    John Henson did his usual thing in 2019-20, swatting 1.1 shots per game and offering up deep-league specialist appeal.

    Henson finished just inside the top-250 as a per-game player, and the blocks were helpful considering he only played 15.0 mpg across his 40 games. He actually averaged 17.1 minutes in 11 games with the Pistons but saw his blocks decline to 0.9 per contest, though more minutes is always better for someone of Henson's stat set. Deep-league GMs can consider him a cheap source of blocks going forward, and this was a nice bounce-back year after he was limited to 14 games in 2018-19.

    As expected, John Henson will sit out of Wednesday's contest vs. the Sixers as he continues to deal with a sprained left ankle.

    Head coach Dwane Casey told the media on Tuesday that he expects Henson to miss some time with his most recent injury. Henson has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and has lost fantasy relevance this season with his most recent injury. Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya should continue to see more minutes while Henson is sidelined. Christian Wood will continue to be the stud in the Pistons' frontcourt moving forward.

    Coach Dwane Casey said that John Henson (left ankle sprain) will "miss some time" after being forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Knicks early.

    Henson has seen a steady role of late, but he becomes a cut candidate without a concrete timetable. In his absence, Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya should once again see added opportunities in the frontcourt.

    John Henson suffered a left ankle sprain against the Knicks on Sunday and was forced to exit in the fourth quarter.

    He was experiencing some intense pain after the injury, and it would not be surprising to see him miss some time. If Henson is out that will give Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya added value. Henson was just a deep league option for traditional big man stats, feel free to cut him loose if you need a reliably healthy body.

    John Henson put up 10 points with five boards and two steals in a loss to the Kings on Sunday.

    Henson shot 5-of-8 from the field and added three assists, two steals and one block to the box score. He is a blocks and field goal percentage specialist for deeper leagues.

    John Henson picked up four fouls in just 19 minutes of Friday's start against the Suns, but he did manage seven points, four rebounds, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Henson's cracking late-round value since getting traded to Detroit, thanks entirely to solid efficiency and blocks. He's averaging 1.1 swats in just 14.6 mpg on the year and should be able to consistently provide specialist appeal.

    John Henson started for the Pistons on Tuesday but was not able to put up a noteworthy performance with just four points (2-of-4 shooting), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

    Henson had been making some noise off the bench prior to this quiet night, so it's understandably a bit disappointing. Expect the Pistons to do a bit more tinkering as the season draws to a close. Thon Maker moved to the bench and suffered a big loss in value with just two points, three rebounds and one steal in six minutes.

    Markieff Morris (illness) will be available for Monday's game.

    Morris had been considered probable, so this was expected after he missed over a week. It will be interesting to see how he fits in with newcomer John Henson.

    John Henson was a perfect 6-for-6 from the field for 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes in his debut for the Pistons on Saturday.

    Henson has a chance to make some noise with the Pistons, but will likely end up being more of a blocks-boards streamer in standard leagues on most nights. Keep an eye on him.

    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (flu) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

    Morris will miss his third straight game with an illness and fifth straight overall. We should continue to see a healthy dose of Christian Wood and Thon Maker. Newly acquired John Henson is also available for this game so he might be someone to monitor to see how he fits into the rotation.

    John Henson has been traded to the Pistons along with Brandon Knight and a second round pick according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

    It's pretty shocking that a contending team couldn't top this offer from the Cavs for the league's best rebounder. Nevertheless, Henson joins a front court where he will compete with Christian Wood, Thon Maker, Markieff Morris and Sekou Doumbouya for minutes. Wood is the biggest winner in this deal, while Henson could emerge as a blocks specialist.

    John Henson ended Wednesday's contest with 10 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

    Henson wasn't the only PF to record a double-double in this contest. Larry Nance Jr. came off the bench and finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a steal. Despite Henson getting the start, Nance is the player that you want to own in this duo.

    The Knicks and the Cavs engaged in trade talks with John Henson included as part of a deal, but dialogue has since cooled, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    No further details have appeared and it seems that the Cavs are shopping Henson’s expiring deal. He hasn’t been fantasy-relevant this year and his value is unlikely to change even if he gets moved.

    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.
