North Carolina power forward John Henson said an ankle injury is to blame for bad results on some of the physical testing at the Chicago pre-draft camp. "It's not 100 percent," he said after working out for Golden State on Thursday. "But I don't have time to sit down and rest it. These two weeks are crucial in my career. Regardless of how it feels, I've got to go." He left Oakland for Phoenix and after that was scheduled for visits with the Rockets, Bucks, Cavaliers, Raptors, Pistons and 76ers. NBA.com

While I have Henson sliding to Minnesota at No. 18 in my latest mock draft, he'll have a chance to prove himself with a number of lottery teams (top 14) in the days to come and could certainly wind up there. He worked out with Portland (No. 6) on Wednesday and will visit Golden State (No. 7) on Thursday for a workout that will include Jared Sullinger, another power forward auditioning to be picked that high. Henson said he is also headed for Phoenix (No. 13), Houston (Nos. 14 and 16), Toronto (No. 8), Philadelphia (No. 15), Detroit (No. 9) and Cleveland (Nos. 4 and 24). SI.com
