Forward James Johnson remained away from the Heat on Wednesday during the team's second day of training camp.
JJ has not been with the team since Monday's conditioning measurements were conducted by the team. Coach Erik Spoelstra, who has declined further comment, said Tuesday of him, "He is still very much a part of our team and we hope to get him back soon." The Heat are also without Kelly Olynyk, who is recovering from a bruised right knee sustained while working in August with the Canadian national team. Hard to see how this situation plays out but Johnson is likely to return to the team soon, especially since he has a $242K bonus in his contract for body fat percent and weight requirement.
