As a coach, you expect your players to stay in shape during the summer. Of course, that means an off-season injury is a possibility. That appears to be the case here.

According to television station KFVS, SEMO forward Nino Johnson has suffered a bone bruise during a pickup basketball game. The bruise will require about four weeks to heal, which means Johnson will return in time for fall practices.

It could have been much worse. The initial fear was that Johnson tore his ACL, which would have likely been a season ender.

Johnson had a breakout season last year, averaging 11 points per game and a team-high 8.8 rebounds. He also set a Redhawks single-season record with 84 blocks.
