Johnson (Achilles) was waived by the Pistons on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Johnson signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Pistons in September, appearing in four preseason games with Detroit and averaging 3.8 points and 2.0 rebounds across 14.8 minutes. The Pistons opted to go with a younger player in Christian Wood for their final roster spot. Johnson is dealing with an Achilles injury and will likely have to prove his health before getting an opportunity elsewhere. Oct 21 3:37 pm (EST)
