RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Johnson had a turbulent season in his second stint with the Raptors, spending good portions of it in coach Dwane Casey's doghouse but making a solid contribution when injuries forced Casey to give him extensive minutes. The end result was numbers similar to his performance the year before with the Grizzlies, as Johnson averaged 20 minutes, 7.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.0 block, and 0.2 three-pointers in 70 games while shooting 59 percent from the floor and 66 percent from the free-throw line. His length and athleticism allow him to guard multiple positions and make him a useful source of defensive stats when he gets enough court time, but it's clear at this point that Casey simply doesn't trust Johnson or his judgment. The acquisition of DeMarre Carroll, a similar player with a better, more well-rounded skill set, also puts a major road block between Johnson and that court time, and barring a rash of injuries that once again leaves the coach with no other options, or a new head coach replacing Casey, Johnson seems unlikely to get enough minutes to make much of a contribution.

2014-15

After two seasons of sporadic minutes off the bench in Sacramento and Memphis, Johnson returns to a Toronto organization in much better shape than the one he left. He started 65 games for the Raptors in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012, but with Terrence Ross installed as the starting small forward, Johnson will be utilized primarily as a defensive stalwart on the second unit, a job in which he should be able to thrive given his length and athleticism. Last season, the sixth-year forward played in 52 games for the Grizzlies, averaging 7.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.1 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 0.4 three-pointers in 18 minutes per game while shooting 46 percent from the field, 84 percent from the free-throw line, and 25 percent from beyond the arc. Johnson chafed against his limited role in his first tour of duty with Toronto, often trying to do too much on offense, but with more maturity under his belt and a roster around him more likely to get him to the playoffs, Johnson seems better prepared to be a lunch-bucket bench player this time around.

2013-14

After a forgettable season in Sacramento, Johnson signed a non-guaranteed training camp deal with the Hawks. The versatile forward has started 87 games throughout his four-year career but isn't likely to be a major factor in Atlanta if he makes the roster.

2012-13

Johnson had his best full NBA season with the Raptors in 2011-12 but was shipped to Sacramento in a salary dump this offseason. Johnsonís versatility is probably what appealed to the Kings, considering he can play the two, the three, and the four. He probably wonít start, but thereís no reason he canít come close to the 25.2 minutes per game he averaged last season. Johnson averaged 9.1 points on 45 percent shooting to go with 4.7 rebounds in 2011-12, and thereís some room for improvement if Johnson continues to improve on his three-point shot. He raised his three-point percentage to 31.7 percent last season, up from 24 percent the previous season. If he can continue to improve in that category, he could become an even more well-rounded fantasy player. If you owned Johnson last season, you probably scooped him up because he averaged 1.15 steals per game Ė 14th best among forwards. Considering he doesnít have any serious deficiencies in any roto categories, those steals totals can be valuable when they come from a player as cheap as Johnson. He is primarily a deep league play on draft day, but standard league owners should keep an eye on Johnson as a possible early season waiver-wire addition.

2011-12

Heís 6-9, 245 pounds and extremely athletic. Halfway through his sophomore season, he was traded from the Bulls to the Raptors and was inserted straight into the starting lineup at small forward. He played well, putting up averages of 9.2 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 3.0 apg, 1.1 bpg and 1.0 spg in 28 mpg as a Raptor. Johnson can jump, handle the ball, score on his own and play very solid defence. If he can polish his jump shot, he could be a very high-caliber player for years to come and may get plenty of opportunity to produce this season.

2010-11

Johnson, selected 16th by the Bulls last season, fell behind Gibson on the depth chart. With Boozer and Gibson in Chicago, Johnson will see much of his time at small forward, but needs to be in better shape to even earn minutes there.

2009-10

Johnson, selected 16th by the Bulls, averaged 14.8 points on 51.4 percent shooting in two seasons at Wake Forest. Though questions persist about his habit of losing focus, his ability to score with either hand and in a variety of ways impressed Chicago. Johnson also was impressive in summer league play, showing versatility as he has 3-man skills based on the way he can handle the ball and make plays off the dribble, with the size and bulk of a 4. With Thomas and Noah able to play the 4, Deng expected to be 100 percent and the selection of Gibson, Johnson may have to fight for minutes but will play both forward spots. Taj Gibson: Gibson, selected 26th by the Bulls, is an athletic big man who can move well for someone of his size. He is a proficient scorer from both inside and outside, and has a knack for finding a way to make an impact even without the ball. The Bulls were impressed by Gibson's maturity and length during his workout and interview process. He has a 7-4 wingspan, which should prove valuable on defense, allowing Chicago to mix and match up front. His weaknesses are most pronounced in half-court sets, as he needs to get stronger while his jump shot is only effective in a clear rhythm. But with the Bulls hoping to emphasize more open-court offense and upgrade their defense, Gibson is positioned to contribute.
