Joe Johnson misses practice Thursday in Charlotte

Friday, February 6th, 2009

According to the Charlotte Observer, Joe Johnson missed practice yesterday when the team practiced in Charlotte.  Coach Woodsen said that Joe may play, but he is a game time decision.  In  order  for Joe to be a game time decision he would have to be in Charlotte.  As of  yesterday Joe was still in Atlanta getting over his viral infection.  Team representatives are not ruling out Joe flying up to Charlotte for the game.

Luckly the Hawks are playing the Charlotte Bobcats and the Los Angeles Clippers to close out their week.  The Hawks dodged one bullet without their superstar Joe Johnson with a 94-86 win over the Twolves.  Obviously, if I knew that we were going to win these next two games I would just sit Joe and let him rest.  However, I am not Emmitt Brown and Coach Woodsen, for what I know isn’t either.  These next two games are very important wins for the Hawks, and I hope they can get it done with or without Joe.  I will be watching closely this weekend and will report back if I have news on Johnson.

Update:  Accoring to the official Hawks notes, Joe Johnson is inactive tonight, as well as Speedy Claxton, who has left knee chondromalacia.  The Bobcat’s note list Augustin as probable.
