Maker (knee) is out Friday against the Timberwolves, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
A sore left knee will keep Maker sidelined Friday. He should tentatively be considered questionable for Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets.
Maker (knee) will remain out for Tuesday's preseasno tilt with the Thunder, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Maker is missing a second straight contest due to a minor knee injury, but the expectation is that he should still be ready for the regular-season opener in just over a week. Along with Maker, the Bucks will be without seven other players as well for rest or injury, so they'll be severely short-handed against the Thunder.
Maker has been ruled out for Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves with a knee injury, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Maker's injury is being described as minor, so it looks to be nothing more than a precautionary night off for the big man. With Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring) being held out too, the Bucks will be rather light on frontcourt depth, paving the way for Christian Wood to potentially see added minutes Sunday.
Maker will draw the start at center over Tyler Zeller for Thursday's Game 6 against the Celtics.
This decision isn't too surprising, as Maker has outplayed Zeller since usual starter John Henson went down with a back injury. Over the past three games, Maker has averaged 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 blocks across 26.0 minutes.
Maker tallied eight points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five blocks, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes during Sunday's 104-102 victory over the Celtics.
Maker had another five blocked shots Sunday while also seeing 30 minutes of playing time, far more than starter Tyler Zeller. Maker has stamped his authority on the defensive end of the floor in the absence of John Henson (back) and has been rewarded with a nice run with the starters. Should Henson be forced to miss another game, Maker should be able to see minutes in the mid-twenties once again in Game 5.
