Joe Johnson to Miss All-Star Game

CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger is reporting on Twitter that Joe Johnson will miss Atlanta’s next two games and the All-Star Game this weekend due to tendinitis in his left knee. Johnson, who was in the news yesterday with his comments on the struggling Hawks, is averaging 17.6 ppg for the 19-13 Hawks.

    has to be josh smith, co sign y’all

    Joe Johnson should not have been an all-star this year…as much as I love his game he has not showed progression at all…the Hawks desperately need to make a move or they will be bounced 1st round of the playoffs…I cosign with ‘spit hot fiyah’ Josh Smith earned it this year…JJ would make a solid #2 option imo…

    i really want to say Kyrie. what a rookie season. But Josh Smith was mad snubbed. gotta be him

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    oooh, but rumor has it it’s Rondo. SMH

  • Ill Smith

    Does his ASG replacement have to be a guard? If so its either Rondo or Kyrie for the spot even though I’m not too sold on either pick. If not I see Stern giving it to Danny Granger.

    Yeah it has to be a big, if so I’ll be bias & say Noah or Boozer. Although I have a feeling it’ll be Bosh or Smith.

  • Shifty

    Rondo deserves it. Almost averaging a triple double. One of the few people this year to already have a triple double.

    Boozer does not deserve to be in ASG this year, I’ve seen jelly that has more backbone than that guy…

  • Chris6

    Bosh is already an all star this year

    Shouldn’t have made it in the first place.

  • Chou

    JOSH SMITH, nuff said

  • dumbworld

    He has to be replaced by someone who plays his position idiots.. thats why Rondo was chosen, arguments can be made about J Lin and Kyrie but not Josh Smith… wtf?!


    Amar’e and Josh Smith face each other tonight at the Garden. Let’s see who’s the All-Star.

  • SikhWitIt

  • riggs

    Josh Smith is really proving you guys wrong LMAO.

  • Ismael

    He didn’t deserve to be an All-Star in the first place.
