Manu Ginobili ended up with 10 points over 17 minutes off the bench in Saturday's victory against the Timberwolves.
Ginobili hit 4-of-6 from the field and he added 2-of-2 from the free-throw line, and he added three rebounds, three assists and two steals with a plus-11 rating. He has back-to-back double-digit point totals for the first time since Jan. 28-30. He remains far more useful to his real team than he does to fantasy owners at this point of his career.

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play vs. the Rockets on Monday.

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is also sitting out in the first half of the Spurs' back-to-back set. The NBA's front office probably won't be happy about the DNP-CD in a high-profile game, but Ginobili's absence shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups. Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes should pick up extra minutes with Manu out on Monday.
Mar 11 - 6:28 PM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) returned to action on Wednesday with 17 points (7-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

Ginobili looked fine in 20 minutes, which is right around where his playing time has hovered this season. True to form as a veteran leader, Manu called out his teammates afterward for feeling self-pity when LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) left tonight's game early. "It's a terrible mistake [to feel that way]," he said. "We said, 'OK, we're missing a lot of guys,' and we stopped executing when we needed it most." The Spurs need Manu far more than fantasy owners do.
Mar 1 - 1:16 AM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) said he plans to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Ginobili was initially injured last Friday when he took a shot to the chest in a loss to the Nuggets. He was unable to play on Sunday, but is on track to return for Wednesday's contest. Manu will eat into Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills' minutes upon his return.

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) will not play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Ginobili isn't dealing with a serious injury, but it doesn't take much for the 40-year-old to hit the sidelines. His minutes will be divvied up between Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Feb 25 - 2:08 PM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cavs.

Danny Green didn't appear on the injury report, so maybe he's back to help the backcourt rotation. If Manu is out, that should give more minutes to Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills.
Feb 24 - 4:06 PM

Manu Ginobili (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. Cleveland.

Ginobili had three points, one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Friday, but took a shot to the chest and needed X-rays after the game. He was in obvious pain during a post-game interview, but we should get an update on his status at Saturday's practice. Expect to see more of Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes if Ginobili can't go.
Feb 24 - 12:30 AM

Manu Ginobili is not on the injury report for Friday against the Nuggets.

This confirms that the Spurs didn't think Ginobili's injury is severe. The Spurs have a really tough schedule to finish this season, but they're still going to rest Manu at times to close the 2017-18 campaign.
Feb 22 - 4:25 PM

Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said that the foot injury Manu Ginobili suffered Tuesday night does not "appear to be anything severe."

Ginobili was injured midway through the third quarter of Tuesday's night loss to Denver. He limped to the locker room and was unable to return. However, both the X-rays and the MRI came back negative. "It didn't appear to be anything severe," Buford said. "He got treatment, saw people and then left on his All-Star vacation plans." The Spurs don't play again until next Friday, so Manu will have plenty of time to rest and should be good to go after the break.
Feb 16 - 9:20 AM

Manu Ginobili exited Tuesday's game due to pain in his right foot, but the X-rays came back negative.

Ginobili went to the locker room and took a trainer with him mid-way through the third quarter on Tuesday. He was later ruled out and did not return. However, the X-rays came back clean and, according to Spurs beat writer Jeff McDonald, "the team expects to find no serious injury in further tests planned for Wednesday." San Antonio doesn't play again until after the All-Star break, on February 23rd, so Manu will have plenty of time to rest the foot.
Feb 14 - 10:08 AM

Manu Ginobili went to the locker room and took a trainer with him mid-way through the third quarter on Tuesday due to pain in his right foot and is having X-rays.

He won't return to the game and it was a non-contact injury, according to Caron Butler's report from the sidelines. He had eight points in 14 minutes before leaving, but is clearly more valuable to the Spurs than fantasy owners. Danny Green, Bryn Forbes, Tony Parker and a host of Spurs wings would see a boost if Ginobili's injury turns out to be serious, but he plays so few minutes there probably isn't a must-pickup either way.
Feb 14 - 12:15 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

The veteran has sat out the second half of the past three back-to-back sets for which he was healthy, and he's coming off a 22-minute performance on Monday. It's unclear why the Spurs would add him to the injury report if he wasn't being rested -- perhaps he'll be in uniform and technically 'available' but won't leave the bench. He's someone to avoid tonight.
Feb 13 - 2:40 PM

Manu Ginobili ended up with 13 points over 19 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 122-105 loss at Golden State.

Ginobili hit 5-of-13 from the field, including 3-of-8 from behind the 3-point line, while adding six assists and one rebound with just one turnover. The ageless wonder saw a little extra playing time with Danny Green and Bryn Forbes struggling and Dejounte Murray and Tony Parker out due to injury. Ginobili took advantage, but he still remains nothing more than a low-end fantasy option in deeper leagues at this point of his career.
Feb 10 - 11:16 PM

Manu Ginobili was good for 13 points across 25 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 120-111 loss against the Jazz.

Ginobili hit 5-of-9 from the floor, including 1-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, as it was turn-back-the-clock night. He and Tony Parker were two of just five Spurs with double-digit point totals. He appears to be good to go after a thigh injury slowed him last week, but he remains nothing more than a deeper league fantasy option at this juncture.
Feb 4 - 12:31 AM

Manu Ginobili (thigh) returned to action on Sunday with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Manu wound up missing six games and the rest did him well -- he made 6-of-13 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws tonight, and helped the Spurs overcome a poor first half for a 113-98 home win. The Spurs have a light schedule heading into the All-Star break, so Manu's deep-league owners shouldn't have to contend with many DNP-CDs the next few weeks.
