James Johnson (sports hernia) was back at practice Monday but coach Erik Spoelstra says he needs more work before he makes a return.
Johnson seems unlikely to play in the season opener. Justise Winslow was limited because of a hamstring injury so Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr. could see extended run in the Heat's opener. Johnson should not miss much more time after the opener and should return with late-round value.
