The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday by the score of 117-95.  The loss dropped them to 6-24, the worst record in the NBA.  To make matters worse, second-year power forward John Henson missed the game with a leg injury and will be out at least three games. reported a tweet by Aron Yohannes, freelance reporter covering the Bucks, about Henson's status.
The injury is to Henson's left leg and is similar to a high ankle sprain, which tends to take some time to heal and can be a lingering injury.  Henson will be re-evaluated next week.

The injury means that Larry Sanders will be cemented in at the center position, with Miroslava Raduljica, Ersan Ilyasova, Ekpe Udoh and Khris Middleton to get the bulk of the remaining front court minutes.

Henson was drafted with the 14th pick in the 2012 NBA draft out of North Carolina. Last season, he averaged 6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game. This season, Henson's playing time has more than doubled and is averaging 12.4 points, 8 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots per game.
