Joe Johnson SG/SF BKN 3 Hrs
Joe Johnson's sore calf will reportedly sideline him on Wednesday.
He played through the injury in Tuesday's loss and it doesn't sound very serious, but the Nets will err on the side of caution with the playoffs right around the corner. It sounds as though the Nets will have Alan Anderson (abdomen) back in action to fill the gaps at SG, along with Marcus Thornton and Marquis Teague.

Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.
The Nets could fall to the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, so we'll have to see if Jason Kidd goes after seeding or rest for his guys tomorrow. Our guess is the old guys will get a rest and the Nets will have the No. 6 seed, but it's just a guess.

Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.
Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale.

The Nets' All-Star made some tough shots but he also benefited from James Harden's indifferent defense and the Rockets' lack of big men with Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones both unavailable. Joe Cool is shooting 64.3 percent from the field in Brooklyn's past three games, a nice treat for fantasy owners who've ridden him during his unlikely All-Star season.
