Jazz veteran guard Joe Johnson (wrist sprain) is expected to return “at some point this week.”
Johnson has missed the last 20 games due to the ailment and it’s still unclear as when during the week he will return. The Jazz play Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week so it’s more than likely one of the latter two games. His return would hurt Alec Burks the most who has been on a tear as of late while both Johnson and Rodney Hood (ankle) have been out. Keep Burks though as his stellar play should keep him in the rotation.
