Spoelstra said with Dwyane Wade available to handle more of the playmaking with the second unit, it has allowed Johnson to play with more of an attack mindset, something that had been missing during the early stages of the season.
He isn’t shooting jumpers yet, and that is where Dwyane Wade’s introduction complicates life for the Heat.

McCarron was selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 draft. A shoulder injury he suffered before arriving in Cincinnati landed him on the Bengals’ non-football injury list for all but three games that year.
