Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson will miss his second straight game on Sunday night against the Memphis Grizzlies with a sore left heel, the team announced.

Johnson initially felt pain in his heel during the two games before the All-Star break.

It's still unknown if Johnson will return for Tuesday night's game in New Orleans.

"(Trainer Tim Walsh) and Joe, I think, are both encouraged that it's gotten better, it's improving clearly," Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "What's he gonna feel like tomorrow, whether he practices tomorrow or how he feels Tuesday, I don't know. But again, obviously we're gonna err (on the side of caution). When he's ready to come back, we'll bring him back."
