Rodney Stuckey Day-to-Day With Dizziness -- NBA FanHouse

Rodney Stuckey Day-to-Day With Dizziness

The Pistons were absolutely destroyed by the Celtics last night, and most of the damage was done in the second quarter in which Boston outscored Detroit 30-10. With seven seconds left in the half, the Pistons called a timeout, but after taking the in-bounds pass, Rodney Stuckey held onto the ball for a few seconds before giving it up to Rasheed Wallace, who missed badly with a 27-footer just before the buzzer.

I was at the game, and when that play happened, I turned to the guy sitting next to me and said, "Seriously, that's the play they drew up?"

In hindsight, no, that probably wasn't the play that Michael Curry wanted, but Stuckey had good reason for not attempting to drive the lane: he was suddenly overcome with feeling dizzy and lightheaded. Moments after the halftime buzzer sounded, he dropped to his knees as he was walking off the court before being helped off by trainer Arnie Kander.

They got as far as the tunnel leading to the locker room before he leaned against the wall and eventually took a seat on a chair to gather himself. He eventually made his way all the way back to the trainer's room, where he stayed for the rest of the game. He apparently felt well enough to avoid a trip to the hospital, though, and the feeling among team officials as I left the arena was that he'd be able to make today's the team's flight to Sacramento.

For the moment, though, those plans have been put on hold as he's been left behind for additional testing. It's still possible he'll be cleared in time to join his teammates for Tuesday's game, but as of right now the surprisingly solid Will Bynum should serve as Allen Iverson's primary backup. There's a good chance there's nothing seriously wrong with Stuckey -- the speculation last night was that he had a reaction to some allergy medicine -- but there's no reason not to play it safe and find out for sure.

Stuckey rejoins Pistons, still out for Warriors game

SAN FRANCISCO -- Rodney Stuckey is back with the Detroit Pistons, but he said he doesn't plan on playing in tomorrow night's game.

Stuckey suffered dizziness shortly before halftime in Detroit's 88-76 loss to Boston on Sunday. He stayed behind in Detroit for additional tests, while his teammates traveled out West on Monday.

He didn't reveal exactly what the tests were looking for other than to say that the tests were "just making sure I'm healthy, which I am. So that's pretty much it," Stuckey said.

As for why he won't play tomorrow night, Stuckey said it was not related to his dizziness episode.

"More just getting my legs under me again, and stuff like that," he said.

I can understand why Stuckey isn't making too big a deal out of this, but even he admits that it was kind of scary.

"Anytime something happens like that, it's always scary," he said. "That's why we took precautions about the situation. We found out that everything came back good news. I'm here now. I'm good."

He better be, because the Pistons will have no problem looking to get more minutes for Will Bynum who is carving out a greater role for himself with seemingly minute he plays.

Pistons: Stuckey is 'doing well' after collapse | detnews.com | The Detroit News

Pistons: Stuckey is 'doing well' after collapse

Larry Lage / Associated Press

Detroit -- Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey seems to be OK after collapsing on the bench Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"He's doing well," Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander told the Associated Press on Saturday morning. "All the tests have come back negative."

Stuckey spent the night at the Cleveland Clinic for observation while cardiologists check him out. He might get cleared to return to Detroit later Saturday.

Stuckey was conscious and breathing on his own as he was taken to the hospital after collapsing into Kander's arms on the bench during the third quarter.

He was wheeled off the court on a stretcher and the medical staff put an oxygen mask on his face before he was put into an ambulance.

Stuckey missed two games in 2008 after feeling dizzy and lightheaded during a game.

In that game, Stuckey squatted with discomfort in the final seconds of the second quarter, stood up with his hands on his knees and later patted his chest rapidly while talking to Kander.

"It was a more dramatic this time because it was on TV," Kander said. "I think he's going to be OK. When we talked last night, he sounded normal."

Glad he seems fine, no reason to rush him back there's only 20 games left and this seems like an issue thats recurring. The team needs to figure it out so Rodney can play with a clear mind and the team can make plans for their future knowing they have a healthy player.

I hate to take it this route, but I have Stuckey on my Fantasy team. Should I cut him? I'd assume they are going to hold him out the rest of the way.

I bet he plays next week, I would hold on for a few days.

Pistons' Rodney Stuckey: 'I’m good; everything is good' | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

Pistons' Rodney Stuckey: 'I’m good; everything is good'

Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey spoke to the media today for the first time since collapsing on the bench in Friday night’s game at Cleveland and being rushed to the hospital.

He emerged from the locker room, chatted with teammates, team president Joe Dumars and the rest of the staff, and said he felt fine. His return is in doubt. He’s listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game against Utah.

“I’m good; everything is good,” Stuckey said. “They ran a lot of tests on me, and everything came out good. My heart is good, so I’m just taking it day-by-day.

“I don’t remember much about what happened; just walking back to the bench and talking to (strength coach) Arnie (Kander). Right now, I feel fine, though.”

The incident was Stuckey's second fainting episode.

In November 2008, he had to be helped to the tunnel just before halftime against Boston. The team left for a West Coast trip the next day, and Stuckey stayed behind, missing the first two games of the trip to be examined by doctors. He played the last two games of that trip.

Coach John Kuester said there’s no timetable for Stuckey to come back.

“It was good to see him,” Kuester said. “He looks good. There’s no new news as far as when he’ll play. We’ll find out some more information in the next 48 hours, I would imagine.”

Stuckey said he appreciated the concern from his teammates, who rallied around him in his time of need.

“I contacted my family and let them know I’m all right — just having that support is important,” Stuckey said. “It’s a good thing. If anything ever happened to them, I’d be by their side. Knowing they have my back and they care for me is a good thing.”

Pistons' Rodney Stuckey expects to return this season | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

Pistons' Rodney Stuckey expects to return this season

It appears that whenever Rodney Stuckey feels comfortable returning to the basketball floor, he will be allowed to.

A combined medical team representing doctors from the University of Michigan, the Cleveland Clinic and the Detroit Medical Center have concluded that — after cardiac tests came back negative — Pistons point guard Rodney Stuckey can start “a progressive exercise program,” according to a Pistons release Wednesday afternoon.

But the question remains why Stuckey complained of dizziness before having to be carried from Quicken Loans Arena on a stretcher with an oxygen mask Friday night during a loss at Cleveland – an episode with some similarities to an incident involving Stuckey last season.

So it appears that the organization is exercising caution before allowing Stuckey, 23, to take part in full-blown activities, and he didn’t play in Wednesday’s home game against the Utah Jazz.

It wasn’t clear what is meant by exercise, but Stuckey said before the game that he is probably allowed to go through drills.

“I don’t know — I don’t really know,” Stuckey said in the Pistons' locker room. “I don’t know what to tell you guys.

“I haven’t talked to Arnie (Kander) or (Mike Abdenour) or those guys about it. But if they said I’m clear to exercise, I’m pretty sure I’m probably clear to practice.”

Kander is the team’s strength-and-conditioning coach, and Abdenour is the head athletic trainer.

Stuckey said he expects to play again this season, and he said after the game he would not practice today.

Stuckey said the tests were a lot more extensive than the ones he underwent last season when, during a November 2008 home game against the Celtics, he suffered a major dizzy spell at halftime. He had to be helped to the locker room, and he didn’t return to that game. He went on to miss two more games before being cleared to return.

But after testing his heart, Stuckey said he is going to take his time returning.

“Right now, I’m just taking it day-to-day. We’ll see what happens,” he said. “I’m done talking about this stuff. I did all the tests. They came back fine. Everything is good. I got cleared. I’m good now.”

Pistons coach John Kuester said the next couple of days should offer more of an idea when Stuckey might return to the lineup.
