Stuckey close to playing again

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.  - Pistons coach John Kuester says he's hoping Rodney Stuckey will play Friday. Stuckey was out of the lineup Tuesday night against Cleveland, missing his sixth straight game since collapsing on the bench against the Cavs.

Kuester hopes Stuckey can practice Thursday and return to action Friday, two weeks after he went off the court on a stretcher and was taken to a hospital. Doctors cleared Stuckey for exercise last week after extensive cardiac tests.

Stuckey missed two games last season after experiencing dizziness. The guard has said he's not worried about the same problems happening again.

Cavs coach Mike Brown kept guard Delonte West out of the lineup as a precaution because of a sprained knee.
