Wesley Johnson (strained tendon) and Jordan Farmar (calf strain), who both missed Tuesday’s preseason game against Denver, are unlikely to play in the team’s contest against Sacramento in Las Vegas on Thursday.
“They’re getting better,” coach Mike D’Antoni said after Wednesday’s practice. “They probably won’t play tomorrow just to be careful. Maybe in Beijing they’ll play, but right now, doubtful they’ll play tomorrow.”
Johnson left Sunday’s game against Denver late in the first quarter and did not return. An MRI showed that he has a strained tendon, and the team listed him as day-to-day. Farmar did not play the last two preseason games (he was held out of Sunday’s game for rest), although he did go through pregame drills before Tuesday’s game.
