Kings’ Jackson to miss playoff opener

Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) – Sacramento Kings guard Bobby Jackson is
expected to miss Sunday’s playoff opener against the Dallas Mavericks due to
the same abdominal injury that has plagued him for the last two months.

Jackson, the team’s backup point guard, missed 28 of the last 29 games of the
regular season.

Last year’s NBA Sixth Man of the Year, averaged 13.8 points in 50 games this
season. With no other backup to starting point man Mike Bibby, the Kings will
look to Doug Christie and Anthony Peeler to spell Bibby.
