San Antonio Spurs forward Keldon Johnson is returning tonight after being sidelined since February 16 for COVID protocols.
Although Johnson is eligible to return, head coach Gregg Popovich said that he’d be coming off the bench and play very little minutes.
Makes sense to ease him back into things, and Johnson will have to work his conditioning back to where he was.
The 21-year-old out of Kentucky has showed his full potential this season, and nearly all his numbers went up from his rookie season last year.
Johnson is averaging 14.5 points on 46.8% shooting, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in his sophomore campaign.
