John Henson out two weeks with sprained knee, Ekpe Udoh returns to practice

New, comment

The Bucks' lottery pick sustained the injury in a scary-looking pileup during Tuesday's loss in Chicago.

And another rookie bites the dust...for a little while at least.

While Ekpe Udoh (knee) has returned to practice and will likely play tomorrow night against the Grizzlies in La Crosse, John Henson (knee) will join fellow rookie Doron Lamb on the sidelines for at least a couple weeks--though in all honesty it could have been much worse.

The Bucks released an injury update this afternoon that clarified Henson's status as well as that of Udoh, Lamb and Luc Mbah a Moute:

John Henson will be limited to non-impact activity for approximately two weeks after suffering a left knee sprain and bone bruise in last night's preseason game vs. Chicago. Henson's non-impact activity will involve rehabilitation work in the swimming pool and on a stationary bike, along with weight room exercises.

Ekpe Udoh (left knee strain) returned to full basketball activity after missing two games with a left knee strain. He is probable for tomorrow night's game against Memphis in La Crosse, Wis.

Luc Mbah a Moute continues to rehabilitate his right knee after off-season surgery and remains out for tomorrow's game.

Doron Lamb (left elbow strain) has begun limited basketball activity and remains out for tomorrow's game.
