The flu bug is biting again ... this time it gets Stephen Jackson

Some flu.

Looks like it’s going to get Stephen Jackson now.

Jackson wasn’t at Warriors’ shootaround on Tuesday and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic.

The flu bug, apparently, is getting around. And it's got a bite.

Last week, Brandan Wright missed three games because of the flu, and Ronny Turiaf two.

Both those players are expected to play tonight.

Corey Maggette will miss his fifth consecutive game tonight because of a hamstring injury. He already has missed eight of the team’s first 24 games because of the injury.

More Warriors news ...

WITH A TWIST OR TWO, ORLANDO'S OTIS SMITH COULD BE WARRIORS GM

    I wonder if that's the reason he had such a lethargic effort against Nuggets. Probably on a back-to-back on the road in the Mile High City was tough too. Then again, are these any excuses for why our "team leader" should be complaining to the refs after every non-call so his team has to play 4 on 5 defense? I wonder if the coaches preach to Sjax during practice he needs to stop doing that.

    Seems like Jack didn't whine as much until he "got his $" then we see his true colors. Give it another 6 months and he'll want out.

    We need Nellie to catch the flu back to Maui.

    I think it's for the best. It seems like SJax is still bothered by that left wrist as his shooting went from bad to atrocious the last couple of games.

    I'd rather have him sit until Monta comes back and rest that wrist.

    This is gonna be a great game to watch for people (like myself) that want to watch the young guys play a whole lot. With Maggette and Jackson out, there's 80 minutes of extra PT for everyone else.
