The Pistons won’t be able to see what their full compliment of players looks like until Brandon Jennings is cleared to play after his fractured jaw, but Rodney Stuckey is hopeful he’ll be able to go on opening night.

Stuckey’s broken right thumb has progressed to the point the Pistons say he’s been cleared for “limited basketball activities” and after visiting with doctors Friday, he’s back to shooting the ball with his right hand — but no contact drills.

“Everything’s healing good. (I’ll) just take it day by day,” Stuckey said. “Cleared to do limited basketball stuff. Really no contact as of now. Just doing drills and stuff. Doing 5 on 5 with the guys, can’t do that now. The running drills, the offensive and defensive stuff, I’m doing it.”

Stuckey would be a big boost to an injury-depleted backcourt if he can play Wednesday against the Washington Wizards, the season opener for both teams. The Wizards are a guard-led squad, with point guard John Wall and sharpshooting sophomore Bradley Beal commanding the bulk of the attention.

With Jennings missing at least the first handful of games with injury, Stuckey — who was called the best defensive guard by Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks hours before Stuckey jammed his thumb into his car door — would be a big help against a potent backcourt.

“That’s the goal. Not saying I will be (ready) but that’s the ultimate goal,” Stuckey said. “Like I said, day by day, see how it feels and hopefully I’ll be good.”

With three practice days between now and opening night, Cheeks wouldn’t mind seeing Stuckey practice before throwing him into competition but it doesn’t sound like he’d hesitate to put Stuckey in if the player pronounced himself ready on Wednesday — with no practice under his belt.
