This was in yesterday's Washington Post - doesn't say much about his status:

"1B Nick Johnson returned to Washington yesterday after a morning appointment with hip specialist Bryan Kelly in New York. General Manager Jim Bowden said the evaluation did not reveal anything new and that Johnson would undergo a nerve study and a MRI exam on his right hip during the all-star break. Johnson has continued to have soreness in the hip from a fractured right leg that has kept him on the disabled list all season."

from talentedmrroto.com/PlayerNews.aspx?channel=mlb
What happened: National's 1B Nick Johnson has apparently suffered a setback in his rehab from a broken leg and is seeking advice from doctors on the cause of pain in his hip.

What it means: Word from the Nats is that Johnson may not return at all this season. At best he may play some in September if he doesn't require any procedures to relieve his pain. Those of you hanging on to Johnson in the hopes of some second half help should let him go and seek help elsewhere.

Whoa, not so fast. This from Yahoo today:
Jul 12 After a number of tests on his right hip Wednesday, Johnson was diagnosed with a slight case of bursitis and given a cortisone injection, the Nationals web site reports.

Recommendation: This was probably the best result Johnson could have gotten. "Hopefully, this little shot can calm whatever it is in there," Johnson said. "Everything looked good. There is no damage. Nothing out of the ordinary." He likely won't resume baseball activities until next week, however.

That would be my estimation. Optimistically, could be mid-August, I suppose.

Rotowire:
Aug 22 Johnson had surgery Tuesday to remove the rod and screw from his right leg, the Washington Post reports.

Recommendation: It will be two months before he'll even be able to run again. Johnson is expected to be ready for spring training next season, but given his troubled injury history you shouldn't count on that timetable being accurate.


KFFL:
Aug 21 Barry Svrluga, of the Washington Post, reports Washington Nationals 1B Nick Johnson (hip) underwent hip surgery Tuesday, Aug. 21. Johnson will be limited to only light work for the next couple months.
