Joe Johnson (plantar fasciitis) will not require surgery this summer.

Johnson struggled down the stretch and was awful in the Nets' Game 7 loss, and GM Billy King said that Johnson wouldn't have played in Games 1 and 2 if Brooklyn had advanced. "It was getting to the point where we were getting diminishing returns," said King. Injuries aside, that quote applies to Johnson's entire repertoire at this point in his career.
