Maggette to undergo knee surgery Thursday

LOS ANGELES -- Clippers swingman Corey Maggette was scheduled to undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee
Thursday.

The Clippers said Wednesday the operation will be done to
alleviate the intermittent pain Maggette suffered in his knee
during the season. Although bothersome, the condition did not cause
Maggette to miss playing time.

Clippers team physician Dr. Tony Daly, assisted by Dr. Steven
Shimoyama, was set to perform the surgery at the Center for
Ambulatory Surgical Treatment in suburban Westwood.

Maggette averaged 16.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists in
75 games this season.
