Stephen Jackson seemed to have re-injured his ankle Wedensday night against the Orlando Magic as he played just nineteen minutes.

Today, Jackson is scheduled to have an MRI on the ankle, according to Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News.  Jackson stated that the ankle that will be checked on is one that he suffered against the New York Knicks back on January 3rd.

“It’s the same ankle as the New York game, and it happened the same way — somebody stepped on my foot,” Jackson said. “I tried to play through it, and I shouldn’t have done that.”

Editor Note: MRI did come back that Jackson suffered a mild sprain to his ankle.
