Twitter: Stephen Jackson tweeted that he is headed to New York to see a doctor. Seeing as it probably wouldn’t make sense to fly halfway across the continent to see a general practitioner, it seems a safe guess (but, of course, only a guess) that he is there to see a back specialist.

Oddly, on the same day Jackson ventured to New York, the Knicks also unveiled their newest signing, Baron Davis, who will miss substantial time with a back injury.
