Rodney Stuckey cooled off on Tuesday, scoring five points on 2-of-8 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes vs. OKC.
He appeared to tweak his foot or ankle during a drive early in the game, but walked it off and wasn't limited in the second half. Stuckey was shooting an unrealistic 60.3 percent in his previous five games and owners shouldn't be shocked by tonight's dropoff -- the good news is that he chipped in enough boards and assists to salvage some value, and appears to have avoided any lasting injury.

Date:

Rodney Stuckey (ankle) blew up for 30 points in 28 minutes off the bench vs. Golden State, draining 11-of-17 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with two 3-pointers, four boards, five assists and one steal.

It was a surprise just to see Stuckey playing after his scary ankle injury on Friday, yet he stayed red-hot and is now shooting a combined 41-of-68 over his past five games (60.3 percent). He's not known as a shooter and won't keep up this torrid pace for long, and his minutes may wane with George Hill, C.J. Watson and C.J. Miles all healthy. That said, owners should plug Stuckey into all lineups and enjoy the solid production while it lasts.
Feb 22 - 8:53 PM

Updating a previous report, Rodney Stuckey (ankle) is a go for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

Stuckey will draw a difficult matchup against the Warriors today, but it's a positive sign that the ankle injury he suffered on Friday against the 76ers will not cause him to miss any time. He'll look to keep his momentum going after scoring 30 points on Friday, and he's worth a look if he's still available on your waiver wire.
Feb 22 - 5:05 PM

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel said that Rodney Stuckey (ankle) will try to play Sunday vs. the Warriors.

Stuckey is coming off a 30-point outing, and he'll try to keep his momentum going on Sunday with a tough matchup against the Warriors. Owners will want to check back for an official update on Stuckey's status closer to tip-off, and if he's unable to go there will be more minutes for C.J Watson and C.J Miles. Stay tuned.
Feb 22 - 4:23 PM

Rodney Stuckey (ankle) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Sunday.

He said he was going to be fine after his ankle sprain, which was a surprise based on how bad it looked. We would still be a little surprised to see him play based on how he couldn't put any weight on his foot following the injury. If he's out, expect to see more of C.J. Watson, C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill on the wing.
Feb 21 - 3:59 PM

Rodney Stuckey suffered a sprained left ankle on Friday and will not return.

He went up for a jumper and came down awkwardly. After remaining on the floor for a couple minutes, Stuckey needed assistance to the locker room and couldn't put any weight on his left foot. He was playing extremely well tonight, finishing with 30 points, two rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers. He should be considered doubtful for Sunday right now. C.J. Watson and Solomon Hill benefit the most.
Feb 20 - 9:18 PM

Rodney Stuckey hit 7-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points and one assist in just 13 minutes off the bench for the Pacers on Wednesday.

He was dealing with leg problem, which is why he played so few minutes, but as long as he's not starting for the Pacers, he'll be a tough start for fantasy owners. He did come in hot, though, but had also started in the last several games for Indy.
Feb 12 - 12:44 AM

Rodney Stuckey asked to come out of Wednesday's game due to a back or leg injury, but he is expected to be fine.

He was having a fantastic game, scoring 12 points on 5-of-6 from the field in eight minutes. Stuckey has a groin issue earlier this season and maybe he aggravated it, or he also had back problems back in 2012. We'll see how he looks the rest of the way.
Feb 11 - 8:49 PM

Rodney Stuckey played 35 minutes against the Spurs on Monday with 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

It's his second start in a row and he played well with 15 points on Sunday. Still, Stuckey's averages in his starts leave a lot to be desired, averaging 11.9 points, 3.9 boards, 3.7 dimes, 0.8 steals and 0.5 treys on 44.0 percent from the field. Most owners can leave him on the wire.
Feb 9 - 11:48 PM

Rodney Stuckey started Sunday's game after a one-game move to the bench, scoring 15 points on 6-of-12 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in a comeback win vs. the Hornets.

Stuckey's starting job hasn't translated to reliable value and he's averaging a mere 6.8 points and 7.3 shot attempts over the past four games. Given his lack of 3-point range and defensive stats, he belongs on the waiver wire as long as C.J. Miles and George Hill are both healthy.
Feb 8 - 9:48 PM

Rodney Stuckey will come off the bench against the Cavs on Friday.

He only played 20.5 minutes per game in his last two and it has a lot do to with George Hill receiving more playing time. Stuckey can be dropped in most leagues.
Feb 6 - 6:30 PM

Rodney Stuckey slowed down against the Kings on Saturday during a 99-94 loss with two points, two rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.

He had a couple big games this week, but he was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. The more George Hill and C.J. Miles play, the less likely Stuckey will be able to produce. He can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 31 - 10:12 PM

Rodney Stuckey was terrific against the Knicks on Thursday during 103-82 victory with 22 points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

That's back-to-back 22-point games from Stuckey. He's making the most of the Pacers backcourt dealing with leg injuries, but it's only a matter of time until he cools off. Stuckey doesn't get steals, hit treys and he's inefficient, so he'll need to stay very hot in points and dimes to be a top-125 guy.
Jan 29 - 10:34 PM

Rodney Stuckey finished another start on Tuesday with 22 points, seven rebounds and two assists, making 8-of-16 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws in a team-high 39 minutes.

Stuckey has received more minutes and touches than normal due to C.J. Miles' absence the past two games, something owners should bear in mind when evaluating him as a pickup. George Hill's minutes will eventually creep north of 20 per game, further restricting Stuckey's upside, and there should be free agents with better long-term outlooks on most waiver wires.
Jan 27 - 9:48 PM

Rodney Stuckey will slide into the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. Orlando with C.J. Miles (groin) unavailable.

Stuckey is a rather one-dimensional player, so he makes for a better option in points leagues. He's averaging 11.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.2 assists as a starter for the Pacers.
