The good news is Brandon Bass is listed as day-to-day. The bad news is it is his Achilles tendon that's injured and that is a very painful injury to deal with.
Avery Johnson said an MRI taken Tuesday was negative.
"He has something there that we have to manage more than what we've been managing here recently," Johnson said. "He was playing pretty good, but the last two games he's been struggling physically."
Johnson said the clinching blow was when he went for a blocked shot against Washington and landed underneath the basket on the foot. "That pretty much sent it downhill," Johnson said.
