During a press conference in Argentina, Manu Ginobili confirmed that his stress fracture is in the same spot as his 2009 injury, however, it is not as serious.
While the Spurs have yet to offer a timetable for Manu's recovery, this type of injury generally takes 2-3 months to completely heal. Manu stated that he would like to wait another 3-4 weeks before deciding if he'll participate in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, but obviously that's looking extremely doubtful at the moment.

Manu Ginobili has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right leg and he's not expected to play for Argentina in the FIBA World Cup this summer.

The Spurs found "the early stages of a stress fracture" during a physical conducted after the season, and Ginobili is in the process of getting a second opinion. The good news is that the 36-year-old is expected to recover in two months, and he should be "fully functional" for the start of training camp.

Manu Ginobili will play for Argentina in the FIBA World Cup in Spain this summer.

He has already confirmed he will be back for a chance to repeat with the Spurs next season. Ginobili will turn 37 in July and the Spurs will continue to rest him during the regular season in preparation for another postseason run. He's not a very attractive pick in fantasy leagues with the DNP-CDs.

Manu Ginobili confirmed that he will return with the Spurs for the 2014-15 season.

"My idea is to honor the two-year deal I signed last year," said Ginobili, who will earn $7 million in the final year of his contract. He said in a recent interview that he hopes to play "one [or] two more years" in the NBA, so he may be looking for another short-term deal at age 37 next summer.

Manu Ginobili is undecided on whether or not he will play in this summer's World Cup of Basketball.

Fresh off the Spurs' NBA Championship, Ginobili said he hasn't decided yet on if he'll play with Argentina at this summer's World Cup of Basketball in Spain but would make a decision by the end of the week. The 36-year-old averaged 14.4 points, 2.0 3-pointers, 3.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.0 steals against the Heat and should be a solid late-round pick in fantasy drafts as long as he decides to continue playing next season.

Manu Ginobili scored 19 points with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and four assists to help the Spurs win the 2014 NBA Championship on Sunday with a 104-87 victory over the visiting Heat.

He scored six straight points to cut into an early Miami lead and he nearly blew the roof off the AT&T Center with a throwdown dunk in traffic. With averages of 14.4 points on 50.0 percent shooting and 4.4 assists in the Finals this season, Manu exorcised the demons of his poor play vs. Miami in 2013. He said in a recent interview that he plans to play "one [or] two more years" in the NBA, and his play on Sunday confirms that he has plenty of tread left on his tires.

Manu Ginobili (foot) is banking on the Spurs' experience as a factor that will help them beat the Heat.

The Spurs enter Tuesday's Game 3 having lost home-court advantage to the Heat, but Ginobili's confidence isn't shaken. "We know they are not unbelievable," Ginobili said. "They are a great team. But we’ve done it before." Ginobili is averaging 17.5 points, 2.5 3-pointers, 3.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, and 2.0 steals so far in the NBA Finals and the Spurs will need him to continue his strong play if they have any chance of de-throning the champs.

Manu Ginobili ran the point for much of Saturday's 112-107 win over the Thunder in Game 6, scoring 15 points with six boards, five assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He hit a huge 3-pointer with less than one minute left, but missed a buzzer-beater to send the game to overtime. Cory Joseph couldn't quite get things going on offense while Patty Mills was a bit careless, so it was Manu's responsibility to handle the ball. If Tony Parker (ankle) needs to miss more time, Manu will have a lot on his shoulders. Game 1 of the NBA Finals will take place on June 5 in San Antonio.

Manu Ginobili was magnificent during Game 5's blowout 117-89 win on Thursday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 19 points with four boards, six assists, three 3-pointers and no turnovers.

The Spurs have won their three games in this series by a total of 80 points, which makes this one of the more puzzling series in recent memory. Ginobili was a surgeon with the ball and the Spurs offense was running like clockwork. The Spurs had an efficient true shooting percentage of 63.3 tonight and are basically impossible to beat when they're at their best.
May 29 - 11:54 PM

Manu Ginobili (foot) is warming up to play in Game 4 on Tuesday.

Contrary to coach Gregg Popovich saying Ginobili is out for the season, the 36-year-old guard will be giving it a go. He scored 23 points in Game 3 and he should be a huge part of the second unit again as the Spurs look to take a 3-1 lead.
May 27 - 8:04 PM

Manu Ginobili (sore left foot) is expected to play in Tuesday's Game 4 in Oklahoma City.

Gregg Popovich continues to be coy about Manu's status, but beat writer Jeff McDonald described the injury as a "nuisance" and it didn't prevent Manu from scoring 23 points in Game 3, so the Spurs' sixth-man should be ready to go.
May 27 - 9:35 AM

Gregg Popovich said after Sunday's game that Manu Ginobili (foot) will "be fine" after leaving late in the fourth quarter, before jokingly adding, "Or he's out for the rest of the playoffs."

Pop laughed at his own joke, which was a take on Thunder coach Scott Brooks' debunked claim that Serge Ibaka (calf) would miss the rest of the postseason. Manu scored a team-high 23 points before exiting with a "lingering foot injury," and we're considering him probable for Game 4 on Tuesday.
May 25 - 11:27 PM

Manu Ginobili sank 6-of-9 shots from downtown to finish the Spurs' Game 3 defeat with a team-high 23 points, four assists and two steals in 24 minutes, but he limped into the locker room late in the fourth quarter.

He scored 20 points in the first half alone, including a very tough 3-pointer just before halftime, but other than Manu the Spurs' offense was stuck in mud all night. They shot 39.6 percent as a team with a mere seven free throw attempts until the game's final minutes, squandering Manu's excellent game in a 97-106 road loss. It's unclear if an injury caused Ginobili's early exit, but we'll pass along any details as they become available.
May 25 - 11:12 PM

Manu Ginobili is averaging only 8.5 points on 26.3 percent shooting vs. the Trail Blazers in the second round, but his lack of production hasn't alarmed coach Gregg Popovich.

"It’s just the way it is, sometimes somebody doesn’t shoot well," Pop said. Manu is a combined 1-of-10 outside of the paint in the Spurs' previous two games, but he'll look to turn things around in Wednesday's potentially series-clinching Game 5 in San Antonio.
May 14 - 12:50 PM

Manu Ginobili finished with two points on 1-of-6 shotting from the field during Monday's Game 4 loss to Portland.

This is the second time in four games that Ginobili has only scored two points, which drops his series average to 8.5 points on 26 percent field goal shooting. "He hasn’t shot it well," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said, "but that’s just the way it is. Sometimes somebody doesn’t shoot well." Ginobili had one of the most productive series of his career against the Mavericks in the first round, so his second round struggles don't look to be something that will last very long.
