Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey broke his thumb after it got jammed in his car door on Wednesday afternoon.

Bad news for the Detroit Pistons: guard Rodney Stuckey has a broken right thumb.

According to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, Stuckey "suffered the injury when his thumb was caught inside the door jamb of his vehicle Wednesday afternoon." 

Here is an excerpt of the team's press release about the incident from CBS Sports. 

"The Detroit Pistons announced today that guard Rodney Stuckey has suffered a fracture of the distal phalanx on his right thumb and will miss tonight's game vs. Miami

"The injury occurred on Wednesday afternoon as a result of the thumb becoming caught inside the door jamb of Stuckey's vehicle while the door was closing.

A break in his thumb was revealed. He will undergo surgery on Friday and is expected to sit out for an unspecified amount of time. This marks the second time Stuckey has broken a part of his hand in his pro career. In his rookie year, he had a broken bone in his left hand which forced him to miss 27 games, per Ellis. 

The mishap occurs on the same day Detroit head coach Maurice Cheeks praised Stuckey's play after practice. Both he and point guard Brandon Jennings (widom tooth discomfort) sat out the preseason game against the Miami Heat on Thursday.

Kyle Singler took the court in Stuckey's absence.

C.J. Miles Is Indiana Pacers' Best Bet to Fill Small Forward Void

Oct 31 2014 11:41am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Indiana Pacers desperately need C.J. Miles to be an impact player at small forward this season.  That desperation was not there when he was first signed this summer to a four-year $18 million deal. At that point, the best-case scenario for Miles was a role as a third wing off the bench behind Paul George and Lance Stephenson. The worst-case scenario was Miles replacing Stephenson in the starting lineup if Stephenson signed elsewhere.  It turned out the ...

Post Up: Clutch Kemba

Oct 30 2014 8:58am CDT | Source: slamonline

Hornets (1-0) 108, Bucks (0-1) 106 The last time we saw a Charlotte Hornets-Milwaukee Bucks matchup, Jabari Parker was just seven years old. It was April 2002, and Ray Allen went for 47 points and the win. In their return to Charlotte twelve years later, the Hornets looked dead in the water until battling back from a 24-point third quarter deficit—the largest comeback in franchise history. Kemba Walker’s 16 second-half points were highlighted by a three-ball wit ...
