2. What’s wrong with John Henson? Can his bad games recently really be attributed to a lack of minutes, or is there a deeper problem here?

AM: His strong performance last night would indicate that he certainly benefits from receiving greater opportunities, yet at the same time Henson’s play good or bad comes in strange bursts.

Whether that’s his 10 points and seven boards in eight minutes against Sacramento or his four quick fouls against the Pistons, Henson needs to address that. Consistency has to become a part of his game.

TW: I think Henson is one of the more passionate players on this team, and since the entire unit has played poorly and he hasn’t gotten much run he’s been visibly bummed out at times.

That’s not the John Henson that impressed the Bucks enough to get that large contract extension, and I don’t think its the Henson we’ll get going forward. Hook loves the Bucks and wants to win, and knows being distracted by anything outside of the game he’s currently in hurts his chances of winning.

JT: I still think he’s still getting back into the rhythm of things after his injury.  Also, a lack of consistency has always plagued Henson throughout his career so it’s not like this is new.

AS: I’m not too worried about Henson. The early season has been a struggle, but he seemed to get his groove back last night with a 15 point, 11 rebound effort against the Sacramento Kings.

As the team gets healthy and the rotation becomes more clearly defined, Henson should become more consistent.
