Jackson lingering on Bucks' bench, role uncertain



MILWAUKEE (AP) -- After spending most of last week sitting on the bench, Stephen Jackson isn't sure where he stands with the Milwaukee Bucks.

   Jackson has played a total of just over nine minutes in the Bucks' past five games. He sat out one game because of an NBA suspension, and Bucks coach Scott Skiles benched him for three others.

   Jackson says he will continue to prepare for games and respect his coaches, adding, "Everybody knows I want to play. That's not a secret." He wouldn't say if he had requested a trade.

   Skiles missed Monday's practice because of an illness. Assistant Jim Boylan said coaches will discuss Jackson's potential return to the team's rotation.
