Thon Maker    C  Agent

 

 

Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Thon Maker bulked up over the offseason "to endure the banging inside and prevent him from being pushed around." "It’s going to help me out on the offensive end, too," Maker said of the added muscle. "When I am making moves, little bumps don’t bother me. And I will be able to finish through contact." An ankle issue limited Maker to one preseason game, but he fared well with eight points, eight rebounds, two assists and two triples in 26 minutes. He's projected to start at center, but Kidd's crazy rotations may make it tough for Maker to produce consistent value.

Thon Maker (ankle) is expected to play against the Pistons on Friday. His ankle injury has kept him out for most of camp, but he was back at practice on Wednesday. Maker is expected to start and coach Jason Kidd mentioned he may be a bigger part of the offense this season. Still, Maker may not get enough minutes to draft in 12-team leagues.

Thon Maker (right ankle) and Matthew Dellavedova (left knee) were full participants during Tuesday's practice. "He was full-go," said head coach Jason Kidd of Maker. "He was everything; he did great today for his first day back from his ankle sprain." Maker had been relegated to non-contact work for the past week, so it's great to see him ramping up his activities, and maybe he'll be able to get out there for Friday's preseason finale against the Pistons. Either way, he appears to be on track for the regular season opener, and there's a decent chance he'll be starting for the Bucks this season.

Thon Maker (right ankle) was limited to the non-contact portions of Monday's practice. Maker has yet to take the floor during the preseason and considering he's still not taking contact, that fact may remain unchanged with just one preseason game left for Milwaukee. The ankle issue doesn't sound all that serious, but if he's still not ready to go by opening night, John Henson would likely get the start at the center-spot as Jason Kidd prefers to keep Greg Monroe with the second unit.
