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.

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.

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. 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.

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.
Jan 22 - 12:06 AM

Manu Ginobili scored 16 points with two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

With Tony Parker as the only active point guard, Manu picked up some added playing time as the second unit ball handler. If Patty Mills (calf) needs to miss more time, Ginobili could see meaningful minutes in the mid 20s. Plus, the Spurs do not have any back-to-backs for their three games this week. There are worse players to use this week in deep leagues.
Jan 14 - 9:22 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) had three points, two boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes vs. the Bulls.

Manu has actually flirted with late-round roto value on a per-game basis, but frequent DNPs take a heavy toll on his value. More rest days are a given as the Spurs cruise toward the postseason, and the wire in 12-team leagues should be brimming with superior rest-of-season upside.

Manu Ginobili (rest) will play Sunday vs. Chicago.

Ginobili sat out the past two games for rest purposes, but he'll be back out there tonight. He's only averaging 19.3 minutes a game this season, which isn't enough playing time to trust him in standard leagues.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 03:44:00 PM

Manu Ginobili is not on the injury report for Sunday against the Bulls.

He did not travel for the two road games in Los Angeles and Portland, but Ginobili should be all set for the Christmas home game. He's playing just 19.3 minutes per game this season and doesn't have much value.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 02:09:00 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) did not travel with the Spurs for their two-game road trip.

That means he will not play on Thursday night against the Clippers or in Portland on Friday. Ginobili has played well with 14.5 points per game in 19.0 minutes over his last two. With him out, there should be more Jonathon Simmons while Danny Green should see a little added run.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 04:58:00 PM

Manu Ginobili scored a season-high 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Sunday, hitting 3-of-5 threes with one board, one assist, one steal and one block in just 18 minutes.

The 3-pointers were also a season-high for the 39-year-old reserve guard. The Pelicans came in allowing 116.4 points over their past five games, which is considerably worse than the league-worst Nets defense (allowing 114.6 ppg), and Ginobili was the beneficiary of some lenient defense tonight. He gave a great speech during Tim Duncan's post-game jersey retirement ceremony, but tonight's throwback performance doesn't make Manu a viable option outside of deep leagues.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 11:24:00 PM

Manu Ginobili missed all nine shots from the field and didn't go to the line on Thursday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 18 minutes.

The rest hasn't really helped him much. He's rested in two of the last five, making just 27.3 percent from the field in his other three. Ginobili isn't a fantasy option.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 12:51:00 AM

Manu Ginobili is expected to be rested against the Wolves on Tuesday.

He will be uniform, but the Spurs will only use him in emergency situations. If he doesn't end up playing, this would be his third maintenance day over the last six games.
