I need some help on this one, because I have no idea what’s going on. If you have Joe Johnson on any of your teams, you already know this, but his value is plummeting like an Internet stock in May 2000.
The best guess I have is that he’s suffering lingering effects from the calf injury that kept out for a few games back in December. It sounds like he may also be battling the flu and turf toe (I didn’t know basketball players could get that either) at the moment, so maybe it’s just a case of a lot of things adding up at once. But whatever it is, we’ve officially reached “slump” status and his fans (and teammates) are hoping he can break out of it soon.
