Manu Ginobili underwent testicular surgery on Thursday, and he's expected to miss at least the next month of action.
First off, ouch. Ginobili took a knee to the lower region from Ryan Anderson during the closing minutes of Wednesday's win over New Orleans, and he obviously suffered a pretty significant injury. At 38 years old, GInobili's absence could certainly extend beyond one-month, so he's a cut-candidate in most leagues as he was only producing late-round value on the season. Danny Green is going to be the primary beneficiary here, while guys like Jonathan Simmons, Patty Mills and Kyle Anderson figure to earn some extended run. Feb 4 - 3:49 PM

The Spurs have not yet established an official timeline for Manu Ginobili.

Manu's groin injury was serious enough to require a hospital visit, and while Spurs officials have yet to offer an official timeline, he's reportedly set to miss the next 4-6 weeks of action. It wouldn't be shocking to see the 38-year-old veteran forced into an extended absence, so he's a cut-candidate in most leagues with this news. Danny Green, Jonathan Simmons and Patty Mills will see an uptick in minutes for however long Manu it out.

Manu Ginobili will reportedly miss the next 4-6 weeks of action with a groin injury.

Ginobili suffered the groin injury during Wednesday's game, and some of his teammates in the locker room took a serious tone when discussing the injury Wednesday night. With Ginobili expected to miss an extended amount of time, there will be more minutes available for guys like Danny Green, Jonathan Simmons and Patty Mills. Manu was only putting up late-round value on the year, so he's not really worth holding onto in most leagues.

Manu Ginobili (groin) is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Ginobili left Wednesday's game after suffering a groin injury and some of his teammates expressed concern after the game. "I don't want to joke with that," Tony Parker said. "It doesn't look good." We'll keep an eye on Ginobili's status, but it looks like we could see more of Jonathan Simmons and Patty Mills on Friday.

Manu Ginobili (groin) did not finish Wednesday's game and went to the locker room, finishing with six points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Spurs aren't giving many details and it looked like he got a knee to the groin at first glance. Even if it's minor, Ginobili will likely sit. That means more minutes for Jonathon Simmons and Patty Mills.
Feb 4 - 2:08 AM

Manu Ginobili conceded that the Warriors are better than the Spurs right now.

There's not much else Manu can say after the 30-point loss to the Warriors on Monday, but the veteran admitted the Spurs have some work to do. "At this point, they are better than us. I’m not embarrassed to face it," Ginobili said after scoring just eight points in the loss. While the 38-year-old is capable of a big game now and again, he's not worth earning in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 26 - 9:47 AM

Manu Ginobili scored 20 points during a 108-05 win over the Lakers on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, five steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers on 9-of-10 from the field.

He was amazing and vintage Ginobili, but he's still not a strong add for fantasy in limited playing time. The Spurs are special and have a point differential of plus-14.5 this year. In their previous 15 games, their entire 15-man roster each had a net rating greater than 12. The Spurs have won 13 games in a row and will be traveling to Oakland on Monday. Clear your schedule for that one.
Jan 23 - 2:20 AM

Manu Ginobili scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting off the bench on Friday, adding five boards, three assists, two 3-pointers and one block in just 22 minutes of action.

Random rest days and low-minute totals limit the upside of Manu, but he's still putting up late-round value on the year behind averages of 10.3 points, 3.7 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.3 three-pointers per game on 46.1 percent shooting from the field and 80.9 percent from the stripe. He's nothing more than a low-end asset in deep leagues, though.
Jan 9 - 2:42 AM

Manu Ginobili returned from a one-game absence and scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with five boards, four assists and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

The veteran will likely have several more maintenance days down the stretch, but he is worth deploying when he is active. Looking ahead, the Spurs' next back-to-back set will be on Jan. 11 vs. the Nets and Jan. 12 vs. the Pistons.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 12:44:00 AM

Manu Ginobili is not on the injury report for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

Ginobili rested on Saturday because it was the second night of a back-to-back set, but he should see his normal workload tonight. Patty Mills and Jonathan Simmons could see a few less minutes with Ginobili back on the active list.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 08:33:00 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

The Spurs are also resting Tim Duncan, but it's an expected move since this is the second game of a back-to-back set. With Ginobili on the shelf, we could see a few more minutes from Patty Mills, Danny Green and Jonathan Simmons. Ginobili will be ready to go for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 01:19:00 PM

Manu Ginobili scored a team-high 17 points on Wednesday, adding four boards, three assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

The Raptors shot 57.8 percent from the field yet San Antonio only lost by three points, partly because Manu and the bench contributed 52 points. Manu didn't play on Monday and occasional DNPs are par for the course, but when active he's been a viable late-round roto value.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 12:28:00 AM

Manu Ginobili was a DNP-CD on Monday against the 76ers.

He was in uniform on the bench, but the Spurs were up 33-17 after the first quarter. Ginobili should be fine for Wednesday against the Raptors. He's a fringe player to own in standard leagues even though his per-game value is almost inside the top 100. Manu is trending down, though.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 09:23:00 PM

Manu Ginobili was excellent on Saturday against the Celtics, scoring 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with seven boards, four assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He had a clutch 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the Spurs, and it appears that the 38-year-old veteran still has some magic left in him. His minutes have been down recently and his next DNP-OLD can come at any time, so he's nothing more than a low-end asset moving forward. Check the injury report prior to Monday's road game vs. Philly if you own Ginobili.
Sat, Dec 5, 2015 11:25:00 PM

Manu Ginobili returned to action on Saturday with 12 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal and four turnovers.

He had the DNP-OLD on Friday and was back to work tonight. Ginobili has mid-round value per game, but the rest has been annoying for his fantasy owners. He's a better player to own in Roto, so you can pick and choose when you use him to not affect your game totals.
