Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will not play against the Denver Nuggets

Two of the Big Three did not travel with the team to Colorado. Per the San Antonio Spurs' official press release: Tim Duncan (rest) and Manu Ginobili (rest) did not accompany the team to Denver and will miss [Friday's] Spurs-Nuggets game. What with Manu playing so well this year, I was hoping that the plan would be to get him rest on the regular. But the timing of this is just a little suspect. It's obvious that he simply ate too much turkey, right? Tim must have as well, I guess.

Popovich says Spurs’ goal to keep Ginobili ‘whole’

SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs hope to protect Manu Ginobili from further injury by sitting him for the next two games, coach Gregg Popovich said before Wednesday night’s game with Denver. The Spurs announced earlier in the day that Ginobili would miss the next two games with bilateral hip tightness. hE will be re-evaluated before

Jonathon Simmons recalled from Austin Spurs

Just a quick bit of housekeeping after the news that Manu Ginobili would be out for at least a couple of games. With Jonathon Simmons getting his second call-up from the Austin Spurs and Manu out, we'll hopefully get to see Simmons get some extended playing time. From what I've seen of his play, I'd love to see him get a legit shot in actual play to crack the rotation.  Simmons posted 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-5 FT), 4 rebounds and 4 assists vs. Grand Rapids on Nov. 17 in his only appearance with Austin this season.

Manu Ginobili out for two games: hip tightness

The Argentine has been playing fantastic basketball, and now he'll be taking a rest. From the official San Antonio Spurs injury report: Spurs guard Manu Ginobili (bilateral hip tightness) will miss the next two games.  He will be re-evaluated prior to Saturday's game vs. Memphis. Not good news.

Manu Ginobili is still a big part of San Antonio's success

Even as Manu Ginobili's bald spot grows, as his athleticism deteriorates, as his body prevents him from replicating the magic of his younger years, he's still the same cold-blooded basketball killer when the Spurs need him most. With Portland mounting a comeback in the fourth quarter, Gregg Popovich inserted Ginobili to stop the bleeding. In the span of two minutes, Ginobili scored nine consecutive points, culminating in a dagger 3-pointer from above the arc. What once was a three-point lead ballooned to 10 points under Ginobili. After not scoring in the first half, Ginobili responded with...

Spurs hold off Blazers thanks to fourth quarter heroics from Manu Ginobili

All in all, I enjoyed the second half more. Game 10 Vs. Portland: Spurs 93, Blazers 80  Rec: 8-2  1st in Southwest, 2nd in West   Streak: W-5 Another double-digit win in front of the home crowd at the AT&T Center and that makes five on the trot, yet not all was hunky dory in Spurs-land. One would assume that if anyone would be happy with the performance it would be Manu Ginobili, who scored 14 of his season-high 17 points in the fourth quarter, including nine in a row for the Spurs to cinch the win. Yet he was far from thrilled afterward, and well, let's hear it from the future...
