Johnson will head to the bench in favor of Gerald Green for Friday's Game 2 matchup against the Cavaliers, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.

Coach Brad Stevens, after the Celtics got blown out on their home floor during Game 1, will opt to replace Johnson's size with Green's speed with the change to the starting five. The last time Johnson came off the pine in favor of Green was during Game 3 of the Celtics/Wizards series, where he played 10 minutes and finished with three points, four rebounds and one assist.
