Johnson’s foot feels better before Game 3 vs Bulls
Question of the Day
“I feel a little better than I did yesterday,” Johnson said while sitting on the scorers’ table before the Nets’ shootaround.
Johnson was acquired in a trade with Atlanta last summer and averaged 16.3 points in his first season with the Nets. He had 17 points on 6-of-18 shooting in 39 minutes in Game 2.
“We need Joe out there, you know,” point guard Deron Williams said. “I mean, he’s a big part of this team. Added scorer out there that we need on the floor, commands double teams when he’s out there, so we need him, we need him healthy.
“That being said, we don’t know how he’s feeling.”
Johnson missed several games during the regular season with a heel injury. He remained on the sideline at the start of the Nets’ shootaround, and was unsure how much he would participate in the morning session.
“Honestly, I don’t even know. I don’t even know what the plan is,” he said. “So I’m just going to go on the floor.”
Interim coach P.J. Carlesimo declined to provide any details. Asked about the plan for Johnson for the day, Carlesimo responded: “We’ll see if he can play. If he can play, he’ll play.”
