The announcement came minutes before the Pistons' exhibition game tonight against the Miami Heat at the Palace. The team says he suffered the injury when his thumb was caught inside the door jamb of his vehicle Wednesday afternoon. X-rays revealed the break, and surgery is scheduled for Friday and then a timetable for his return will be given. ... He was having a good camp defensively. Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks went out of his way to compliment his defensive work Wednesday afternoon. Stuckey was in the running to be in the starting lineup when the regular season begins Oct. 30, but Kyle Singler got the nod against the Heat.

The Pistons have been waiting on Stuckey to "develop" for years years. They let Chauncey go 5 years ago. It's time to go in another direction. Stuckey didn't have it then, and he's not the answer now.

Another dumb egoist pick from Dumars. And he keeps piling on by extending stupid contracts as well.
Dumbars needs to go.

Honestly, Stuckey has never developed into anything other than an inefficient player who eats up minutes. I honestly don't know why the Pistons haven't moved on yet.
