Corey Maggette hopes to play during Pistons' upcoming road trip

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Pistons' Corey Maggette hopes to return from a strained calf before the end of the Pistons' six-game road trip.

Injured Detroit Piston Corey Maggette is improving and hopes to return from a strained calf sometime during the Pistons' upcoming six-game road trip.

Maggette missed the final three games of the preseason, as well as the Pistons season opening 105-96 loss to the Houston Rockets. Maggette took part in Wednesday's morning shootaround, as well as Thursday's practice. He said the calf is doing better and "each day there's improvement. No setbacks. That's a positive thing." Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said Maggette is day-to-day and was unsure if he would play during Detroit's nine-day road trip.

The Pistons acquired Maggette in an offseason trade that sent Ben Gordon to the Charlotte Bobcats. Maggette has averaged 16.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game over the first 13 years of his NBA career. Last season in Charlotte, Maggette was limited to 32 games and averaged 15.0 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.
