Injuries Impacting Nets’ Joe Johnson
Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson admitted that he’s essentially playing on one leg at this point and probably wouldn’t be playing if it were the regular season.
Johnson is hampered by plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
“I can’t really push the basketball if I get a rebound, I can’t really run pick-and-rolls, so basically I’m a decoy, a spot-up shooter, I can’t really do a whole lot,” Johnson said. “Like I told Deron [Williams] and Brook [Lopez], I’ll be the bailout guy. If you get into a sticky situation just try and find me.”
