Rodney Stuckey is active for Tuesday's Pistons-Bucks game.
The Detroit guard was an odd DNP - coach's decision before Sunday's game even started.
Pistons beat writer Keith Langlois tweeted Tuesday that Stuckey would return to "normal usage" and quoted Detroit coach Lawrence Frank saying, "We're moving on."
No word on what exactly they're moving on from.
In 38 games this season, Stuckey is averaging 11.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4 assists and .5 steals in 28.4 minutes.
With no Stuckey on Sunday, Brandon Knight blew up with 31 points. Will Bynum will take a hit in this logjam.
Stuckey active, back to normal usage for tonight vs. MIL. "We're moving on," LFrank said after shootaround.

AROUND THE WEB
Tayshaun Prince has played his entire career with the Detroit Pistons, so it’d be natural to expect him to run out of the tunnel, just like he has since entering the league in 2002. Earlier today, reports surfaced of a three-team trade that would send Prince to the Memphis Grizzlies. One eager Prince fan apparently didn’t get the memo — fortunately the TV cameras were rolling...
The last remaining member of the 2004 NBA champion Detroit Pistons is apparently gone.
Reports started to surface Wednesday evening -- about an hour before the Pistons' game in Indiana -- that Tayshaun Prince is heading to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a three-team trade. The Grizzlies would also get Pistons forward Austin Daye and send their star swingman, Rudy Gay, to the...
The last starting member of the Pistons “Goin’ to work” team has had his time card punched for the last time. Wednesday night, the Pistons agreed to a three-team trade that will send Tayshaun Prince to the Memphis Grizzlies. Austin Daye will also head to Memphis. The Pistons will receive point guard Jose Calderon from Toronto.
The marquee piece of the deal is Rudy Gay...

The Detroit Pistons are a train wreck once again, but they are starting to take some steps in the right direction thanks to men like Andre Drummond.
The final remaining piece of the 2004 Championship team is gone.
Wednesday Joe Dumars become involved in a three team trade with Memphis and Toronto that centered around Rudy Gay of the Grizzlies. No the Pistons didn’t acquire Gay, which would have been awesome but they did receive point guard Jose Calderon in the deal who was originally sent to the Grizzlies.
Going to Memphis...
The dominoes are starting to fall in the Rudy Gay deal, and it looks like the Grizzlies got away with murder. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Detroit Pistons are sending forward Tayshaun Prince to Memphis so they can acquire Jose Calderon who was apart of the Rudy Gay trade.
Not a bad lineup when you add Prince to Gasol, Randolph, Allen, and Conley...
I think it’s safe to say the Andre Drummond project is well ahead of schedule.
Tuesday night the Pistons rookie big man became only the second teenager with 18 points and 18 rebounds in a game since 1986-86 joining Dwight Howard who accomplished this feet with the Orlando Magic, before he was a total fool. This included a huge follow up dunk on a missed Rodney Stuckey layup in...
Well there was good news and bad news depending on how you look at it for the the Pistons Wednesday night in Indianapolis.
The good news?
Joe Dumars was able to send the bloated Tayshaun Prince contract along with an under-performing Austin Daye to Memphis for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract.
The bad news… the Pistons were simply pathetic shooting from the field tonight...
Andre Drummond played just 16 minutes of Sunday's win over the Orlando Magic. The rookie center missed his only shot and finished with four rebounds and two blocks.
No Rodney Stuckey (DNP-CD) was a good thing for Brandon Knight, who blew up for 31 points (12-16 FG, 2-2 FT) with five 3-pointers, four rebounds and a steal.
Will Bynum turned in nine points (3-7 FG, 3-4 FT...
Andre Drummond looked dominant in 28 minutes, double-doubling with 18 points and 18 rebounds in Detroit's 117-90 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. The rookie added an assist, two steals and a block.
I keep harping on it, but Drummond is under-owned (38 percent in Yahoo). Tuesday night was an example of what he can do with big minutes.
Rodney Stuckey played 27 minutes after a DNP...
