Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson (sore heel) will try to be play tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, but is ultimately a game-time decision. The six time All-Star hasn't played in the last three games since experiencing discomfort in his heel on the second night of back-to-back games with the Milwaukee Bucks on February 20th. He was inactive at home against Houston and Memphis last week, and did not play a minute of action despite dressing against New Orleans on Tuesday.
Johnson told beat writers that he was willing to give it a shot.
Marshon Brooks (sore wrist) is also a game=time decision. The second year guard sat out of practice yesterday due to the injury.
Nets guard and elder statesman Jerry Stackhouse will be inactive for the second straight game tonight against Dallas.
