Gerald Henderson is starting to feel comfortable with the ball.
Gerald Henderson is in a crowd of talented wingmen, but he is starting to creep back into the limelight.
After all, his dunk on Dwight Howard in November is still the highlight of the season, but that's beside the point.
The four-year guard has averaged 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and two assists per game this month on 45 percent shooting.
He missed 15 games due to a foot injury but has been consistent ever since.
And his scoring role may increase if the Bobcats are still looking to trade reserve guard Ben Gordon, the team's best three-point shooter.
If Gordon is out, then Henderson will have no choice but to heed coach Mike Dunlap's ultimatum: shoot more threes or don't play.
He has already attempted 51 treys, four more than last season's total.
Hendo has been a great leader for this young squad in the last couple of seasons, which is why he bears the captain title.
He becomes a restricted free agent after his rookie contract expires in July, but his value to the team will probably keep him in Charlotte.
