The Pistons only real challenge for tonight was going up against the two time defending NBA champs, the Miami Heat.
Now they will be without their best bench player, maybe even their best player this season in Rodney Stuckey.
According to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com, Stuckey is out tonight with “left knee tendonitis”.
Stuckey is day to day. Cheeks didn't seem to think it would linger. It's left knee tendinitis, same injury as Billups, but 10 years younger
