Why was Rodney Stuckey inactive?

USA TODAY Sports

Stuckey was a healthy scratch Sunday against the Orlando Magic. Answers as to why he was inactive are sparse but we try and put together the pieces.

Rodney Stuckey did not play in the Pistons' 104-102 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday. It was described as an inactive via a "coach's decision."

This means there is probably no trade on the horizon. Stuckey has had run-ins with coaches in the past, particularly John Kuester, though he wasn't the only Pistons player that clashed with Kuester.

He's had no issues with Lawrence Frank up to this point, however, despite the fact that he is struggling mightily this season as he defers more to Brandon Knight and Will Bynum in the backcourt.
