Joe Johnson Injury Update: Hawks SG Takes Full Practice Tuesday, Game Time Decision Against Warriors

Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Joe Johnson pulled out of the NBA All-Star Game over the weekend with a sore knee and was replaced by Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics. As the NBA teams get back to the regular-season grind this week, it appears the injury will not keep Johnson out of the Hawks lineup for long, if at all.

Nubyjas Wilborn of 1500 ESPN Radio reported on Tuesday that Johnson took part in a full practice and full contact drills with the team. Zack Klein at WSB followed up later in the day that Hawks head coach Larry Drew stated Johnson would be a game time decision for Wednesday's game against the visiting Golden State Warriors.

Drew also stated that Zaza Pachulia would be a game time decision against the Warriors. Pachulia was icing his left calf following practice.
