Will Manu Ginobili Miss Significant Time?
Manu Ginobili added to the lengthy list of injuries he’s suffered in his 11th NBA season with a strained left hamstring that forced him to miss the second half of Sunday’s 106-88 victory over the Timberwolves.
It is at least the fourth injury Ginobili — nicknamed “El Contusión” by former teammate Brent Barry — has incurred this season. In addition to a sore foot in the preseason, he has missed three regular-season contests with back spasms and a thigh contusion.
Head coach Gregg Popovich said Ginobili will be re-evaluated today. From the tone of Stephen Jackson’s comments, he’s anticipating Ginobili will miss some time. The Spurs’ next game is Wednesday at home against Memphis.
