SALT LAKE CITY — Well, there’s good and bad news.
The good news is that injured Utah Jazz guard Joe Johnson was spotted during Tuesday’s pregame shootaround, working on ball handling with assistant coach Johnnie Bryant without a splint.
The bad news is that the 17-year veteran will miss at least two more weeks with right wrist tendon instability.
Johnson, 36, consulted with a hand specialist Tuesday where he showed progress, but will miss at least another two weeks, per team officials.
He injured the wrist during an Oct. 30 victory against Dallas and has missed the past 14 games. Johnson averages just 6.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists but is a trusted veteran.
Utah (10-11) will travel to Los Angeles Thursday to face the Clippers.
Jazz guards Rodney Hood (left ankle soreness) and Raul Neto (left hamstring soreness) are both questionable for the road game.
