Bucks Injury News: John Henson Sidelined with Knee Sprain

The diagnosis was made official yesterday, but the injury happened on Tuesday.  John Henson has a sprained right knee.  The Milwaukee Bucks rookie injured the knee on Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls, but he underwent an MRI yesterday to confirm the injury.

According to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Henson will be limited to non-impact activities and will not be on the court for at least the next two weeks.  It's a tough break for the 21-year old forward.  It seems the injury may possibly keep him from the team's opener on November 2nd.

Henson injured the knee in the third quarter.  He went to the floor and immediately grabbed his knee.  Fortunately, nothing was torn.

Henson played his college ball for North Carolina.  He averaged 13.7 points per game during the 2011-12 season.  Henson played in 35 games last season and averaged 29.1 minutes per game.  He was drafted Henson 14th overall.

The team is excited about what he can bring to the table.  They finished ninth in the Eastern Conference and just out of the playoff picture.  They are not far off from being a competitor, but they still finished under .500 last season.  The team hopes Henson can help them get over the hump and get them into the playoffs.  His injury, while not severe, is difficult because he is a rookie and will need as much exposure as possible.
