"I'm Optimistic, but I have doubts, I have fears." While the 36-year-old said he will make his decision within the next two weeks, he also added that he and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich have an agreement that he will not play in the World Cup if he is still feeling pain.

During a press conference in Argentina, Manu Ginobili confirmed that his stress fracture is in the same spot as his 2009 injury, however, it is not as serious.

While the Spurs have yet to offer a timetable for Manu's recovery, this type of injury generally takes 2-3 months to completely heal. Manu stated that he would like to wait another 3-4 weeks before deciding if he'll participate in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, but obviously that's looking extremely doubtful at the moment.

Manu Ginobili has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right leg and he's not expected to play for Argentina in the FIBA World Cup this summer.

The Spurs found "the early stages of a stress fracture" during a physical conducted after the season, and Ginobili is in the process of getting a second opinion. The good news is that the 36-year-old is expected to recover in two months, and he should be "fully functional" for the start of training camp.

Manu Ginobili will play for Argentina in the FIBA World Cup in Spain this summer.

He has already confirmed he will be back for a chance to repeat with the Spurs next season. Ginobili will turn 37 in July and the Spurs will continue to rest him during the regular season in preparation for another postseason run. He's not a very attractive pick in fantasy leagues with the DNP-CDs.

Manu Ginobili confirmed that he will return with the Spurs for the 2014-15 season.

"My idea is to honor the two-year deal I signed last year," said Ginobili, who will earn $7 million in the final year of his contract. He said in a recent interview that he hopes to play "one [or] two more years" in the NBA, so he may be looking for another short-term deal at age 37 next summer.

Manu Ginobili is undecided on whether or not he will play in this summer's World Cup of Basketball.

Fresh off the Spurs' NBA Championship, Ginobili said he hasn't decided yet on if he'll play with Argentina at this summer's World Cup of Basketball in Spain but would make a decision by the end of the week. The 36-year-old averaged 14.4 points, 2.0 3-pointers, 3.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.0 steals against the Heat and should be a solid late-round pick in fantasy drafts as long as he decides to continue playing next season.

Manu Ginobili scored 19 points with 3-pointers, four rebounds and four assists to help the Spurs win the 2014 NBA Championship on Sunday with a 104-87 victory over the visiting Heat.

He scored six straight points to cut into an early Miami lead and he nearly blew the roof off the AT&T Center with a throwdown dunk in traffic. With averages of 14.4 points on 50.0 percent shooting and 4.4 assists in the Finals this season, Manu exorcised the demons of his poor play vs. Miami in 2013. He said in a recent interview that he plans to play "one [or] two more years" in the NBA, and his play on Sunday confirms that he has plenty of tread left on his tires.

Manu Ginobili (foot) is banking on the Spurs' experience as a factor that will help them beat the Heat.

The Spurs enter Tuesday's Game 3 having lost home-court advantage to the Heat, but Ginobili's confidence isn't shaken. "We know they are not unbelievable," Ginobili said. "They are a great team. But we've done it before." Ginobili is averaging 17.5 points, 2.5 3-pointers, 3.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, and 2.0 steals so far in the NBA Finals and the Spurs will need him to continue his strong play if they have any chance of de-throning the champs.

Manu Ginobili ran the point for much of Saturday's 112-107 win over the Thunder in Game 6, scoring 15 points with six boards, five assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He hit a huge 3-pointer with less than one minute left, but missed a buzzer-beater to send the game to overtime. Cory Joseph couldn't quite get things going on offense while Patty Mills was a bit careless, so it was Manu's responsibility to handle the ball. If Tony Parker (ankle) needs to miss more time, Manu will have a lot on his shoulders. Game 1 of the NBA Finals will take place on June 5 in San Antonio.

Manu Ginobili was magnificent during Game 5's blowout 117-89 win on Thursday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 19 points with four boards, six assists, three 3-pointers and no turnovers.

The Spurs have won their three games in this series by a total of 80 points, which makes this one of the more puzzling series in recent memory. Ginobili was a surgeon with the ball and the Spurs offense was running like clockwork. The Spurs had a efficient true shooting percentage of 63.3 tonight and are basically impossible to beat when they're at their best.
