Manu Ginobili played just 26 minutes on Wednesday, but still racked up 18 points, three rebounds, nine assists and three 3-pointers on 7-of-14 shooting.

He's now scored in double figures in seven of his last eight games, and is averaging nearly 15 points, 9.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last three games. It looks like he is going to have the ball in his hands a lot with Tony Parker's regular season in doubt and should be a very strong play with four games next week. However, the Spurs play back-to-backs on Monday and Tuesday, and we are slightly concerned that Gregg Popovich might give him one of those nights off, especially since they probably won't need him on Tuesday against Minnesota. But if Manu was dropped in your league, pick him up.
