Xavier Henry wasn’t getting a lot of minutes lately anyway, and any he might have seen with O.J. Mayo leaving town went away when Mayo didn’t actually leave town (and Shane Battier came in, too), but this still is a little concerning.
Grizzlies’ rookie Henry may be out the rest of the season due to knee surgery, according to the Commercial Appeal.
There are rumblings that doctors have now found a condition in Henry’s chronically sore right knee that could require surgery.
Henry didn’t play Wednesday in the team’s win at Minnesota because of knee soreness. If Henry must have surgery, he’ll likely sit out the rest of the regular season.
Henry being out will not impact the Grizzlies playoff drive. The more troubling thing is a rookie with a chronic knee issue. If surgery can maybe fix it, then there really isn’t an option.
