  • Maker isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Nuggets, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports. Maker started each of the last six games but failed to reach 20 minutes in the previous two contests, and now John Henson will take his place in the starting five. The pair figure to mostly split time at center for the Pistons.

  • Maker played 16 minutes and finished with four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block Sunday in the Pistons' 107-104 loss to the Trail Blazers. For the second straight contest, Maker was held under 20 minutes while coach Dwane Casey elected to rely more heavily on backup center John Henson. While that development isn't especially encouraging for Maker's fantasy prospects, he's still the favorite to see the larger share of minutes at center moving forward, given that he's six years younger than Henson and could be a candidate to re-sign with Detroit this summer. Since replacing the now-departed Andre Drummond as the starting center earlier this month, Maker is averaging 11.8 points (on 54 percent shooting from the floor), 5.5 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.3 three-pointers in 24.7 minutes.

  • Maker scored a team-high 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal in 24 minutes during Monday's 87-76 loss to the Hornets. The Pistons shot 35.4 percent from the floor as a team, leaving Maker's modest efforts as the cream of the crop. The double-double was only his second of the season, but his new starting role in the wake of the Andre Drummond trade should afford him opportunities for more -- he's averaging 12.7 points, 7.3 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 threes while starting the last three games.

  • Maker notched 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 108-101 loss at Oklahoma City. Maker started for the eighth time this season, but five of those have come in his last eight appearances. He posted his best scoring output of the season and could be line for a bigger workload moving forward now that Andre Drummond has been traded to the Cavaliers.

  • Maker will get the start at center in Friday's matchup with the Thunder, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. Maker will be the initial beneficiary of Andre Drummond's departure from the team. It is unclear if the team plans on him starting at center going forward, but he will be the first one to get that shot. He will start in the frontcourt alongside Christian Wood and figures to see a heavier workload than usual.
