SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- San Antonio Spurs swingman Stephen Jackson is expected to miss four to six weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture to his right pinkie finger during Monday night's home game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Jackson sustained the fracture late in the first quarter, leaving the court with less than a minute remaining in the period for X-rays.
He was starting his second game in place of Kawhi Leonard, who is out with quadriceps tendinitis in his left knee.
Jackson is averaging 8.3 points this season while making 10 of 34 3-point attempts for the Spurs (8-2).
