 MIAMI (AP) -Miami Heat forward Alexander Johnson is expected to miss Sunday's game with the Detroit Pistons because of a concussion suffered in a scary on-court collision with a teammate.
Johnson was injured with about 9 minutes left in Miami's 109-95 loss at Washington when teammate Mark Blount's elbow accidentally struck Johnson's temple. The second-year player from Florida State was helped into the locker room, where he was conscious but generally not responsive.
He was evaluated at George Washington University Hospital and cleared to fly home with the Heat on Saturday.
Johnson is averaging 4.2 points in 42 games this season with the Heat, who have already lost Dwyane Wade, Alonzo Mourning, Udonis Haslem, Shawn Marion and Dorell Wright to season-ending injuries.
