Captain Jack Out For The Season?

The Warriors played with only eight players against Denver on Saturday, and one of the missing may miss the rest of the season. Team Captain and leading scorer Stephen Jackson will undergo surgery on his left big toe Tuesday in Houston and will most likely miss the seven remaining games.

The injury is considered an "old" injury, the result of a turf toe Jackson suffered back in 2007.  The toe injury recently resurfaced and the team has decided to get it fixed and shut him down for the rest of the season.  Jackson had averaged 20.7 points per game this season and was second in the league in minutes played per game (39.6).

As for the game, the Warriors were also without Corey Maggette (head contusion), Marco Belinelli (right ankle), Andris Biedrins (left ankle) and Jermareo Davidson (left foot).  Golden State's eight healthy players put up a fight, for a half at least. Down by nine entering the second half, the undermanned Warriors were outscored 38-17 in the third quarter, eventually losing 129-116 to the Nuggets in Denver.
