Stack shooting for Sunday return

Caught up with Jerry Stackhouse this morning and, as usual, he was in great spirits. Rehab for his strained right groin has gone well and he sees the light at the end of the injury tunnel.

“Feeling good,” he said. “I’m shooting for Sunday.”

A two-game road trip to the Pacific Northwest ends Sunday at Seattle. That’s the second-to-the-last game of the regular season, which ends April 16 against New Orleans at American Airlines Center.

Stackhouse’s timetable should help with the recovery process, since it allows for two days off between the last two games and another break before the playoffs start. He may practice Friday. Stackhouse has missed the last five games and being out until Sunday would make it eight.

In other injury news, Malik Allen (back spasms) is improving, but he remains questionable for tonight’s visit by the Sonics.
