Gerald Henderson handled the hip pain on the basketball court, playing multiple seasons with severe arthritis. But he had enough of the pain that drifted into his everyday life. “My hip had deteriorated so much, it was bone on bone,” he said. “It was grinding all day whenever I wanted to move. Working out for any extended period was painful. It was just tough then going home with the family and you’re in pain, you’re just kind of on edge. Just overall, I was not in a great state of mind, and I had to make that decision, and it was the best decision for myself and my family and for my health.”

Now, he’s ready to rejoin the NBA. He had teams willing to sign him a year ago despite the bad hip. “In terms of my hip, it’s the best it’s been in a long time,” Henderson said. “You go three or four years and you have an injury, a lot of stuff gets off balance. Overall, I’ve been able to get my body into really good shape – strength and mobility from my toes to my head. It’s been a therapeutic year.”
Had it not been for offseason hip surgery, Gerald Henderson would have been on an NBA roster this season. Now six months removed from surgery, Henderson has been cleared to play and could be a key addition for a team looking for a wing off the bench. A career 44 percent shooter from the field and 33 percent from 3, Henderson has played in 15 playoff games in his career.
