    Pistons' John Henson: Out 'about a week'

    John Henson (ankle) is expected to miss roughly a week due to a sprained ankle, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.Henson had started the last six games at center, but he'll likely cede the position to Thon Maker for the next two games. Looking ahead, the Detroit Pistons play Wednesday and Saturday of this week, so Henson figures to miss both of those contests before a potential return next Tuesday (March 17) against Orlando or next Friday (March 20) against Golden State.

    Pistons' John Henson: Decent line in 22 minutes

    John Henson produced 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 loss to the Kings.Henson drew the start alongside Christian Wood (foot) with Thon Maker (ankle) sidelined. Furthermore, Henson chipped in across every category except threes and has earned at least 20 minutes in three of the last four outings. Maker may be able to return for Wednesday's tilt against the Thunder, but Henson may be in line for another serving of 20-plus minutes regardless.

    Pistons' John Henson: Enters starting five

    John Henson is starting Tuesday's game at Denver, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.Henson delivered eight points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Trail Blazers, and he'll make his way into the starting five Tuesday. His 23 minutes in that game was his highest total since being acquired by the Detroit Pistons in early February, so he could be set for a similar workload against the Nuggets.

    Pistons' John Henson: Delivers quality line off bench

    John Henson finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 23 minutes Sunday in the Detroit Pistons' 107-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.Henson saw his most extensive playing time to date since being acquired by the Pistons earlier this month, but this quality showing off the bench won't necessarily earn him consistent run moving forward. As a 29-year-old whose contract is set to expire this summer, Henson may not be prioritized over Thon Maker. Though Maker -- an impending restricted free agent -- isn't necessarily part of the Pistons' long-term plans, he's at least six years younger and offers more theoretical upside at this stage of his career than Henson does.

    Pistons' John Henson: Protects rim in loss

    John Henson finished with seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and three blocks across 17 minutes off the bench Monday in the Detroit Pistons' 87-76 loss to the Hornets.There were few quality statistical lines on a night in which both teams shot worse than 40 percent from the field, but Henson's efficiency, rebounding and shot blocking were enough for him to pay off for those that streamed him. Henson could gradually eat into starting center Thon Maker's playing time, but until then, he'll remain more of an option in 14-team leagues or deeper while he's seeing under 20 minutes.

    Pistons' John Henson: Efficient in team debut

    John Henson played 18 minutes off the bench and contributed 12 points (6-6 FG), four rebounds, one assist and one steal Saturday in the Detroit Pistons' 95-92 loss to the Knicks.Making his team debut after coming over from the Cavaliers in Thursday's trade that sent Andre Drummond to Cleveland, Henson immediately seized a spot in Detroit's frontcourt rotation. Coach Dwane Casey rolled with Thon Maker as the starting center Saturday, but once he has a chance to settle into his new locale, Henson could unseat Maker for the top job or at least handle a larger share of minutes. For now, Henson's fantasy utility is probably best suited for deeper formats rather than 12-team leagues or shallower.

    Pistons' John Henson: Dealt to Pistons

    John Henson -- along with Brandon Knight and a 2023 second-round pick -- was traded Thursday to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Andre Drummond, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Henson carved out a backup role for the Cavaliers this season, averaging 5.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.1 blocks in 14.2 minutes. He'll now join a Pistons squad devoid of true starting talent, and it's possible he'll have the opportunity to grab the starting job. Henson will be competing with the likes of Christian Wood -- possibly the frontrunner -- and Thon Maker. Either way, it seems unlikely Henson is destined for a role of more than 25 minutes on a consistent basis.

    Cavaliers' John Henson: Double-double in starting role

    John Henson accumulated 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Thunder.Henson earned a season high minute total and matched season highs in scoring and boards. He filled in well as the starting center in place of Tristan Thompson (quadriceps). However, unless Cleveland moves Thompson at the deadline (and doesn't acquire a more appealing big man than Henson), there's a decent chance Henson returns to his usual reserve role for Sunday's matchup versus the Clippers.
