Heat's Tyler Johnson: Will not play Monday

Johnson will not play in Monday's game against the Celtics after having surgery on his mouth, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.

It appears as though it was a teeth issue for Johnson that will hold him out and he doesn't currently have a timetable for his return. Nevertheless, with Dion Waiters (groin) also out Monday, the Heat will be light on backcourt depth and allow for Josh Richardson to potentially play a heavy dose of minutes at both point and shooting guard.
