Rodney Stuckey stays home

As of last night, the Pistons were confident Rodney Stuckey would make today's trip out West. When it came time to leave this morning, though, he stayed behind for additional testing. From Pistons.com:

One week after the Pistons traded Chauncey Billups in the deal for Allen Iverson, Rodney Stuckey stayed home for further medical observation after a bout with dizziness during Sunday’s loss to Boston.

Stuckey, the team’s No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft, went to his knees as the first half of Sunday’s game ended, then rose slowly but stayed hunched over as Pistons strength coach Arnie Kander talked to him for a few minutes. Stuckey walked toward the locker room under his own power but didn’t return for the second half.

[...] Stuckey is listed as day to day and has not yet been ruled out for Tuesday night’s game against Sacramento. If he’s cleared by doctors today, he could rejoin the team in time for tipoff. The four-game road trip continues on Thursday night in Golden State and Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers before concluding on Sunday night at Phoenix.

Update: I have more at FanHouse.
