Milwaukee Bucks’ John Henson out two weeks


The Milwaukee Bucks got another in a series of bad breaks Monday afternoon when they found out they would be without power forward John Henson for the next two weeks.

Bucks’ head coach Larry Drew made the announcement Monday afternoon, according to Aron Yohannes.

Henson missed Saturday’s 117-95 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday night.

The Bucks selected Henson with the 14th overall pick in the 2012 draft and he had a rough rookie year. The former North Carolina Tar Heel averaging just 6.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game. He played in 63 games, starting nine and shot only 48.2% from the field.

Henson has showed great improvement in year two. He’s made 14 starts in 28 games and is playing  28.6 minutes per game. He’s putting up 12.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.7 assists per game. Henson is shooting 52.7% from the field and 62.2% from the free throw line (he shot 53.3% from the charity stripe last year).

The Bucks will next be in action on Tuesday when they travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers.
