Manu Ginobili scored 27 points off the bench against the Mavericks on Wednesday with two boards, four assists, five 3-pointers and six turnovers.

The Spurs turned the ball over 24 times tonight and had nine in the first quarter. They also didn't get to the line at all in the first frame, but did end up shooting 18-of-29 in the following three. Ginobili's minutes were at just 23 and they probably would have been higher had this game been close. The Spurs will head to Dallas for Game 3 on Saturday.

Manu Ginobili (personal) was back at practice on Monday after his wife gave birth to a baby boy.

He should be ready to go for Wednesday's Game 2 now that he's already back at practice. Ginobili didn't have his best game on Sunday with four turnovers and shooting 4-of-10 from the field, but he did score 17 points with three 3-pointers in 31 minutes in the win. He played just 22.8 minutes per game on the season and should be closer to 30 as the Spurs make a run.

Manu Ginobili will not play vs. the Suns on Friday.

He's been battling a calf injury and has been hurt quite a bit in the past couple seasons, so coach Gregg Popovich likely had this game in mind for rest. Ginobili can be cut in most formats while Patty Mills will carry the second unit for offense.

Manu Ginobili played 29 minutes off the bench against the Mavericks on Thursday with 10 points, two boards, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

It wasn't his best game and he had five turnovers, but his team still pulled out the win. Ginobili has a minor bruised calf injury and there's a very good chance he'll be sitting out on Friday night vs. the Suns. His fantasy owners can probably cut him if there's a guy that won't last on the wire.

Manu Ginobili (bruised calf) will play vs. the Mavericks on Thursday.

It wouldn't be a surprise if the Spurs hold him out of Friday's game as a precaution, but his availability vs. Dallas confirms that the injury was never serious. Tony Parker (back) is out and Aron Baynes (ribs) is questionable, but it appears the Spurs will have all of their healthy players available.

Gregg Popovich "didn't seem overly concerned" about the calf contusion Manu Ginobili suffered during Tuesday's game.

Manu got kicked in the back of the leg and didn't return to the game, but he said afterward that he expects to be fine in 24 hours. Whether he'll play vs. the Mavericks on Thursday remains an open question, however, as the Spurs are sure to play it safe with their 36-year-old stalwart.

Manu Ginobili left Tuesday's blowout loss with a left calf contusion and will not return.

It's hard to say how injured he is since the Wolves are destroying the Spurs, but it is worth noting that Gregg Popovich said earlier he wants to get Manu some more minutes down the stretch to get him ready for the playoffs. With this injury, that plan could be scrapped.

Manu Ginobili will sit out Thursday's game to rest, but all other healthy Spurs will be available.

This means Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter avoided the dreaded DNP-CD and can be deployed as usual. It's a relief for fantasy owners considering the Spurs are playing their fifth game in seven nights, but Manu's owners won't be able to share in the good vibes.

Manu Ginobili scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block over just 19 minutes in the Spurs' 111-90 takedown of the Warriors on Wednesday.

Tony Parker went for 18 and eight, Tim Duncan went for 15 and eight, Kawhi Leonard scored 11 points with four steals, Danny Green scored five points with a three and a block, Patty Mills scored 13 points with a three, Marco Belinelli scored 12 points and Tiago Splitter went for nine and five in the blowout.
