John Henson Injury: Rolled Ankle Sends UNC Forward To Bench

Already without Kendall Marshall, the North Carolina Tar Heels are now dealing with a hobbled John Henson. Early in Saturday's Elite Eight matchup with Kansas, forward John Henson went down awkwardly while making a move in the paint. As he tried to make a move to the hoop, Henson got tangled up and rolled his ankle, leaving him on the floor in pain.

Here's how it happened:

A short time later, trainers were attending to Henson on the bench as he rested his foot on a nearby chair. It appeared the medical staff was re-taping his ankle, and it's likely he'll continue on. But his injury is one worth monitoring as UNC tries to advance to the Final Four with a win over Kansas.
