Detroit Pistons’ Rodney Stuckey Smashes Thumb In Car Door, Needs Surgery
Rodney Stuckey was supposed to start his seventh season with the Detroit Pistons as a crucial bench player with a lot to contribute. However, Stuckey’s 2013 campaign got off to a bumpy start on Thursday when the back-up guard managed to break his thumb in a rather peculiar way. Detroit fans may want to close their ears because this insane injury — similar to the Detroit Lions‘ Nate Burleson — also involves a car.
Stuckey apparently got his thumb stuck in a car door, which was about to slam shut. Well, gravity was not defied and Stuckey has an automobile to blame for his fractured thumb.
Thankfully, the Pistons made a couple off-season moves this summer as both Brandon Jennings and Chauncey Billups are currently ahead of Stuckey on Detroit’s depth chart. Despite undergoing surgery on his thumb; it’s unaware just how long this injury will keep Stuckey away from the hardwood. The story here is not Stuckey’s impact on the Pistons; instead, it’s just another example of a millionaire athlete falling victim to an injury that could have easily been avoided.
Burleson and Stuckey will be the first ones to tell you that although Detroit is known as the “Motor City,” its automobiles are hardly forgiving.
