A collective moan was heard from Bobcats fans around the globe when Stephen Jackson grimaced in pain after hyperextending his knee on Sunday. However, an MRI taken Monday morning showed no structural damage to Charlotte Bobcats’ star guard.
Jackson has a small bone bruise and is listed as day to day.
“It’s always good to have two days off before the next game,” Jackson said. “Hopefully it will work to my advantage. It’ll get me time to rest and give me time for my knee to get stronger than it is right now.”
No one doubts Jack’s determination. “I think if the MRI said he had an ACL injury, he’d play anyway.” Said Coach Brown.
Although Jack did not practice on Monday, he expects to start for Game 2 tomorrow night in Orlando.
