Stuckey nears return


Detroit Pistons coach John Kuester says he’s hoping Rodney Stuckey will play Friday. Stuckey, a third-year guard out of Eastern Washington University, was out of the lineup Tuesday night against Cleveland, missing his sixth straight game since collapsing on the bench against the Cavs on March 5. Kuester hopes Stuckey can practice Thursday and return to action Friday, two weeks after he went off the court on a stretcher and was taken to a hospital. Doctors cleared Stuckey for exercise last week after extensive cardiac tests. Stuckey missed two games last season after experiencing dizziness. The guard has said he’s not worried about the same problems happening again.
