Manu Ginobili scored three points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

With the Spurs wanting to get into a rhythm for the playoffs, Ginobili should see some increased minutes the rest of the way. He's still not someone fantasy owners should trust unless you're streaming.
Apr 9 - 12:10 AM

Manu Ginobili (quad) is available to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

Whether he plays or not is a different question, but Ginobili should be healthy for the postseason. Bryn Forbes probably won't be quite as good today.
Apr 8 - 6:57 PM

Manu Ginobili (quad) will not play Friday night against the Mavs.

That'll make it just six minutes played over a four-game span for Ginobili. The Spurs have nothing to play for in the regular season and rest is nothing new for Ginobili, so he should be able to turn it on when called upon in the postseason. With him out, Bryn Forbes should be taking on his role as a combo guard in the second unit. He's not worth owning in almost any league, though.
Apr 6 - 4:15 PM

Manu Ginobili (quad) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Lakers.

The Spurs are basically locked in as the No. 2 seed, so there's no reason to play Manu at under 100 percent. Jonathon Simmons should get another start while Bryn Forbes gets in the rotation.
Apr 5 - 3:07 PM

Manu Ginobili (right quadriceps contusion) isn't expected to play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

He wasn't able to return to Tuesday's game vs. Memphis after taking a knee to the thigh, and while he said the injury isn't too bad, he hinted that he will need a few days to recover. Jonathon Simmons and Patty Mills will get a slight bump with Manu out, but Mills is the safer bet to produce.
Apr 4 - 11:58 PM

Manu Ginobili will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies due to a right quadriceps contusion.

He took a knee to the thigh and was in a lot of pain on his way back to the locker room. The Spurs will be cautious with the playoffs looming, so expect some DNPs going forward. Jonathon Simmons and Patty Mills will get a slight bump with Manu out.
Apr 4 - 10:08 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play on Sunday against the Jazz.

The Spurs will be resting a ton of players going forward, so this likely won't be the last day off for Ginobili. Jonathon Simmons figures to get more run and opportunity in the second unit.
Apr 1 - 5:43 PM

Manu Ginobili returned from a day of rest and scored 11 points in 19 minutes vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

He's going to be annoying to own down the stretch because of all the DNPs, so he belongs on the wire outside of deeper leagues. He shot 4-of-7 from the field with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and one triple.
Mar 22 - 2:30 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) and Dejounte Murray (left groin) will not play against the Kings on Sunday.

It's just a game off for Ginobili and he should be ready to go for the next game in Minnesota on Tuesday. Jonathon Simmons should pick up a couple extra minutes, but he's still not really worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 2:15 PM

Manu Ginobili will rest on Thursday vs. the Thunder.

He was incredible on Wednesday with 19 points, five assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes, but the Spurs will hold him out for the second night of a back-to-back set. With Ginobili and Kyle Anderson (knee) out, there should be more minutes available for guys like Danny Green, Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons.
Mar 9 - 12:04 PM

The Spurs erased a 28-point deficit to steal a win vs. the Kings on Wednesday, aided by Manu Ginobili's 19 points, five assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers off the bench.

Manu did his damage in just 25 minutes. "It was a team effort," Gregg Popovich said, "But [Patty Mills], Manu and [David Lee] were pretty special tonight." Manu's 25 minutes don't seem like much, but his energetic performance could earn him a rest day on Thursday, so anyone relying on him should keep a close eye on Rotoworld's player news feed.
Mar 9 - 1:17 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday.

He has been expected to rest even before this weekend, so this isn't a surprise. Ginobili played 21 minutes on Friday, so those minute should go to Jonathon Simmons, Danny Green and maybe Kyle Anderson gets back in the rotation.
Mar 4 - 3:41 PM

Manu Ginobili expects to miss one of the Spurs' back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday.

Manu isn't sure which game he'll sit out, so owners will have to stay tuned. He finished Wednesday's game with nine points and one rebound in 23 minutes, and he got off the hook for a terrible late foul with the shot clock winding down, because Monta Ellis proceeded to brick both of his attempts.
Mar 2 - 1:40 AM

Manu Ginobili scored six points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Clippers on Friday

He didn't need to miss any games due to an ankle injury in his final game before the All-Star break. With the Spurs likely to coast to the No. 2 seed, expect Ginobili to get some days off in the next two months.
