Justin White of Fox Sports Detroit broke the news.
Rodney Stuckey out for the rest of the game because of a sore knee. #Pistons— Justin White (@JustinWhite33) December 8, 2013
According to Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News, Stuckey had looked over at Arnie Kander, Detroit's strength and conditioning coach, on the bench to signal that something was wrong.
Stuckey turned the ball over and turned straight to Arnie Kander. He's got knee tendonitis so it could've flared up. KCP back— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) December 8, 2013
The injury couldn't come at a worse time for the seventh-year guard. He's having one of the best seasons of his NBA career, leading the team with 16.2 points on 47.5 percent shooting. His player efficiency rating of 18.3 is third on the team.
At least the injury doesn't appear to be serious. The only issue is how much longer the sore knee will linger for Stuckey.
