Any discussion of John Henson can only truly be based on a few games, since he has only seen double digit minutes in three out of the 11 games played thus far.
Still, Henson has proven he can bring some of his rebounding ability from college to the pros, despite having an ultra thin frame.
In one game against the Miami Heat this season, John Henson was able to grab 18 rebounds while adding 17 points on 58.3 percent shooting. Miami isn't a great rebounding team, 17th in rebound differential, but it is still a high enough rebound total to indicate that Henson can perform against the big boys.
More than just rebounding, Henson has also brought some shot blocking ability to the Bucks. He blocked two shots in 17 minutes against the Memphis Grizzlies and blocked two more against Indiana in just eight minutes on the floor.
He also recorded a block against Charlotte, which means he has blocked shots in three out of the six games he played over seven minutes.
Finally, Henson has shown how well he can play through his per 36 minutes stats. While these numbers must be looked at with apprehension, they still are important and can be an indication of what would come with higher minutes. So far Henson is averaging 18.5 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per 36 minutes, significant enough to warrant more playing time.
John Henson hasn't played very many minutes for the Milwaukee Bucks, but he has already shown that he has the ability to play against bigger and stronger competition—something that was questioned when he first entered the league.
