Johnson (mouth) will play in Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Johnson had a dental procedure performed earlier in the week that forced him to sit out Monday's game against the Celtics. However, he's expected to play on Wednesday, although he's been give a specialized mouth piece to wear to protect the recent work that was done. As long as the mouth doesn't give him any fits, he could be in line for extended minutes with the likes of Justise Winslow (wrist), Dion Waiters (groin) and Josh Richardson (ankle) all out.
