Maggette out for the season with wrist injury

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – Los Angeles Clippers forward Corey Maggette
will miss the final five games of the season because of a wrist injury.

Maggette was examined by hand specialist Dr. Roy Mills at the UCLA Medical
Center and the diagnosis was a torn ligament in his left wrist. He will wear a
cast for two weeks and then be re-evaluated.

The 25-year-old Maggette is leading the Clippers in scoring with a 22.2
points-per-game average. He played in 66 contests this season and also posted
averages of 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per outing.

In other news, head coach Mike Dunleavy has taken a personal leave of absence
to attend to family matters. Assistant coach Jim Eyen will guide Los Angeles
in Tuesday’s home game against the Utah Jazz.
