Allen Crabbe (right knee arthroscopy) is unlikely to play until mid-to-late-November, according to coach Lloyd Pierce.
Peirce will see how Crabbe performs once he starts practicing before integrating him into games. He underwent surgery in April and has yet to be completely recovered. He will likely see a limited role and can be left undrafted.

John Henson (right groin strain) is unlikely to play in the season opener on Wednesday.
Henson has not been able to practice fully and missed every preseason game. Once healthy, Henson is expected to back up Tristan Thompson at center. It's worth noting that Henson is also dealing with an ankle injury as well, so this may be more than just a one game absence.
