Rodney Stuckey will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.
There has been no reason given on his status and it might just be rest. Stuckey finished the season on a high note with some solid scoring performances, but his game just doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is starting tonight. Apr 16 - 7:45 PM

Rodney Stuckey started again on Friday vs. the Bulls during a 106-98 loss, scoring 22 points with one board, one assist, one steal and no turnovers in 32 minutes.

He did not take any 3-pointers tonight, which has been a big reason why Stuckey hasn't made much of a splash in fantasy leagues from an overall value standpoint. Josh Smith (knee) doesn't have a timetable to return, so Stuckey could be able to score in the high teens the rest of the way with little else.
Apr 12 - 1:06 AM

Rodney Stuckey drew his second consecutive start during an ugly 122-100 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday, making 4-of-14 from the field for 15 points with two boards, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

This is a typical line from Stuckey with poor field goal shooting, no triples and a solid effort at the line with a 7-of-7 line from there. Josh Smith is day-to-day with his knee injury, so Stuckey figures to get at least one more game with the first unit. His lack of diversity in the stat sheet makes him a fringe play in standard leagues.
Apr 9 - 9:44 PM

Rodney Stuckey hit 8-of-17 shots, a 3-pointer and 12-of-14 free throws for 29 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in Tuesday's win.

He started with Josh Smith being a late scratch and came through in a big way. The 29 points ties his season and high and he had 26 in his previous game. Starting or not, it looks like Stuckey is determined to finish an ugly season on a positive note.
Apr 8 - 10:23 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored 26 points during Saturday's 115-111 win over the Celtics to go with four boards, four assists, one steal and four turnovers.

The Pistons do not have Will Bynum (ankle) in the lineup right now and it's been mostly Stuckey handling the ball with the second unit. He has attempted at least 12 shots per game this month and also is a combined 15-of-17 from the line, but he's still not going to have much fantasy value outside of scoring for owners in standard leagues.
Apr 5 - 10:26 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored just four points on Monday, hitting 2-of-5 shots with no other stats besides two turnovers in 20 minutes.

Despite the win against the league's worst team by record, the Pistons have mailed in their season and fringe fantasy guys like Stuckey can have trouble with that sort of thing. If you picked him up during his hot streak it's safe to move on.
Mar 31 - 11:51 PM

Rodney Stuckey came off the bench on Wednesday and hit just 2-of-10 shots for six points and two assists in 32 minutes.

Stuckey had been on a scoring tear earlier in the season, but is struggling for consistency again. He's scored 6, 19, 6 and 23 points in each of his last four games, so start him at your own risk.
Mar 26 - 11:57 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Stuckey was helped by the fact that Brandon Jennings played just 14 minutes due to foul trouble and ineffectiveness, but he's been productive scoring lately so give him a look if you need help in that department. Will Bynum added eight points, four rebounds, nine assists and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench, too. He has similar issues with versatility but if you're looking for points and assists is also worth a look.
Mar 22 - 2:28 AM

Rodney Stuckey got a start at shooting guard on Wednesday and hit 8-of-17 shots for 18 points, and two steals in 37 minutes.

He did most of his damage in the first half and then cooled off. As long as Stuckey's getting his 30-plus minutes a night, he has the ability to score. He's scored between 18 and 23 points in three of his last four games, but was 0-for-6 and had zero points in the dud, which happened a week ago tonight. He should continue to start until Andre Drummond is back from his neck injury, and could even stick around in the first unit once Drummond returns.
Mar 20 - 1:15 AM

Rodney Stuckey will start against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

The Pistons will bump Greg Monroe to center, Josh Smith to power forward and Kyle Singler to small forward with Andre Drummond (back) out. Stuckey moving into the starting lineup is interesting and he's actually had a solid usage rate of 22.2 when he plays next to Brandon Jennings. That's not quite the 29.1 without Jennings, but it's enough to suggest he should be busy tonight.
Mar 19 - 7:43 PM

Rodney Stuckey is a leading candidate to start in place of Andre Drummond (neck) Wednesday night.

Interim coach John Loyer confirmed that he will kick Greg Monroe to center and Josh Smith to power forward while Andre Drummond (neck) is out. We'd also expect Singler to move to his natural small forward spot, opening the shooting guard job up for either Stuckey or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Stuckey has been a far bigger part of the rotation lately.
Mar 19 - 4:08 PM

Rodney Stuckey hit 6-of-17 shots for 19 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Pacers.

He has been a mess lately, scoring 23 points on March 11, zero on Wednesday, and totaling just 13 points in four of his last six games. But he's played pretty well in two of his last three and could be ready to turn it on again off the Pistons bench.
Mar 15 - 11:00 PM

Rodney Stuckey went scoreless in 26 minutes on Wednesday after missing all six of his field goal attempts.

Stuckey added just three assists and a rebound to his stat line and showed why we don't overvalue things like his 23-point performance against the defenseless Kings on Tuesday. He's scored eight or less points in four of his last five games.
Mar 12 - 11:18 PM

Rodney Stuckey got loose for 23 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer Tuesday, hitting 6-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer in the win.

Stuckey had scored a total of 13 points over his previous three games, so we would not be surprised to hear that he was on your bench, or left off your daily roster. Brandon Jennings and Will Bynum both struggled tonight, and Stuckey was there to pick up the slack with one of his better lines of the season.
Mar 11 - 10:50 PM

Rodney Stuckey didn't play in the second half of Friday's game, as coach John Loyer "just decided to go with" rookie SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Kyle Singler, Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings also sat out the fourth quarter, but Stuckey's absence throughout the entire half was more glaring. There are no indications that Stuckey is injured and he should resume playing 25+ minutes vs. the Celtics on Sunday, but we'll be keeping a close eye on Detroit's rotations.
