“Just one of those things, man,” (John) Henson said. “I’ve just got to work on getting my confidence back up and hopefully get my way out of this mini sophomore slump I’m going through. It’s just a matter of time, and I’ve just got to get my confidence and play back up.”

Another thing that Henson is still working on getting comfortable with is playing the center position full time. Since Larry Sanders fractured his right orbital bone against Houston on Feb. 8, Henson has been Zaza Pachulia’s backup. After getting used to playing the forward position more when Sanders came back from his right thumb injury, Henson is adjusting back to life as a center.

“Playing the five (center) is a little different full time,” Henson said. “Obviously that’s tougher for me on both ends of the court. Hopefully, we can get Larry back as soon as possible so I can slide back over.”
