Manu Ginobili SG SA 2 Days

Ginobili will be held out Monday against Portland due to a lower back contusion.

Ginobili apparently suffered the injury during Sunday's win over Denver, in which he had 15 points and six assists in 24 minutes. On the second half of a back-to-back, it's quite possible he's being held out as a precaution more than anything else.

Ginobili posted 15 points, one rebound, and six assists in 24 minutes of action Sunday against the Nuggets.

Ginobili is averaging 12.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers made for the season. While his averages don't pop off the charts, he's still a solid option in standard leagues, as he's a major part of the Spurs' offense, and he'll continue to play well as log as he's healthy.

Ginobili returned Friday from a night of rest Wednesday, scoring 18 points, but making just three of his eight attempts from beyond the arc.

On the night Ginobili shot 6-for-16, and turned the ball over four times in 31 minutes. The veteran, like Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, didn't play Wednesday against the Knicks. Expect Ginobili to continue to take games off from time to time, as we've come to expect from the Spurs.

Ginobili (rest) will be given the night off Wednesday, Project Spurs' Paul Garcia reports.

The Spurs will be very shorthanded Wednesday, meaning Danny Green and Marco Belinelli should see significant run on the wing. Look for Ginobili to return to the court Friday.

Ginobili (rest) will miss Wednesday's game against the Knicks, ESPN Radio San Antonio reports.

Ginobili will join Tim Duncan on the bench Wednesday, both receiving days off for some rest. With Patty Mills, Tony Parker and Kawahi also out Wednesday, Cory Joseph, Danny Green and Marco Belinelli will likely receive a good chunk of minutes.

Ginobili could be rested for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Both Tim Duncan and Ginobili are listed as questionable by the Spurs for Wednesday's matchup with the Knicks. Considering San Antonio is on the second night of a back-to-back and the Knicks are the opponent, there looks to be a good chance one or both of the aging veterans could sit out. Ginobili played 28 minutes in Tuesday's loss to Utah, shooting just 3-of-17 from the floor.

Ginobili returned from a shoulder injury that kept him out for one game, but went just 3-for-17 from the floor in 28 minutes of faction.

Ginobili did have eight assists, but the shooting likely hurt owners in the Spurs' surprising loss to the Jazz. This isn't a regular problem for the 37-year-old, though, and his shoulder seems to be fine now after keeping him out of Saturday's game.

Ginobili (shoulder) is not available for Saturday's game against the Spurs, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Ginobili scored 28 points (10-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), with three rebounds, four assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Pacers.

This line came out of nowhere as Ginobili had only scored 19 points across his previous four games. He still has the ability to post big lines so consider adding Ginobili on nights when there are minimal games scheduled.

Ginobili scored 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), with five assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Warriors.

Ginobili (rest) was originally considered questionable for the game, but put up a strong outing during his team's win. It looked as though he may not go on Tuesday night, but leave it to Gregg Popovich to surprise us all.
