4/5/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Toronto forward Amir Johnson missed Friday's game against Indiana and is questionable for Saturday's game against Milwaukee due to a sprained ankle.
Insight: Patrick Patterson will replace him in the starting lineup. For some reason, Patterson has actually played better off the bench this season (8.2 ppg as a starter, 8.8 as a reserve).

Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson's nagging right ankle acted up again during Wednesday's game and he's done for the night, according to Josh Lewenberg of tsn.ca.
Insight: Johnson has been bothered by the injury since February. He usually plays through injuries but the Raptors already clinched a playoff spot and can afford to rest him. Patrick Patterson is next in line for minutes.

Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson is probable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland despite suffering from a hyperextended left knee in Sunday's game, according to Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun.

Description: Raptors power forward Amir Johnson played through a knee injury Sunday in a win against Atlanta.
Insight: It wasn't one of Johnson's better outings, at least offensively (six points on 3-for-7 shooting), but you have to admire his toughness. Unless we hear otherwise, we'd expect Johnson to play Tuesday versus Cleveland.
