Video: John Henson shows off late against the Pacers

Minutes have thus far been few and far between for Bucks lottery pick John Henson, but he offered a glimpse of his inside-out game late in Wednesday's blowout win over the Pacers.

We saw ample evidence of John Henson's offensive skill back in July during summer league, but a preseason knee injury and the strong play of Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and (lately) Samuel Dalembert has relegated the former North Carolina star to mop-up duty in the first few weeks of the NBA season. No shame in that, especially considering the valuable preseason time that Henson missed with a sprained knee.

With the Bucks rolling to an easy win over Indiana on Wednesday, Henson played most of the fourth quarter and wasn't bashful on the offensive end (the term "chucking" comes to mind), finishing 5/8 from the field and adding a pair of blocks (see video above, courtesy of the excellent DownToBuck Youtube channel). I doubt his garbage time efforts will earn him immediate minutes in Scott Skiles' rotation, but there's nothing wrong with baby steps in a rookie's first month of NBA action.
