Stephen Jackson is ready to return to the basketball court, nearly four weeks removed from a fracture in his right pinkie finger. His initial timetable was four to six weeks, meaning he should be nearing a comeback.
Jackson hinted on Twitter following San Antonio’s 103-88 victory over Boston that he would play in Monday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The sight of his legendary Game 6 performance — in which he scored 23 points on seven attempts — would be a welcome sight for Jackson, who was shooting 37.1 percent from the field in 10 games prior to the injury.
It also gives him a chance to mend the fences with forward Serge Ibaka, following his public apology.
