Jajuan Johnson did not play in the second half during Marquette's 81-75 win over St. John's on Saturday afternoon.

With 2:34 remaining in the first half, Johnson took a hard fall on a missed layup. According to Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski provided an update on Johnson's status during the postgame press conference.

"We don't think it's a concussion, but he said he had a headache," Wojciechowski said. "I just don't feel comfortable when guys start saying that to put them out there and risk his health, so we had to go without him. It's not been enough time for me to get an update from the doctors on him, but we'll monitor it. Hopefully it's nothing and he'll be able to bounce back."

The 6-foot-5 junior wing is averaging 7.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game in a key reserve role for the Golden Eagles.

Marquette, which has won back-to-back conference games, heads to Villanova for a pivotal matchup on Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. EST on FS1.
