While the playing status of guard Ron Howard remains questionable, the Mad Ants confirmed Wednesday that Indiana Pacers center Miles Plumlee will be in Fort Wayne when the Ants face Maine on Thursday.
It will be the first home game for the Ants since a Jan. 5 victory over Santa Cruz.
Plumlee will make his 12th appearance with the Ants (12-14), for whom he averages 12.8 points and 11.2 rebounds.
Howard will be listed as a game-time decision. The 6-5 guard injured his knee three minutes into the game at Bakersfield, Calif. and has not played since.
Maine (17-10) is the co-leader in the NBA D-League's East Division.
