Henderson is set to have surgery on his hip, putting his 2017-18 season in jeopardy, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports. Henderson dealt with left hip soreness for a large chunk of the 2016-17 season, though played through it often, missing just 10 games for the 76ers. As a low-profile free agent, his potential absence for the entirety of the upcoming season likely won't affect the NBA landscape. That said, he posted a respectable 9.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 23.2 minutes per game last season while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from beyond the arc. More details about his surgery and recovery time should emerge sooner than later.
Henderson was waived by the 76ers on Friday, Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Henderson, a 29-year-old eight-year NBA veteran, likely would have seen a heavily reduced role with the 76ers next season following the drafting of Markelle Fultz. The team also has a myriad of young guards and wings in general, giving them all the more reason to send Henderson out the door. Last season, he posted 9.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 23.2 minutes per game and could be a fair depth pickup for any number of teams.
Henderson (hip) will be available Saturday against the Bucks. Henderson has been dealing with a minor hip injury, but he's played in each of the Sixers' last five games and will be available in his usual capacity Saturday. The 29-year-old has played fewer than 20 minutes in four straight games, rendering him nearly useless in most daily contests.
Henderson (hip) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Nets, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Henderson has been listed on the injury report the last several games with the left hip soreness that's been bothering him all season, but he's seen between 18 and 22 minutes off the bench in each of the past three contests. It doesn't sound like he'll be in jeopardy of sitting Tuesday, but don't expect his minutes to expand much further beyond what he's received in those recent games.
Henderson (hip) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports. Henderson, who has been slowed off an on by the sore left hip all season, was also listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hawks and ultimately played 22 minutes. A similar fate likely awaits Friday, but the 76ers will check back in on his condition after pregame warmups before finalizing his status for the evening. Henderson was able to participate in portions of the 76ers' morning shootaround Friday.
