Q: How’s your surgically-repaired left thumb healing? Tyler Johnson: “Good. It’s going really good. I got a couple more weeks and I’ll be out the cast completely and just rehabbing. So, it’s going well.” Q: How will it feel when you finally take the cast off? Tyler: “Good. Right now, it’s a little bit of a special cast. So I can tighten it and untighten it, so it’s not as restrictive as what it would be like fully, fully wrapped up. That’s a plus, I guess.”

Tyler Johnson does not know the pain associated with a knee injury. So, when Bulls center Robin Lopez landed on the back of his left leg during the second half of Monday’s game and he felt something in his knee. … he was very worried. “Initially it felt like my knee popped,” Tyler said today after watching his Miami Heat teammates go through their shootaround in preparation for tonight’s game against the Bucks. “That’s why when I went down I started grabbing at my knee and that was what was more worrisome than anything else.

But to have the entire team race the length of the court as he stayed down was testimony to what this team thinks of Tyler. “Tyler’s one of those guys that you never know,” said James Johnson, who is as close to Tyler as any player on the team. “He could have had a broken leg, and he’d still be sitting here making sure we was all good, making sure that our spirits were still high. But it’s hard to read that guy.” “We’re all in the trenches together. And we all have respect for Tyler and we all love him. It don’t surprise me.”
