SALT LAKE CITY — The injury bug continues to bite the Utah Jazz organization.

The team announced Tuesday that veteran guard Joe Johnson will miss at least two more weeks with tendon instability on his right wrist.

Johnson consulted with a hand specialist and is showing progress but will be re-evaluated in two weeks, per team officials.

No further updates were provided.

Johnson was spotted at Vivint Arena on Monday during the pregame warmups with a black splint on his arm ahead of the Minnesota Timberwolves loss.

He told the Deseret News that the rehabilitation process is coming along fine but he still can’t shoot or dribble with the injured wrist. He has missed the past seven games and averages 6.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists this season.

Utah (6-8) will also be without star center Rudy Gobert for at least another four weeks with a bruised knee.

The Jazz will face the New York Knicks at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the first of a four-game road trip.
