Manu Ginobili is currently dealing with a sore calf.
Ginobili wrote on his blog that he may only play a few minutes with Team Argentina in Friday's exhibition against Team USA, but this doesn't sound like anything serious. While Ginobili will be back with the Spurs this season, he won't have any fantasy value at 39 years old. Jul 21 - 1:20 PM

Manu Ginobili has officially signed a one-year deal worth $14 million with the Spurs.

If that $14 million seems a bit high to you, it's because it is. The 76ers reportedly made a strong push for Ginobili, offering him a two-year guaranteed deal that would pay him $17 million during Year-1, so San Antonio was forced to raise their offer in order to retain the Spurs-lifer and 39-year-old veteran. Antics aside, this will more than likely be Ginobili's final year in the league, so don't be the guy that drafts him out of nostalgia.

Manu Ginobili and the Spurs are discussing a one-year deal in the $10 million range, according to sources of Marc Stein of ESPN.

That's a nice payday for the 39-year-old. He won't be worth drafting in most leagues next season.
Jul 14 - 2:17 PM

Manu Ginobili's contract with the Spurs is expected to be finalized "soon," according to his agent.

Ginobili will likely be re-signing with the Spurs on a one-year deal close to the minimum, and he'll be a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Jul 13 - 1:08 PM

Manu Ginobili has announced that he will return to the Spurs for the 2016-17 season.

Manu took to social media on Thursday to announce his return to the Spurs. "Happy to tell you guys that I'll be coming back to the Spurs for another season," Ginobili wrote. While the soon-to-be 39-year-old can still help the Spurs on the court, his days of being a relevant fantasy player are in the rear-view mirror.
Jul 7 - 9:49 AM

Manu Ginobili's first choice in free agency is to return to the Spurs.

Shocking, we know. "Obviously, his first choice is to come back to the Spurs if we can put a good deal together," Ginobili's agent said. "If you look around the league, there is a lot of money going around for lesser players than Manu. Manu is very aware of what the market looks like, and the Spurs are very aware." It's almost impossible to envision Ginobili in a different uniform, and we're betting that we won't have to when it's all said and done.
Jul 4 - 9:59 AM

Manu Ginobili announced in his personal blog that he intends to play next season.

He's going to be 39 years old on July 28, but he was always leaning towards returning for the 2016-17 season. Ginobili is an unrestricted free agent, but it's still very tough to imagine him leaving the Spurs. Regardless, Ginobili will likely have a limited role next season and won't be worth drafting in most formats. In 58 appearances last season, he averaged 9.6 points, 3.1 assists, 2.5 boards, 1.1 steals and 1.2 treys.

Manu Ginobili is leaning towards returning for the 2016-17 season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

Wojnarowski reports there is a strong belief around the league that Ginobili will be back for 2016-17. The report doesn't include where the 39-year-old is leaning towards playing after declining his player option with the Spurs, but it would be a shock to see him sign somewhere besides San Antonio. While he would help provide the Spurs with a veteran bench presence if he returns, Ginobili won't have any fantasy value in 2016-17.
Jun 28 - 11:16 AM

Manu Ginobili has reportedly declined to pick up his player option worth $2.94 million for the 2016-17 season.

Ginobili will be an unrestricted free agent, but at 39 years old, there's a chance he decides to retire. Ginobili's decision regarding his future in San Antonio will likely depend on what Tim Duncan (who also has a player option) does this offseason. Even if Ginobili does decide to suit up for one more season, he won't be worth drafting in most leagues.
Jun 22 - 10:37 AM

Manu Ginobili has until Wednesday to decide whether or not to pick up his $2.94 million option for next season.

To be clear, he can still sign a new deal with the Spurs if he decides to decline his option. Ginobili will be 39 years old in July, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he decided to retire. Keep in mind that his decision could also depend on what Tim Duncan decides to do with his option.
Jun 18 - 10:36 AM

Manu Ginobili hasn't decided if he will retire this summer.

Similar to Tim Duncan, Ginobili has a player option for the 2016-17 season but will take his time this summer before making a decision. Ginobili will be 39 years old in July and averaged 9.6 points, 3.1 assists, 2.5 boards, 1.1 steals and 1.2 3-pointers in 19.6 minutes in 58 regular-season appearances.
May 13 - 9:44 AM

Manu Ginobili played 23 minutes vs. the Thunder in Game 6, scoring five points with two assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

He started the second half with coach Gregg Popovich looking for more ball movement, but he had a poor game and hit just 1-of-6 shots. It's possible that this was Ginobili's last game in the NBA, though he does have a player option for the 2016-17 season valued at just under $3 million.
May 12 - 11:41 PM

Manu Ginobili started the second half of Game 6 with Tim Duncan moving to the bench.

The Spurs scored just 31 points in the first half and were trailing by 24 points, so a change isn't a surprise. Duncan played well in the first half, but coach Gregg Popovich is looking for more ball movement and spacing in the second half.
May 12 - 9:47 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

Jonathon Simmons and Kevin Martin figure to pick up most of Ginobili's minutes tonight, with Martin being the more attractive target.
Apr 13 - 12:58 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play against the Thunder on Tuesday.

This move comes as no surprise as the Spurs have locked up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. Look for Ginobili to sit again on Wednesday for the Spurs season finale, as Jonathon Simmons and Kevin Martin stand to gain fantasy value while Ginobili sits.
