In a surprising move, Tracy McGrady was re-inserted as starting point guard for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, moving Rodney Stuckey to the bench.

Stuckey had been playing under more control in recent games since moving back to the point, when McGrady was out due to various reasons. Stuckey averaged 21 points and eight assists in the last four games.

"It's one of these things, we're looking on a continual basis to mix and match," Kuester said. "He's (McGrady) worked real hard."

McGrady played 35 minutes and had 15 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in the Pistons' 111-104 loss to the Spurs. It was McGrady's first game since Feb. 23, a 102-101 loss to the Pacers. He missed the next five games.

Stuckey played 15 minutes and had three points and one assist. Kuester didn't say afterwards if the move was permanent.
