Tyler Johnson is expected to play tonight versus the Nets, despite missing the past five games due to a shoulder injury. Though Johnson is expected to return, small forward Justise Winslow (ankle) will not play, as he has been ruled out for tonight’s game by head coach Erik Spoelstra.
Starting center Hassan Whiteside is also dealing with an illness, and is questionable to play in Monday night’s game.
