Joe Johnson: (Illness) Game-Time Decision Friday Staff

Update: Johnson missed shootaround due an illness and is a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Suns, the New York Daily News reports.

Recommendation: Johnson must have woken up with the illness Friday morning before shootaround since there was no previously reported illness. Check back closer to Friday's 7:30 PM ET tipoff to confirm his status. With Jerry Stackhouse already ruled out with a sore hamstring, the Nets would be thin at shooting guard if Johnson sits. This could mean more minutes for MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans.
