No Corey Maggette in Pistons opener tonight


Corey Maggette missed much of the preseason with a calf strain and it appears he won’t be ready to go in the season-opener tonight. From Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

He hopes to be back sometime near the end of the Pistons’ six-game Western road trip, which starts in Phoenix on Friday.

“It’s not a race, it’s a marathon and I hope I’ll be back soon,” Maggette said. “I’ll definitely make the trip. Me and Arnie Kander have things we’ll be working on it out there.”

Goodwill also noted that it is not yet known who the other player on the Pistons inactive list will be tonight.
