Default Joe Johnson Done for Season?

Quote:
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.

Bad news, his absence will be greatly missed. I loved watching him play and giving it his best night in and night out. This will open up some playing time for Salim and will prove if he can ball like he says. The worst news is that this may be a long term injury if they have to rip open his ankle.

Well there goes your playoffs hopes....Man so many players are already done for the season.

Well look at the bright side, the other younger players on your squad will get more playing time.

So... we're into April. About a week ago, we got an update that he was off crutches and participating in some shooting drills.

Anyone care to give any odds if he's going to try to play again this season? There are fantasy games at stake!

I think that if he's healthy, his return should take a lot of pressure off of Josh Smith and Marvin Williams to be "the man".
