Stuckey (ankle) saw 22 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Bucks. He scored seven points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT) and contributed five assists, two boards, a steal, and a blocked shot. The Pacers decided to integrate Stuckey back into the mix slowly after a four-game absence, as he assumed a reserve role Saturday despite point guard George Hill (illness) missing the game. The starting backcourt of Monta Ellis and Chase Budinger each played 30 minutes, but Stuckey could very well cut into Budinger's workload in the contests to come.
Stuckey (ankle) will play Saturday versus Milwaukee, Nate Taylor of the Indy Star reports. Stuckey has missed the previous four games for the Pacers with an ankle injury, but coach Vogel indicated he will play Saturday. Stuckey is currently averaging 22 minutes per game on the season, but he may not reach that mark as the Pacers will likely want to ease him back into action.
Stuckey (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports. The ankle has kept Stuckey out of four of the last five games, and he'll now miss his fourth consecutive contest. The Pacers have compensated for his absence with increased minutes for Chase Budinger, Glenn Robinson III and Joseph Young.
Stuckey (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers. Stuckey has already missed three games due to a sprained right ankle, and is currently in danger of missing his fourth. There hasn't been any timetable give for a return, so it's still unclear if he'll be able to return Wednesday. If he's unable to give it a go, Monta Ellis and Chase Budinger would likely be the starting backcourt, as George Hill is still sidelined with an upper respiratory infection as well.
Stuckey (ankle) will miss his third straight game Monday against the Bulls. The ankle has actually kept Stuckey out for three of the Pacers' last four games, and it's not clear when he might be available. The Pacers could surely use him Monday night, as the team also ruled out starting point guard George Hill (upper respiratory infection) for the contest, leaving the team with little depth in the backcourt. With Stuckey and Hill unavailable, Monta Ellis and Chase Budinger are likely to start at point guard and shooting guard, respectively, while the lightly used Joseph Young and Solomon Hill appear to be their top backups.
