Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson, who was bothered by plantar fasciitis in his left foot during the second half of the regular season and the playoffs, told Barclays Center TV last Friday that his foot is "100 percent."
"I've basically nursed my foot since we got eliminated and my foot is 100 percent," Johnson said. "I'm just working out now, getting in shape and trying to prepare for next season."
Johnson was asked about his new coach, Jason Kidd.
"It's very weird, because in my 12 years in the NBA, I've played against Kidd for all 12, and now he's gonna be the head coach," Johnson said. "So it'll be a little different, but in a sense it'll be good for us because he'll be able to relate to us probably a little more."
