Pistons' Thon Maker: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker is in the starting lineup Wednesday at Philadelphia, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

The 23-year-old will enter the starting lineup in place of John Henson (ankle), who will be sidelined at least a week. Maker is averaging 8.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 blocks in 21.3 minutes across 13 starts entering Wednesday.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Minutes pick up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker tallied three points (1-5 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals, one block and one assist across 28 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 96-84 loss to the Knicks.

After being held to 12 minutes or fewer in each of the Pistons' previous five games, Maker picked up some extra run while starting center John Henson dealt with foul trouble. Maker was able to provide some quality defensive stats, but the poor shooting and lack of rebounds diminished some of his luster. He'll likely fade back into a more limited bench role in the Pistons' next contest Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Decent line in 12 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker (ankle) compiled five points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Thunder.

Maker (ankle) returned to the rotation following a one-game absence and managed a decent stat line considering his modest minute total. Nevertheless, after reaching double figures in scoring in four of five games between Feb. 7 and Feb. 20, Maker has combined for 11 points across his last four appearances and thus can likely be avoided across most fantasy formats.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

After missing Sunday's loss against the Kings due to a right ankle sprain, Maker looks to be trending in the right direction for Wednesday's contest against the Thunder. While the big man is listed as probable, make sure to keep an eye out on his status as tip-off approaches to ensure that he is in fact available.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings, Johnny Kane of Fox Sports Detroit reports.

Maker's sprained right ankle will keep him sidelined for the first time since late January, but the big man's role in the Detroit rotation had already been dwindling of late. Over the past two games, Maker was held under 10 minutes in both contests. Look for John Henson and Donta Hall to fill most of the minutes at center Sunday.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker has a right ankle sprain and is questionable for Sunday's game in Sacramento, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Maker didn't scored and played only eight minutes during Friday's win over the Suns, though that's presumably when he picked up the injury. The 23-year-old has totaled 14 minutes off the bench over the past two games after starting the previous six contests, so he may not see significant run even if he's available.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Minutes tail off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Double-double in ugly loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Best scoring output of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Set to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Goes scoreless Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and five rebounds in 15 minutes during Monday's 96-82 loss to Memphis.

Maker continues to do nothing for the Pistons and is currently just the 362nd-ranked player in standard leagues. At times, he has moved into a larger role with a number of injuries befalling the Pistons frontcourt. Despite that, he typically fails to even be considered in any fantasy format, let alone competitive leagues.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker will start Friday's matchup against the Raptors, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

Maker will bump Sekou Doumbouya from the starting five. Across six previous starts, Maker has averaged 7.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 19.2 minutes.

January 24, 2020 06:44 PM
Pistons' Thon Maker: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker will start Friday's game against the Grizzlies, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

With Andre Drummond (mouth) out, Maker will draw the start at center. In his four previous starts this season, he's averaged 5.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 block in 19.5 minutes.

January 23, 2020 12:00 PM
Pistons' Thon Maker: Notches first double-double of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker scored 10 points (1-2 FG, 0-0 3PT, 8-11 FT) and added 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 127-106 win over Sacramento.

Maker made his first start in a month while also logging more than 20 minutes for just the second time in that span. He drew numerous fouls on the way to his first double-double of the season, as eight of his points came from the free-throw line.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Joins starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker is starting Wednesday against the Kings, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Maker will join the starting lineup Wednesday in place of the injured Andre Drummond (mouth). When seeing 20 or more minutes this season (six games), Maker is averaging 6.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 assist in 22.7 minutes.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Back to reduced role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker was a DNP-CD in Monday's loss to the Wizards.

It was Maker's first DNP since late-November, and it's a further indication that the Pistons don't have much use for the former first-round pick -- even in the wake of Blake Griffin's latest knee injury. Prior to Monday, Maker had played just 13 combined minutes in Detroit's last three contests.

Pistons' Thon Maker: Coming off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker will come off the bench Thursday against the Wizards, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

Maker drew the start in the previous game because Drummond missed the team's morning shootaround. Both players will resume their usual roles Thursday.

December 23, 2019 06:40 PM
Pistons' Thon Maker: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker is in the starting lineup for Monday's contest against Philadelphia, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

Andre Drummond missed shootaround Monday morning, so Maker will get the start in his place. The center is currently averaging 3.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 28 appearances this season.

December 17, 2019 04:12 AM
Pistons' Thon Maker: Does nothing in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maker had just four points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes during Monday's 133-119 loss to Washington.

Maker remained in the starting lineup with Andre Drummond (eye) ruled out prior to tipoff. Despite the promotion, Maker failed to come through with any sort of relevant fantasy production. Drummond could return for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, a move that would likely see Maker shift back to a minimal role.
