Amir Johnson PF/C TOR 2 Months

Amir Johnson said he will not need surgery on his right ankle.

His ankle bothered him from February to May and it cost him five games while also limiting him in several others. Johnson was extremely efficient with the Raptors last year, making 56.2 percent of his shots for 10.4 points per game. He'll be a solid mid-round pick in drafts next year.

Amir Johnson will see doctors about his right ankle, which he injured during Sunday's Game 7.

"I just had to keep going," Johnson said. "The game was too important to sit down or get subbed out so I kept playing." He is no stranger to ankle injuries and he didn't let Sunday's injury prevent him from piling up 20 points and 10 rebounds, so hopefully it's nothing more than a sprain.

Amir Johnson (knee) played 21 minutes in Friday's Game 6 loss, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with five rebounds and one steal.

Johnson has played through injuries all year and it's hard to ride him for being unproductive, but the Raps will need more out of he and Patrick Patterson (eight points, three rebounds, two blocks, 26 minutes) if they're going to advance.

Amir Johnson injured his left knee during Sunday's Game 4 road victory, but he continued to play and finished with 17 points, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 30 minutes.

He picked up his fifth foul on a blocking call in the third quarter, and Paul Pierce added injury to insult by landing on Johnson's knee during the play. He never went into the locker room and will play through any injury that doesn't hospitalize him, so he should be ready to go for Game 5 in Toronto on Wednesday.

Amir Johnson (back) went to the locker room in the second half and did return to action on Friday vs. the Nets.

He went to stretch out his back, which is somewhat good news because it wasn't due to his oft-injured ankle. Johnson scored seven points with four boards, one assist and four fouls in 29 minutes in tonight's loss. He'll likely be ready for Game 4 on Sunday.

Amir Johnson bounced back from a poor Game 1 showing for 16 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on 8-of-10 shooting in Tuesday's Game 2 win over the Nets.

Johnson looked like a different player tonight and it's possible his ankle is feeling better. Patrick Patterson was also effective again with 12 points, nine rebounds and a 3-pointer, while Greivis Vasquez added 11 points, eight assists and a steal in 25 minutes. It looks like these three players will share time for the rest of this series.

Amir Johnson (ankle) was a non-factor in the Raptors' Game 1 defeat, scoring two points with three rebounds in just 21 minutes of action.

If Johnson's matchup with Paul Pierce is a key to the series the Raptors might be in trouble, as he couldn't take advantage of Pierce in the paint offensively and couldn't defend him on the other end. Johnson's recently sprained ankle is part of the problem and he's unlikely to be 100 percent for Game 2 on Tuesday, so the Raptors may once again lean heavily on Patrick Patterson (nine points, five rebounds in 26 minutes).

Amir Johnson said that his ankle feels "good" as he prepares to defend Paul Pierce in the first round of the playoffs.

It's a tough matchup for Johnson and it will be even harder if his ankle limits his mobility. Since the All-Star break Johnson has averaged 10.4 points on 60.0 percent shooting, with 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.2 blocks per game.

Amir Johnson looked to suffer an ankle injury against the Knicks on Wednesday.

There has been no word from the team just yet, but he did play only 15 minutes after he seemed a bit hobbled. Johnson scored just two points with four boards, one assist and two turnovers in a loss. He'll need the two days off as the Raptors head into the playoffs. They'll face the Nets this weekend.

Amir Johnson scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in Monday's win.

Johnson logged 28 minutes and with the Raps likely tied with the Bulls for the No. 3 seed after tonight, his chances of playing on Wednesday are better than they might have been in a less competitive scenario. Patrick Patterson (three points, 1-of-7 FGs, five boards, two steals, 20 minutes) has taken a back seat with Johnson playing well.
