Miami HEAT two-way player Yante Maten dominated the NBA G League in his rookie campaign. Though his professional debut was filled with impressive stat lines and league recognition, Maten’s season didn’t come without adversity. A right ankle injury caused him to miss 15 games, putting a pause on what was shaping up to be an MVP-worthy year. Still, Maten appeared in 30 total games this season and averaged some of the most impressive numbers in Skyforce franchise history.
