Henson (wrist) won't play in Tuesday's season finale against the Hornets. Henson was able to resume shooting drills at the beginning of March, but he never made a return to full-contact, full-court practice before the end of the season. By the time the 2019-20 season begins, Henson will be 11 months removed from left wrist surgery, so he should be at full health prior to the start of training camp. He'll be entering the final season of the four-year, $48 million extension he inked with Milwaukee in October 2015.
Henson (wrist) has progressed to shooting a basketball, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports. Henson seems to be doing well in his rehab, and the Cavaliers are expressing optimism that he'll be back soon to make his debut with the team. Before suffering his hand injury, he had shown new range with the Bucks, hitting nearly one three-pointer per game at 35.5 percent.
Henson (wrist) is set to have his cast removed Tuesday, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports. Henson underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist in late November, and is finally about to shed the cast. The 28-year-old was traded from the Bucks to the Cavaliers in early December, and could potentially return by the end of the month going by his original recovery timetable. An update and current timetable should become available once Henson's rehab program gets under way.
Henson (wrist), along with Matthew Dellavedova and a pair of draft picks, was traded to the Cavaliers on Friday in exchange for George Hill and Sam Dekker, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. This is essentially a salary dump for the Bucks, as Henson never materialized into the player Milwaukee thought he would be when the team team drafted him in the first round of the 2012 draft. It's unclear what Henson's role will be in Cleveland, however, as he just underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist and is expected to be out for another 11 weeks. Once healthy, Henson will likely still be behind both Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance in the frontcourt pecking order.
Henson will undergo surgery Tuesday in New York to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Assuming the procedure goes as planned, Henson is estimated to require 12 weeks to make a full recovery. That puts the reserve center on track for a return around the All-Star break, giving Thon Maker an extended opportunity to work as the top backup to Brook Lopez.
