According to Nets manager Billy King; Brooklyn Nets Guard Joe Johnson is struggling ‘day to day’ with plantar fasciitis. “It (Johnson’s heel) was sore after the Milwaukee game (Wednesday), and he got looked at by our doctors (Thursday) and it was mildly inflamed,” commented Billy King, “He’s on some medication, but it’s likely he’ll play Sunday; he feels better than he did (Thursday)”. Johnson sat out of Friday night’s game against Houston although the team remains optimistic for his return on Sunday.

If you are currently experiencing pain in the ball of your foot or heels, where the plantar fascia is located, then we recommended you seek the care of a chiropodist like Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics. Marz Hardy can examine your feet and work with you to provide an appropriate treatment option to ensure healing and recovery.
