Manu Ginobili dished out a season-high 13 assists during the Spurs' loss to the Thunder on Christmas, adding 11 points, seven rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer, and five turnovers.
Ginobili has been playing well lately, and is averaging 16.8 points, 6.6 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers per game over the past two weeks. The Spurs play the second half of a back-to-back set tomorrow, so owners will want to check back for an update on Ginobili's status in case coach Gregg Popovich feels like handing out a DNP-OLD to one of his veteran stars.

Manu Ginobili said he feels recharged after sitting out Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

"I was dead [after the Portland game]," said Ginobili. "I ran the video in my head a lot of times and saw the mistakes I made over and over again even if I didn’t want to. I needed to unplug, so I played with my kids and tried to do something else." Ginobili is averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 7.7 assists, and 2.0 treys over his last three games and has turned himself into a must-start any time he is in the Spurs' lineup.
Dec 23 - 10:18 AM

Manu Ginobili scored 19 points with two rebounds, 10 assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

He did suffer a mild injury to his shoulder late in this game, which is concerning considering he has already missed a game due to a shoulder injury. The Spurs are off until Thursday, so this issue might not cost him a game. The DNPs are going to be too annoying in standard leagues.
Dec 23 - 12:39 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play in Saturday's game vs. Dallas.

He played 30 minutes on Friday, so this comes as no surprise. Marco Belinelli and Danny Green will be solid plug-and-play options on Saturday for owners in need of 3-point shooting.
Dec 20 - 1:34 PM

Manu Ginobili may be rested for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

He played 30 minutes in Friday's second consecutive triple-overtime loss, so we saw this one coming. Owners should have a backup plan ready, and will want to check back before tip-off for official confirmation. Marco Belinelli and Danny Green would be solid plug-and-play options if Ginobili sits this one out. Stay tuned.

Manu Ginobili logged 30 minutes in Friday's triple-overtime loss, scoring 11 points on 5-of-17 shooting with five rebounds, five assists and six turnovers.

Ginobili should be considered questionable for Saturday's game in Dallas, but because there's nothing official we're leaving him off the injury report. With Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard out he should be in most lineups when active.
Dec 20 - 2:02 AM

Manu Ginobili said he was disappointed with his last-second shot attempt in Wednesday's triple-overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

Speaking of his buzzer-beater shot attempt that hit nothing but the backboard, Ginobili said, "It was a bad shot. I'm disappointed in the decision I made." Manu's fantasy owners can't be disappointed with his Wednesday output of 21 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and four 3-pointers, but should expect an upcoming rest day for the 37-year-old on either Friday or Saturday.
Dec 18 - 10:52 AM

Manu Ginobili played 41 minutes against the Grizzlies during a 117-116 triple-overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with eight boards, eight assists and four 3-pointers.

He started at point guard in the second half and the Spurs probably wanted this one badly. Ginobili has been effective while he's out there this season, but all the DNPs and low minutes will be annoying. He's almost a lock to rest on either Friday or Saturday.
Dec 18 - 1:05 AM

Manu Ginobili (back) is not listed on the injury report, and will play on Wednesday vs. Memphis.

He was given the day off on Monday to rest his ailing back, but he is good to go in a key matchup with a strong Memphis team. Tony Parker (hamstring) is inactive, so Ginobili will continue to handle the ball more and could see an uptick in his assists.
Dec 17 - 12:41 PM

Manu Ginobili (lower back contusion) will not play on Monday against the Blazers.

He was listed with a shoulder injury last week, so a back injury is a little more troubling. While it doesn't sound serious, this likely means Manu is going to sit out for most of the back-to-back sets. He is not worth using this week. Danny Green, Marco Belinelli, Cory Joseph and Austin Daye all benefit.

Dec 15 - 3:41 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) returned to action on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting with three treys, three boards, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Aside from the random games off Ginobili has been a low-end value in 12-team leagues when on the floor.
Dec 13 - 3:58 AM

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

The Spurs are playing the second game in a back-to-back set, so Ginobili's absence shouldn't shock fantasy owners. Danny Green, Marco Belinelli and Cory Joseph will gain the most in Manu's absence, though he should be ready to resume his typical role vs. the Lakers on Friday.
Dec 10 - 7:07 PM

There is a report of Manu Ginobili (rest), Tim Duncan (rest) and Tony Parker (hamstring) are out Wednesday against the Knicks.

The report was immediately shot down by plugged-in beat reporter Mike Monroe, so fantasy owners shouldn't completely rule out the Big Three. We'll keep our eyes peeled for an update. For now they're questionable.
Dec 10 - 5:22 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) is questionable to face the Knicks on Wednesday.

He has sat out the second half of a back-to-back earlier this month, so he certainly could miss this one. If he's out, Danny Green, Marco Belinelli and Austin Daye will likely help the scoring burden.

Dec 10 - 2:59 PM

Manu Ginobili, who sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, returned on Tuesday with 10 points, eight assists and two steals, but he shot just 3-of-17 from the field.

This was the first time in Ginobili's career that he took at least 17 shots but made fewer than five of his attempts. He was also 3-of-5 at the FT line and he turned the ball over four times, yet he still finished with a +/- rating of +6 in a game the Spurs lost. He'll be eager to redeem himself vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.
