McCarney: DeJuan Blair inserted into starting lineup, Jackson out


According to Dan McCarney of the San Antonio Express-News, forward Stephen Jackson will miss tonight’s game.

DeJuan Blair, whose averaging 6.7 points and 7.3 rebounds in 19 minutes per game, will replace forward Boris Diaw in the starting lineup.

A stomach virus is going around the team as Matt Bonner and Tony Parker are both ill but are likely to play.

As a result, second-year guard Cory Joseph will be in uniform tonight against the 2-3 Sacramento Kings.
