Report: Thon Maker injures wrist
The sky is falling!
Bucks rookie Thon Maker suffered sprained right wrist in opening practice Tues. and was sent back to Milwaukee to be evaluated.— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) September 28, 2016
After Khris Middleton was lost for the season before camp even started, the last thing the Bucks need is for a highly-touted prospect to miss valuable development time. Fortunately, Charles Gardner followed up with this update:
Maker did not take part in Wednesday morning practice but could return to team later in day. Bucks have two sessions today at UW.— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) September 28, 2016
Hopefully this sprain is nothing serious and Thon makes it back with the team shortly.
John Stockton accepts Kidd’s invitation
Much and more has been made of Milwaukee’s $100 Million Greek, and it appears that the organization is pulling out all the stops to get Giannis as much knowledge and point guard perspective as possible:
Kidd on Stockton helping the Bucks guards: "We have Malcolm and Delly. And I told him we have a pretty big point guard, too."— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) September 28, 2016
If you don’t know who John Stockton is, feel free to do some Googling in another window and enjoy the show. Antetokoumpo is still mastering the finer points of the position, but having two All-Timers helping shape his knowledge is only a good thing for the Point Giannis Experience.
