During last night's Los Angeles Clippers/San Antonio Spurs affair, Spurs forward Stephen Jackson attempted to corral a loose ball in the first quarter.As he went for it, Jackson's left hand collided with Clippers guard Willie Green and caused his pinkie finger to dislocate:Jackson's finger injury will cause him to miss 4-6 weeks of action.
Last night against the Clippers, Jackson broke his right pinky. And unfortunately, that’s his shooting hand. As it is, the Spurs aren’t too deep at the 3, so losing Jackson hurts more than it seems.
