News: Johnson is poised to start at small forward in the 2014-15 campaign, Lakers' official site reports.
Impact: Coach Byron Scott is considering a starting lineup of Jeremy Lin, Kobe Bryant, Johnson, Carlos Boozer, and Jordan Hill. Johnson may be the toughest call due to the presence of Nick Young and Xavier Henry on the wing. However, Johnson started 62 of his 79 games last season, averaging a modest 9.3 points (on 44.2 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.3 threes, 1.1 steals, and 1.0 blocks in 29.5 minutes. A slight decrease in playing time could occur with Kobe Bryant (knee) back to full strength, but varied lines should again populate his game log.
