It looks like Phoenix Suns sixth man Cam Johnson is back to full health, if anyone was still curious.
In the first half of the Suns’ 2022 NBA Playoffs opener, Johnson delivered a one-handed poster slam on a lob from forward Torrey Craig.

Johnson left no questions about his health or the quad injury that sidelined him for 13 games down the stretch of the season.
He played the Suns’ final six games of the regular season, but didn’t quite look himself, only averaging 8.6 points per game in his return.
In his first seven minutes of action in the series, Johnson scored 5 points for Phoenix.
He did find himself in some foul trouble picking up two early personals.
The Suns hold a 53-34 lead over the Pelicans after the first half from Footprint Center.
