    Coach John Beilein said that John Henson (right groin strain) participated in some 'half-court things' on Tuesday and didn't completely rule the big man out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    It's a vague assessment of where Henson is, but he is at least moving in the right direction. Henson will back up Tristan Thompson at C when he returns.

    John Henson (right groin strain) returns to practice Monday, but remained limited per Cavs head coach John Beilein.

    Tomorrow it will be decided if Henson is ready for the Cavs' season opener on Wednesday in Orlando. His opponent for the back-up center minutes, Ante Zizic, remains absent with left foot soreness.

    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.

    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs are have ruled Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness), John Henson (right groin strain) and Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) as out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the trio of big men sitting out, it could again be a lot of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. It's worth noting that Jarell Martin is starting at C for the Cavs tonight.

    John Henson popped up on the injury report with a groin strain and will miss Friday's game against the Pistons.

    This likely isn't that serious for Henson. More importantly, Henson isn't that serious in a majority of leagues. He may be a deep league blocks specialist but he'll be a backup even on a weak Cavaliers team.

    John Henson practiced for the first time since Nov. 14th, 2018 for the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Henson is expected to compete with Tristan Thompson for backup minutes behind Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Love this season. Henson has value in deep leagues for his blocks but can otherwise be ignored for now.

    In a recent Q & A on Cleveland.com, beat writer Chris Fedor said that the Cavs are "excited" to have a healthy John Henson.

    Henson underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist last November and missed the rest of the season. He was limited to 14 games with Milwaukee before getting traded to the Cavs, averaging 5.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 13.4 minutes per game. The Cavs do have a crowded rotation at center with Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. all candidates to see minutes, but Henson gives them an element of rim protection and could factor in. He's a name to remember for deep-league owners hunting blocks.

    John Henson (left wrist surgery) was unable to play for the Cavs this season.

    The Bucks were expecting Henson to return from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist, but after he was traded to the go-nowhere Cavs his fate was pretty much sealed. The big man played in only 14 games this season and averaged 5.1 rebounds, 0.8 blocks and a career-high 0.8 3-pointers per game in just 13.4 mpg, though he also went a career-worst .463 from the field. The limited action sticks Henson with top-400 total value, but he was a top-220 per-game player. He’s a specialist to keep in mind in deep leagues next year.

    John Henson underwent a successful surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist on Tuesday and the Bucks are optimistic that they will have him back before the playoffs.

    No medical update has been provided by the team yet but this is a safe prediction and Henson should be cut in all redraft leagues. The Bucks will continue to rely on Brook Lopez and Thon Maker while deeper league managers should keep an eye on Christian Wood.

    John Henson underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist on Tuesday.

    The Bucks did not provide an official update regarding the veteran center's return timetable but he could reasonably be out until the All-Star break or beyond as he goes through the healing process. Thon Maker has been a part of the rotation after Henson went down but he has been extremely inconsistent and cannot be trusted in regular leagues.

    John Henson will undergo left wrist surgery on Tuesday according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

    Henson is looking at 12 weeks off and Thon Maker will be an unproductive fantasy asset in the backup role he just inherited.

    John Henson will miss at least 12 weeks with a torn ligament in his left wrist as of Friday's update.

    It's time for Thon Maker, people. This will put Henson out until at least mid-February, so we could see an unsightly amount of Maker and a Bucks team that might struggle against bigger squads. Keep an eye on Maker but there probably isn't much there for now.

    Per a report on Friday, John Henson will undergo wrist surgery and is out indefinitely.

    This is a bigger blow to the Bucks rotation and center depth more than it is for fantasy purposes. Henson has been a useful fantasy option in the past because of his shot-blocking prowess. With Brook Lopez playing well, Henson just hadn't gotten the run to be successful (13.5 minutes per game). Ersan Ilyasova and Thon Maker are probably the beneficiaries for now.

    John Henson came off the bench for 11 minutes on Saturday, turning in eight points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers.

    Henson was originally questionable for this one because of some left wrist soreness. He didn't play much but did end up posting a strange set of stats. We wouldn't bet on Henson's best counting categories being assists and 3-pointers again any time soon.
