Henson finished with 18 points (6-12 FG, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 25 minutes during the Bucks' 109-108 overtime win against the 76ers on Sunday. Henson was allowed to play a larger role with Greg Monroe receiving the night off to rest on Sunday. Miles Plumlee started and earned three more minutes than Henson, but Plumlee produced a much more modest line of eight points, six rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block. If Monroe returns to action on Monday versus the Magic, Henson will likely see fewer minutes. However, coach Jason Kidd has been known to experiment quite a bit, and the Bucks have long been eliminated from playoff contention. As a result, it's probably best to check who is active and starting prior to tipoff before settling on any of Milwaukee's big men.
Henson had five points (2-6 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three blocks, one assist, and one steal across 17 minutes during the Bucks' 124-109 loss to the Celtics on Friday. Henson saw 16 minutes combined over the previous two matchups, so his return to double-digit minutes was a welcome sight for fantasy owners. With that being said, considering he played 20 minutes or more in five of the last six contest to end March, April has been a big disappointment overall (1.8 points, two rebounds, one assist, and one block in 11 minutes per contest). It's possible Henson will get more burn over the final three games of the season, but without a sharp increase in playing time he will have a hard time matching his March averages of 9.5 points, four rebounds, and 2.4 blocks in 19 minutes.
Henson collected 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks and a steal over 25 minutes in Saturday's 115-91 loss to the Hornets. The four-year veteran continued his late-season resurgence, tallying double-digit scoring for the third straight contest. Henson has received 20 minutes or more in four of the last five games as well, and his solid play figures to garner him similar opportunity over the final stretch of the season. He's averaging a solid 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 2.2 blocks and 0.4 steals over his last five outings.
Henson scored 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Hawks. Greg Monroe was having an off night, which gave Henson enough minutes to produce his first double-double since late November. He seems to be recovered from the back issue that cost him 20 games and the entire month of February, averaging 8.6 points, 3.6 boards and 2.4 blocks in 20.0 minutes over the last five games, but his court time is too inconsistent to make Henson a reliable fantasy asset even if you are desperate for those blocks.
Henson (back) had four points (2-3 FG), one rebound, and one steal in six minutes during the Bucks' 107-89 loss to the Raptors on Tuesday. Having been out since Jan. 26 with back issues, Henson didn't see much time on Tuesday. However, it's likely that the Bucks are simply easing him into things. Though Greg Monroe's minutes may be safe, Miles Plumlee could lose out on some of his playing time going forward to accommodate Henson's return.
