    John Henson (lower back soreness) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

    Henson is a deep-reserve as long as the frontcourt is mostly healthy. He is a blocks specialist only in deeper-leagues.

    John Henson (lower back soreness) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

    With Henson out again, Larry Nance Jr. will see extra minutes off the bench at both big spots. Henson is a blocks specialist who may surface in the second half of the season if the Cavs trade off some of their pieces.

    Larry Nance Jr. (left knee soreness) went scoreless in his return from a six-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Clippers, putting up just three rebounds, four assists and a steal in 19 minutes.

    Nance only attempted one shot tonight, a 3-pointer. This game wasn't close, so the Cavs didn't even need him to play up to his 24-minute limit. Nance isn't a very attractive pickup yet, but keep listening for Kevin Love trade news. On a positive note, John Henson broke out with 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in his 19 minutes.

  • Kevin Love

    Kevin Love (rest) is being listed as out for on the back-end of the Cavs back-to-back set against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Larry Nance Jr. is expected to make his return for this game and is likely to get the starting nod with Love out. John Henson should see extra minutes as a backup big man as well.

    John Henson put up seven points and 11 boards in a start for Tristan Thompson on Sunday.

    Henson shot 3-of-7 from the field and added three assists and one block to the stat sheet. He could be used as a DFS option when he is inserted into the starting lineup, but he can be left on the wire otherwise.

    John Henson logged 16 minutes on Friday night and picked up a whopping seven blocks.

    Henson added four rebounds and three assists, but who cares? Seven blocks in 16 minutes is crazy and if he was on any deep-league waiver wires before tonight, he certainly isn't anymore. The blocks are the full extent of Henson's fantasy value but they are the hardest stat to find on the wire and he's regularly getting minutes in the teens.

    John Henson (right hamstring strain) returned on Tuesday and played 14 minutes, providing two points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

    Henson hadn't played since the second game of the season, so he's got some rust to shake off. With the rest of the Cavs big men available, Henson will struggle to get many minutes. Remember that he can put up boards an blocks in a hurry if he does ever get back to 20 minutes per game.

    John Henson will return tonight as the Cavs face the Pistons.

    Henson played only one game with the Cavs this season before going down with a hamstring issue. He is expected to join a crowded frontcourt and his minutes will be monitored so it’s not certain that he enters the rotation immediately.

    John Henson (right hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's road game against the Pistons.

    Henson's eight minutes in the season opener are his only minutes in the last calendar year, and with all the Cavs big men options, he's unlikely to get much action anytime soon. He's shown excellent per-minute rebound and block numbers in the past, so his is worth watching in case some minutes clear up for him this season.

    John Henson (right hamstring) was able to practice on Sunday, and there's hope that he can play on Tuesday against the Pistons.

    Henson should be considered questionable for that one. He's appeared in just one game all season, though his two blocks in 8.3 minutes underscores his fantasy appeal. There's an elite blocks specialist here, but we'll need to see Henson playing and getting minutes before getting too worked up.

    John Henson (right hamstring) won't suit up on Friday.

    Henson is looking to make a return to the lineup after getting hurt in his only appearance of the season. He was listed questionable on Wednesday but ultimately ruled out, and this quick designation doesn't inspire optimism that the shot-blocker is close to 100 percent.

    Even though he was deemed questionable to face the Magic on Wednesday, John Henson has been ruled out for tonight’s game.

    Henson still hasn’t made his season debut and it’s likely that his return has no fantasy impact whatsoever. Tristan Thompson has been spectacular this year and Henson will likely have to battle Ante Zizic for the remaining backup minutes.

    John Henson (hamstring) is being listed as questionable to play against the Magic on Wednesday.

    The Cavs are hopeful of getting their big man back on the court. Kevin Love (questionable) is looking iffy to play, so Henson may find himself a few extra minutes if he is ready to go. Henson is a blocks specialist in deeper leagues.

    The Cavs are hopeful of getting big man John Henson (hamstring) back from a prolonged absence for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    With Kevin Love (back) missing Tuesday's practice, Henson may have an immediate role if he can get back on the court in time for Wednesday's game. Henson has always been able to rack up the blocks when given the playing time.

    Larry Nance (left thumb sprain) has been ruled out for Monday's road game against the Knicks.

    Nance recently saw a specialist for his thumb but there were little details revealed about the results. He will sit out tonight along with Kevin Love (back) which should open up a lot of minutes in the Cavaliers front court. Tristan Thompson and Cedi Osman will most likely get as much run as they can handle and Ante Zizic should be a part of the rotation and a sneaky DFS play with John Henson (hamstring) also still out.
