The Utah Jazz announced that Joe Johnson received an MRI on his right wrist.
In their release the Jazz stated that Johnson has “Tendon instability in his right wrist and will be reevaluated in two weeks.”
This is not that surprising considering Johnson’s recent shooting slump. Some had speculated age may have become a factor but it appears his shooting wrist was more of the issue.
The Utah Jazz health team has already done a good job getting Rodney Hood back to form quickly with his early season injury. Let’s hope they can get Joe Johnson back to 100% as well. In Johnson’s absence, this might mean more time for Jonas Jerebko. The depth that Dennis Lindsey built in the offseason is already keeping this team on track towards a playoff spot.
