Henry, 23, is averaging only 2.1 points in the regular season after scoring eight in the meaningless fourth quarter of the Lakers' 136-115 loss Sunday to Golden State. " 'X' is just trying to get back to who he is," Scott said. "It's really just trying to find out if he's going to be the player that he was last year before the injuries or if he'll be a different type of player. Which means he'll have to adjust his game. "We're hoping that something happens where he can all of a sudden have the explosiveness that he had, that I saw last year." Los Angeles Times
