Nets' Johnson out against Hornets

The Brooklyn Nets will be without starting shooting guard Joe Johnson for Tuesday's clash versus the New Orleans Hornets.

Johnson is inactive with a sore left heel and will be replaced in the starting lineup with C.J. Watson.

The six-time All-Star is averaging 16.6 points per game on 42.7 percent shooting in his first season with the Nets.
