–G Rodney Stuckey is averaging 22.7 points and 8.3 assists off the bench in his last three games, including a game-high 24 points and 11 assists against Charlotte Sunday. The hot streak follows his two-game benching for disciplinary reasons. Stuckey was so effective that he played 40 minutes while starting point guard Tracy McGrady went scoreless in eight minutes.

–G Ben Gordon only scored six points backing up Richard Hamilton, but like Hamilton, he was content to be a playmaker against the Bobcats. Like Hamilton, he had six assists, just one shy of his season-high. Gordon has scored in single digits the last 11 games, reinforcing what a bust he’s been since he signed a five-year, $55 million contract prior to last season.

–F Charlie Villanueva likes playing in Charlotte. He scored 20 points Sunday, mainly on post-ups, baseline moves and run-outs as he hit just one three-point shot in six attempts. That was his fifth 20-point game but first since he had 25 during the Pistons’ first trip to Charlotte Dec. 27.

MEDICAL WATCH

–F Jonas Jerebko (partial Achilles’ tear, right leg) underwent surgery on Oct. 8 after crashing to the floor while driving to the basket during the opening preseason game. He will not play this season.

–G Terrico White (fractured fifth metatarsal, right foot) was injured during the Pistons’ preseason opener and also underwent surgery Oct. 8. He has not played this season.

–G Will Bynum (strained right knee) has missed the last two games. He is questionable to play against Cleveland Monday.

–C Ben Wallace (sore right knee) has not played nine of the last 10 games. He is unlikely to play again this season.
