2019 Fantasy Outlook
A freshman out of Kentucky, Johnson was selected by the Spurs with the 29th overall pick in the 2019 Draft. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward started 36 of 37 appearances, averaging 13.5 points (46.1 FG%, 38.1 3P%, 70.3 FT%), 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 30.7 minutes. Those numbers helped him secure both the SEC Freshman of the Year award, as well as making the Second Team All-SEC (Coaches). During summer league, Johnson played in five games, averaging 12.2 points on 9.2 shots, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 22.2 minutes. It seems unlikely he'll garner many minutes in the NBA as a rookie, as the Spurs have no shortage of wing players. Chances are, Johnson will head down to the G League for a significant portion of the season to get some on-court experience. Read Past Outlooks

Drops game-high 24 in start
FSan Antonio Spurs
August 14, 2020
Johnson scored a game-high 24 points (8-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding two rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 118-112 loss to the Jazz.
ANALYSIS
The rookie had trouble even getting on the court consistently before the season was suspended in March, but Johnson's game took a huge step forward in the Orlando bubble. He played at least 22 minutes in all eight games after the restart, averaging 14.1 points, 5.0 boards, 1.4 threes, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals, and the 2019 first-round pick seems to have solidified himself as a key part of the Spurs' future.
