Manu Ginobili (rest) will not travel on Saturday to face the Suns.
He hit the game-winning shot today, so he earned the time off after his line of 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes. The Spurs are also expected to keep 5-6 guys in Texas with Pau Gasol also ruled out. We'll be seeing plenty of the young guys on the road. Dec 9 - 12:43 AM

Manu Ginobili returned to Wednesday's game after a minor knee injury, finishing with 10 points, three rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes.

Manu said that his knee hurt initially, but added that "he doesn't think he'll miss any time." We're skeptical that Gregg Popovich and the training staff will agree with Manu, but he does get one day to rest before the Celtics visit on Friday. We'll add him to the injury report.
Dec 7 - 12:48 AM

Manu Ginobili was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

The Spurs were resting most of their key players, and Pau Gasol didn't return after the first half, but Manu's DNP wasn't announced before tip-off -- he just never left the bench. This doesn't have any lasting repercussions for fantasy purposes.
Dec 3 - 11:03 PM

Manu Ginobili posted 11 points with seven rebounds, six assists and a steal across 25 minutes Friday in Memphis.

Ginobili led all players with a plus-30 rating in this game, too, as it was vintage Manu. He appeared to suffered a minor right leg or lower back ailment last Saturday against Charlotte, but he's apparently not hindered by the issue. This was the 40-year-old's best game of the season across the board. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues, however.
Dec 2 - 12:23 AM

Manu Ginobili scored 11 points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

He did suffer what looked like a minor issue to either his right leg or his lower back, but he did stay in the game and just looked a step slow -- that's not unusual. Ginobili will likely start getting rest soon, so he's really tough to count on in fantasy.
Nov 25 - 9:29 PM

Manu Ginobili hit 7-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal in 26 minutes of Monday's 96-85 win over the Hawks.

Ginobili scored a total of 10 points in his previous two games and has already sat out two games in November. He's going to have some decent games, but they'll be few and far between, with some random DNPs mixed in. He's not someone you probably want to mess with in 12-team fantasy leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:43 AM

Manu Ginobili posted eight points and three rebounds in 18 minutes Friday against the visiting Thunder.

Ginobili bounced back from a poor shooting effort on Wednesday in Minnesota, connecting on 2-of-3 (all from behind the arc). However, it wasn't a terribly clean performance, as the 40-year-old turned the ball over a whopping six times in just 18 minutes. That simply won't do, especially with coach Gregg Popovich having several young bucks at his disposal. Avoid Manu in 12-team leagues at this juncture.
Nov 18 - 12:05 AM

Manu Ginobili came back from a rest on Tuesday and played 16 minutes, finishing with 13 points and a 3-pointer on 4-of-7 shooting.

Manu's scored in double digits four times this season, and taken three nights off, and we're only 14 games into the season. There's no reason to own Manu in 12-team leagues at this point of his career.
Nov 14 - 11:56 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) did not get into the game Saturday against the Bulls, as he posted his third DNP-CD of the season.

The 40-year-old veteran wasn't needed, as the Spurs fired out of the chute for a big lead after the first quarter and they turned the game into a laugher in the second half. The lopsided nature of the score allowed Coach Gregg Popovich to use younger players like Davis Bertans, Darrun Hilliard and Brandon Paul, while limiting his veterans and giving them a much-needed rest.
Nov 12 - 12:43 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

This is the second night of a back-to-back for San Antonio, so it makes sense they would rest their 40-year old veteran. Bryn Forbes and Brandon Paul should soak up most of the excess minutes created by Manu's absence.
Nov 11 - 1:50 PM

Manu Ginobili scored a season-high 18 points vs. the Bucks on Friday with three assists, one rebound, two steals and one triple in 25 minutes.

He occasionally steps into the time machine for a big fantasy line, but he's way too inconsistent and is rested too much to help fantasy owners. In fact, there's a really good chance that he sits out against the Bulls on Saturday.
Nov 11 - 12:51 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) scored six points on 3-of-5 shooting Tuesday, to go with four assists, two boards, two steals and one turnover in 19 minutes off the bench.

Ginobili was back in action following a rest day, but the 40-year-old swingman won't be enough to the box score on most nights to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
Nov 8 - 3:21 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play vs. Phoenix on Sunday.

Bryn Forbes is coming off a nice game and he'll get more minutes with Ginobili sidelined. Brandon Paul should also step up in the rotation, but neither guy is a particularly safe DFS target even with Manu resting.
Nov 5 - 5:52 PM

Manu Ginobili played 27 minutes with 10 points, five assists, four rebounds, two steals and three turnovers vs. the Hornets on Friday.

He was expected to rest on the second night of a back-to-back set, but the Spurs really needed this win because they lost their previous four. Ginobili still has some gas left in tank as evidenced by nights like these, but he's going to be rested too much to rely on in fantasy leagues.
Nov 4 - 12:06 AM

Updating a previous report, the Spurs announced that Manu Ginobili is available for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said earlier in the day that Manu would rest, so it's still not a lock that we'll see him tonight. This is exactly why Ginobili shouldn't be on your fantasy roster. If he's active, Bryn Forbes and Brandon Paul will lose value.
