Of course it is possible. There may be some notes you can't get depending on what finger you're missing, but playing style can be adjusted to suit your needs. The most disastrous finger to be missing would be your left thumb as it operates the octave key but if you are really really loaded you could probably get a sax specially made for you!
Good luck.
