Joe Johnson To Sit With Form Of Plantar Fasciitis
Billy King said on a radio show Friday that Joe Johnson will miss the Brooklyn Nets' game against the Houston Rockets due to some plantar fasciitis that the veteran guard suffered earlier this week.
"It's going to be day-to-day," King said. "It's better than it was two days ago. So they've got him on medication and I expect it to be much better tomorrow, and then we'll see where he is Sunday. If it's still where it's tender and sore, we may keep him out because this is a marathon we are trying to finish, not a sprint."
King is not concerned about the severity of Johnson's foot injury.
"No, I'm not," King said. It's something that if this was a playoff game, he'd probably push it. But with it not being [one], we are going to be a little cautious on it."
