Will Ginobili Return Prior to Playoffs?
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says injured guard Manu Ginobili is “progressing” in his rehabilitation from a strained right hamstring.
One day — perhaps soon — the team’s medical staff will clear the 35-year-old sixth man for full contact. Then, a familiar dance will begin.
Popovich hasn’t ruled out a return for Ginobili at some point over the final three games of the regular season.
“It’s going to be a scary decision,” Popovich said. “If you go too early and he’s not ready, he’d probably be done for the playoffs.”
