Over the first half of the season, James Johnson spent less than 60 minutes on the court. Nevertheless, the veteran has been restored to Miami's rotation since the turn of the year, and Johnson notably dropped 22-points on 9-of-11 shooting from the field against the Sacramento Kings.

Johnson's resurgence has led to renewed optimism that the Heat would be able to offload the final year of his contract ($15.8 million for the 20-21 season), although Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel is reporting that Johnson is generating little interest on the trade market:

"It's not as if dormant interest can be rekindled, even with James Johnson creating notable moments. To outside teams, James and Dion (Waiters) likely are viewed as little more than contracts with a season and a half remaining."

Over his last 10 appearances, Johnson has averaged 6.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 17.7 minutes per game. The 32-year-old is also shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc.
