Pistons Corey Maggette listed as day-to-day with a calf strain

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit head coach Lawrence Frank said Maggette left the Pistons' Oct. 18 game at Miami in crutches, but wasn't using them the following day.

Veteran forward Corey Maggette left late in the first quarter of the Pistons' 105-78 loss against the Heat Oct. 18 with a calf strain, and is listed as day-to-day. He played for a bit over two minutes, leaving after landing awkwardly after a shot. Magette is averaging eight points and 1.8 rebounds a game in 14.3 minutes for Detroit (2-3) this preseason.

His status for Saturday's game against the Bobcats in Detroit isn't known.

"The good thing is he went off the arena on crutches and today there was no crutches," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank told MLive.com. "So that's a positive. It's one of those things we'll evaluate on a day-to-day basis."

Maggette spend the 2010-11 season in Charlotte and was acquired by Detroit this offseason in a trade for Ben Gordon. Detroit received a first-round draft pick from Charlotte in the deal.

The rebuilding Pistons have struggled at times this preseason, looking to solidify a young roster. Maggette has been a positive for them so far, providing valuable minutes as the team's oldest player at 32 years of age.

The Pistons tip off against Charlotte at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at the Palace at Auburn Hills.
