Suns' Keon Johnson: Headed to Phoenix
Johnson (finger) was traded to the Suns on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal between Phoenix, Portland and Milwaukee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal also sends Damian Lillard to Milwaukee, Jusuf Nurkic to the Suns, and Jrue Holiday and Deandre Ayton to Portland.
Johnson isn't a headliner of this blockbuster deal, but he's another depth option for a top-heavy Suns team. Across 40 appearances for Portland last year, the 6-foot-3 guard averaged 4.7 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 10.4 minutes per game. Johnson is a raw prospect and likely won't carve out a substantial role to start 2023-24.... See More ... See Less

Johnson said his finger bent all the way back and that he knew right away that he was done. It's a shame that Johnson won't be able to show what he can do in Vegas, as he has a lot of work to do if he wants to break into the rotation for the Blazers on Opening Night.... See More ... See Less

Trail Blazers' Keon Johnson: Scores season-high 20 points
Johnson closed with 20 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists and three rebounds in 31 minutes during Monday's 124-90 loss to the Pelicans.
With Damian Lillard (calf) and Anfernee Simons (foot) still out, Johnson was poised for another increased role Monday, but Cam Reddish's (back) departure opened up even more opportunities for the second-year guard, who took advantage by scoring a team- and season-high 20 points while tying his season-best mark with six dimes. As long as the aforementioned trio remains sidelined, Johnson should continue to be on fantasy radars and might even slide into the starting lineup moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Trail Blazers' Keon Johnson: Logs 26 minutes
Johnson amassed 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, six assists and four steals across 26 minutes during Friday's 124-96 loss to the Bulls.
Johnson saw an expanded role in Friday's blowout loss, crossing the 20-minute mark for the first time since Nov. 5 and stuffing the stat sheet. He set season-highs in assists and steals while also scoring 12 points. Considering the Trail Blazers are three and a half games out from the Play-In with eight games left in their season, Johnson and other young players could begin to see more action in the closing weeks of the 2022-23 campaign....

Johnson recorded 16 points (5-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, three assists and two steals in 19 minutes during Thursday's 133-116 loss to the Kings.
Johnson's 16 points marked a new season high and fell just four points shy of his career best (20 points). Johnson did most of his damage in the final minutes of this blowout, and the Blazers were missing several key regulars, so this performance will likely end up being an outlier.... See More ...
