Johnson reportedly signed a shoe deal with Nike in August 2015 and has been sporting the Kobe Bryant-style kicks ever since, an ode to his favorite player while growing up in southern California. But those shoes might be causing him a problem. “We think it’s coming from the shoes he’s wearing,” Van Gundy said of Johnson’s foot issues. “He’s fine. Nothing came up on the (CT) scan. He’s just got irritation down there.”
