Maten was recalled from the G League on Wednesday. Maten has yet to play NBA minutes, but it's possible he'll make his debut Wednesday. In the G League, the Georgia product has been averaging 23.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 block across 32.3 minutes.
Maten was assigned to the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Thursday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. Maten spent the last 10 days with Miami, but he will now return to the G League for the Skyforce's game on Friday. He should get some valuable minutes after not appearing in any games for Miami.
The Heat recalled Maten from the G League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Sunday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Maten will presumably dress for the eighth time this season at the NBA level in Monday's game against the Hawks. Despite dominating in the G League this season to the tune of 24.4 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, Maten is still awaiting his NBA debut. The Heat's deep rotation likely means Maten won't see minutes Monday unless the game turns into a blowout.
Maten (ankle) suited up Thursday in the G League Sioux Falls Skyforce's 130-108 win over the Long Island Nets, finishing with eight points (3-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes. It marked Maten's first game appearance since Jan. 2 after a right ankle injury sidelined him for the better part of six weeks. The power forward should see his playing time increase in the Skyforce's games to come and will likely reassert himself as one of the top contributors on the G League circuit. Maten is averaging 25.6 points (on 58.8 percent shooting from the field), 9.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 triples and 1.2 blocks in 31.7 minutes per game over 22 appearances with Sioux Falls.
