–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.
