    Put him on a bus to Detroit and let Kenny take care of the SG spot during the rest of this roadtrip.

    RS needs to stop screwing around and just get it checked out asap, not "soon" because him playing through it is doing nothing but hurt the team. It would also us a look at Ken English as a starter to see if it works.

    This is my favorite bit

    Coach Lawrence Frank said Stuckey's migraines might have played a part.

    I think the fact that Rodney is planning on getting this checked out soon...shows some real initiative on his part.

    I don't think 1-for-17 shooting is that big of deal. He just needs to shoot even more to break his way out of the slump.

    Give the young fella some credit for trying to shoot his way out of it....to be honest, if it was me, I'd be running around the court, holding my head in my hands and yelling..ow..ow..ow.

    Glad there is an explanation. He just didn't seem like his usual aggressive self.

    This is usually the time of year when Stuckey gets in a beef with his coach after the coach explains his poor play away because he is not in shape. This year it is "migraines".

    I would never make it to the court. A real migraine would have me huddled in a dark room, in absolute silence, praying for sleep.

    He's a trooper to try to play through it, but he should probably rest and see a doctor. Especially considering his seizure episode a few years back. Kid should be getting cat scans, not trying to play ball.

    Either you can play or not.... if you can, I don't want to hear excuses after the game. If you can't, get things sorted. There is no reason for anybody this year to play thru a nagging injury. This year.... its about growth.... so next man up show us what ya got.

    It's irresponsible to play when you know that you're not nearly at 100%...
    Stuckey needs to have his head examined............

    Came across this little tidbit a couple minutes ago:



    Pistons' Rodney Stuckey struggles with migraines, altered role | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com

    So basically, Stuckey and Knight don't fit anymore. You know who does well standing in the corners to spot up for 3s? Kim English. Khris Middleton. Kyle Singler. Even Austin Daye. We have options. I really wish coach would use them rather than forcing a combo that clearly no longer works. If Stuck wants the ball in his hands, give him the sixth man role as Knight's backup. Or, he could "attack" more when he's in with the second unit as their primary scoring option. It's on him to make it work. And yeah, being less aggressive doesn't have to equal shooting 4% from the field.

    He is also apparently taking antibiotics for the headaches. But really, if the migraines are bothering him that much, he needs to sit. If he's so important to the team, isn't it more prudent to sit him, get him right, and then go back to him when he's healthy? It's maddening - and doesn't speak well of the staff if a player who claims to suffer from dizziness still is allowed to play, to his own and the team's detriment.

    Errr ok he ended the season playing some of his best basketball in Detroit and Knight was along side.... My patience with Stuckey is all but gone..... Trade him now before his trade value is totally gone.... (I'm good with 2 3rd round picks at this point)
