After a hot start to the 2022-23 season, the Suns took a significant blow to their frontcourt depth.

During a Nov. 4 loss to Portland, Phoenix forward Cameron Johnson suffered a knee injury that could sideline him for an extended period.

Replacing Johnson’s production will be a challenge for the Suns, as they are already without Jae Crowder. Phoenix and Crowder mutually agreed that he would not be with the team while the front office attempts to find a trade partner.

Here’s everything we know about Johnson’s injury and the latest news on when he may return to the court.


What is Cameron Johnson’s injury?

The Suns announced on Nov. 6 that Johnson had suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee, adding that he will undergo surgery.

“He’s a starter for us, so that’s always a tough blow, just to see a guy not be in the lineup, that kind of thing,” Phoenix coach Monty Williams said of Johnson’s injury. “That happens throughout the season. You just have to make your adjustments.”

How long will Cameron Johnson be out?

In their statement, the Suns didn’t offer a recovery timeline, only saying that Johnson will be out “until further notice.”

Johnson is averaging 13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game this season while shooting 44.6 percent from the field and 43.1 percent from 3-point range.
