Rodney Stuckey G IND 17 Days

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.

Stuckey (groin) is officially questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics.

Stuckey didn't play Wednesday due to the groin injury, and now could miss Friday's game as well. With George Hill (groin) out and C.J. Watson (foot) questionable for the contest, Donald Sloan is the only point guard guaranteed to be available. If Stuckey should play and Watson sits, he could see added minutes in Watson's place.

Stuckey (face) started Saturday's game, posting a monster line of 20 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with six rebounds, eight assists and four steals in 36 minutes against the downtrodden Nets.

There was some doubt about Stuckey lining up after taking an elbow from Andre Drummond to the face Friday, but owners would be glad he did. It was Stuckey's season-high in assists and the first night scoring in double-digits in his last five games. In saying that, he appears to be locked in as a starter and should have low-end standard league value.

Stuckey (face) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Nets, Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Stuckey left Friday's game against Detroit and did not return after taking a shot to the face from Andre Drummond. He was dealing with some swelling after the game, but his condition has apparently improved to the point that he'll likely suit up Saturday. Stuckey began the month of December on a tear, scoring in double figures in eight straight games, but he's cooled off of late, averaging just 6.5 points on 25.8 percent shooting over his last four contests.
