Bucks Vs. Bulls: Milwaukee's Stephen Jackson To Miss Game Against Chicago

The Milwaukee Bucks won't have small forward Stephen Jackson as they face the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday, according to Kurt Helin of ProBasketballTalk. Helin reports that Jackson will be missing the game with a hamstring injury.

Jackson, acquired from Charlotte during the offseason, has struggled to find his footing with the Bucks so far. He began the season as a starter and one of the team's key rotation players, but he's totally fallen out of favor with coach Scott Skiles lately. Since the beginning of February, Jackson has averaged just 19 minutes per game, down from the 36 minutes he averaged with Charlotte last year.

Things have gotten bad enough that Jackson didn't play in Milwaukee's most recent game against the Orlando Magic despite being active. While he's averaged 10.5 points per game with the Bucks, he's shooting a brutal 36 percent from the field. Over Jackson's past five games, he's shot a combined 7-of-29 (24 percent).
