Stately unclear on injured Gamecock PG Henderson’s condition NWN News

COLOMBIA, SC (NWN) – South Carolina coach Don Staley is not saying that injured point guard Destiny Henderson will play when top-ranked Gamecock faces Kansas State on Friday night.

Henderson played less than half of his team’s 79-42 win over North Carolina A&T on Monday night. When the game ended, Henderson had a sleeve in his left leg and Staley said in his postgame comments that the senior guard was being checked.

“Day to day,” was Staley’s response on Thursday when asked if Henderson could be back on the court for the next game.

“She’s doing well. There she is,” Staley said, pointing to Henderson after practice.

Staley would not give details of Henderson’s injury or if he needed a scan to assess the problem.

When asked what Henderson did at Thursday’s practice, Staley was vague, saying: “He did a few things.”

The 5 foot-7 guard from Fort Myers, Florida has started 39 games in the past two seasons for Gamecock. Henderson is third on the team in scoring 12.3 points per game for the Gamecocks (8–0) and leads the team with 36 assists.

The competition with Kansas State (7-1) is part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

If Henderson can’t play, Staley says 6-4 Leticia Amihare and shooting guard Zia Cook will find time in the point guard position.
