Two games (and really less than that) is a small sample size, but the good news is in those 26 minutes Stuckey was 4 of 7 from the field and 1 of 2 from 3-point range. He had a total of 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists during those games.
Stuckey gives the reserves a little bit of size at the guard position, something the starters lack. Getting Stuckey back in the rotation can help the bench’s offense, as long as he’s healthy.
Last year Stuckey was never at 100%, and it showed in his production. It was the first time since his rookie season with the Detroit Pistons that he failed to score 10+ points a game.
As long as Stuckey is healthy, he is a welcome addition to the Indiana Pacers rotation.
