Xavier Henry G LAL 13 Hrs
Xavier Henry logged 31 minutes off the bench in Friday's game, scoring 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Henry saw extra minutes with the game being out of reach for most of the night and put up a bit better line in Thursday's laugher. He has major fantasy deficiencies that destroy his value but if you're looking for some popcorn stats and this type of run continues down the road, then maybe he'll be worth a look. Maybe.

Xavier Henry hit 5-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 19 minutes of Thursday's historic 142-94 loss to the Clippers.
It was the biggest win in Clips history, and the biggest loss in Lakers history. Henry is going to likely continue to see a bump in minutes now that he's healthy, with Jordan Farmar, Jodie Meeks and Wes Johnson all potentially seeing a minutes hit in the process. But for now, Henry is at the bottom of the ladder and we're not ready to try to predict what changes the Lakers will make after tonight's embarrassing performance.

Xavier Henry (knee) said he is feeling better every time he steps on the court.
After missing two months with a bone bruise and abnormal meniscus in his right knee, Henry followed up a scoreless game on Monday with 12 points in Tuesday's loss to New Orleans. "I don't have my usual bounce that I have. I'm continuing to strengthen my knee and hopefully soon I'll be jumping how I usually jump," Henry said. "I'm not more tentative. I'm just playing the game smart right now." Unfortunately for his owners, Henry is towards the back end of Mike D'Antoni's crowded rotation and won't provide much fantasy value this season.

Xavier Henry scored 19 points in his second game with the Lakers' D-League affiliate on Saturday.
The Lakers haven't had much practice time lately, so Henry is using D-League games to regain his conditioning and test the health of his right knee. He's been out since late December due to a bone bruise and an "abnormality" in his meniscus, but it appears he may join the Lakers as soon as Monday. He's worth keeping an eye on, but fantasy value may be hard to come by with Kent Bazemore, Jodie Meeks, Jordan Farmar and Wesley Johnson all healthy.

Xavier Henry (knee) will play for the Lakers' D-League affiliate on Thursday.
It's essentially a rehab assignment for Henry, who has been sidelined for nearly two months with a severe bone bruise. Even when he rejoins the Lakers he won't have much fantasy appeal with Kent Bazemore getting plenty of minutes and Nick Young (knee) possibly returning on Friday.
Xavier Henry G LAL 10 Days
Xavier Henry (knee) plans to go through full-court five-on-five drills this weekend, possibly clearing the way for a return next week.
Henry has been out since Dec. 29 due to a bone bruise in his knee, but he's been practicing since Saturday and doesn't seem to have had any setbacks. Nick Young (knee) may also return as soon as Friday's home game, so the Lakers may get a much-needed infusion of healthy wing players in the near future.
Xavier Henry G LAL 14 Days
Xavier Henry (knee) went through a full practice on Saturday and will need a least one week before he can return to game action, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.
Anytime Henry has progress and doesn't have a setback is a good day. He's been out since December due to his knee injury and was originally expected to miss just 7-10 days. The Lakers are getting some production out of the guys they're using now, so fantasy owners can ignore the low-upside Henry.
Xavier Henry G LAL 15 Days
Xavier Henry (knee) was cleared for basketball activities on Friday.
He's had his timetable pushed back or needed to be re-evaluated more times than you can count on one hand, so it's hard to get very excited about Henry returning. He doesn't have a game that translates to fantasy anyway, but it'll be nice to see him back on the court.
