Kellan Olson: Cam Johnson is back up after staying down on the floor for a good minute. Walking on his own. Did not look good on the replay given it was unclear what happened.
Duane Rankin: "He's fine. He was ready to go and we found out that same day. It wasn't anything earth shattering about the whole deal. He was just sick." #Suns coach Monty Williams on Cam Johnson, who missed Game 6 of WCF Wednesday with a non-COVID illness.
Chris Haynes: Phoenix Suns say Cameron Johnson is out tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers with a non-COVID-19 illness.
Kellan Olson: Suns center Deandre Ayton (left knee soreness) is questionable for tomorrow's game against the Spurs. Cam Johnson and Abdel Nader remain out.
Duane Rankin: "He's straight. Cam's a warrior. He's going to fight through anything." Jevon Carter on Cam Johnson, who suffered a nasal fracture in yesterday's practice. Will be available for #Suns game tonight against San Antonio.
Kellan Olson: Cam Johnson (low back/right hip contusion) and Deandre Ayton (right hip soreness) have been added to the injury report and are questionable. Aron Baynes (rib contusion) also added and is probable.
Gina Mizell: #Suns rookie Cam Johnson (calf) is out tonight at Denver. Williams unofficially called his status “day-to-day.”
Kellan Olson: Suns announce that Ty Jerome is out indefinitely due to a right ankle sprain he suffered in practice on Monday. He will be re-evaluated over the next 2-4 weeks. Injury report also has Cam Johnson out for Friday night in Denver.
Duane Rankin: Rookie Ty Jerome (right ankle sprain) remains out for Friday's game at Denver. He was on crutches and wearing a boot last night. Rookie Cam Johnson (left calf soreness) is "TBD" according to the #Suns notes. I got a feeling he'll play against the #Nuggets, but we'll see.
Kellan Olson: Ty Jerome (right ankle sprain) and Cam Johnson (left calf soreness) are both out for tomorrow's season opener. They are the only two players on the Suns' injury report.

NBA Central: “I talked to Rich Paul, and Rich Paul was the one who told me, ‘We want out. We want out. And we’ll go to whatever degree we have to go to in order to get out. We want to be anywhere but in Philadelphia.'” – @RealJayWilliams (Via ESPN | h/t Bleacher Report) pic.twitter.com/8TzNQQi1LB

The core leaders on the 76ers — such as Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle — and most of the team were set to take a jet to see Simmons before being turned away, sources said. Multiple sources said Simmons didn’t want his teammates, some of whom he considers friends, to make the Philadelphia-to-Los Angeles commute out of courtesy because he won’t change his mind on wanting a trade.
The 76ers’ training camp begins this upcoming week, with Media Day on Monday. Simmons has mentally checked out as a member of the 76ers, sources said, meaning whether or not he ever appears in Philadelphia this season the organization may never again receive the same dedicated player.
So far, the 76ers have not received an offer they deem enough to move Simmons and the franchise has wanted Simmons back to rejoin an Eastern Conference contender. Philadelphia has no trade imminent, although teams are calling, according to sources. Simmons has four years and $147 million left on his max contract.

Darren Wolfson: Sachin Gupta wants Ben Simmons. The same hurdles remain, but can he now be more creative on three-team scenarios? That still seems to be the key. But make not mistake: Gupta is all in on acquiring Ben Simmons.
Darren Wolfson: (Gupta) is going to work his ass off to try to acquire Ben Simmons and he has full authority to do so. Glen Taylor, Marc Lore, Alex Rodriguez… Trust me, they’ve given him the green light
