Pistons expect Rodney Stuckey to play Friday night

Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey is expected to play Friday night, two weeks after collapsing on the bench during a game.

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars says Stuckey practiced well on Thursday and expects him to play at Indiana against the Pacers.

Stuckey was out of the lineup Tuesday night against Cleveland, missing his sixth straight game since he went off the court on a stretcher and was taken to a hospital during a March 5 game at Cleveland.

Doctors cleared Stuckey for exercise last week after extensive cardiac tests.

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