Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey slammed his right thumb in a car door and will require surgery the Pistons announced Thursday. There's no timetable for his return yet. Stuckey averaged 12 points and four assists last season for the Pistons shooting just 41 percent from the field. The Pistons do have some guard depth with rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and point guards Peyton Siva and Will Bynum along with Kyle Singler. The bigger ramification may be that it hurts the team's ability to shop the veteran guard and his $8.5 million expiring contract. Stuckey missed 27 games in 2007-2008 with a fracture in his hand.
