• Grading the biggest free-agent deals so far | SI’s free agency tracker Johnson languished with the dead-end Nets last season, but his midseason move to the Heat showed that he still can still be an effective contributor in a complementary role.Last season, Utah found its initiators—Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood and Alec Burks (when healthy)—struggling to work in cramped quarters and lacking in kick-out options.And from that moment it just kinda catapulted from there.”Joe Johnson will be entering his 14th NBA season in 2014-15 with his mother, now cancer free, right by his side, right where she’s always been.With Johnson out of commission for at least the next two weeks, Joe Ingles, Thabo Sefolosha and Donovan Mitchell should see an uptick in minutes, and Rodney Hood may be forced to spend some more time at the three.
If you could couple any two white, heterosexual Hollywood stars together, would you pick “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson — you know, that poor thing that was roped into “50 Shades of Grey? And as we all know, you cannot enjoy the sweet tannins of a savory Pinot Noir in the company of another person unless you are all caps TOGETHER. Hamm, 46, and Johnson, 28, were also spotted together at Elton John’s 70th birthday party in April, so you know. Hamm called it quits with his partner of 18 years, Jennifer Westfeldt, in 2015. Johnson split from a dude named Matthew Hitt in 2016 after dating for two years.
Johnson should be cut in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot.
It's not clear exactly when Johnson suffered this wrist injury or its severity, but for now, we'll have to consider him questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Trail Blazers.
He is out indefinitely and the team says it will provide updates when appropriate.
There is some concern that Exum could miss this season due to the injury suffered on Oct. He's had some terrible luck in his career with this injury and an ACL tear three summers ago.
That trio would give Utah good size and athleticism overall, promising on-ball defense from Exum, off-the-dribble explosiveness from Burks, and reliable spacing from Johnson.
