Nets’ Johnson Back Sunday Against Hawks
Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson says he’ll “definitely” play on Sunday night against the Atlanta Hawks. Johnson had missed Tuesday night’s game against the New Orleans Hornets due to a sore left heel.
“I’m actually doing pretty good. I am resting, it feels a lot better. I actually had no pain today. So we’re still just taking it easy,” Johnson said after Thursday’s practice.
The Nets elected to have Johnson sit Tuesday so he’d have five days off instead of four.
“It gives you time to heal up your wounds and time to relax mentally and physically so I think it’s a great time for us considering the fact we probably go out west for a couple weeks, this could really help us out,” Johnson said.
