Former Putnam City High School star Xavier Henry will miss the remainder of the season due to injury. Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Times talked to Henry about having to sit out.

In the video, Henry said that despite injuries this season, he showed he can bring intensity and aggression to the floor.

Henry is coming to the end of a one-year deal with the Lakers, so his status is still up in the air for next season. In 43 games this season, Henry averaged a career-high 10.0 points and 2.7 rebounds per game while shooting 41 percent from the floor.
