Found December 16, 2012 on Project Spurs:
The San Antonio Spurs are limping along early in the regular season with Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Jackson and Manu Ginobili suffering various injuries. Ginobili suffered a left thigh contusion in last night's win over Boston and is questionable for the upcoming game versus the Thunder. But the team might be seeing Jackson back on the court.  According to Jackson, he is targeting Monday's clash with Oklahoma City for his return. Cant wait till monday. Gonna b happy to b bak on the court. #GoSpursGo — Stephen Jackson (@DaTrillStak5) December 16, 2012 Jackson suffered a broken finger in his right hand back in November versus the Clippers and was expected to be out 4-6 weeks.  Though Jackson says he will be back Monday, it will ultimately be up to the Spurs training staff to make the final call. Prior to the injury, Jackson was averaging 7.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 assist. Should Jackson be back Monday, he will be a welcomed sight considering Leonard will still be out of action and Ginobili dealing with his injury.
