Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-03-29

Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-03-29
Stephen Jackson is done for the season. Brandan Wright might be next.

After consulting with the Rockets' team physician in Houston, Jackson has elected to have surgery on his sore left foot Tuesday in Houston. His season is over.

Jackson has complained of a sore big toe off and on since the 2007 playoffs. He says the pain has been more on than off this season, and when it got to the point where it was affecting his game, he decided to have a specialist take a look.

Turns out the problem was bone fragments in his foot. The operation is considered rather routine, but not routine enough to have him back in action before season's end on April 15.

Jackson will finish the season as the team leader in scoring (20.7), assists (6.5) and probably minutes per game (39.6). All are career highs, topping previous bests set last season (20.1 points, 4.1 assists, 39.1 minutes).

Wright re-injured his left shoulder Tuesday in San Antonio, and when the pain was severe Wednesday, he begged out early in the Dallas game. He sat out Saturday's trip finale in Denver.

The second-year forward was to be examined upon returning to Oakland on Sunday. Being that he missed more than two months after partially dislocating the same shoulder earlier this season, it's quite possible he also will be shut down the rest of the campaign.

NUGGETS 129, WARRIORS 116: The Warriors suited up only eight players for their trip finale, one of whom hadn't played in the first three games of the trip. Welcome back, Jamal Crawford.

Stepping immediately back into his starting guard slot after sitting out six games in a row, Crawford came out firing, hitting almost half of his 3-pointers (five of 11) and almost half of his shots overall (10 of 21) during a 30-point effort. However, it wasn't nearly enough to keep the Warriors in the game. Golden State outscored Denver by 17 in the fourth quarter just to get within 13 at the end.
