Clippers' Brice Johnson: Does some shooting, but not close to return
Johnson (back) was able to take part in some pregame shooting last week, the Associated Press reports.
Johnson, the Clippers' first-round pick, has been sidelined for the entire season with a herniated disk in his back. While the on-court shooting would seemingly represent a positive sign, coach Doc Rivers indicated that he had no target date for the rookie's return. Even once he's healthy, Johnson isn't likely to be a regular rotation option for Rivers, so he's not worth stashing in single-season formats.
