To have hip surgery, could miss 2017-18 season

August 2, 2017
Henderson is set to have surgery on his hip, putting his 2017-18 season in jeopardy, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Henderson dealt with left hip soreness for a large chunk of the 2016-17 season, though played through it often, missing just 10 games for the 76ers. As a low-profile free agent, his potential absence for the entirety of the upcoming season likely won't affect the NBA landscape. That said, he posted a respectable 9.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 23.2 minutes per game last season while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from beyond the arc. More details about his surgery and recovery time should emerge sooner than later.

Henderson served as the starting shooting guard for the better part of six seasons with the Hornets, but with C.J. McCollum ahead of him on the depth chart in Portland last season, the veteran was forced to transition to a full-time bench role for the first time since his rookie year. As expected, the move to the second unit resulted in a steep decline in both Henderson’s playing time and his overall statistical production. Henderson averaged a mere 8.7 points in 19.9 minutes per game, but did at least exhibit some growth as a sniper from downtown. Despite averaging nine minutes fewer than he did a year prior, Henderson’s 136 three-point tries tied his number of attempts from 2014-15, and his 35.3 percent conversion rate was the best of his career. Now 28 years old and with his athleticism likely trending downward, Henderson figures to spend more time camping out behind the arc in the seasons to come, which should suit the shooting-needy 76ers just fine. The team inked Henderson, a local product who was a prep star in Pennsylvania, to a two-year, $18 million contract in July. He’ll presumably reclaim his familiar spot in the starting five, but Hollis Thompson and Nik Stauskas could pose threats to Henderson’s minutes while coming off the bench.
The Bobcats' failed experiment with Lance Stephenson last season was a boon to Henderson's bottom line, statistically-speaking, yet the Duke product's output experienced a slight downturn in nearly every category. After easing into the campaign due to a strained hamstring suffered in training camp, Henderson earned a starting nod in 70 of the final 72 games, logging time at both two-guard and small forward en route to 13.0 points (on 44 percent shooting), 3.5 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 30 minutes per game. The production jibes with his line from the previous three seasons – 14.8 points (on 45 percent shooting), 3.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 0.8 steals in 32 minutes nightly – when he started 190 of 200 games played, but he'll be challenged to uphold that standard following the first change of venue in his career. Traded to the Blazers in the offseason, the 27-year-old Henderson was at first glance a viable candidate to assume Wesley Matthews' starting role. Soon after his arrival, though, Henderson underwent a left hip debridement on July 7, which isn't expected to impede his readiness for training camp. Instead, general manager Neil Olshey's support of 2013 first-round pick C.J. McCollum is the gravest threat to Henderson dropping out of the fantasy picture, or at least sustaining enough of a workload to maintain relevance.
Although Henderon had established himself as a legitimate starter in this league, the Hornets made the free agency splash of signing Lance Stephenson to push Henderson into more of a sixth man role. What that obviously means for the 26-year-old swingman is fewer minutes to some degree. With Stephenson's size, though, it's more than likely the two will spend time on the floor together, allowing Henderson to probably come in around 25 minutes per game. If the need for additional offense calls, though, the perennial sub-45 percent shooter with limited range will probably find himself on the bench.
Henderson shook off an early-season foot injury and demotion behind rookie Jeffery Taylor to finish with career-highs in scoring (15.5), assists (2.6), three-point percentage (33 percent) and free-throw percentage (82 percent), earning a three-year, $18 million extension from the Bobcats in July. It was the second half in particular in which Henderson truly seemed to come into his own, averaging 18.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists on 46 percent shooting. With the Bobcats deploying most of their offseason efforts into improving the team's frontcourt, Henderson and Kemba Walker appear relatively secure in their roles as the team's primary scorers out of the backcourt. Moreover, the addition of Al Jefferson gives the Bobcats an offensive force down low that that the team hasn't had in its franchise history, which could afford Henderson more open looks from three as opposing defenses look to collapse in the post. If Henderson can continue to knock down more threes as a result, he'll have a decent shot at another career year.
Henderson was possibly the best all-around player for the Bobcats last season, returning from knee surgery and starting 55 games. He led the Bobcats with a 15.1 points per game average last season and also averaged 4.1 rebounds per game. He should make a good one-two combination with Kidd-Gilchrist and appears to have future All-Star potential.
Henderson had a breakout second half of last season. He underwent hip surgery to relieve pain in his knee that he had all last year and he came into camp saying he is 100 percent. Although he still has plenty to work on, he has also shown plenty of potential. Look for Henderson to be the number two scoring option on the Bobcats this season.
In his rookie season, Henderson saw very little playing time. He likely won’t see significant playing time again this season because of the heavy minutes that Jackson logs.
Henderson is an explosive player who has the tools and athleticism to develop into a big-time contributor. He does not have a great outside shot; he's more of a slasher who can create shots off the dribble. Henderson has the talent to put up big fantasy numbers for owners but may not see the minutes at least in the beginning of his rookie year.
