Rodney Stuckey dropped almost 10 pounds this summer.
He started a new diet eight months ago and stayed away from fatty foods. Stuckey is going to have to play behind the durable Monta Ellis, which makes him very unappealing in fantasy leagues. It'll also be interesting to see if he can make 3-pointers this year like he did last season. Sep 28 - 3:16 PM

The Pacers officially re-signed Rodney Stuckey to a three-year, $21 million deal on Tuesday.

Stuckey said he still envisions himself coming off the bench for the Pacers, as he's "most comfortable" playing in a sixth man role. His fantasy outlook isn't great with Paul George set to return from an injury that sidelined him for the majority of the 2014-15 season, and Monta Ellis now on the roster. At best, Stuckey isn't worth much more than a late-round flier in deep leagues for owners seeking some scoring and a free throw percentage booster.

Rodney Stuckey and the Pacers have agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal.

The third year is a player option and Pacers president Larry Bird was obviously serious when he said in mid-April, "I think it’s important for us to get [Stuckey] back here. We need guys like Rodney. He was a major plus for our franchise." Stuckey failed to provide much standard-league fantasy value in 26.4 minutes per game last season, and he's only worth a look in the final rounds for a handful of 3-pointers, assists and solid FT percentages.

Unrestricted free agent Rodney Stuckey is registering interest from the Cavs and the interest is mutual.

Stuckey would be a very interesting fit. Last season, he somehow increased his 3-point shooting by 10 percent from his previous career average. The Cavs really need shooters around LeBron to space the floor, so maybe a guy like J.R. Smith is a better fit. Stuckey has interest from the Bulls, Wizards, Rockets and of course the Kings. The Cavs probably won't be signing Stuckey.

Unrestricted free agent Rodney Stuckey is "very much a possibility" for the Wizards.

He is hoping to land on a contender and be the team's sixth man. With the Wizards losing out on Paul Pierce, they're going to need some extra help on the bench. Stuckey wouldn't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues with the Wizards, though.

Rodney Stuckey is interested in signing with the Bulls this offseason, sources told CSN Chicago.

Stuckey is also drawing interest from the Pacers, Rockets and Kings, but he's going to have to wait for the first wave of free agents to sign before any club gets really serious about bringing him in.

Rodney Stuckey is expected to have interest from the Pacers, Rockets and Kings.

While Stuckey didn't have a big season, he deserves a ton of credit for increasing his 3-point percentage to 39.0 in 2014-15. Stuckey somehow only made just 28.6 percent from deep before last season, so the increase should really help him earn some money in the NBA's 3-point/eFG%-friendly 2015. He still is unlikely to be an in-demand pick in fantasy leagues next season.

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.
