Henry sat out the second half of Wednesday's 88-67 loss at Alabama after suffering a blow to the head while diving for a loose ball. The swingman complained of feeling dizzy afterward, and asked Arkansas coach John Pelphrey to take him out of the game.
"My head was hurting; my head was lightheaded. I couldn't see; my eyes were blurry," Henry said. "I couldn't even see where I was going. I told the coach to take me out of the game. I couldn't do nothing."
Henry, who had scored a career-high 27 points in a 82-78 loss at South Carolina on Saturday, finished with only two points in 11 minutes against the Crimson Tide.
The freshman said he wasn't sure if he had suffered a concussion, but he jogged with his teammates at the start of Thursday's practice. He added that he expects to be ready in time for Sunday's game against Georgia in Bud Walton Arena.
"My head's still hurting," Henry said. "But I'm all right."
Pelphrey showed during his Thursday news conference that an eight-game losing streak hasn't affected his sense of humor, even when it comes to technical fouls.
Pelphrey was called for his sixth technical foul of the season early in the second half of Wednesday's loss at Alabama. But according to him, the referees gave him the technical after they mistook something he said.
"Last night, I said, ‘Mike, wake up,'" Pelphrey said, referring to either Arkansas forward Michael Washington or Michael Sanchez. "It just so happened that two of the referees' names were Mike, and I've got two Mikes."
Pelphrey joked that his son, Jaxson, is to blame for the high number of technical fouls the second-year coach has picked up this season. And Pelphrey joked that his son deserves to be punished for it.
"He's behind my bench and it's kind of like his little deal. He likes to bust my chops about technical fouls," Pelphrey said. "He says, ‘We may need to get one tonight, Johnny.' I'm like, ‘We're not getting one tonight.'
"I think he subliminally is causing all of this. That's the last thing that gets put in my head before tip-off. So I'm going to blame him. He'll get spanked tonight for all that."
Freshman Rotnei Clarke has an idea about what fellow Arkansas guard Stefan Welsh is going through.
Welsh is in the midst of a shooting slump, missing all five of his 3-point attempts and making only 1-of-8 shots from the floor against Alabama. He finished with two points in 28 minutes.
The junior hasn't hit a 3-pointer in his last four games, missing on 15 consecutive shots from long range. He's also 9-of-40 shooting during that stretch.
"It's probably just a mindset. He knows he's a great shooter," Clarke said. "He told me the same thing when I was going through a slump earlier (in the season), that you got to keep shooting.
"You'll eventually break through it and get going."
Former players and coaches from Arkansas' 1994 national championship team will sign autographs around the concourse of Bud Walton Arena from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Fans wanting autographs must have a ticket to Sunday's game against Georgia to enter the arena. Once inside, fans won't be permitted to leave the building and re-enter for the game.
Each fan will be permitted to have up to two items autographed. Doors to the arena will open at noon, and a replay of the 1994 NCAA Championship game will be shown on the video board inside the arena and on monitors throughout the concourse.
