Bucks center Thon Maker will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s opener against the Celtics.
Maker is starting, but this doesn’t automatically equate to fantasy value. The big man started games at center last season and only averaged 13.7 minutes per game in those contests. Odds are that average goes up this this season, but the likes of Greg Monroe and John Henson are still around to make this situation muddy. The young center is still worth stashing in some leagues, due to his upside in blocks and boards, until we know how many minutes will be the norm this year.
