Thon Maker Last 10 Games
Thon Maker News
Detroit Pistons center Thon Maker was not extended a qualifying offer by the organization. The former 10th overall selection during the 2016 NBA Draft has been unable to live up to expectations. He wasn't able to make much of an impact during his 60 games in Detroit last season. The Pistons have decided to move on and Maker isn't expected to have a big market value. Maybe, he'll get a bench spot somewhere, but it's unlikely going to be significant enough to draft him in fantasy leagues.
Detroit Pistons power forward/center Thon Maker (foot) has been listed as probable to play in Wednesdays contest versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. Maker missed Sundays game, but had seen his role take a significant downturn over the last two contests that he was available to participate in. John Henson appears to have jumped Maker in the teams rotation for the time being, limiting his fantasy outlook, even in DFS. The relative lack of depth in the Pistons frontcourt could ultimately pave a route for Maker to again become a fantasy option, but owners are best served waiting for his minutes to trend upward before diving back in.
Detroit Pistons center Thon Maker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. He saw six minutes during Tuesday's game and then eight minutes during Friday's contest. Possibly, the right ankle issue is the reason why he's not playing much. His fantasy value is heading in the wrong direction, but he could see more minutes with Christian Wood (foot) questionable on Sunday. However, it seems unlikely that Maker would see enough minutes to warrant ownership in most formats. Sekou Doumbouya or even John Henson are better fantasy options than Maker.
Detroit Pistons forward Thon Maker compiled 18 points, two rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal during 27 minutes in the 116-112 overtime loss to the Magic on Wednesday. Maker is making a run at fantasy relevance, and this marks the third time in four games that the 22-year-old has scored in double digits. He has only scored in double digits six times this season before this current mini hot streak. Of course, the former Buck is just one of the few beneficiaries of Andre Drummond leaving the team. Though Maker should be on the fantasy radar, wait a few more games just to make sure he is developing the type of consistency a solid fantasy player should display. Nevertheless, the third-year player could reach fantasy relevance after the All-Star break, in part due to Detroit's lack of a true center and the fact thatBlake Griffin (knee) is out for the season.
