2023 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson increased his role significantly during his sophomore season, averaging 5.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks in 14.9 minutes per game. He was well off the radar in standard leagues, but savvy managers would have noticed the upside. He still needs to work on his offensive game, something that should improve as he gets more reps. On the defensive end of the floor, things are far more promising. With John Collins finally being traded, Johnson should be able to take some more steps forward this season. Both De'Andre Hunter and Saddiq Bey are likely to be ahead of him in the rotation, although Johnson could very well be the first forward off the bench. If he can carve out a 22-minute role, he could flirt with top-140 value in nine-category leagues. If you are happy with your roster heading into the final round of a standard league draft, Johnson is someone to consider, just in case the coaching staff decides to hand him a sizeable role off the bat.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Johnson's collegiate career only lasted 13 games, but it was clear he had NBA-caliber talent despite the small sample size. He opened the season with a 19-point, 19-rebound outing against Coppin State, ultimately starting the first four games before a foot injury forced a brief hiatus. Three games later, Johnson was back in a limited capacity for ACC play. His highlight was a Jan. 19 contest against Pittsburgh in which the 6-9 forward produced 24 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists and four blocks. Johnson ended up logging seven games after that before ultimately electing to opt out the remainder of the pandemic-shortened season to focus on the NBA Draft.

Out at least three weeks
FAtlanta Hawks
Ankle
April 11, 2024
The Hawks announced Thursday that Johnson has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 lateral ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated in approximately three weeks.
ANALYSIS
Johnson exited Tuesday's game against Miami due to his ankle injury, and he's facing a multi-week absence following the results of his MRI. Whether Johnson will be back in action at any point during postseason play likely depends on whether the Hawks advance past the Play-In Tournament. In Johnson's absence, Vit Krejci, De'Andre Hunter (rest) and Wesley Matthews (hamstring) could see increased roles.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Bringing valuable versatility
FAtlanta Hawks
January 16, 2024
Johnson posted 16 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and six steals Monday, making him the first player to hit all those thresholds in a game since Russell Westbrook in 2018.
ANALYSIS
While such a combination may seem like a niche accomplishment, Johnson's statistical versatility at the forward position is noteworthy. Among all forwards with 500-plus minutes played this season, Johnson is one of just four players to average at least a 3.0 percent steal-plus-block rate, knock down at least 38.0 percent of his threes, and post at least 4.0 assists per 100 possessions.
