Toronto Raptors forward/centre Amir Johnson was absent from practice on Monday.

Though the 26-year-old said he was able to participate, coach Dwane Casey kept Johnson out as a precaution.

Johnson re-sprained his ankle in Sunday night's 105-90 win over the Orlando Magic. He initially hurt the same ankle in a January 25 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Casey doesn't foresee Johnson missing any game time with the team back in action on Tuesday when they travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers.

In 54 games this season, Johnson is averaging 10.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game in 28.4 minutes a night.
