The Nets have announced that Joe Johnson will be a game-time decision tonight against the New Orleans Hornets. Johnson, who has missed the last two games with a sore heel (plantar fasciitis), said that he is feeling "better" but admitted that he wanted to remain cautious, according to the New York Times' Zach Schonbrun.

The Nets are currently riding a two-game losing streak without Johnson in the lineup. If he does indeed miss, expect to see C.J. Watson pick up another start at shooting guard.
