Milwaukee Bucks center John Henson will miss the team's three-game road because of a sprained left ankle he suffered on Dec. 20 in a game at Cleveland, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Monday.
Bucks coach Larry Drew said Henson could be sidelined for up to two weeks. But Henson said he wants to be back next week.
Henson is averaging 12.4 points and 8.0 rebounds for the season, but he has been particularly productive lately. In his last 10 games, Henson averaged 15.9 points and 10.7 rebounds a game.
Drew said Larry Sanders will continue to start at center and Ersan Ilyasova at power forward.
