of Ridiculous Upside reports
that the Portland Trail Blazers are set to take a second look at lengthy big man Chris Johnson...
Sources close to the situation have informed Ridiculous Upside that the team is expected to call-up Chris Johnson for the remainder of the season. (Teammate Mike Anderson seemed to confirm the news in a tweet on Saturday afternoon)
Portland's roster stood at 14 players after the team signed Jarron Collins to a second 10-day contract on Friday
The Blazers signed Johnson to a 10-day contract on Jan. 24
but elected not to give him a second 10-day contract in February
. Johnson was also signed by the Celtics to a 10-day contract but wasn't retained because the Celtics needed the roster spot for their waiver wire signings.
Johnson averaged 2 points and 2 rebounds in 2 appearances with the Blazers.
