John Henson (thumb) is expected to play around 20 minutes on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Coach Jason Kidd is a lot more transparent these days, so this a nice heads up for fantasy owners. Spencer Hawes is resting and may be out of the rotation for good anyways, while Thon Maker will likely play a handful of minutes in the first unit with Greg Monroe playing anywhere from 18-25 minutes off the bench based on recent games.
Apr 10 - 6:36 PM

John Henson (thumb) is available to play on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Thon Maker has been getting a little bit more burn in the first unit lately, so Henson may not be a part of the rotation. He's safe to leave on the wire in most formats until we see what role he has in his first game back.
Apr 10 - 12:17 PM

John Henson (thumb) remains out for Saturday against the Hornets.

He was targeting a return on Apr. 10 and he may hit it after going through some contact in practice recently. Thon Maker will continue to start, but he's a very dicey fantasy option.
Apr 8 - 5:53 PM

John Henson (thumb) had a workout on Thursday and will be re-evaulated in the near future.

He is targeting Apr. 10 against the Hornets, so it's not a lock he's back this regular season. Due to this injury, Henson may not get a $250K bonus for playing in 60 games -- he's played in 56 games thus far. Thon Maker has had some bright spots lately, but he's not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Apr 6 - 7:36 PM

John Henson (thumb) said he's hoping to return on Apr. 10 vs. the Hornets.

This means we can rule him out for Thursday's game vs. the Pacers and Saturday's game vs. the 76ers. If Henson returns on Apr. 10, that means he would be available for the final two games of the regular season. With Thon Maker playing better and Greg Monroe healthy, Henson can be left on the wire.
Apr 6 - 9:32 AM

John Henson (thumb) is unlikely to play on Thursday against the Pacers.

He's missed the last eight games, but he should be back in the regular season. It's been Thon Maker benefiting the most, but he's only worth a looking deeper leagues.
Apr 5 - 4:09 PM

John Henson (thumb) will not play Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

After Tuesday, Henson will have spent eight straight games on the sidelines, and it's looking like he'll miss even more than that given he's not even traveling with the team for their three-game road trip. He's not worth owning anywhere.
Apr 3 - 2:59 PM

John Henson (sprained left thumb) was not on the active roster for Sunday's game.

Henson was ruled out for approximately one week last Sunday, but we've heard nothing about an imminent return. Thon Maker, Spencer Hawes and Greg Monroe continue to divvy up his minutes.
Apr 2 - 7:55 PM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) is expected to be sidelined for approximately a week.

Henson already missed two straight games after injuring his thumb in Portland on Tuesday night. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. Greg Monroe and Spencer Hawes will see some additional minutes with Henson sidelined.
Mar 25 - 12:11 PM

John Henson (thumb) will not play against the Hawks on Friday.

It'll be his second game out of the lineup. Spencer Hawes was in the rotation for the last game and scored 10 points, so he should be looking at a similar role. Henson was expected to be re-evaluated today, but there's no update on his status going forward. Besides Greg Monroe as a low-end guy, this is a situation to avoid in most leagues.
Mar 24 - 6:27 PM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) will be re-evaluated when the Bucks return to Milwaukee.

Henson got hurt in Portland and he sat out Wednesday's game. Owners should consider him questionable to play vs. the visiting Hawks on Friday -- if he can't suit up, Spencer Hawes looks like the biggest winner after scoring 10 points in 18 minutes on Wednesday.
Mar 23 - 1:05 AM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) will not play vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

Greg Monroe stands to gain some minutes in Henson's absence, with Thon Maker and Mirza Teletovic also in the equation. It's possible that we'll even see Spencer Hawes or Terrence Jones crack the rotation. Henson is day-to-day so this doesn't have significant long-term implications.
Mar 22 - 9:13 PM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

Henson appeared to injure his left thumb on Tuesday night when Damian Lillard crossed him up, causing Henson to fall to the floor. If Henson is unable to play on Wednesday, Greg Monroe would soak up most of his minutes. Thon Maker would likely see an uptick in playing time as well.
Mar 22 - 12:59 PM

John Henson blocked four shots on Friday vs. the Lakers with eight points, nine rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

Greg Monroe was ejected in the third quarter, so Henson closed this game out for the Bucks and played well. He's averaging 6.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games, but the problem is that he's getting just 17.6 minutes per game in that span and coach Jason Kidd has pulled him out of the rotation in the past without warning. For now, he's more of a deep-league pickup if you need blocks.
