The Phoenix Suns have been doing well in basketball ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, but it looks like some trouble is about to hit. Cam Johnson suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee and will undergo surgery, the team announced on Sunday. There is currently no timetable for his return.

Johnson was injured during Phoenix’s 108–106 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. Johnson appeared to have injured his knee in the first quarter of the competition and did not return to play after being substituted.

This season, Johnson moved to the position of starting power forward for the Suns. He started in the team’s first eight games of the season and is averaging 13 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Deadlines are likely to be set in the near future, but Johnson will definitely miss out on some time and possibly a significant amount.

In the absence of Johnson, Torrey Craig and Dario Sharik will likely see their roles on Phoenix rise significantly. The Suns will sense the absence of Jay Crowder at this time. Crowder has been a powerful starting forward for the team in the previous two seasons, but he is currently out of the team, pending a trade. Perhaps Johnson’s injury will push Crowder to return to the team. Either way, the Suns will have to rely on the entire roster to energize in the absence of a starting lineup.
