Description: Nets guard Joe Johnson has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against Cleveland due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Johnson (15.7 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 3.8 apg) missed Sunday's practice session. Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson will get more floor time if Johnson sits this one out, but have limited upside. Bogdanovic isn't a great scorer, but can rebound. Anderson can get hot an put up points, but isn't much help elsewhere in the box score.
