Corey Maggette to miss rest of seasonPosted by Inside Hoops
Charlotte Bobcats forward Corey Maggette will miss the remainder of the 2011-12 season due to the continued strain in his right Achilles tendon that he initially suffered on March 30 against Denver. He missed a total of four games with the Achilles strain from March 31-April 6, but did come back to play in the Bobcats’ last three contests in a reserve role.
Maggette appeared in 32 games this season with averages of 15.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists, while connecting on .856 from the free-throw line. In January, he missed 19 consecutive games with a left hamstring injury and one with a lower back contusion.
Maggette was acquired by the Bobcats from Milwaukee as part of three-team trade in which the team also received the draft rights to Bismack Biyombo from Sacramento in exchange for sending Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston and the draft rights to Tobias Harris to Milwaukee on June 23, 2011.
