Stuckey (knee) is fully healthy and intends to visit several NBA teams after Labor Day, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Stuckey was cut last season in late March by the Pacers before his player option would have kicked in. The decision by management was relatively straightforward considering Stuckey was dealing with a knee injury that was set to have him sidelined for four-to-six weeks. He appeared in just 39 games during 2016-17, posting 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 17.8 minutes per game (the smallest workload of his career) while shooting 37.3 percent from the field. If he ends up finding a suitor, it will likely be for a reserve role once again.
Stuckey (knee) was waived by the Pacers on Wednesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
The Pacers had until April 10 to release Stuckey before his player option for next season would have kicked in, and the team will take the opportunity to not only save some money, but also to potentially add a healthy player to the roster for the final couple weeks of the regular season. Stuckey, who was diagnosed with a left patellar strain Tuesday and ruled out for four-to-six weeks, will now turn his focus to rehabbing in hopes of landing a new contract this offseason. The 30-year-old will conclude the injury-plagued season having appeared in only 39 games, posting averages of 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 17.8 minutes per game.
The Pacers announced Tuesday that Stuckey (knee) is dealing with a left patellar tendon strain and would be sidelined for four-to-six weeks.
Stuckey left Sunday's win over the 76ers with a sore knee, prompting the team to order an MRI in an effort to get an official diagnosis. With the scans revealing that Stuckey's injury was more serious than anticipated, he'll now miss the rest of the regular season and likely the playoffs, barring a deep run by the Pacers. In his stead, Aaron Brooks figures to benefit the most, as he's now the unquestioned top backup to Jeff Teague. Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles will also pick up some additional run, especially with fellow wing Glenn Robinson (calf) uncertain to return before the end of the regular season.
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.
Stuckey (ankle) will be available for Monday's tilt against the Thunder.
Stuckey has been bothered by injuries all year, playing just 18 games so far, but he's healthy for Monday's matchup. When he plays, he provides 9.0 points and 2.0 assists across 19.9 minutes per game. His return will likely mean a downtick in usage for Aaron Brooks and Monta Ellis.
Stuckey (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Monday's tilt with the Thunder, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Stuckey's 2016-17 season has been an injury-plagued mess, as he's missed extensive time due to injuries to both hamstrings and returned to action last week for a game and immediately preceded to sprain his right ankle. The latest setback has already sidelined him for two games, but the Pacers will check back on Stuckey's condition in the hours leading up to game time Monday before determining his status. If Stuckey is held out again, Aaron Brooks, Glenn Robinson and Monta Ellis could all take on a few extra minutes with the second unit.
Stuckey (ankle) will remain out Saturday against the Pistons.
Stuckey returned from a lengthy, hamstring-related absence Wednesday in Orlando, but he suffered a sprained right ankle during that contest and will now miss his second straight game as the Pacers play on the second night of a back-to-back set. Expect Glenn Robinson and Monta Ellis to each pick up some extra minutes in Stuckey's absence.
Stuckey will not play in Friday's game against the Nets due to a sprained right ankle.
Stuckey just made his return Wednesday after a 15-game absence due to a strained left hamstring, and now it appears he has suffered from an ankle injury in that return. The fact that he has already been ruled out for Friday's game is surely not an encouraging sign, and he should be considered questionable-at-best to play in the team's second game of a back-to-back set Saturday. For as long as Stuckey is out, look for Glenn Robinson and Monta Ellis to consume majority of the reserve backcourt minutes for Indiana.
Stuckey (hamstring) logged 14 minutes in Wednesday's 98-88 win over the Magic, producing eight points (2-6 FG, 4-6 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal.
Stuckey, who was making his return from a 15-game absence due to a strained left hamstring, provided the Pacers with a bit of a scoring lift off the bench, but his performance didn't come without any warts. In addition to a poor shooting night, Stuckey committed three turnovers, tying the combined total of the Pacers' other four reserve players. The veteran guard could see a slight uptick in playing time in future contests, but probably not a significant enough of an amount to give him appeal in most fantasy leagues.
Stuckey (hamstring) will be active and available to play in Wednesday's game against the Magic, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Coach Nate McMillan mentioned earlier Wednesday that if Stuckey was cleared to play, it would only be limited minutes, so fantasy owners can probably wait to activate Stuckey for the time being. Once on a full workload, Stuckey will likely slot back in as the team's backup point guard to Jeff Teague, although considering he's set to be limited, Aaron Brooks could still see added minutes for the next game or two.
Stuckey (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Stuckey hasn't seen the floor since Dec. 26 after aggravating a strained left hamstring, but after returning to practice last week and taking part in additional sessions Monday and Tuesday, it looks like the reserve guard might be ready to go Wednesday. Even if the Pacers decide to err on the side of caution and hold Stuckey out Wednesday, his advancement into the day-to-day range of the recovery process could put him on tap for a return for either or both of the team's weekend back-to-back games.
Stuckey (hamstring) will practice Monday and Tuesday and then be re-evaluated to determine a timetable for a return, Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com reports.
Stuckey has missed the past 15 games due to a hamstring injury, but may have a chance to play Wednesday against the Magic, provided he does well in practice Monday and Tuesday. He's a significant piece of the Pacers' offense, averaging 9.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists across 20.3 minutes per game this season. His eventual return will probably mean a decrease in playing time for the likes of Glenn Robinson, Monta Ellis, and Aaron Brooks.
Stuckey (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
Stuckey's sore left hamstring will extend his absence until at least the Pacers' next game Wednesday versus the Magic. Glenn Robinson, Monta Ellis and Aaron Brooks will continue to serve as the primary backup reserves until further notice.
Stuckey (hamstring) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Kings.
Since the Pacers are entering the second half of a back-to-back set Friday, Stuckey won't have a chance to test out his sore left hamstring during a morning shootaround session, so he'll remain sidelined yet again. The reserve combo guard hasn't appeared in a game since Dec. 26.
Stuckey (hamstring), who's already been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, is also not expected to be available for Friday's matchup with the Kings, Nate Taylor of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Stuckey has played in just one of the Pacers last 18 games because of a hamstring injury and coach Nate McMillan has now indicated that he doesn't expect to have Stuckey for the team's current back-to-back set. That means his next opportunity to take the court will be Sunday against the Rockets, although it's not a guarantee he'll be given the green light then either. With Stuckey still out for the foreseeable future, Monta Ellis (ankle) and Aaron Brooks (knee) should see some added time in the backcourt off the bench.
Stuckey (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup in Minnesota.
Stuckey was back on the practice court this week, but has not yet progressed enough to avoid missing his thirteenth game in a row. It's seemingly unlikely he'd take the court for the second game of a back-to-back set Friday against the Kings, but it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect him back next week.
