  • Jazz's Joe Johnson: Available to play Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (wrist) is available to play in Friday's game against the Celtics, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Johnson has missed the last 21 games due to a right wrist sprain, and he'll finally make his return Sunday in Boston. Johnson will likely have some limitations placed on him, although what those will exactly be likely won't be determined till after shootaround Sunday morning. For now, Johnson's return could eat into minutes off Rodney Hood and Alec Burks off the bench, but his fit in the rotation will become more clear once he is given a full dose of minutes.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (wrist) will not play during Wednesday's game against the Bulls, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. Johnson will miss his 21st consecutive game Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a right wrist sprain. There was some hope he would be available, but he's still apparently experiencing too much discomfort to see the floor.

  • Johnson (wrist) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Johnson has been sidelined for the past 20 games while recovering from a right wrist sprain. He was questionable heading into Wednesday, which hasn't changed following the team's morning shootaround. Even when he does return, he'll likely continue to have a minimal role in the team's gameplan, considering the emergence of both Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks in his absence. As a result, he could end up playing more reserve minutes behind starting power forward Derrick Favors to help provide floor spacing at the position.

  • Johnson (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Johnson has missed the past 20 games while nursing a right wrist sprain. But, he went through limited portions of Monday's practice, which is the first encouraging news we've heard about the veteran since the injury. As a result, he's being considered questionable for Wednesday's contest, though may now have a hard time finding a role considering the emergence of Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks in his absence. Prior to getting hurt, he was seeing 19.1 minutes per contest. More information on his status should be available following Wednesday's morning shootaround.

  • Johnson (wrist) participated in the non-contact portions of Monday's practice, Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. This is the first encouraging sign from Johnson since he was diagnosed with tendon instability in his right wrist, as it's the first report of him practicing since he was sidelined on Oct. 31. Given that it's still non-contact, it seems safe to say that Johnson won't return for Tuesday's game in Chicago, but it looks like the veteran swingman is close to being back to full health.
