James Johnson might not be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from sports-hernia surgery.
The Heat may be down two opening day starters if Dion Waiters is also not ready to go. The main downside for Miami players is the logjam of talent, but this could open up opportunities for Justise Winslow, Kelly Olynyk and Bam Abedayo to get more playing time until Johnson is fully recovered. If he misses regular season time, it should not be very much.
