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

Date:

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.
Feb 25 - 3:22 AM

Manu Ginobili (ankle) is probable to play against the Clippers on Friday.

He should good to go after an ankle impingement in the final game of the first half. Ginobili is likely to get plenty of rest going forward with the Spurs preparing for the postseason.
Feb 23 - 3:56 PM

Manu Ginobili (left ankle impingement) will not return against the Magic on Wednesday.

The Spurs are up 20 at the time of this news, so being ruled out doesn't really mean much. Ginobili tweaked his ankle on a drive and was down for a couple minutes, but he was able to put some weight on it as he went to the locker room. He'll have the break to get right.
Feb 15 - 8:59 PM

Manu Ginobili rolled his left ankle against the Magic on Wednesday.

He's almost certainly out for the game with the Spurs up big. Ginobili drove to the basket and stumbled over his own foot and it didn't look too bad. Hopefully, the All-Star break will be enough time to get him right.
Feb 15 - 8:51 PM

Manu Ginobili needed just 10 minutes to score 18 points against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding one rebound, one steal and four 3- pointers.

Well, that's efficient. Ginobili joins just Marreese Speights as the only players since 1998 to score at least 18 points with no more than 10 minutes. A hat tip to Ginobili to join Mr. Buckets, but he's not a pickup after this.
Feb 5 - 1:38 AM

Manu Ginobili (back) is expected to play Tuesday vs. Toronto.

Ginobili was rested on the front end of a back-to-back set on Monday, but he should both be back in action tonight without a minutes restriction. Tony Parker (foot) is out tonight, so Ginobili might be able to see his minutes in the mid-20s, although he's that's still not enough time to consider him an attractive option in most settings.
Jan 24 - 5:48 PM

Manu Ginobili (back spasms) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

Ginobili did not play on Monday, although Coach Pop admitted that was partly due to the Spurs wanting to rest their vet. With Tony Parker (foot) ruled out for Tuesday, Manu may see a few extra minutes off the bench.
Jan 24 - 12:24 PM

Manu Ginobili (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

He probably would've rested against the Nets even if he was healthy, but Ginobili isn't 100 percent after tweaking his back against Cleveland on Saturday. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors. With both Ginobili and Tony Parker (foot) out, Dejounte Murray, Patty Mills and Danny Green will all be busy in the backcourt, while Jonathon Simmons should pick up some minutes as well.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Per RotoGrinders CourtIQ, several Spurs are due for increased roles with Parker, Ginobili and Gasol off the court. Kawhi Leonard owns an elite 39.8% usage rate with a 1.40 FPPG mark with all three off the floor, and Dejounte Murray's usage jumps to 28.0%. LaMarcus Aldrige (27.5%), Jonathan Simmons (22.6%) and Patty Mills (21.5%) also own suitable usage rates in that split, and we haven't even touched on David Lee, who is on of the top $/point options on the slate.
Jan 23 - 1:13 PM

Manu Ginobili hurt his back at the end of Saturday's game in Cleveland.

He grabbed his lower back and was in a lot of pain. Ginobili has a slew of back problems in the past, so you can pencil him as a DNP on Monday and possibly beyond. Jonathon Simmons would be worth a look in deep leagues while Bryn Forbes could be in the rotation. This helps Danny Green too.
