Stephen Jackson Playing with Broken Bone in Foot


"I think this is the worst one because it’s dealing with my hands. Any time I get hit on it, I get affected by it the rest of the game."

A hit came in the second quarter of Saturday’s 123-88 loss to the Spurs. It was on a pick-and-roll, causing Jackson, who played 14 minutes and scored six points, to sit out the second half.

"It’s not a jammed-finger kind of pain," he said. "I’m already playing with one broken bone in my foot. I don’t think I can deal with two."

He added: "I don’t want to hurt my team or hurt myself. Like I said, I want to figure if there’s something wrong because I definitely think so."
