With Friday’s announcement that Henson is out indefinitely – his surgery could keep him out beyond the all-star break – Maker’s time has come to again prove himself as a capable part of the Bucks’ rotation. He didn’t want his latest chance to come due to an injury to any of his teammate, but the third-year center knows how much the Bucks are counting on him to consistently perform as their backup center. “Every single time I check in I got to find a way to give us a boost,” Maker said. “It’s unfortunate with John’s situation, but he said the same thing. He just said, ‘You’re up. It’s your opportunity. Just go out there and show the world what you’re made of.’”
