i think nick johnson is the slowest healer in the history of healing. seriously when he's hurt, it's take him FOREVER to get back in the lineup.

1B Johnson may be out until June

VIERA, Fla. (AP) -- Washington Nationals first baseman Nick Johnson, whose 2006 season ended with a broken right leg, still isn't sure when he'll be able to play again.

Johnson arrived at spring training Friday. Asked what he thought the best-case scenario is for his return, Johnson said it might be June.

"Everything's so weak in my right leg -- my hip, my quad, everything," he said.

Johnson said his leg gets sore when he walks and that he's not yet able to jog.

A team doctor is to examine X-rays Monday, general manager Jim Bowden said.

"Right now, there is not enough information or data to put a timetable on it," Bowden said.

Johnson was hurt Sept. 23 in a gruesome collision with right fielder Austin Kearns while going after a ball in a game against the New York Mets. A titanium rod and screws were inserted during a two-hour operation.

Johnson had two more operations, to remove the screws and clean up scar tissue.

In 2006, Johnson set career highs with a .290 batting average, 46 doubles, 23 homers, 77 RBIs, 110 walks and 147 games played. ... -johnson&p
