ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Consistency was certainly not a word used to describe John Henson's rookie season with the Milwaukee Bucks. Minutes were sporadic, as was his level of play. But there also were flashes of great talent, as the first round pick put up some incredible stat lines.
After an offseason that included many appearances on behalf of the team and countless hours working in the gym, Henson is hopeful his second season will include more consistent efforts leading to a bigger role with the Bucks.
"Hopefully that's what happens but you never know until you get into practice and kind of establish everybody's roles," Henson said. "I'm going to play hard and hopefully I'll get consistent minutes."
Though the Bucks feel Henson's time to shine is going to come sooner rather than later, Ersan Ilyasova is going to start at power forward. That doesn't mean Henson isn't going to play a major role, but he's going to have to do it off the bench for now.
