The horizon darkens above phoenix. Without Jae Crowder, pushed out and now apart from the group, the Suns may have to do without for some time Cameron Johnsontheir starting strong winger and Jae Crowder’s replacement in Monty Williams’ five…
Indeed, the 26-year-old injured his right knee on Friday evening, in the first leg of the double confrontation against Portland, and it is already rumored in the camp of the Suns that he would suffer from a tear of a meniscus, pending further examinations…
If this injury were to be confirmed, it would in any case be a huge loss for Phoenix, because the absence of Cameron Johnson (13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals on average this season) would be counted in months, not just weeks. . Everything will depend on the option chosen at the time of the operation. Either we cut the torn part, and it can come back in a few weeks, or we suture the torn part, and it will take longer.
The first option allows a faster return but leads to more long-term complications, including osteoarthritis. Note that Cam Johnson has already suffered a meniscus tear in the NCAA, but it was in the left knee.
The Phoenix Suns fear forward Cam Johnson has suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee, sources tell me and @sam_amick. Testing so far indicates the meniscus injury, and Johnson is receiving further evaluations and imaging.
