Heat's James Johnson: Out Thursday vs. Hornets

Johnson (foot) will be held out for Thursday's preseason game against the Hornets, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Johnson departed Tuesday's matchup against the Magic with a left ankle injury, and the team will hold him out Thursday as a precaution. It's possible the veteran could play in the exhibition finale Friday against the 76ers, but getting healthy for the regular-season opener next week is obviously Johnson's top priority.
