Asked how he felt about his role as sixth man, Corey Maggette made clear Monday during a post-practice interview that he didn't care for the question.
"I ain't no sixth man," he interrupted, emphatically.
"I know it's for precautionary reasons. That's just how doctors are," Maggette said. "But I feel like I can do what I've got to do.
"Hopefully by the next game [tonight against Milwaukee] or the game after that, I should be back in the [starting] lineup.
"There's no reason why I shouldn't be back in there unless they're trying to make some changes, which I won't like. My role is to go out there and play basketball, and not as a bench player."
