Thon Maker    C  Bucks

 

 

Maker finished with zero points (0-2 FG), one rebound, and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 104-100 win over the Pistons. Maker saw the crunch-time minutes down the stretch while starting center John Henson watched from the bench. However, Maker didn't do much in terms of contributing to the box score. This was actually the second straight scoreless performance for Maker, and the third in the last four games. Outside of deeper (or dynasty) leagues, he simply isn't a reliable option for fantasy.

Thon Maker scored two points in 16 minutes with three rebounds and one assist against the Jazz on Saturday. The Bucks did roll with a no-center lineup quite a bit, and that may continue more often. Expect Maker to be around 20 minutes most nights, so there's not much to like here in fantasy while the Bucks are healthy.

Thon Maker will move back to the bench against the Jazz on Saturday. He'll be behind John Henson for this one. The Bucks are not really rolling with many small-ball five lineups, so Maker could still get close to 20 minutes. He's not really a guy to count on in most leagues.

Maker posted 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime win over the Suns. The young center parlayed a season-high amount of minutes into a career-best scoring total, and his night could have potentially been even bigger had he not fouled out late in the contest. Maker has been seeing at least 20 minutes with regularity for the majority of November, but he'd yet to hit double digits in the scoring column this season until Wednesday's performance. While he doesn't typically offer much offensively, he's been a solid source of rebounds and blocks for those owning him in deeper formats.

Thon Maker started at center in place of John Henson (eye) on Wednesday vs. the Suns, scoring a season-high 16 points (6-of-11 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks before fouling out in 33 minutes. Maker is having a really quiet sophomore season, averaging just 4.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.7 blocks and 0.6 triples on 37.9 percent shooting in 18.3 minutes per game prior to Wednesday. He’ll likely head back to the bench on Saturday vs. Utah with John Henson (eye) scheduled to arrive in time for that game, and while he’s not a pickup in most re-draft leagues, just keep an eye on him in case his role grows because the upside is there.

Maker will start at center Wednesday against Phoenix. With John Henson and Giannis Antetokounmpo both out of action, coach Jason Kidd will pivot to a much smaller lineup, rolling out Gary Payton, Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton with Maker at center. Maker is coming off of a pedestrian performance Monday against the Wizards -- two points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal in 20 minutes -- but he should see a fairly significant increase in minutes Wednesday.

Thon Maker will start Wednesday's game in place of John Henson (eye). Henson had an undisclosed procedure recently and we're considering him day-to-day. Maker hasn't done enough to warrant fantasy ownership this year, even as a starter.
