As the back up point guard, Maynor was averaging just over 15 minutes a night and 4.2 points and 2.4 assists per game this season. Rookie Reggie Jackson will likely step into the majority of Maynor's minutes for the remainder of the season.
Jackson was selected by the Thunder with the No. 24 pick in the first round of the 2011 draft out of Boston College. He has played in three regular season games this season and is averaging 2.3 points per game.
