Corey Maggette: Out one month after wrist surgery

 

I was just watching NBA tv and on the NBA News bar at the bottom of the screen it says Corey Maggette is out one month after having wrist surgery. Obviously him being out over the summer does not really affect us, but it has to make one wonder how injury prone he will be the next few years.

Last year he was hampered by various injuries, especially his hamstrings. If that was the only time he has missed time due to injury I would just ignore it, last season was a throw away season anyways, but he has NEVER played a full season. In his ten year career he has played 640 of 820 games (not including playoffs), thats 78% of the time. A very notable point is that Maggette has never played real major minutes, only 3 seasons with more then 35 minutes a game and a career average of less then 29.3 minutes per game.

I find it very hard to believe this is going to get any better as he ages. Unfortunately his contract is also getting bigger.

I like Maggette's ability to score and respect him for willingly coming off the bench last year, but I don't think he is a benefit to our team at this point and his injury woes really bother me. Not even going to get into the fact that he kills all ball movement. Imagine paying him 10 million a year in a few years to play 25 or so minutes 50 games a year.
