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.
Maker will be active for Monday's game against the Knicks, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Maker was somewhat of a surprise inactive for each of Milwaukee's first two games, but he'll be an option off the bench for coach Mike Budenholzer on Monday. Christian Wood will join D.J. Wilson as the Bucks' two inactives.
