Melvin Johnson to miss VCU tourney opener vs. Stephen F. Austin

By Jon Rothstein | CBS Sports

VCU's Melvin Johnson will likely miss Friday's game against Stephen F. Austin because of a sprained knee, Rams coach Shaka Smart said.

There is no official timetable for Johnson's return.

"We'll know more on Thursday," Smart said.

The 6-foot-3 Johnson averaged 10.6 points and was VCU's best outside shooter, knocking down 39 percent of his shots from three-point range.
