AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey felt dizzy and lightheaded late in the first half and did not return to play Sunday night against the Boston Celtics.

Stuckey squatted with discomfort in the final seconds of the second quarter, then stood up with his hands on his knees. Later, Stuckey patted his chest rapidly while talking to strength coach Arnie Kander.

After slowly walking off the court, Stuckey sat on a chair outside the officials' locker room and looked woozy.

"He's fine," Kander said.

After the game, Pistons coach Michael Curry said he hoped Stuckey would join the team for a practice Monday before playing on the road Tuesday night against Sacramento.
