CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Bobcats are shutting down forward Corey Maggette for the season.
The injury-plagued Maggette will miss the remaining 10 games 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 that injury, but returned to play in the Bobcats' last three contests in a reserve role.
Coach Paul Silas hoped Maggette would become the team's veteran leader this season, but Maggette appeared in just 32 games. He averaged 15 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game in his first year in Charlotte. Maggette missed 19 games with a left hamstring injury and one with a lower back contusion earlier this year.
The Bobcats (7-49) host Detroit Thursday night.
