News: Johnson (ankle) returned from a three-game absence Friday in Toronto but didn't score (0-1 FG) in 17 minutes. However, he did have three rebounds, two assists, and a block. Impact: Johnson had a quiet game in his return to the starting lineup. His minutes should ramp up in the last week of the season, though, as the Raptors prepare for the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) will play Friday against the Knicks, TSN 1050 reports. Impact: While Johnson will return from his three-game absence, it's possible the Raptors could bring him off the bench. Check back before game-time for an update, but it's certainly possible Patrick Patterson could remain in the starting lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) appears like he will return to the court Friday based off a tweet that read, "Now back to business," which he sent out and the Raptors' Official Site retweeted. Impact: Johnson has sat out for the Raptors' past three games with his ankle injury. This of course is not an official announcement that he'll return, but it seems likely considering that there have been reports saying that he's close to a comeback. His official status will likely be updated before the game.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) is nearing a return to the court, the Toronto Sun reports. Coach Dwane Casey relayed, "He's pretty close. He's still not 100 percent. But he's pretty close. If he had to go tonight, he probably could go. We're trying to make sure...he's ready for the next couple of weeks." Impact: The Raptors clearly intend to have Johnson as healthy as possible for the playoffs, but his return could take place Friday versus the Knicks. If he makes a return, his play could include a bit of rust, though his presence would be a welcome sight for a suddenly porous defense. Another DNP, though, would result in Patrick Patterson logging 30-to-35 minutes at the four.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) will miss Wednesday's game against the 76ers, the team's official site reports. Impact: There was hope that Johnson could play on Wednesday with reduced minutes, but he will be out. This will be Johnson's third straight absence with the injury.

Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) will likely play reduced minutes Wednesday against the 76ers. He is still officially listed as questionable, TSN reports. Impact: Johnson averages 29.3 minutes per game this season, so reduced minutes should put him on the floor for 15-20 minutes Wednesday. Expect Patrick Patterson to see the bulk of the minutes at power forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) participated in practice Tuesday and will likely be a game time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the 76ers, TSN reports.

News: Johnson didn't play Saturday. Impact: Johnson left Wednesday night's game against Houston after only three minutes with an ankle injury. The starting forward, who has suffered several ankle injuries in the past, also missed Friday night's game against Indiana. (STATS, 5:48pm)
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) will not play Friday versus Indiana, the Toronto Star reports.

Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Friday, the Raptors' website reports. Impact: Johnson's a hard guy to keep on the bench and might talk his way into the lineup, but even if he plays we wouldn't expect him to see his normal workload. Consider him a very risky play for Friday night.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Johnson left Wednesday's game with an ankle injury and will not return. Impact: Johnson played just three minutes before exiting, during which he recorded a pair of rebounds. An official diagnosis has not been provided, but the fact that a return has been ruled out so early in the game is not the most positive of signs. Look for Patrick Patterson to absorb the brunt of Johnson's minutes.(RotoWire, )
