Thon Maker blocked a career-high five shots against the Raptors on Thursday, adding two points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 13 minutes. The rim protection has been the story for Maker, who had 1.8 blocks per game in his previous five postseason outings. Considering he was one of the most raw players to be taken in the lottery in quite some time, the Bucks have to be pleased with his development. He had a couple eye-opening games at Summer League last year, so maybe he'll be back there again. Maker will be on the radar in the last couple rounds next season.

Jason Kidd is hopeful that having Thon Maker in the starting lineup during the playoffs will help speed up his development. "This is a great opportunity for him to go through the process," Kidd said. "Being a starter can hopefully help him grow faster. He's going against All-Stars or he's going to go against quite a few talented players out on the floor when you go against the other starting group. So hopefully this speeds up the process." Through the first two games of Milwaukee's first-round series, Maker has put forth averages of 4.5 points, 3.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.5 blocks per contest.

Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker will start against the Raptors in Game 1 on Saturday. It's hard to believe a second-round pick, Snell and a major project like Maker would be a playoff starting lineup, but Giannis is just that good. Maker will almost certainly be on a short leash, especially if Jonas Valanciunas gets going.

Thon Maker hit 5-of-7 shots with a 3-pointer to score 11 points on Sunday, but he added just one rebound with no other stats in 20 minutes. The offense was nice, but it's still a far cry from his 23-point eruption on Friday. Considering Maker's shaky playing time and paltry supporting stats, there should be better options on nearly all waiver wires.

Thon Maker scored four points with three rebounds in 12 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday. Even with John Henson (thumb) not playing, Maker still couldn't get additional playing time. He's not going to play enough to have value in most fantasy leagues.
