The Pistons will be shorthanded against the Bulls tonight.
Rodney Stuckey is still recovering from a sore groin and Charlie Villanueva’s right ankle is still ginger enough to keep him out of action.
Villanueva’s X-rays came back negative and there’s no definitive timetable for his return.
Austin Daye is a game-time decision. He’s been taking electronic stimulation, as recently as last night during dinner, in the effort to get ready for tonight’s game.
Either way, a tall task against the league’s stingiest defense just got taller.
