San Antonio Spurs swingman Stephen Jackson has a non-displaced fracture of his right pinky finger.
He tried to get the finger taped up by the training staff and continue to play, but apparently, couldn’t playy with the injury. He is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks with the injury.
He was starting at the small forward position before the injury in place of Kawhi Leonard, who is out with a knee injury. Now, Danny Green is expected to receive the majority of the playing time at small forward.
Boris Diaw, Gary Neal, and Tiago Splitter could also receive playing time at small forward.
In 9 games, Captain Jack is averaging 8.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. He is also averaging 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
