Amir Johnson on Paul Pierce's comments about #raptors lacking "it": "It’s just like...when you use Viagra...how do you get yourself going?”

Doug Smith

Amir Johnson has 8-8 in 15 minutes for Raptors vs. Cs where defence has turned optional

8 mins into game, Amir Johnson checks in for Raps after missing four; about 40 seconds later gets first foul

Eric Smith

4:09 left in Q1 ... Amir Johnson checks in. Good to see him back for the #raptors

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Raptors Amir Johnson (ankle) will play, but come off the bench. DeMar DeRozan (rest) will dress but not play. Greivis Vasquez will start.

Sean Grande

DeMar DeRozan will sit, Amir Johnson off the bench tonight for the Raptors, who apparently aren't as keen on the 3-seed as we thought.

Gary Washburn

No DeRozan for the #Raptors but Amir Johnson is active vs, #celtics

Eric Smith

In case the "RT" wasn't clear...Amir Johnson is ACTIVE (could play) but not starting. Hansbrough starts. Vasquez starts for DeRozan (rest)

Ryan Wolstat

Tyler Hansbrough has been fantastic in place of Amir Johnson. Especially when playing PF not C. Just better at PF.

Doug Smith

No big surprise, no Amir Johnson for #raptors at Heat; Lowry and Ross both will play. Lowry may not go 33 minutes again, or he might

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson would play if tonight was a post-season game. Full shootaround yesterday, full pre-game shootaround today. pre-playoff caution.

Ryan Wolstat

Casey on Amir Johnson: "He'll be a few days, where his ankle is, hopefully we'll get him a game under his belt before we hit the playoffs."

Ira Winderman

Amir Johnson again out for Raptors. Kyle Lowry will play both ends of back-to-back in his return for Toronto.

Ryan Wolstat

No Raptors shootaround today, so we won’t know until pre-game whether Amir Johnson Terrence Ross will play. Lowry will barring any setback

Ryan Wolstat

With Amir Johnson out, Terrence Ross does the traditional hang on the rim while swaying back and forth thanks to Jonas Valanciunas

Ryan Wolstat

In interest of clarity, re last tweet, Amir Johnson did not say Miami return was more likely. He just said he was feeling good.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson told me he was feeling “really good” but tomorrow in Miami still seems a lot more likely.

Eric Smith

Amir Johnson is still a no go.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson went through full shootaround but still likely out

Rick Bonnell

No Kyle Lowry (back spasms) or Amir Johnson (sprained knee) for the Raptors tonight.

Eric Koreen

Lowry and Amir Johnson both unlikely for tomorrow's game in Charlotte

Amir Johnson did not participate in practice. "Still sore, still limping, can't put weight on it," Casey said.

Eric Koreen

Tyler Hansbrough starting in place of Amir Johnson. #spacing

Payal Doshi

"Amir Johnson can't play but Patrick Patterson is a great four man off the bench," - coach Brad Stevens of Celtics.

Eric Koreen

Amir Johnson will be out "for a little bit," according to Dwane Casey. His sprained ankle is quite swollen.

Mark Murphy

No Lowry or Amir Johnson for Toronto tonight.

Gary Washburn

No Amir Johnson (ankle) and Kyle Lowry (back) tonight for #Raptors. #Celtics

Eric Smith

Amir Johnson will not play tonight. Nor will Kyle Lowry. Casey says re: Amir ..."it could be a little bit" #rtz #Raptors

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics may have caught a break tonight. The #Raptors will remain w/o Kyle Lowry (back) and Amir Johnson (ankle) is doubtful. #CelticsTalk

Eric Smith

Keep in mind folks, the absence of Amir Johnson down the stretch / in the 2nd half was substantial as well. Game came down to 1 play/miss

Sherman Hamilton

Amir Johnson will not return...sprained right ankle #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson has shot 67% from three at home but was around 20% on road before going 2-for-4 in Minny #randomraptorstats

Payal Doshi

The heart and soul of the Raptors, @Amir Johnson has 6 assists and is 2/3 from beyond the arc. #SummerThree #BalMovement #rtz

Payal Doshi

Points Per Game blog looks at DeRozan’s huge March, relaxed Raptors locker room Amir Johnson and more: blogs.canoe.ca/courtside/bask…

Jonathan Feigen

DeRozan has a career-high 40, but misses two free throws with 45.4 left. Harden and Amir Johnson to jump it up.

Jonathan Feigen

DeRozan nearly missed entire backboard on a drive. Got just enough for rebound to fall to Amir Johnson for a layup and 2-pt lead, 1:54 left.

Jonathan Feigen

As has become the routine, Harden defending power forwards again tonight. First Patterson, now Amir Johnson.

Gary Lee

I still remember Amir Johnson's career game in Kobe Bryant's return from Achilles rupture two years ago.

KC Johnson

That Amir Johnson drive, basket and 3-point chance fairly well representative of very flat defensive effort thus far from Bulls.

Payal Doshi

Amir Johnson finding his way through the rotation on offence for the Raptors. Give me 4 points on 6 points, 8 rebounds and counting. #rtz

Al Iannazzone

Lot of pushing and shoving going on between Bargnani and Amir Johnson
