Johnson is averaging 11.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.5 three-pointers per game on 40.6% shooting from the field and 37.1% from downtown. Johnson is also shooting a career-high 85.2% from the free-throw line.

Although he holds the nickname iso-Joe, Johnson would bring yet another veteran presence who has had a relatively healthy career and can contribute on the offensive end of whatever team he chooses. According to NBA.com/stats, Johnson shoots 38.5% on catch-and-shoot two-point field goals as well as 44% on catch-and-shoot three-point field goals.

In order to be eligible to play in the postseason, Johnson must be waived/bought out by March 1.
