Johnson is in a boot yet believes he will be out days and not weeks. He is no better than questionable for Friday’s tilt against the Nets. In his place Derrick Jones may start or Josh Richardson will get moved to the two and Justise Winslow will start. Jones and Winslow are just flier pickups right now for deeper leaguers in case Johnson’s injury is more serious.
Spo on Tyler’s injury: “He is feeling better. We did not get an MRI, it is just an ankle sprain at this point. We will continue to treat and evaluate him.”
