Out Sprained left ankle Open link
Johnson has been ruled out for a second straight game on Wednesday vs. the Kings due to a moderate sprain of his left ankle. He didn't return to the second half of Sunday's loss after suffering the injury when he came down on Tyson Chandler's foot following a three-point attempt. X-rays were negative. The Lakers will have only Jabari Brown (PG), Vander Blue (SG), and Ryan Kelly (SF) available for three positions on Wednesday, with Johnson unavailable and Jordan Clarkson (ankle), Jeremy Lin (knee), Nick Young (knee), and Dwight Buycks (hand) having all been declared out.

Out Sprained left ankle Open link
Johnson won't return to Sunday's game after leaving towards the end of the second quarter with a moderate sprain of his left ankle. He suffered the injury after he came down on Tyson Chandler's foot following a three-point attempt, although he remained in the game for a few plays before departing for the locker room with a noticeable limp. X-rays were negative. Jabari Brown and Ryan Kelly will see the run at small forward for the desperately thin Lakers the rest of the way in Johnson's absence.
3/19/2015 9:37 PM
Active Sprained right elbow Open link
Johnson is active and in the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. the Jazz, as expected. He was bothered by some soreness in his right elbow for a few days earlier in the week and was diagnosed with a slight sprain on Tuesday, but it was considered a minor issue that was not expected to cost him any time.
3/17/2015 2:48 PM
Probable Sprained right elbow Open link
Johnson has been diagnosed with a slight sprain in his right elbow, but has still been cleared to play. We're considering him probable for now in advance of Thursday's game vs. the Jazz as the injury appears to be minor and is unlikely to cost him any time.
3/12/2015 1:07 PM
Active Calf Open link
Johnson went through morning shootaround and will play on Thursday vs. the Knicks after sitting out of practice on Wednesday due to a calf injury. Coach Byron Scott didn't seem too concerned about the injury and expected him to be fine, which appears to be the case.
3/11/2015 2:00 PM
Probable Calf Open link
Johnson sat out of practice on Wednesday due to a calf injury, but coach Byron Scott didn't seem too concerned about it and expects him to play on Thursday vs. the Knicks. We'll continue to update his status as needed, but this appears to be a minor issue that likely won't cause him to miss any time.
2/4/2015 8:24 PM
Active Mild right ankle sprain Open link
Johnson returned for the second half of Wednesday's game after leaving during the first quarter with a right ankle sprain. He suffered the injury when he landed on Giannis Antetokounmpo's foot after attempting a three-point shot. Johnson iced the ankle and had it re-taped, and gave it a go after testing it out at halftime.
1/11/2015 1:24 PM
Active Strained right hip flexor Open link
Johnson will play and be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest vs. the Trail Blazers. He missed the past three games due to a strained right hip flexor, but looked pretty good when he returned to practice on Saturday, according to coach Byron Scott. Johnson's return will push Ryan Kelly back to a reserve role, although there may still be additional minutes available on the wing with Kobe Bryant's status yet to be determined.
1/10/2015 2:18 PM
Questionable Strained right hip flexor Open link
Coach Byron Scott said Johnson is "probably 50/50" for Sunday's contest vs. the Magic, and added that he looked pretty good during practice on Saturday. Johnson has missed the past three games as he continues to deal with a strained right hip flexor. Kobe Bryant (rest, questionable), Wayne Ellington, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly, and Jordan Clarkson would continue to see the majority of the minutes on the wing if he has to miss additional time.
1/9/2015 1:25 PM
Out Strained right hip flexor Open link
Johnson has been ruled out for a third straight game on Friday vs. the Magic as he continues to deal with a strained right hip flexor. He will be re-evaluated later on Friday, but his hip has improved significantly and the plan is for him to practice Saturday and hopefully play on Sunday. Kobe Bryant, Wayne Ellington, Nick Young, and Ryan Kelly will continue to see the majority of the minutes on the wing in his absence.
1/8/2015 2:58 PM
Questionable Strained right hip flexor Open link
Johnson is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Magic, which is a bit of a surprise as he was expected to be out the rest of the week due to his strained right hip flexor. He suffered the injury near the end of the first half of Sunday's win, and there were some initial fears that he would need to miss multiple weeks with an injury that "didn't look good," according to Scott. Johnson will return to a wing rotation that includes Kobe Bryant, Wayne Ellington, Nick Young (knee, questionable), and Ryan Kelly.
1/5/2015 8:23 PM
Injured Strained right hip flexor Open link
Updating a previous report, coach Byron Scott said Monday that Johnson could return from his strained right hip flexor by the end of the current week. He suffered the injury near the end of the first half of Sunday's win, and there were some initial fears that he would need to miss multiple weeks with an injury that "didn't look good," according to Scott. For now, we're expecting him to miss the next four games, including Monday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, and will look for further updates on his status. The Lakers will be extremely shorthanded on the wing Monday with Kobe Bryant (rest) also out, so it'll be Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Nick Young, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin all seeing heavy run in their place.
1/5/2015 11:50 AM
Injured Strained right hip flexor Open link
Johnson could be out several weeks due to a strained right hip flexor he suffered near the end of the first half of Sunday's win. He has already been ruled out for Monday's game, and will undergo an MRI to determine the extend of the injury. "I'm not going to speculate on how many games or how much time he’ll be out right now," coach Byron Scott said of Johnson's injury. "But talking to our trainer (Gary Vitti), it didn’t look good. We just have to wait and see and hope for the best.” The Lakers will be extremely shorthanded on the wing Monday with Kobe Bryant (rest) already ruled out, so it'll be Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Nick Young, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin all seeing heavy run in their place.
1/4/2015 10:02 PM
Out Strained right hip flexor Open link
Johnson has been ruled out in advance of Monday's game vs. the Blazers due to a strained right hip flexor he suffered near the end of the first half of Sunday's win. He will not travel with the team to Portland, instead staying back in Los Angeles to get an MRI on Monday. "I'm not going to speculate on how many games or how much time he’ll be out right now," coach Byron Scott said of Johnson's injury. "But talking to our trainer (Gary Vitti), it didn’t look good. We just have to wait and see and hope for the best.” The Lakers will be extremely shorthanded on the wing Monday with Kobe Bryant (rest) already ruled out, so it'll be Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Nick Young, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin all seeing heavy run in their place.
12/21/2014 5:11 PM
Active Sore right ankle Open link
Johnson is active and in the Lakers' starting five on Sunday, as expected. He was held out of the Lakers' Saturday practice due to soreness in his right ankle, but all indications were that it was precautionary and he was not expected to miss any time going forward. Johnson tweaked his ankle while attempting to make a defensive play in transition during Friday's loss to the Thunder, but was able to remain in the game and played a total of 28 minutes. Teammate Nick Young avoided receiving a suspension for his Flagrant 2 foul of Steven Adams during Friday's game and will be active in a reserve role.
12/20/2014 2:29 PM
Probable Sore right ankle Open link
Johnson was held out of the Lakers' Saturday practice due to soreness in his right ankle, but is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Kings. Johnson tweaked his ankle while attempting to make a defensive play in transition during Friday's loss to the Thunder, but was able to remain in the game and played a total of 28 minutes. It looks like his being held out of the practice session was precautionary, but it would be Nick Young and Wayne Ellington who see additional run on the wing if Johnson's status happens to be downgraded before Sunday.
12/12/2014 11:37 AM
Active Illness Open link
Johnson will be active and in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Spurs after missing Wednesday's practice while dealing with a case of gastroenteritis (stomach flu). Johnson has lost a few of his minutes on the wing of late to Nick Young and Wayne Ellington, with coach Byron Scott looking for any combination of players to spark the floundering Lakers.
12/11/2014 1:57 PM
Questionable Illness Open link
Johnson is considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs due to gastroenteritis. He sat out of Wednesday's practice with the illness, and we'll continue to update his status as needed. Nick Young and Wayne Ellington would see extended run on the wing for the Lakers should Johnson have to miss any time.
12/10/2014 2:09 PM
Questionable Illness Open link
Johnson did not practice on Wednesday due to gastroenteritis. We'll continue to update his status as needed, but are considering him questionable for now ahead of Friday's game vs. the Spurs. Nick Young and Wayne Ellington would see extended run on the wing for the Lakers should Johnson have to miss any time with the illness.
10/7/2014 3:39 PM
Probable Patellar tendon strain Open link
Tuesday's update from the Lakers is that Johnson's knee is "better" and they don't expect his patella strain to be an issue moving forward. Johnson said he was fine after Monday's game and, although the team didn't provide much in the way of specifics, this appears to back that up. The Lakers had a light practice on Tuesday, with just film and walk-throughs, so we'll have to wait and see how active Johnson actually is during the next full-contact session.
10/6/2014 11:15 PM
Injured Patellar tendon strain Open link
Johnson suffered a patellar tendon strain in his left knee during Monday's preseason game and did not return. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday. Johnson said after the game that he's completely fine and that he could've finished the game if need be, so it looks like he won't miss much time (if at all). Coach Byron Scott also seemed confident Johnson's knee injury was minor and termed it tendinitis. The Lakers are already painfully thin on the wing, with Nick Young out eight weeks after undergoing surgery earlier in the day and Xavier Henry's status for the season opener in question due to ongoing knee and back issues. They certainly can't afford to lose Johnson too. In the case that Johnson's knee strain is worse than he's letting on, Kobe Bryant would likely slide over to small forward with some combination of Henry, Jeremy Lin, Jordan Clarkson, and Wayne Ellington filling in at the off-guard.
