Rodney Stuckey Could Return Tonight

by March 19, 2010

After missing six games due to a mysterious collapse on the court, the Pistons’ coach says his point guard is apparently ready to make his return. From the Free Press: “Rodney Stuckey and Ben Wallace were full participants in Thursday’s workout at the practice facility, and coach John Kuester is cautiously optimistic that both would be available for the game. Kuester said both players looked good, but because they have missed so much time, they will come off the bench whenever they return. ‘With both of those guys, they’ll come off the bench,’ Kuester said after Thursday’s practice. ‘They’ve been out the past two weeks, or close to two weeks for Stuckey, and that’s what we’re going to do right now.’ Stuckey has missed six games since he collapsed and was carried from Quicken Loans Arena on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask during a loss at Cleveland on March 5. He has undergone a battery of tests looking for any potential life-threatening condition, but all tests have come back negative. He has been cleared to return to the team.”
