Found January 05, 2013 on Project Spurs:
We all saw it, San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson tripping over a sideline waitress during the recent Spurs-Knicks matchup in New York City which caused him to injure his ankle. It was bad enough to keep Jackson out of the game as the Spurs went on to lose to the Knicks, snapping their 7-game winning streak. And although there is no word on whether he will play tonight against the 76ers, Jackson did tweet photos of his ankle and from the looks of things, it doesn't look bad.  Check out Jackson's injured ankle which doesn't look too bad and he seems to be in good spirits considering he also snapped a photo of him getting a manicure.
