As the Bucks find that Thon Maker is the five fo the future for them at the five spot, Greg Monroe has seen his minutes dip a little this season, down to 15 a night.

Actually, they are going to drop to zero for the next couple of weeks, and the reason they are down overall is a tweaked knee he has battled all season. Now he will get a chance to rest it. Via Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel.

That means more John Henson, which is not a bad thing (the Bucks are deep at the five), and the best part is we will get to see a little more Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five, which will be fascinating.
