San Antonio Spurs small forward Stephen Jackson will reportedly miss the next four to six weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right pinky finger.
Jackson suffered the fracture in the first quarter after deflecting the ball out of bounds.
The injury further depletes the small forward position — following Kawhi Leonard’s quadriceps injury that will sideline him for the next 10 to 14 days — leaving the Spurs with a mismatch of replacement combo guards to fill their roles.
