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. Dec 3 - 1:35 AM

Date:

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.
Nov 30 - 7:16 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.
Nov 30 - 12:00 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.
Nov 26 - 1:57 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.
Oct 30 - 9:06 PM

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.
Oct 30 - 5:07 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.
Oct 29 - 5:05 PM

Manu Ginobili played 21 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's blowout 129-100 win over Warriors.

Ginobili was worth a pickup as one of a few players to have four games on the schedule this week and he basically came through. But on weeks when the Spurs aren't playing the maximum number of games, Ginobili won't be too intriguing in fantasy.
Oct 26 - 1:43 AM

Manu Ginobili said that he isn't thinking about retirement just yet.

"As long as I’m happy and enjoying [basketball] on a daily basis," Ginobili said of delaying his retirement. "That’s [been] my goal in the last two or three years." Entering his 15th NBA season, the 39-year-old SG will likely have a limited role behind Danny Green, especially since he averaged just 19.6 minutes per game in 2015-16. Fantasy owners can do better.
Sep 30 - 9:57 AM

Manu Ginobili finished his esteemed Olympic career on Wednesday with 14 points, seven assists, three rebounds and one steal, before leaving to a standing ovation.

Argentina fielded a roster with Ginobili joined by a veteran core including Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino and Andres Nocioni, but they ultimately fell in the quarterfinals. The Spurs have to be pleased that their 39-year-old guard came out of the competition healthy, but they're still likely to give him extra rest during training camp and the preseason.
Aug 17 - 7:33 PM

Manu Ginobili had 13 points, three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in Argentina's 111-107 double-overtime win vs. Brazil.

Ginobili did not shoot it well (4-of-14 overall, 0-of-8 from deep, 5-of-10 from the foul line), but he played a whopping 38.5 minutes en route to a dramatic win. As for his fantasy value, he's not a player to target in standard formats.
Aug 13 - 3:54 PM

Manu Ginobili scored 22 points during an 81-73 loss to Lithuania on Thursday, adding one rebound, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He tried to take over late in the game, but the Lithuanians were just too good. Ginobili showed he has a lot left in the tank, but playing in 5-8 games is a lot different than an NBA season. He's a legend, but he's not a fantasy target this season.
Aug 11 - 11:24 PM

Manu Ginobili finished Sunday's easy win vs. Nigeria with 12 points, five rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes of action.

The Argentinian men's basketball team got off to a strong start in the 2016 Olympics, thanks to impressive games from a variety of players including Ginobili, Luis Scola (18 points, nine rebounds) and Facundo Campazzo (19 points, five assists, five steals). Ginobili signed a one-year, $14 million deal with the Spurs this offseason, but he's unlikely to average more than the career-low 19.6 minutes he saw last year.
Aug 7 - 11:25 PM

Manu Ginobili is currently dealing with a sore calf.

Ginobili wrote on his blog that he may only play a few minutes with Team Argentina in Friday's exhibition against Team USA, but this doesn't sound like anything serious. While Ginobili will be back with the Spurs this season, he won't have any fantasy value at 39 years old.
Jul 21 - 1:20 PM

Manu Ginobili has officially signed a one-year deal worth $14 million with the Spurs.

If that $14 million seems a bit high to you, it's because it is. The 76ers reportedly made a strong push for Ginobili, offering him a two-year guaranteed deal that would pay him $17 million during Year-1, so San Antonio was forced to raise their offer in order to retain the Spurs-lifer and 39-year-old veteran. Antics aside, this will more than likely be Ginobili's final year in the league, so don't be the guy that drafts him out of nostalgia.
