minutes while Johnson continues to recover.

Johnson is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Sounders due to soreness in his leg, Dan Itel of reports.

Johnson's injury situation and Diego Chara's suspension will open up the door for Jack Jewsbury and George Fochive to likely enter the starting XI. However, Johnson and Chara will be aiming to return Sept. 9 when the Timbers host Sporting Kansas City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson (suspension) is eligible to return Sunday against the Earthquakes.

Johnson received a red card last week which confined him to the sidelines of Saturdayís game against FC Dallas. He made seven starts in Portlandís previous nine MLS games, so Johnson has a good chance of immediately rejoining the starting XI on Sunday.

Johnson and the Timbers won't be appealing the red card he received Saturday against Vancouver, meaning he'll be suspended for this coming Saturday's game against FC Dallas, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.

Johnson's next opportunity to play won't be until Aug. 2 against San Jose. Fellow midfielder Rodney Wallace is the favorite to benefit from added minutes in the meantime.

Johnson was called up to the Canadian national team for two World Cup qualifiers this month, but he will not miss any MLS games, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson recently returned from a broken leg, but he's been able to play nearly full matches, so while he will play twice for Canada (June 11 and June 16), he should have enough time to recover before the Timbers face the Dynamo on June 20.

Johnson grabbed his first of the season as Portland drew 1-1 with Chivas USA on Saturday.

Johnson is one of those guys who means a ton to the team, but it doesn't translate to fantasy value.

Johnson, who captains the Timbers, signed a contract extension Friday, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson had a fine debut season with Portland last year, scoring nine goals and assisting on five others. Before joining the Timbers, he spent five years with Real Salt Lake, although his fantasy success has grown after his move to the Pacific northwest.
