To my knowledge joists do not currently have a long lead time. As
suggested, detailing often is the bottleneck, but even so I don't think
lead times are generally bad right now. If your contractor is having
trouble, s/he may need to find a new supplier. There are several good
ones around, if you're having trouble finding one email me privately and
I'll give you a recommendation.
