2012 NCAA Tournament: John Henson Will Play For North Carolina Against Creighton

John Henson will play for the North Carolina Tar Heels against the Creighton Bluejays, according to David Morrison of the Greensboro News & Record. The junior forward hasn't played since suffering a wrist injury March 9. It isn't clear yet whether he will be in the starting lineup when Sunday's third-round 2012 NCAA Tournament game tips off at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Henson is averaging 13.8 points and 10.1 rebounds per game for the Tar Heels this season. He should provide a major boost offensively and defensively around the rim as UNC vies for another tournament title.
