Manu Ginobili scored 16 points with two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.
With Tony Parker as the only active point guard, Manu picked up some added playing time as the second unit ball handler. If Patty Mills (calf) needs to miss more time, Ginobili could see meaningful minutes in the mid 20s. Plus, the Spurs do not have any back-to-backs for their three games this week. There are worse players to use this week in deep leagues. Jan 14 - 9:22 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) had three points, two boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes vs. the Bulls.

Manu has actually flirted with late-round roto value on a per-game basis, but frequent DNPs take a heavy toll on his value. More rest days are a given as the Spurs cruise toward the postseason, and the wire in 12-team leagues should be brimming with superior rest-of-season upside.

Manu Ginobili (rest) will play Sunday vs. Chicago.

Ginobili sat out the past two games for rest purposes, but he'll be back out there tonight. He's only averaging 19.3 minutes a game this season, which isn't enough playing time to trust him in standard leagues.

Manu Ginobili is not on the injury report for Sunday against the Bulls.

He did not travel for the two road games in Los Angeles and Portland, but Ginobili should be all set for the Christmas home game. He's playing just 19.3 minutes per game this season and doesn't have much value.

Manu Ginobili (rest) did not travel with the Spurs for their two-game road trip.

That means he will not play on Thursday night against the Clippers or in Portland on Friday. Ginobili has played well with 14.5 points per game in 19.0 minutes over his last two. With him out, there should be more Jonathon Simmons while Danny Green should see a little added run.

Manu Ginobili scored a season-high 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Sunday, hitting 3-of-5 threes with one board, one assist, one steal and one block in just 18 minutes.

The 3-pointers were also a season-high for the 39-year-old reserve guard. The Pelicans came in allowing 116.4 points over their past five games, which is considerably worse than the league-worst Nets defense (allowing 114.6 ppg), and Ginobili was the beneficiary of some lenient defense tonight. He gave a great speech during Tim Duncan's post-game jersey retirement ceremony, but tonight's throwback performance doesn't make Manu a viable option outside of deep leagues.

Manu Ginobili missed all nine shots from the field and didn't go to the line on Thursday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 18 minutes.

The rest hasn't really helped him much. He's rested in two of the last five, making just 27.3 percent from the field in his other three. Ginobili isn't a fantasy option.

Manu Ginobili is expected to be rested against the Wolves on Tuesday.

He will be uniform, but the Spurs will only use him in emergency situations. If he doesn't end up playing, this would be his third maintenance day over the last six games.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 07:39:00 PM

Manu Ginobili scored 13 points with seven assists, one rebound, one triple and three steals in 24 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He's picked up two maintenance days over the last five games and the Spurs are going to monitor his workload all year. He's still got some gas left in the tank, but he can't be trusted outside of very deep leagues.

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and this is likely to be a pattern for Ginobili and other Spurs' veterans throughout the season. Occasional DNPs are one more reason to leave Ginobili on the waiver wire.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 07:16:00 PM

Manu Ginobili scored 13 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two treys in 23 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.

Ginobili was rested on Saturday vs. the Wizards and it wouldn't be a shock if he picked up another maintenance day on Wednesday vs. Dallas on the second night of a back-to-back set. Look for Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons to pick up the slack if that's the case.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 12:00:00 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Wizards.

Manu is averaging 19.1 minutes per game this season. With Manu sitting out Saturday, Patty Mills, Jonathon Simmons and Kyle Anderson could see a slight increase in playing time.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 01:57:00 PM

Manu Ginobili returned to action on Sunday, posting four points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five turnovers in 28 minutes off the bench.

The veteran sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, something his deep-league owners will have to live with during some back-to-back sets this year. He may not play much these days, but Manu's efficiency is still marvelous -- last year he averaged 17.6 points, 2.2 threes, 4.6 boards, 5.6 assists and 2.1 steals on a per-36-minute basis.

Manu Ginobili is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Heat.

The Spurs rested both Ginobili and Tony Parker on the front end of their back-to-back set on Saturday, and now it's LaMarcus Aldridge's turn to rest. Even with Danny Green (thigh) out, Ginobili is only expected to see around 20 minutes.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 05:07:00 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will rest against the Pelicans on Saturday.

With Ginobili out, there figures to be more minutes headed to Jonathon Simmons, Kyle Anderson and Bryn Forbes. Coach Gregg Popovich will always lean on his situational players, so it looks like Simmons is in the best spot best on the style and personnel of the Pelicans. With Parker and Manu out, PG Kawhi should be in full effect.
