Ivan Johnson, possibly the most terrifying man in the NBA, started for Al Horford (sore hamstring) Wednesday, much to the chagrin of the Charlotte Bobcats. The Hawks won 104-92, and Johnson was a factor, double-doubling in 32 minutes. Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if the 'Cats were too terrified to rebound against Johnson, who is banned from the Korean basketball league (seriously). Johnson scored 12 points (4-11 FG, 4-6 FT), grabbed 15 rebounds, handed out three assists, stole three balls and blocked a shot. I was wrong earlier when I said he didn't have fantasy value. He does as long as Horford and Pachulia are out. He's owned in 1 percent of Yahoo leagues. Josh Smith dominated the game: 30 points (15-24 FG, 0-2 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 38 minutes. Kyle Korver was also hot, hitting 8-of-11 shots (5-of-6 3-pointers) for 21 points to go with four rebounds, two assists and a steal. Korver is playing well of late. He's hit 26 3-pointers in his last 10 games. He's 52-percent owned in Yahoo leagues and is worth riding while he's on a heater. For the Bobcats, Ramon Sessions was just about the only guy to show up, scoring 27 points (10-16 FG, 6-6 FT) with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and two steals. He's playing well off the bench (53 percent owned).
