Spurs Stephen Jackson breaks pinky Monday, out 4-6 weeks

6 Comments

The Spurs have a hole at small forward suddenly.

Stephen Jackson broke the little finger on his right hand during the game with the Clipperss Monday, the team announced. That is his shooting hand, and will be out four to six weeks.

Jackson had been thrust into the starting lineup because of left knee tendonitis for Kawhi Leonard, and he is expected to be out at least another week, maybe more.

Jackson had been coming off the bench and giving San Antonio 8.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.

So, who is going to play the three for the Spurs? Maybe they will go small with some Manu Ginobili, maybe they go with more run for Boris Diaw, Gary Neal or Tiago Splitter.

Know that this is San Antonio, they are not going to rush Leonard back for games in November when they are worried about games in May. Plus, whoever the Spurs plug in will play well for them. Because they always do.
