Auburn Hills — Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey underwent successful surgery to repair a break in his right thumb Friday afternoon.
The team hasn't given a definitive timetable on his return, only saying he'll be re-evaluated in two weeks and will wear a splint during that time.
Stuckey, 27, is entering the last season of his contract and was slated as a likely candidate to start at shooting guard alongside Brandon Jennings. He suffered the injury Wednesday after getting his thumb caught in the door jamb of his vehicle when it was closing.
Kyle Singler started in his place Thursday night; the season is still three weeks away, so there's a chance he won't miss significant time
