San Antonio Spurs’ Stephen Jackson to Miss 4-6 Weeks

San Antonio Spurs Swingman Stephen Jackson Out 4-6 Weeks

Kevin Jairaj-US Presswire

San Antonio Spurs veteran swingman Stephen Jackson is expected to miss approximately four to six weeks after after suffering an injury to the pinky finger on his right hand.

Jackson suffered a non-displaced fracture to the finger during the Spurs Monday night 92-87, home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The injury occurred with under one minute remaining in the first quarter and Jackson was promptly taken from the court to the back for x-rays on the finger which showed the fracture.

Jackson was in the midst of his second start of the season taking the place of second-year player Kawhi Leonard at the small forward position who is currently out due to quadriceps tendinitis in his left knee. Jackson is currently averaging 7.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and one steal per game this season through 10 games while playing 23.2 minutes per contest.

Throughout Jackson’s 12-year career the swingman has averaged 15.8 points, four rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.3 steals per game and is known for being one of the better perimeter defenders in the Association as well as one of the most fierce competitors around.

The Spurs will lean on Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and Nando de Calo to play extended minutes until both Leonard and Jackson are healthy enough to return to the San Antonio rotation. The Spurs are currently 8-3 and sit in first place in the Southwest division. Up next for San Antonio will be a trip to the TD Garden to take on the Boston Celtics who are currently 6-5 and searching for answers on how to right the ship.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Watch Spurs HC Popovich Pull Fast One On Parker

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has become synonymous for his cold shoulder handling of the media, but he does have a wry sense of humor on occasion. This little clip is hilarious how he just messes with Tony Parker. I couldn't stop laughing.

Barkley Calls Leonard Best Player In The World

Kawhi Leonard is one of the best young players in the NBA today and there's no disputing that. Charles Barkley however, believes that Leonard is the best player in the entire world and there has never been a more ridiculous statement to come out of his mouth. If you take Leonard away from the Spurs, they would find a way to be competitive. Take LeBron James or Stephen Curry away from their teams, and they don't have a chance.
