Nets' Joe Johnson Sitting With Sore Left Heel

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson will not play in Friday's game against the Houston Rockets due to a sore left heel, said Nets general manager Billy King on ESPN New York 98.7. He said that Johnson is listed as day-to-day but does not think the injury is a major concern.
"I'm not [worried], " King said. "It's something that's sore and if it was a playoff game he'd probably push it, but with it not being one we are going to be a little cautious with it."
King mentioned that Joe Johnson was feeling better than he was two days ago in the game against the Milwaukee Bucks but will see Sunday if Johnson will be ready for the Grizzlies.
"If it's still tender and sore, we may keep him out, because it's a marathon we're trying to finish, not a sprint."
Joe Johnson's injury was described as a "sore heel, like plantar fasciitis". A sore heel would not be cause for alarm but plantar fasciitis would be another thing all together. Johnson has been the most durable player for the Nets this season, as he has started in all 55 games this season.

Joe Johnson is averaging 17 points on 42.3% shooting to go with 3.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds, all below his career average. On the bright side, he's hit three game-winners this season for the Nets.
