Joe Johnson Injury: Hawks Guard Participates In Shoot Around, Still Game-Time Decision

Injured Hawks guard Joe Johnson is still listed as a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors but took part in the teams shoot around and looks like he is on track to return to action.

Johnson sat out Atlanta's last two games and did not participate in any All-Star weekend activities because of tendinitis in his right knee. Willie Green and Kirk Hinrich each got a start at shooting guard in Johnson's absence. Johnson has appeared in 32 games for the Hawks this season and is averaging 17.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.
