There’s something about Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson and the Chicago Bulls that doesn’t mix. After injuring his leg in January against Chicago, Tyler once again fell victim to injury last night. He sprained his ankle in the second quarter and did not return.
The good news is, Johnson is listed as probable for tomorrow’s game against Brooklyn.

The Heat may still elect to keep him out for precautionary reasons, and if that’s the case we could potentially see Rodney McGruder step up to take his place. Either that or Dwyane Wade will see an increase in minutes, but that’s doubtful headed into the postseason.
Still, it’s good to know that the injury isn’t major, especially after Miami just got their team to “mostly” full health.
