I'll tell you what, that Amir Johnson might be a player.

For all the talk of his supposed off year, Amir Johnson still has the best net rating of four non-DeRozan starters. JV easily lowest.

Ryan Wolstat

A rare game where Raptors don’t need Amir Johnson down the stretch. Will get 19th win of season with best defender resting.

Ryan Wolstat

Kyle Lowry Amir Johnson and Landry Fields have revived the Raptors, who go to the fourth up by sixth Raptors 16-1 this season leading thru 3

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson is back in form and Landry Fields is taking/hitting layups which is out of his norm #rhymin

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors defence without Amir Johnson is sub-optimal. Magic nearly up to 60% from floor.

Josh Robbins

Raptors starters: Kyle Lowry, Landry Fields, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas.

Ryan Wolstat

Great pass from Kyle Lowry and Amir Johnson, who has some spring tonight, throws down a dunk.

Candace Buckner

#Raptors starters: Kyle Lowry, Landry Fields, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson, Jonas Valanciunas

Raptors’ Amir Johnson receives warning for flopping against Nuggets dlvr.it/7nxJ4v

Ryan Wolstat

The guy the Raptors could really use at PF is uber-athletic, injury-free Amir Johnson of 2+ years ago. Would be perfect.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson’s rebounding numbers are frighteningly poor. Rebound rate is close to half what it was at his best.

Ryan Wolstat

As frustrated as I’ve ever seen Amir Johnson after a game (before he faced the media like a pro). He needs to heal up.

Ryan Wolstat

Good call on Amir Johnson at the other end I suppose, but it was close.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson has no lift … but, got hit on the head on layup attempt. Refs said because he didn’t jump, no foul, apparently.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson wincing in pain after getting his shot swatted into next week. Playing through some ailments.

Ryan Wolstat

Kevin Love blows a bunny inside. Has a history of struggling to score over Amir Johnson inside. Amir’s length bothers him.

Mike Ganter

Amir Johnson, who would normally start the second half is in now. He was getting re-taped so Casey went with Patterson.

Eric Smith

Amir Johnson checking into the game with 5:52 to go in Q3. Told ya he'd be back.

Eric Smith

Amir Johnson did not start the 2nd half. apparently getting his ankle re-taped. he should be back at some point here in the 3rd.

Josh Lewenberg

No Amir Johnson to start the second half. Patrick Patterson replaces him with first unit. No word on Amir yet.

Eric Smith

Patrick Patterson starts the 2nd half in place of Amir Johnson. #Raptors #RTZ

Raptors will start: Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson, Jonas Valanciunas, Greivis Vasquez & the East Player of the Week, Kyle Lowry

Ryan Wolstat

That 27 point effort Friday was Amir Johnson’s second-highest scoring game as a Raptor.

Ryan Wolstat

“I don’t want to make any excuses, but I feel like we were just a little flat today.” Amir Johnson, who ironically was not flat.

Ryan Wolstat

Random note: Amir Johnson says his mom and Magic Johnson are good friends and take Tae Bo classes together.

Dave McMenamin

Video review. Casspi caught Amir Johnson with an elbow. Shouldn’t be an intentional foul since Casspi was going in for a lay up.

Earl K. Sneed
