Bucks backup center John Henson said he also suffered a plantaris injury, although Bucks officials claimed it was a “sore left Achilles.” Henson added his plantaris wasn’t torn but rather “sprained.’’ Henson was sidelined for the first four games of the regular season before returning to action Nov. 6 against New York. He played 23 minutes in his first game back against the Knicks but has played only nine, 10 and 15 minutes in the last three games.
Henson called the store three days earlier to ask what time they closed. He wanted to buy a Rolex watch. When Henson arrived, the door was locked the employees had closed the store. They noted the license plates on Henson’s red Tahoe, which police said were from a dealer. The employee on one of the 911 calls said she was told by police to call should the car return. “The officer told us if they came back, we’re supposed to call again,” the woman said. “They’re at our front door now and we’re not letting them in. I am hiding in the office. I don’t want them to see me out there. We’re pretending like we’re closed. They’re looking in the window. They’re just kind of pacing back and forth. I don’t feel comfortable letting them in. I just really don’t at all.”
The Milwaukee branch of the NAACP says Bucks player John Henson deserves more than a “closed-door apology” from the owner of a Wisconsin jewelry store where Henson says employees racially profiled him. Henson said Thomas Dixon, owner of Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in suburban Whitefish Bay, met with him at the team’s training facility and apologized on Tuesday. That’s after Henson said employees on Monday refused to let him in the store, then called police.
A day after Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson accused a Whitefish Bay, Wis. jewelry store of racial profiling, he told press members that the store apologized. After Bucks practice Tuesday, Henson told reporters that the president of Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers, Tom Dixon, met with him at the training center. “He was sincere in his apology,” Henson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He knew that shouldn’t have happened. He’s had some prior incidents, but it still doesn’t make it right for them to do what they did. It’s a real issue, but right now I want to focus on the game tonight (vs. Minnesota) and there will be time to talk about it later. I am going to do some things to raise awareness of situations like that and go from there.”
We’re aware of the situation John encountered yesterday and have been in close contact with him regarding the details. It’s an incredibly upsetting and frustrating experience for anyone to go through and the entire Bucks family supports him. We appreciate the store owner reaching out to apologize and meet with John in person. It’s important to us that he sees the kind of character John Henson has. John is a terrific teammate and player, and prides himself on being a good role model in the Milwaukee community. While this illustrates a very real issue in our society, we know this incident isn’t reflective of the entire Milwaukee community. John is very appreciative of the support he has received from fans and community members across the state, and we’re all looking forward to putting that support behind something positive and getting back to basketball.
