James Johnson (sports hernia surgery) has been ruled out of Friday's preseason game and was only able to participate in parts of the contact portions at Thursday's practice.
The fact that Johnson hasn't been cleared for full contact casts heavy doubt on his availability for opening night, though the Heat said yesterday that he's right about where they expected him to be. Miami's Swiss Army Knife is a solid late-round selection but will probably need a few weeks to play himself into shape.
