Bucks sign G/F Xavier Henry.

It's just a camp deal for the former Laker, Pelican, and Grizzly. Henry has been injured for much of his career with his torn Achilles from back in 2014 as the biggest issue. The Bucks do need some depth on the wing, so a strong camp could help him get on the roster.

Xavier Henry has signed a training camp deal with the Bucks, according to Shams Charania.

Henry had previously worked out with the Lakers, but will instead join the Bucks for training camp. The 25-year-old likely saw more opportunity to make the roster in Milwaukee and will now look to hook on as a bench player. Even if he makes the Bucks final roster, Henry won't have any fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues.

Xavier Henry took part in the Lakers free agent minicamp on Wednesday.

The Lakers waived Henry back in 2014, but the 25-year-old got another shot from the team on Wednesday. "I’ve been doing a lot of workouts this summer with a lot of different teams and getting feedback and seeing how I feel," he said. "I’ve been feeling really good. I’m feeling blessed that I can even play basketball again." While Henry could get a training camp invite, he isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment.

Warriors waive Xavier Henry, Chris Babb, Jarrell Eddie and Chris Udofia.

None of these guys were going to make the team and they could wind up in the D-League if they clear waivers. Henry may have a tough time getting back into the NBA.

Warriors sign G/F Xavier Henry.

Injuries have really set Henry back. He has suffered an Achilles tear and a number of knee injuries.

The Lakers have waived Xavier Henry.

Henry has really struggled with injuries throughout his career, and he was only able to get through nine games this season before going down with a season-ending Achillies injury. Given his constant struggles with health, it could be difficult for him to find another NBA contract.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 05:21:00 PM

Xavier Henry underwent surgery to repair his torn left Achillies on Tuesday morning, and he will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

Henry will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but after injuries held him to just 43 games last season, and a mere nine this year, he may have a tough time landing his next deal. Henry's 9.5 minutes per game will be distributed to Jordan Clarkson and Wayne Ellington, but neither guy can be considered an attractive option in standard leagues while Kobe Bryant is healthy.

Xavier Henry has suffered a torn left Achilles and will miss the rest of the season.

He just can't catch a break and it's become really easy to root for him. Henry had a knee injury keep him out for much of last season and also tore ligaments in his wrist at the end of the season. His days with the Lakers are likely over and he may have a tough time catching on with any NBA team next season. Hopefully, he proves everyone wrong.

Xavier Henry may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and is getting an MRI.

This is just not right for Henry. He's had multiple severe knee injuries and just can't stay on the court. Hopefully the MRI comes back negative, but the Lakers haven't had the best luck with MRIs in the past two seasons. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson may get more run without Henry, but neither are fantasy options.

Lakers coach Byron Scott isn't sure that Xavier Henry will regain his former explosive athleticism following right knee surgery.

"I loved his athleticism and the fact that he could attack the basket," Scott said. "His relentlessness to attack the basket contributed to the injuries as well." Henry said that he can already move "better and quicker" at this stage in his recovery, and he doesn't plan to change his game, but fantasy owners can watch his development from afar -- he's averaging under 10 minutes per game and recently had a stint in the D-League.

Xavier Henry (knee) had three points, one rebound and one steal off the bench on Tuesday, playing 18 minutes in the Lakers' season opener.

L.A. lost by 18 points in a blowout but Henry's availability was an encouraging footnote, especially after prized rookie Julius Randle left with an apparent broken leg in the second half. There's too much competition for minutes in L.A.'s wing rotation to consider Henry in average fantasy leagues, especially given his voluminous injury problems last season.

Xavier Henry (knee) will be available to play in Tuesday's regular-season opener vs. the Rockets.

Henry did not play a single preseason game, so it's difficult to see him suddenly jumping into the rotation. However, the Lakers are very thin on the wings right now, so it's possible he sees some minutes out of necessity. If he does play, his minutes will likely be very limited, and he's extremely unlikely to put up a useable stat line for owners in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.

Xavier Henry (knee) shot around on Sunday and he's expected to resume running on Monday.

The Lakers' season opens on Tuesday and it's hard to imagine Henry jumping straight into the rotation, but for now he's listed as questionable. L.A. is very short-handed, particularly on the wings, but Henry's health and backup role are sufficient reasons to avoid him.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 04:39:00 PM

Xavier Henry (knee) is going to New York to get a second opinion on his right knee, and then will head to Germany for the Regenokine treatment.

He is expected to meet back up with the Lakers on Oct. 24, as he was excused from all team activities until then. The Lakers are hoping that he will ready for the season opener but it is looking less and less likely. Given his injury history and the depth of LA's wing positions, Henry is not a fantasy option in almost any league.
