Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson played very well in the loss against the Cavaliers on Friday.
Insight: Johnson scored a season-high 27 points, shooting 11-of-15 from the field. He also had seven rebounds and four assists. Johnson seems to be the second-option for the Raptors offense that will be playing without DeMar DeRozan until likely sometime in January.
 
11/4/2014 11:53:00 AM

Insight: We expect him to average 10.2 PPG, 6.9 RPG and 1.2 BPG. He played the end of last season with an ankle injury, but he is healthy to start this season.

Description: Toronto forward Amir Johnson missed Friday's game against Indiana and is questionable for Saturday's game against Milwaukee due to a sprained ankle.
Insight: Patrick Patterson will replace him in the starting lineup. For some reason, Patterson has actually played better off the bench this season (8.2 ppg as a starter, 8.8 as a reserve).

Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson's nagging right ankle acted up again during Wednesday's game and he's done for the night, according to Josh Lewenberg of tsn.ca.
Insight: Johnson has been bothered by the injury since February. He usually plays through injuries but the Raptors already clinched a playoff spot and can afford to rest him. Patrick Patterson is next in line for minutes.
 
3/25/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson is probable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland despite suffering from a hyperextended left knee in Sunday's game, according to Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun.
Insight: Johnson has a reputation for toughness and apparently can play through this injury. He had scored double-digits in eight straight games until Sunday and is averaging 11.1 ppg and 6.8 rpg.
 
3/23/2014 3:57:00 PM
Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson played through a knee injury Sunday in a win against Atlanta.
Insight: It wasn't one of Johnson's better outings, at least offensively (six points on 3-for-7 shooting), but you have to admire his toughness. Unless we hear otherwise, we'd expect Johnson to play Tuesday versus Cleveland.
