Cap\n Jack revealed to the Charlotte Observer that his left index finger is becoming a growing concern: “Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson is a tough guy, so when he looked up in the post-game locker room to say he’s in ‘excruciating pain,’ I took notice. He had his left hand wrapped in ice, and while X-rays detected no fracture, this is affecting him. The diagnosis is a bruised ligament at the base of Jackson’s left index finger. It started bothering him a month ago when he slapped down on a ball while attempting a steal. It’s getting progressively worse.and while it isn’t certain this affects his shooting, I doubt it’s a coincidence he shot 10-of-40 the past two games.”
