John Henson has been ruled out for Game 6 on Thursday with back soreness as the Bucks face elimination vs. the Celtics.
Henson was expected to miss this game as his status was doubtful up until now. This means we should see a lot more Thon Maker off the bench with Tyler Zeller in the starting lineup. Zeller has only logged 13.3 mpg in three games as the starting center while Maker has gotten 26.0 mpg in the last three off the bench. Maker has been inconsistent and Zeller has not done much himself. It would not be wrong to say Milwaukee misses Henson, but that says a lot more about Milwaukee's front court depth than Henson himself.
