Pistons' John Henson: Out 'about a week'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Pistons in early February, so he could be set for a similar workload against the Nuggets.

Pistons' John Henson: Delivers quality line off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson played 18 minutes off the bench and contributed 12 points (6-6 FG), four rebounds, one assist and one steal Saturday in the 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: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (not injury related) is available to make his Pistons debut Saturday against the Knicks, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Henson was in the deal that sent Andre Drummond to Cleveland. It's unclear what sort of role Henson will have. He'll be fighting for minutes with Christian Wood and Thon Maker.

Pistons' John Henson: Not playing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (not injury related) will not make his Pistons debut Friday against the Thunder, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Henson isn't yet with the team. It's unclear if he'll be available Saturday against the Knicks.

Pistons' John Henson: Dealt to Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson -- along with Brandon Knight and a 2023 second-round pick -- was traded Thursday to the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson will start Wednesday against the Thunder, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Henson will pick up his second start of the season Wednesday with Tristan Thompson (quad) unavailable. In his only other start this season, Henson tallied seven points, 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 23 minutes. Larry Nance will come off the bench behind Henson.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Hands out three dimes in 13 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson had three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three assists and one rebound in 13 minutes during Thursday's 124-112 loss to the Wizards.

Henson rejoined the rotation after sitting out the last two games with a back injury. However, he saw the ninth-most minutes for the Cavaliers and has earned at least 20 minutes just once through 22 appearances this season.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (back) will play in Thursday's contest against Washington, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Henson has missed the last two matchups due to an ailing back injury, but nonetheless, the center will return to the floor in time for Thursday's game. Henson is currently averaging just 4.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in 21 outings with the Cavaliers this season.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Expected back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (back) is probable for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

Henson is trending towards a return Thursday after missing the past two games due to a sore back. Look for his status to clear up closer to tip-off. The big man is averaging 7.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists across six games this month (15.5 minutes per game).

Cavaliers' John Henson: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (back) will sit out Monday against the Knicks, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Henson will miss a second straight game with a sore back after he was initially deemed questionable. With Ante Zizic (illness) set to miss his fifth straight game, expect Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance to again handle most of the center duties.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (back) is considered questionable Monday against the Knicks.

A sore back kept Henson out of Saturday's game, but the hope is that he'll be cleared to return Monday. The Cavs have already ruled Ante Zizic out for the game.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Out with back soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson is out for Saturday's matchup against the Bulls due to lower back soreness.

Henson will miss his fourth game since December. In his absence, Larry Nance could see extra minutes at center.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Grabs 11 boards in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson started at center and tallied seven points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 118-103 loss to Minnesota.

Henson moved up to the top unit after Tristan Thompson (illness) was a late scratch. After struggling with injuries for much of the past season and a half, Henson is likely just happy to be healthy again, but his fantasy upside will be muted when Thompson returns. In his 17 games off the bench this season, Henson is averaging just 4.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 blocks in 12.6 minutes.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Blocks three shots Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson totaled six points, four rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes during Monday's 121-118 victory over Atlanta.

Henson provided plenty of defensive energy off the bench, racking up another three blocks. The Cavaliers were without Larry Nance Jr. (knee) and that opened up additional playing time for the veteran. Henson provides nothing but blocks but has the ability to contribute in limited minutes. If you need a short-term rim protector, Henson could be worth streaming in.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Fills it up in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson had two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals in 16 minutes during Monday's 133-113 loss to the Raptors.

Henson finished with season highs in rebounding, dimes and minutes while matching his season high in steals. He has earned at least 13 minutes in seven of eight December appearances, but Henson is best reserved for use in deeper formats unless injuries or trades open up a more plentiful role for the 28-year-old big man.
