Maten was sent back to the G League on Friday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Maten has spent the majority of this season in the G League and is still looking for his NBA debut. It will likely come at some point this season, however, since he continues to post strong numbers with the Skyforce.
Maten was recalled from the G League on Thursday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Maten will provide depth for Thursday's game against the Rockets after racking up 31 points and 10 boards for the Sioux Falls Skyforce earlier in the week. The rookie has yet to appear in a game for the Heat this season.
Maten tallied 31 points (11-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists in the loss Monday to Iowa.
Maten posted another double-double, a consistent theme for the forward this year. It seems unlikely Maten will continue to wreak havoc on the G League, but Miami's depth at the NBA level might mean it'll take longer than normal to call up someone who has displayed his level of skill.
Maten posted 35 points (11-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 12-14 FT), 13 rebounds and one steal in the loss Wednesday to Santa Cruz.
Maten continued to build on his league lead in total points, but it's astounding the big man has also been able to keep up in the rebounding department, as he ranks just outside the top-10 in terms of rebounds per game (10.2). Maten is one of the very best fantasy options in the G League at the moment, but there's a real possibility he could see extended time with the Heat if their aspirations for a playoff spot start to dwindle.
Maten was sent down to the G League on Friday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Maten will presumably continue to find himself in the G League quite often, as he has yet to appear in a game for the Heat. That will likely only change if Miami deals with a significant amount of frontcourt injuries.
