X-rays on the right ankle of Raptors forward Amir Johnson taken after Wednesday's game came back negative, TSN.ca reports. Johnson tweaked the ankle Wednesday but still managed to post a double-double in his tema's 98-83 win over the Magic

This was Johnson's best game in forever and it wasn't a coincidence that Patrick Patterson was out due to his broken nose. Johnson's last double-double came back on Jan. 8, and he hadn't hit double figures in scoring or boards in his previous five games coming into this one. Patterson was a surprise DNP and isn't going to miss much time, making us leery about recommending Johnson as a hot pickup. It looks more like a fluke than anything else. As for the ankle injury, X-rays were negative and Johnson said post game that his it's not a big deal, but we're going to list him as questionable for his next game.
