Analysis: Johnson runs hot-and-cold but could be a sneaky investment for the playoffs. The veteran had 25 points Tuesday at Detroit and has shot 54.1 percent over the last six games.
Mar. 13 9:46 PM PT10:46 PM MT11:46 PM CT12:46 AM ET4:46 GMT12:46 9:46 PM MST11:46 PM EST8:46 UAE05:460:46 ET10:46 PM CT3:46 - Johnson scored a season-high 28 points in Saturday's loss in Toronto.

Analysis: He added five rebounds and four assists while making 10 of 13 shots and 2 of 3 3-pointers.
Feb. 28 3:16 PM PT4:16 PM MT5:16 PM CT6:16 PM ET23:16 GMT7:16 4:16 PM MST6:16 PM EST3:16 UAE (+1)00:1618:16 ET5:16 PM CT22:16 - Johnson is in the starting lineup in his debut for the Miami Heat against the Knicks.
Analysis: Coach Erik Spoelstra says Sunday the Heat brought in Johnson to be a significant piece and then backed up his words by listing the veteran among his starters, a day after Johnson signed with the team. Johnson joined the Heat on Saturday after clearing waivers. He had negotiated a buyout on his contract with the Brooklyn Nets, agreeing to give up $3 million in salary to secure his release and join a contender.
Feb. 26 11:14 AM PT12:14 PM MT1:14 PM CT2:14 PM ET19:14 GMT3:14 12:14 PM MST2:14 PM EST23:14 UAE20:1414:14 ET1:14 PM CT18:14 - Now that Johnson is available, LeBron James isn't keeping it a secret that he'd like the seven-time All-Star to join him in Cleveland.
Analysis: Talking to reporters before the Cavaliers' morning shootaround, the 'King' said, "He knows that we want him, and if he decides to come here, it'd be great." Johnson's contract was bought out by the Nets on Thursday, meaning he can sign with another team and be eligible for the playoffs once he clears waivers.
Feb. 26 12:31 PM PT1:31 PM MT2:31 PM CT3:31 PM ET20:31 GMT4:31 1:31 PM MST3:31 PM EST0:31 UAE (+1)21:3115:31 ET2:31 PM CT19:31 - A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Johnson has agreed to sign with the Miami Heat. The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been signed.
Analysis: Johnson was bought out by the Brooklyn Nets earlier this week and clears waivers on Saturday. He could sign with the Heat any time after that. The Heat are willing to sign Johnson right away if that is his desire and will deal with the luxury-tax ramifications of such a move later, the person said. Johnson was averaging 11.8 points this season with the Nets, but has 85 3-pointers - more than any Heat player.

Analysis: The Nets announced the move Thursday after agreeing to a buyout of the remainder of Johnson's contract - one of the largest in the NBA. Players have to be waived by March 1 in order to sign with another team and be eligible for the playoffs.

Analysis: The 22 points matched a season high in an otherwise disappointing campaign for Johnson, who's averaging a pedestrian 11.4 per game this season. Though he's been better of late, the veteran still isn't a recommended option in daily leagues.
Jan. 5 6:06 PM PT7:06 PM MT8:06 PM CT9:06 PM ET2:06 GMT10:06 7:06 PM MST9:06 PM EST6:06 UAE (+1)03:0621:06 ET8:06 PM CT0:06 - Johnson scored five points in a pathetic effort Wednesday.

Dec. 21 7:39 PM PT8:39 PM MT9:39 PM CT10:39 PM ET3:39 GMT11:39 8:39 PM MST10:39 PM EST7:39 UAE (+1)04:3922:39 ET9:39 PM CT1:39 - Johnson was horrible with 12 points on 5-for-15 shooting Monday.
Analysis: Johnson is 15 for 53 in his last five games. "He's just not finishing some of the shots he normally finishes," coach Lionel Hollins said. "That happens." Fantasy owners know that it always happens with Johnson.
