Henson (back) is out for Saturday's Game 7 against Boston, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. As expected, Henson will not be able to take the floor in what will be the deciding game of the series. Thon Maker drew the start during Game 6, which very well may be the case once more.
Henson (back) is out for Thursday's Game 6 against the Celtics, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. As expected, Henson will miss a fourth straight game while recovering from a sore back. Tyler Zeller is likely to draw another start, though Thon Maker has been the main beneficiary at the position over the past three games. Jabari Parker has also seen an uptick in workload, averaging 16.7 points across 29.0 minutes while Henson has been on the shelf.
Henson (back) is listed as doubtful in the game notes for Game 6 against the Celtics on Thursday. Henson has missed three straight games due to a sore back and it appears the discomfort has yet to subside, so he'll miss yet another contest Thursday if all goes as expected. That said, game notes can be a bit unreliable at times, so it will be worth it to monitor his status up through pregame warmups to make sure he's sidelined. Tyler Zeller (10 minutes) started in Henson's place again during Game 5, though it was Thon Maker (23 minutes) and Jabari Parker (32 minutes) who appeared to benefit the most in terms of playing time.
Henson (back) is out for Tuesday's Game 5 against Boston, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. Henson continues to battle back soreness, keeping him out for a third game in a row. In his stead, Tyler Zeller will likely continue starting at center. He's averaged 3.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 blocks, 1.0 steal and 1.0 assist in 15.0 minutes over the past two games. Thon Maker has been a bigger contributor off the pine, averaging 11.0 points, 5.0 blocks and 3.5 rebounds in 27.5 minutes over the past two contests.
Henson (back) is out for Sunday's Game 4 against the Celtics, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. As expected, Henson will miss a second straight game while nursing back soreness. As a result, Tyler Zeller will likely draw the start again. However, it was Thon Maker who pulled through during Game 3, having arguably the best outing of his career.
