NEW YORK -- Spurs forward Stephen Jackson left San Antonio's 100-83 loss to the Knicks Thursday night after spraining his right ankle when he crashed into a waitress working the sideline in front of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Jackson did not return.

Jackson was hurt in the first quarter when he shot a 3-pointer from the corner. The shot missed and he stepped backward out of bounds and onto the waitress, who was kneeling in front of courtside seats.

It was unclear if the waitress was serving Bloomberg, who was seen eating a box of popcorn shortly after the play.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
