Wake Forest Demon Deacon guard Torry Johnson is questionable for Tuesday’s ACC Tournament first round matchup with the Pittsburgh Panthers with a knee injury. Johnson sat out the three previous games with a bruised right knee.

In an article that appeared on the Winston-Salem Journal website, Johnson said it’s painful to move but wants to get back on the court since this is his senior season. Johnson appeared in 28 games this season and is averaging 5.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 24.7 minutes per game.

Wake Forest comes in as the 12 seed and is a one-point underdog to No. 13 seed Pittsburgh at DraftKings Sportsbook. On Jan. 4, Wake Forest beat the Panthers 69-65 on the road, and Johnson played 25 minutes and scored 12 points off the bench. Pittsburgh is 1-6 against the spread in its last seven games, and Wake Forest finished out the season 2-4 against the number.
