Larry Bird said that he hopes to bring back Rodney Stuckey next season.
"I think it’s important for us to get [Stuckey] back here," said Bird. "We need guys like Rodney. He was a major plus for our franchise." The disparity in the way Bird talks about Stuckey and Roy Hibbert could be viewed as insulting by Hibbert's side, and it'll be very interesting to see if Hibbert decides to pick up his player option next season for a team that has basically said they could care less if that happens. Head coach Frank Vogel said that if Stuckey does decide to return, he envisions him playing the Sixth Man role off the bench, which is fine by Stuckey. Apr 17 - 3:05 PM

Rodney Stuckey made 10-of-17 from the field for 24 points during a 107-103 win against the Pistons on Friday, adding two assists, one steal and three 3-pointer.

Ah, sweet revenge. Stuckey really stepped up in a big game for his team to keep the Pacers just one game behind the Celtics and Nets for a playoff spot. They'll get a big game at home against Russell Westbrook and the Thunder. Stuckey is worth a look, but he's certainly a risky play.
Apr 11 - 12:54 AM

Rodney Stuckey returned to action on Wednesday against the Knicks on Wednesday with seven points, six boards, one assist and one 3-pointer.

The return of Paul George could be a factor here, but Stuckey is just not someone to trust in fantasy leagues right now. He does get some credit for having two terrific runs earlier this season, though.
Apr 9 - 2:08 AM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) went through practice on Tuesday, and he expects to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

If he is able to go on Wednesday, he'll get a favorable matchup against the Knicks, and he could see some extra playing time with C.J. Watson (elbow) looking unlikely. That being said, Stuckey is clearly not 100 percent, and this injury is to his shooting wrist, so he'll be a risky option even if he's in uniform.
Apr 7 - 3:02 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) expects to play vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

He had his wrist wrapped and obviously isn't 100 percent healthy, but with a few days off and a playoff berth in the balance it's unsurprising that he's aiming to play. He's a boom-or-bust fantasy option, especially while battling a wrist injury, so owners in standard leagues should proceed with caution.
Apr 5 - 10:24 PM

Rodney Stuckey will not be able to return to Sunday's game vs. the Heat due to a sore right wrist.

The Pacers were safely running away with this game, so it's possible that they were just being cautious. We will keep Stuckey on the injury report to be safe, but hopefully he will be good to go for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. If Stuckey has to miss any time, C.J. Miles and C.J. Watson (elbow) will benefit off the bench. Stuckey finished tonight's game with four points and seven assist in 25 minutes.
Apr 5 - 8:37 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) sat out shootaround, but he will play Friday vs. the Hornets.

Stuckey will fight through the pain for Friday's game, but with a tough matchup against the Hornets, he'll make for a risky option in daily leagues. C.J. Watson's value takes a bit of a hit with Stuckey in the rotation.
Apr 3 - 11:12 AM

Rodney Stuckey (sore right wrist) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

Stuckey was also listed as questionable for Wednesday's game, and ended up playing and scoring 16 points through 20 minutes of action off the bench. We'd expect him to give it a go on Friday, but owners will need to check back for another update closer to Friday's tip. If he's unable to go, C.J. Watson would be asked to do more on offense. Stay tuned.
Apr 2 - 2:26 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored 16 points off the bench in 20 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday with two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He was in pain during warmups due to an issue with his shooting wrist, but he still made 6-of-9 from the field tonight. Stuckey has suddenly become an efficient scorer and maybe he'll have more minutes on Friday against the Hornets. He's a borderline player to own in standard leagues.
Apr 1 - 11:33 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will "try to play" vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

Stuckey shot 1-of-8 from the field in 25 minutes on Tuesday and owners may want to shy away from him -- the injury is to his shooting wrist and coach Frank Vogel suggested that Stuckey is pretty banged up. He recently recovered from a calf injury and may only be suiting up because the Pacers are fighting for their playoff lives. If he is limited, expect more opportunities to open up for C.J. Watson and Damjan Rudez.
Apr 1 - 6:04 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He just got over a calf issue and he's now back on the injury report with an issue involving his shooting wrist. That may have explained why he made just 1-of-8 from the field on Tuesday. If he's out, C.J. Watson would likely be the sixth man while Damjan Rudez would also get more minutes.
Apr 1 - 3:12 PM

Rodney Stuckey (sore right wrist) notched four points (1-of-8 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes on Tuesday, and he started the second half in place of C.J. Miles (sprained ankle).

Stuckey recently came back from a calf injury and he's perpetually banged up, but the Pacers are scrapping for a playoff spot so it's not surprising that he'd play at less than 100 percent. His potential for offensive eruptions makes him a tantalizing fantasy option, especially if he starts on Wednesday, though he's been reduced to late-round value over the past 12 games with averages of 14.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting, 3.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.8 steals.
Mar 31 - 10:48 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Stuckey will draw a very favorable matchup against the Nets tonight, so make sure you have him on your active roster. C.J. Waton's value takes a hit with Stuckey active.
Mar 31 - 6:12 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Stuckey logged 30 minutes in Sunday's win over the Mavs while coming off a calf injury, but apparently he managed to add another injury in the process. If he's forced to sit out, C.J. Miles and C.J. Watson would both be the most direct beneficiaries.
Mar 30 - 1:57 PM

Rodney Stuckey (calf) logged 30 minutes during Sunday's much-needed win vs. Dallas, scoring 10 points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds and two assists.

He wasn't on a minute-limit and is safe to deploy whenever he's healthy, as the Pacers have given him a green-light to shoot with their second unit (he finished 4-of-14 from the field tonight). The second unit has proven to be a strength for Indiana this season -- their bench is averaging 41.0 points per game, second in the NBA behind only the Lakers. Stuckey's return stole some playing time from C.J. Miles (28 minutes), C.J. Watson (24 minutes) and especially Solomon Hill (14 minutes).
