Many of you will remember that Maggette was the player the Pacers had decided to trade Ron Artest for, but then had second thoughts after hearing their Doctors opinions.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Corey Maggette played Friday night for the first time in 39 games when he returned from a foot injury in the Los Angeles Clippers' game at Utah.
Maggette had not played since Dec. 5 against Miami, when he separated a ligament in his left foot.
Maggette, who has averaged 21.7 points and 5.5 rebounds in 13 games this season, was cleared to resume practice Tuesday. He entered the game Friday late in the first period and closed the quarter with a reverse layup.
Clippers center Chris Kaman also returned Friday night after missing two games with a sprained left ankle.
