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

Date:

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.
Jan 25 - 5:59 PM

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

He can't seem to find a role with the team and his minutes have been inconsistent in 2015. Stuckey also has made just 42.7 percent from the field in 2015 and he hasn't made a 3-pointer in any of his previous five games. He's not worth owning in standard leagues and will take a hit with George Hill coming back.
Jan 23 - 6:33 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored eight points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

It hasn’t been a great year for Stuckey with his new team. Coach Frank Vogel said Stuckey would be the engine of the offense in the preseason, but still hasn’t happened even without George Hill. In fact, his minutes and usage rate is down compared to last season while shooting only 41.9 percent from the field. He’s not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 9:41 PM

Rodney Stuckey will start against the Pistons on Friday.

Revenge game? Stuckey has been struggling recently and he's touching the ball a lot less these days. He's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:45 PM

Rodney Stuckey (food poisoning) shifted to a bench role vs. the Wolves on Tuesday, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 25 minutes.

Stuckey is averaging 26 minutes per game this season but hasn't been able to turn his playing time into fantasy production. With middling averages of 11.6 points on 41.5 percent shooting, 0.5 threes, 3.0 assists and 0.8 steals, he's best suited to the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.
Jan 13 - 10:19 PM

Rodney Stuckey (food poisoning) will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

While Stuckey has a favorable matchup tonight against Minnesota, he doesn't do much aside from score, and head coach Frank Vogel said that he will only play in short spurts off the bench. He's not looking like a great option in daily leagues.
Jan 13 - 5:20 PM

Rodney Stuckey (food poisoning) missed shootaround and is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

We'll have to check back on Stuckey's status closer to tip-off, but Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said Stuckey should be available. If Stuckey doesn't suit up, Donald Sloan, C.J. Watson, Chris Copeland, and C.J. Miles would all be in for a boost in minutes and fantasy value.

Rodney Stuckey (food poisoning) is questionable to play against the Wolves on Tuesday.

This is the second food-related issue for Stuckey in his career, so he's had some bad luck. There have been a ton of illnesses in the NBA this season and Stuckey's status is unclear. Regardless, he's not playing well and shouldn't be owned in most leagues. If he's out, Donald Sloan, C.J. Watson, Chris Copeland and C.J. Miles will benefit.
Jan 12 - 3:00 PM

Rodney Stuckey played 35 minutes against the 76ers during a 93-92 loss on Saturday with 13 points, nine rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He could see a little more playing time while C.J. Miles (eye) is out, but there is no indication that he'll miss much time. Even so, Stuckey's game just isn't cut out for fantasy hoops, so he can be safely left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:21 PM

Rodney Stuckey (groin) played 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with six points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He only missed one game with the groin strain and he looked fine out there tonight. On the other hand, Stuckey's per-minute averages for fantasy are just not there and he's making just just 41.3 percent from the field on the season. He can be left on the wire in standard leagues and is losing some momentum in points leagues, as well.
Jan 9 - 11:30 PM

Rodney Stuckey (groin) is available to play against the Celtics on Friday.

He said he just rested on Wednesday and apparently he was telling the truth. Stuckey hasn't played well in the past couple weeks, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Donald Sloan is also not a good play in fantasy tonight.
Jan 9 - 5:07 PM

Rodney Stuckey (groin) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Friday.

He downplayed the injury and said he didn't play Wednesday because he thought the rest would help. Stuckey has dealt with a litany of injuries this season and he's only shooting 41.3 percent from the field, so he's a tough hold in standard leagues. If he's out, Donald Sloan will get more run, especially after a strong showing in the past week.
Jan 8 - 9:17 PM

Rodney Stuckey (sore right groin) sat out Wednesday's game "to rest [the injury] more than anything," according to beat writer Candace Buckner.

It sounds like Stuckey could return to the starting lineup vs. Boston on Friday, though owners should hedge their bets on the oft-injured shooting guard. He's averaging 11.8 points on 41.3 percent shooting this season, and doesn't contribute enough 3-pointers, assists or steals to have value in standard-sized leagues.
