Bucks center Henson out with leg injury

Bucks center John Henson had to celebrate his birthday Saturday

on the bench against the Minnesota Timberwolves with a left leg


Henson, who turned 23, said he thought he might have a high

ankle sprain, though he is supposed to undergo more tests to

determine exactly what’s ailing him. It is unclear how long he

might be out.

Henson leads Milwaukee in rebounding (8.0 per game) and blocks

(2.25 per game). He is third on the team in scoring at 12.4


The Bucks did get Larry Sanders back Friday after the

shot-blocking center missed 25 games following surgery on his right


Injuries have been a problem all season for Milwaukee (6-23),

which has the worst record in the NBA.
