The Phoenix Suns have been without sharpshooter Cameron Johnson for the majority of March, but with only a few weeks left in the season, some good news is on the horizon.
According to Suns reporter Kellan Olson, head coach Monty Williams is hoping that Johnson will make his return to action within the next week.
Johnson has been out nearly a month after suffering a quad injury, last suiting up for the Suns on March 4, in a game where he had a season-high 38 points in a one-point win over the New York Knicks.
With the NBA Playoffs starting in just a few weeks, the news of Johnson’s imminent return is huge for the Suns. Before his injury, Johnson was averaging 12.8 points per game while shooting an astonishing 44.8 percent from three.
Even without Johnson, and point guard Chris Paul who recently returned from a thumb injury, the Suns are dominating the NBA, having already clinched the best record in the league, 61-14, and the one seed in the Western Conference.
Phoenix has just seven games remaining this year, with the regular-season closing on Sunday, April 10, against the Sacramento Kings.
