Johnson will not play in Friday's preseason finale against the Heat due to rest purposes, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The 76ers likely feel they don't need to see much from Johnson, who is currently serving as a veteran on a young team, and will give him the night off while Philadelphia has one final tune up before the start of the regular season. Johnson is expected to come off the bench for the 76ers this season and serve as a valuable mentor for the numerous young big men the team has on their roster.
Johnson (ankle) will start at center during Friday's game against the Celtics, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Johnson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, but is considered probable for Friday's preseason matchup with the Celtics, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Johnson sat out Wednesday's exhibition due to a sprained ankle, but he was able to go through portions of Thursday's practice without issue.

Johnson sprained his right ankle during Tuesday's practice and is questionable for Wednesday's preseason game against the Grizzlies, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
