Joe Johnson is OUT tonight against the 76ers

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

BROOKLYN - Jason Kidd announced prior to the start of tonight's game against the Philadelphia 76ers that Joe Johnson will sit out due to tendinitis in his right knee.

Kidd said that the team will re-evaluate Johnson tomorrow, and see how he feels. He also mentioned that this is something that has "been bothering him for some time."

This will be the second missed game of the season for Johnson. The first was earlier in the year with the Nets on the road against the 76ers, of course. In that game, the Nets lost to Philadelphia in overtime by one point, 121-120.

Also of note, Andrei Kirilenko, as expected, will not play against the 76ers because of a sore calf, while Andray Blatche remains a game-time decision 90 minutes prior to tip.

Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder, personal) will play for the 76ers.
