Former Kansas University guard Xavier Henry is a member of the Golden State Warriors’ summer-league team, the organization announced. Henry, a 6-foot-6, 220 pounder from Oklahoma City, finished last season with Golden State’s D-League team in Santa Cruz, Calif.

Henry, 25, suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon while with the Los Angeles Lakers in November of 2014 and was out for nearly 15 months. He returned to average 15.6 points a game in nine D-League games last season. The Warriors will play in the Las Vegas summer league that begins play today.
