Description: Brooklyn G/F Joe Johnson will be active for Tuesday night's game against the Knicks. SOURCE: Stefan Bondy, New York Daily News
Insight: There had been a rumor the Nets were thinking of resting their starters to try and get the No. 6 seed and a more favorable matchup with Toronto in the first round, though apparently that wasn't the case. A shooting guard for most of his career, Johnson has played primarily as a small forward this season. He leads the team in scoring at 15.8 ppg.
 
Hot4/9/2014 9:57:00 PM

Description: Nets guard Joe Johnson missed shootaround with an illness but he's going to play through it Friday against Boston. SOURCE: Tim Bontemps, New York Post
Insight: Johnson has shot an efficient 15-for-24 (62.5 percent) from the floor over his last two contests. That includes an 8-of-11 (72.7 percent) clip from long range. Make sure he's in your starting lineup.
 
3/7/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Brooklyn shooting guard Joe Johnson is questionable for Friday's game against Boston due to illness.
Insight: Johnson missed the morning shootaround, but will be a game-time decision, according to Tim Bontempts of the New York Post. JJ is averaging 15.0 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 2.7 apg this season, but has averaged 20.0 ppg over his last two starts. Marcus Thornton would get the start if Johnson can't go.

Description: Brooklyn shooting guard Joe Johnson is ready to play Thursday against the Spurs. He sat out Monday because of right knee tendinitis. SOURCE: Mike Mazzeo, ESPN New York
Insight: Andrei Kirilenko (calf) and Andray Blatche (hip) will also be active for tonight's game. Johnson (15.6 ppg) has been held under 20 points each of his last six contests.
 
2/5/2014 12:51:00 PM
Description: Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson (knee soreness) returned to practice Wednesday after missing Monday's game, according to Andy Vasquez of the Bergen Record.
Insight: Johnson is averaging 15.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.8 apg, his lowest totals in 10 years, but still made the All-Star team this season. If he returns Thursday he'll bump Alan Anderson back to the bench and may take some minutes from Shaun Livingston, though Livingston was having success even with Johnson in the lineup.
 
2/3/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson is not expected to play against Philadelphia on Monday night due to right knee tendinitis, according to Andy Vasquez of The Record.
Insight: Johnson is averaging 15.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.8 apg, his lowest totals in 10 years. Shaun Livingston has scored 40 points over the past two games and with Johnson sidelined could be in for another big night.
 
Hot1/20/2014 7:09:00 PM

1/16/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson had 29 points on 11-of-15 shooting (6-8 3PT) Thursday against the Hawks in London.
Insight: Johnson has scored at least 23 points in four of the past five games and averaged 24.4 ppg in that span. He should continue to be the Nets leading scorer until Deron Williams (ankles) finally rejoins them.
 
1/11/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson's three-game hot streak came to an end Saturday against the Raptors.
Insight: After scoring nine points or less in five straight games from Dec. 27 to Jan. 4, Johnson averaged 27.3 ppg in his last three games. However, he had just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting Saturday and the Nets lost to snap a five-game winning streak.

Hot12/16/2013 10:23:00 PM
Description: Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson torched the Sixers for 37 points on Monday night.

Hot11/28/2013 6:20:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn guard Joe Johnson has averaged 21.4 points on 47.4 percent shooting and 3.8 threes per game over his last five games.

11/24/2013 7:09:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn guard Joe Johnson got hot from three-point range and finished with 34 points Sunday in a loss to Detroit.
Insight: It's the first time this season Johnson (8-for-10 on three-pointers) has scored over 20 points. The Nets dropped to 3-10 with the loss. That gives Brooklyn the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference (Milwaukee is 2-10).
 
11/16/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Joe Johnson propelled the Nets to victory Friday with a game-winning layup as time expired in overtime.
Insight: Johnson's bucket with 29 seconds left in the fourth quarter was what sent the game into overtime in the first place. Statistically, it was a pretty pedestrian night for Johnson (13 points on just 6-of-19 shooting) but his late-game heroics prove that he can still be a force in both real life and fantasy.
