–G Rodney Stuckey could wind up replacing Tracy McGrady at point guard for the remainder of the season. McGrady played a lifeless 12 minutes in Indiana on Wednesday, contributing just two points and no assists while losing his man defensively on several occasions. Stuckey had 24 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.

–F Charlie Villanueva injured his back and played just 12 minutes. He was stretched out along the sideline during the fourth quarter. Villanueva’s injury gave DaJuan Summers a rare chance to play late-game minutes. Summers had five points in nine minutes.

–G Will Bynum was not with the team Wednesday. He was excused for personal reasons but should be back in uniform for Friday’s game against Chicago. Bynum has been utilized as a fourth-quarter sparkplug in recent games.


–F Jonas Jerebko (partial right Achilles tear) underwent surgery on Oct. 8. He will not play this season.

–G Terrico White (fractured fifth metatarsal, right foot) underwent surgery Oct. 8. He has returned to practice, but it’s uncertain if he will play this season.

–C Ben Wallace (sore left knee) has not played the last four games. He is questionable to play against Chicago on Friday.

–F Charlie Villanueva (sore back) was hurt Wednesday. He is questionable to play Friday.

    What we learned is that a kid that didnt make it to the NBA straight out probably wasnt going to make it big in the pros anyway Memphis coach John Calipari said.More damaging will be the continued early-entry departures of players who dont make it to year two three or four in their programs. Its not the kids who never show up — what really hurts is the kids who do play well and then leave early. The new rule is going to allow them to start plucking more of our guys out of our program Florida coach Billy Donovan said. Can we make the assumption that he would have struggled the same way in college had he played for Florida even for one year?Apparently not according to Donovan. He was the first player in the draft so he was going to have some type of impact Donovan said of his Gators that that finished 22-9 10-6 in the SEC East and lost in the NCAA first round in 2001-02. Im not saying he would have been first-team all league but he certainly would have gone with Udonis Haslem David Lee James White and Matt Bonner Donovan said.
