ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Jim Boylan could sense some frustration from his rookie forward. John Henson wasn't playing much, something he's not accustomed to.
The Bucks coach called Henson into his office roughly two weeks ago and delivered a message: If you are going to make the progress necessary to play, certain things need to change.
"It's always interesting when young guys come into the league," Boylan said. "They don't understand what it takes, and it's interesting to watch to see if they can get it during the course of the year.
"John has made a lot of progress in the last couple weeks as far as understanding what you need to do, the work ethic that you need to have especially when you are a young player and you aren't playing that much. You've got to stay ready, you have to keep working."
The message got through to Henson loud and clear.
"Just off the court, just staying a little extra, doing weights, that type of thing," Henson said. "Just trying to get better every day.
