The Los Angeles Lakers have signed forward Stanley Johnson to a second 10-day contract, the team announced Thursday.

This news was first reported Wednesday, and the Lakers are now welcoming the 25-year-old forward back into the fold after he didn’t play in Tuesday’s win against the Sacramento Kings.

Johnson played in five games during his first 10-day stint, including three starts in Los Angeles’ small-ball lineup with LeBron James at center. He averaged 6.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 25.2 minutes while shooting 45.8% overall and 25% from deep.

The energy and intensity he brings on both ends of the floor always ignited the Lakers, a unit that has often struggled with those traits this season. With Johnson back, the Lakers maintain roster flexibility with Rajon Rondo’s departure and get a longer look at Johnson before financially committing to him for the rest of the year.
