Rodney Stuckey will participate in a veteran's mini-camp with the Trail Blazers this summer.
Stuckey sat out the 2017-18 season to get his body right physically after a couple of injury-plagued seasons, but he never planned on retiring. He might be able to snag a minimum-level deal somewhere, but the 32-year-old veteran won't have any fantasy value, regardless of where he winds up. Jun 10 - 2:32 PM

Rodney Stuckey is sitting out the 2017-18 campaign but said he plans to make an NBA comeback next season.

Stuckey was waived by the Pacers last season, but is not yet ready to call it quits. "I definitely have a lot of time left in my body," said Stuckey, 31, who averaged 12.6 points and 3.6 assists per game in 10 NBA seasons. "It was just important for me mentally and physically to give my body a rest. I can get back after it next year, and I know I can play another two to three years. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to do that and then still feel young and be able to run around with my own kids in retirement."

Free agent guard Rodney Stuckey will begin meeting with teams on Tuesday according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Stuckey was waived by the Pacers in March after suffering a strained left patellar tendon, but he's been "fully healthy" training this summer. The 31-year-old veteran averaged a career-low 7.2 points per game last season and shot under 40 percent from the field for the first time in his career. He's likely looking to join a contender and may have to settle for the veteran's minimum.

Mark Medina of the Orange County Register is reporting that the Lakers have "shown interest" in free agent Rodney Stuckey.

The two sides have had preliminary discussions but have yet to schedule a formal meeting. Stuckey is coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged career-lows across the board. He also suffered a strained left patellar tendon late last season. Nonetheless, he can provide a steady veteran presence which the Lakers need and he also seems willing to sign a one-year deal, which is the Lakers preference, as they are determined to keep their cap space open for next summer's free agency period.

The Pacers will reportedly waive Rodney Stuckey (knee) on Wednesday.

Stuckey will be injured throughout the postseason, and the Pacers need healthy bodies for a playoff run, so Stuckey gets the ax after only managing to suit up for 39 games for the Pacers this season. Additionally, with Indiana getting him off the books prior to April 10, Stuckey will no longer have a player option of $7 million for next season, so he'll need to find his next contract via free agency.

Rodney Stuckey (left patellar tendon strain) is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Stuckey sustained the injury in Sunday night’s victory over Philadelphia. With less than three weeks left in the regular season, we have seen the last of Stuckey. He should be on waivers in all fantasy leagues. 2016-17 was a frustrating and injury-filled campaign Stuckey. He'll finish the season having appeared in just 39 games. Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles will see additional minutes with Stuckey on the shelf.

Rodney Stuckey (knee) is officially being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Stuckey left Sunday's game with a sore knee, but we should have a better idea on his status for Tuesday night once the results of his MRI are made public. If Stuckey can't give it a go on Tuesday, Monta Ellis and Aaron Brooks would have the opportunity for some extra minutes.

Rodney Stuckey's (knee) status for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves is up in the air.

He left Sunday's game against the 76ers due to a sore left knee and wasn't able to return. "We haven’t taken X-rays yet," McMillan said on Sunday night. "He was walking a little better coming off the floor. I’m sure [the training staff] will give me an update tomorrow." Stuckey will undergo an MRI on Monday afternoon, and if he misses time, both Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles could see a bump in minutes.

Rodney Stuckey (knee) left Sunday's game against the 76ers due to a sore knee and he was unable to return.

With the Pacers up by a considerable margin, it's uncertain if Stuckey was unavailable due to the severity of his injury or if he was just rested since the game was well out of reach. If Stuckey misses any time it's good news for Aaron Brooks. Stuckey finished with just two points on 1-of-8 shooting before departing.

Rodney Stuckey was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Coach Nate McMillan changed his rotation and went with Aaron Brooks over Stuckey for today. He mentioned this before the game, so maybe it sticks in the short term. Although, not winning today probably isn't going to help. Leave Stuckey on the wire.
Wed, Mar 22, 2017 10:50:00 PM

Rodney Stuckey scored 17 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 22 minutes vs. the Rockets on Monday.

It was his best game in a while and he took advantage of some extra touches with Paul George in foul trouble. Stuckey has been hurt for most of the season and competes for touches in a crowded wing rotation, so he can be left on the wire in standard leagues unless he does this a couple more times. He averaged 8.4 points per game in February coming into tonight's game.

Rodney Stuckey came off the bench and played 21 minutes on Monday, finishing a 110-106 loss to the Spurs with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

Stuckey hadn't scored this many points since Dec. 12 and was helped by the fact the Pacers were missing Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) tonight. Stuckey was helpful to the Pacers tonight, but once they're back at full strength, he's not someone you'll want to mess with in fantasy leagues.

Rodney Stuckey played through a sprained ankle and hit 2-of-6 shots and 5-of-5 free throws for nine points and one assist in 14 minutes on Monday.

He'd missed three of his previous four games with the injury, but healthy or not, his role in the Pacers' offense is not a fantasy-friendly one.

Rodney Stuckey (ankle) will be available to play Monday vs. the Thunder.

If he's able to get out there tonight, he'll likely be working with a strict minutes limit considering all the injuries he's dealt with this season. Stuckey isn't a realistic fantasy target in most settings.
Mon, Feb 6, 2017 06:25:00 PM

Rodney Stuckey (ankle) is a game-time call against the Thunder on Monday.

Stuckey has played in just two games since Dec. 14 and has battled through three different injuries to his leg. If he's cleared to play Monday, expect his workload to be monitored. Glenn Robinson III and Monta Ellis will pick up the slack if Stuckey is out again, but there's not much fantasy appeal here.
