Maker managed 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt), eight rebounds, and one block in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 143-100 win over the Trail Blazers.
Maker finished with a season high rebounding total while matching his season high in scoring. It was expected that Maker would see an increased role in the aftermath of John Henson (wrist) being injured, and the third-year big man has earned double-digit minutes in two of the last three tilts. Maker's ability to hit threes and block shots fits into Milwaukee's schemes on both ends of the court, but he's unlikely to establish himself as a reliable option outside of deeper leagues.
Maker is set for a larger role with John Henson (wrist) ruled out, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Maker will slot into Henson's spot off the bench for a significant stretch with Henson set to undergo wrist surgery. Maker has appeared in six games this season and is averaging 5.5 points along with 3.2 rebounds per contest.
Maker had 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 124-109 victory over Toronto.
Maker saw some additional run with Giannis Antetokounmpo (concussion) on the sidelines, putting up his best line of the year so far. This was an encouraging sign for the third-year big-man, although we would need to see him do it a few more times to consider him fantasy relevant.
Maker is expected to see an uptick in playing time Monday against the Raptors, Kane Pitman of Pick and Roll reports.
Maker has been on the court for just 18 minutes through the first six games of the season, but with Giannis Antetekounmpo (concussion) ruled out, Maker should enter the game off the bench behind Ersan Ilyasova. Maker has drilled three of five shots from the floor to begin the year.
Maker managed eight points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and one block in 12 minutes during Friday's 125-95 win over the Timberwolves.
Maker made his first appearance of the season, though it took a blowout win for it to happen. With new additions Brook Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova (as well as John Henson) ahead of Maker in the team's pecking order at center, his minutes could be quite limited.
