Rodney Stuckey G IND 23 Hrs

Stuckey had 22 points (8-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, and two assists in 39 minutes as the starting shooting guard Tuesday.

Stuckey's scoring has been up and down this month, with eight games in double figures and six games in single digits. Overall, he's a middle tier option at shooting guard that'll turn in games like Tuesday, but is a risk to throw in a dud on a given night as well.

Stuckey will start at shooting guard against the Magic on Sunday, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Stuckey has moved in and out of the starting lineup all season and Sunday's starting nod is just another iteration of that trend. He's averaged 25.0 minutes on the court over his past three games but may be in store for a slight increase in that number Sunday.

Stuckey came off the bench to score nine points (1-3 FG) and add two rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 34 minutes against the Heat Friday.

Even though Stuckey moved back to the bench for Friday's game, he saw extra minutes when CJ Miles (groin) left the game during the first quarter. Despite the extra opportunity, Stuckey's box score was very similar to his past several. Stuckey will continue to be a regular part of the Pacers' rotation even if Miles is healthy, but Friday was a missed opportunity.

Stuckey will come off the bench Friday, Fox Sports Indiana's Jeremiah Johnson reports.

C.J. Miles will get the start Friday, after outplaying Stuckey over the last two games. When Stuckey gets 30-plus minutes, he does enough to warrant ownership in mid-sized leagues, but he hasn't seen 30 minutes in a game since Jan. 10, so it may be time to look elsewhere, especially in shallower leagues.

Stuckey returned to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Pistons. He scored nine points (3-8 FG, 3-3 FT), grabbed five rebounds, and added five assists in 24 minutes.

Stuckey came off the bench Tuesday, but played one minute more than he did as a starter Friday. The injured Pacers backcourt relies heavily on Stuckey, and as long as he is active he is likely to see significant minutes. He doesn't score much, but he's a decent option for managers looking for rebounds from the guard position, or those in need of assists.

Stuckey (illness) had 13 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds in 25 minutes in the loss to Minnesota on Tuesday.

Stuckey missed practice on Monday, but played his usual complement of minutes. He wasn't able to slow down Mo Williams (52 points), but had a nice shooting performance and could be a decent deep-league add while George Hill (groin) remains out.

Stuckey (illness) will play Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

He missed Monday's practice and Tuesday's shootaround with food poisoning, but will fight through his illness to play against Minnesota. Stuckey, by default, should get plenty of time in the Pacers' backcourt and should be deployed in mid-sized leagues.

Stuckey (illness) missed Tuesday's shootaround and remains questionable to play against the Timberwolves.

Stuckey continues to battle a case of food poisoning, and at this point he's essentially a game-time call. If he's held out, expect Donald Sloan or C.J. Miles to enter the starting lineup, and both players could see increased minutes.

Stuckey (illness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

Stuckey, who scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds in 35 minutes Saturday, came down with food poisoning Sunday night and his status for Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota is in jeopardy. With George Hill (groin) already ruled out, Donald Sloan or C.J. Miles could move into the starting lineup if Stuckey sits.

Stuckey (groin) returned to the starting lineup during Friday's victory over the Boston Celtics, finishing with six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 28 minutes.

Stuckey struggled to get in a groove offensively, after missing Wednesday's game with a groin injury. He's averaging 25.8 minutes per game so far this season, so it's a good sign in regards to his injury that he played more minutes than his season average. He should be all systems go for Saturday's game barring any unknown setbacks and expect him to have a better game offensively with another game under his belt. With Stuckey back in the starting lineup, C.J. Miles moved back to a reserve role. Also,with George Hill (groin) still sitting out, Stuckey may play slightly more minutes than he's used to.
