The Toronto Raptors will be without the services of Amir Johnson on Monday night when they entertain the New Orleans Pelicans at the Air Canada Centre.

Johnson has been dealing with ankle pain after turning on it in a January 29 win over the Orlando Magic.

An MRI on Johnson's ankle came back clean according to coach Dwane Casey, but he will be given the night off as the pain persists. Patrick Patterson will replace Johnson in the starting line-up.

In 50 games this season, the 26-year-old Johnson is averaging 10.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.
