Cavaliers' John Henson: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (hamstring) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Heat.

After straining his right hamstring in his season debut Oct. 26 against the Pacers, Henson was handed an estimated 2-to-4-week recovery timeline. The short end of that timetable has arrived, but the Cavaliers haven't provided any indication the center is nearing a return to the court. A firm target date for Henson to resume playing likely won't arrive until he's able to take part in full-court, full-contact practices.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Out 2-4 weeks with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson suffered a right hamstring strain and will be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks.

Henson saw his first game action in nearly a year Saturday and had three points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in eight minutes. The 28-year-old first was recovering from wrist surgery last November but was more recently sidelined by a groin strain, so the only good news is that he didn't aggravate one of those injuries. Henson's initial recovery timeline could have him returning sometime in mid-November.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Ready to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (ankle) indicated he'll play Saturday against the Pacers, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Henson was a game-time decision but delivered a thumbs-up after going through pre-game warmups. The 28-year-old is set to make his debut with the Cavaliers after being acquired by the team last December and missing the rest of the season recovering from wrist surgery.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Remains game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (ankle) will go through warmups and be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Henson dealt with a groin injury during the preseason but the right ankle sprain is what has kept him from action for the first week of the regular season. Coach John Beilein said the 28-year-old "went live" in Friday's practice, so even if he isn't quite ready to play Saturday his return appears to be on the horizon.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Questionable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Coach John Beilein said that Henson "went live" in Friday's practice, so it looks like the big man may be close to making a return to in-game action. Expect another update on Henson's health to come after shootaround Saturday morning.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson won't play in Wednesday's season opener against the Magic due to a right ankle sprain.

Henson suffered a groin injury midway through the preseason, but it's a different issue that has prevented him from resuming practice at full speed. Consider him day-to-day heading into Saturday's home opener versus Indiana.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Doubtful for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (groin) took part in some "half-court things" during Tuesday's practice but isn't expected to be available for Wednesday's season opener against Orlando, Spencer Davies of BBall Insiders reports.

Henson has been limited due to a groin injury, though the team hasn't officially ruled him out just yet, with head coach John Beilein stating he'll see how Henson fares during Wednesday's shootaround.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Limited in practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (groin) was a limited participant in practice Monday, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Henson been battling a couple of injuries during the preseason with the latest being a groin strain. Henson's status for the team's season opener against the Magic primarily hangs on whether he can fully participate in practice Tuesday. If not, he'll likely be sidelined.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (groin) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Boston, Brandon Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Henson continues to struggle through a groin strain and will miss Tuesday's game against Boston. He'll look to make his return next Wednesday in the season opener against the Magic.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson will not play in Monday's preseason game against San Lorenzo due to a strained right groin, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Just last week, Henson was cleared for full activity after a lengthy recovery from wrist surgery, but he'll now be shelved with a lower-body issue. Consider Henson day-to-day for the time being as the Cavs look ahead to Friday's exhibition matchup in Detroit.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Back on the floor Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (wrist) went through a full practice Tuesday, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Henson hadn't seen the floor since mid-November of last season, when he went down with a torn ligament in his left wrist. The injury prevented the big man from ever suiting up for the Cavs following a trade from Milwaukee, but he's expected to be in the mix at both center and power forward this season. However, the North Carolina product will have to navigate a crowded depth chart that features Tristan Thompson, Larry Nance, Ante Zizic and Kevin Love.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Out for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Progresses to shooting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Nearing rehab stage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson (wrist) is set to have his cast removed Tuesday, Chris Fedor of 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.

Cavaliers' John Henson: Traded to Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bucks' John Henson: Surgery planned for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bucks' John Henson: Will undergo wrist surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson will require wrist surgery and is out for a minimum of 12 weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

It's an unfortunate injury for the former UNC standout who has been transforming his game this year, especially beyond the three-point arc. In his absence, center Thon Maker may see more minutes than usual.

Bucks' John Henson: Grabs 12 boards in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson had nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 18 minutes during Friday's 125-95 win over the Timberwolves.

Henson has extended his range to the corner three, where he sometimes camps out to facilitate offensive floor spacing. In fact, through five games he has made five-of-11 attempts from deep, this after sinking one-of-13 through his first six seasons combined. Moreover, despite operating in a reduced role compared to last year (thanks to the offseason additions of Brook Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova), Henson is hauling in a career-high 8.4 boards per game.

Bucks' John Henson: Blocks two shots Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henson had nine points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 14 minutes during Sunday's 125-107 preseason victory over the Timberwolves.

Henson saw some additional run with both Thon Maker (knee) and Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring) on the sidelines. He did what he does, recording a pair of blocks to go with nine points. Henson is going to struggle to be an every night part of the rotation this season and was even outplayed by Christian Wood in this one despite the additional playing time. Henson is not worth a look in basically any league.

April 28, 2018 01:49 PM
Bucks' John Henson: Out for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
