“Rodney Stuckey had the cast off his broken left hand during his rehab exercises. He was able to hold a basketball in his left hand while jogging. The timetable on his return remains six weeks, but his recovery appears to be progressing more rapidly than expected. ” Via The Detroit News
The article also goes on to quote Amir on his injury “It’s pretty sore, but I will be all right.”
I hope they aren’t rushing Rodney, I know they aren’t, but he did just have surgery less than a week ago so it makes you think. Thanks goes out to Miguel for the link.
As much as we’d all love to see Rodney playing, he isn’t exactly key at this stage of the game and the low number of injuries for this team comes from a competant athletic training staff. I wouldn’t be worried about them rushing him. Now the possibility of him rushing himself..
^^^ Good point, I’m sure Rodney is itching to show Detroit wat he has and he’ll be waiting for that first day he’ll be in that pistons Uni during the regular season anxiously. I hope Kander and Flip don’t play him until we they he’s at 100%
LET”S GO PISTONS AND LET”S GET THAT SHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2007-2008 IT”S OUR TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ALL BOUT DETROIT BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think Stuckey *will* be a key player for the Pistons, but I agree that he isn’t yet. I don’t think a few weeks off at the beginning of his Piston’s tenure will adversely affect him. I also don’t think he’s foolish enough to risk his welfare to speed up his return. He was patient enough to sit out his freshman season (academic ineligibility) at Eastern Washington. Admittedly, he didn’t have a choice, but he’s a guy with a great deal of mental strength; I think people will find he’s every bit the kind of Piston we, as fans, want to root for.
so whats the deal did kobe get traded to chicago..i heard it was a done deal
Nat’s right; there’s no need to rush him. There are plenty of quality Pistons and a very deep bench to use. If Flip has learned anything about sharing minutes, the team will be fine for the first 6 weeks without Rodeney, and when he returns they’ll be that much better.
The deal that fell through was pretty awful for everyone except Chicago.
Bulls gets Kobe.
Kings get PJ Brown (wasn’t aware he was signed anywhere) and Ben Gorden.
Lakers get Ron Artest and Ben Wallace.
*Laughs* Big Ben and Ron Artest on the Lakers? Man, that is pretty damned funny!
Anyway, I can’t imagine the Lakers think that deal is in any way to their benefit, so I’m not surprised it got shot down.
Anyone here going to the Pistons/Bulls game in Chicago on the 8th? I just bought my tickets and next Thursday can’t come soon enough!
Rodney looks a little like 50 cent lol!sheed should get on him for that. remember Miami Vice with Carlos?!!
its going to be pistons vs. spurs come June. Pistons in 7
Nice work with the commemerative background, Natalie!
