Stuckey (knee), who is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves. Stuckey was pulled early from Sunday's game against the 76ers due to left knee soreness, but the fact that he's slated for an MRI likely means the Pacers have some concerns over the injury. The Pacers head into a back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday, so there's a chance coach Nate McMillan could take a cautious approach and hold Stuckey out for at least one of those contests. More clarity on Stuckey's health should be provided following Tuesday's morning shootaround.
Stuckey (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday. Stuckey left Sunday's game against the 76ers with what was diagnosed as a sore left knee, but the Pacers' decision to send him in for further scans suggests the team is concerned he might be dealing with a more severe issue. It doesn't seem promising that Stuckey will be able to suit up Tuesday against the Timberwolves, but official word on that front probably won't come until after the Pacers' morning shootaround. C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis would likely be in line for a few extra minutes apiece if Stuckey is ruled out.
Stuckey suffered a sore left knee in Sunday's game against the 76ers and won't return. The severity of Stuckey's injury isn't certain, but the Pacers should have a better idea regarding his health prior to Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves. If he's ultimately forced to sit out Tuesday and beyond, C.J. Miles could see addition run as the top backup at both wing spots.
Stuckey accumulated nine points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, and two rebounds across 20 minutes during Sunday's 102-98 victory over the Heat. After missing a combined 32 games this season due to injuries with both his hamstrings and right ankle, Stuckey has quietly settled into a 17.1 minute per game bench role since the conclusion of the All-Star break. That being said, he's still trying to shake the rust off, as he's only shooting 29.8 percent from the field over the past nine contests. His status is likely only worth monitoring in deeper leagues, though if he misses any more time, it could open up value in DFS for guys like Monta Ellis.
Stuckey (ankle) put up nine points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound and one assist across 14 minutes in a 93-90 win over the Thunder on Monday. Stuckey settled in as the backup to starting point guard Jeff Teague in his return from a two-game absence, resulting in Aaron Brooks getting pushed out of the rotation. The veteran was able to provide the Pacers with a scoring lift during his time on the court, and his ability to play either backcourt spot could allow him to claim a few more minutes in future contests. Health still remains a concern for Stuckey, however, as he's made only 19 appearances on the season while battling injuries to both hamstrings and his right ankle.
