Joe Johnson could be out three to four weeks, and possibly the remainder of the season due to a deep contusion in his right calf muscle.
Johnson was kicked in the leg by teammate Esteban Batista early in Monday's loss to Miami and was later kneed in the thigh of the same leg by the Heat's Eddie Jones. He played through both injuries.
A hematoma formed under the calf muscle, and Johnson had to go to the hospital early Tuesday morning.
His absence, IMO, will be a big loss to the Hawks. I don't see any other player on that roster that will be able to take over.
