Manu Ginobili said he is contemplating retirement but will likely wait a couple of months before making a final decision on his future.
Ginobili finished with 10 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, in what may have been the final game of his NBA career. "I’ve been contemplating retirement forever," Ginobili said after the game. "Nothing changed. I’ll let a month or two months go by, and then I’ll see how I feel. I’m not the type of guy that makes decisions on the fly, or when you’re upset or hurt or whatever. I usually let it sink in and see how it feels." Apr 25 - 1:08 PM

Manu Ginobili hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's 99-91 loss to the Warriors, and also had a big turnover with the Spurs down four points inside the final 30 seconds of the game.

His errant pass trickled out of bounds without being touched by a Warrior and Kevin Durant answered with a money jumper and then two free throws to seal the win for the Warriors. Ginobili looks like he's thinking retirement, while Pau Gasol, who is not thinking about shutting it down, as far as we know, might want to rethink that decision after his one-point, six-board performance in just 18 minutes, missing all three of his shots. Whatever Ginobili decides, he's had a fantastic NBA career thus far.

Manu Ginobili was terrific during the Spurs' Game 4 victory, scoring 16 points (5-of-10 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with five assists, three rebounds and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

The veteran went down briefly after banging his knee late in the fourth quarter, but he continued to play and there's no way he's missing Game 5. This was simply the latest clutch performance in Manu's legendary career, and the victory gives Ginobili and Tony Parker 132 playoff wins as teammates -- that's the most in NBA history.
Apr 22 - 6:34 PM

Manu Ginobili (rest) returned to the lineup for Saturday's 116-105 victory against the Trail Blazers and he finished with 17 points.

Ginobili was red hot off the bench hitting 7-of-7 from the floor, including 3-of-3 from long distance. He also chipped in with three rebounds, an assist and a steal with no turnovers and a plus-3 rating. The future Hall of Famer can't still bring it even on the north side of 40.
Apr 8 - 12:15 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) and Kawhi Leonard (return from injury management) are out for Wednesday against the Lakers.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set, so the Spurs will sit out their Hall of Fame guard in a road national TV game. With Ginobili out, there could be a few extra minutes for Bryn Forbes and Dejounte Murray.
Apr 4 - 4:04 PM

Manu Ginobili scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

It's the first time he's hit 30 minutes all season and he was out there for overtime. Ginobili is one of the most unique players in NBA history and his patented Euro step was on display, including a pretty one against Rudy Gobert in overtime. He's a first-ballot Hall of Fame player, but there's not much fantasy value here.
Mar 23 - 11:46 PM

Manu Ginobili ended up with 10 points over 17 minutes off the bench in Saturday's victory against the Timberwolves.

Ginobili hit 4-of-6 from the field and he added 2-of-2 from the free-throw line, and he added three rebounds, three assists and two steals with a plus-11 rating. He has back-to-back double-digit point totals for the first time since Jan. 28-30. He remains far more useful to his real team than he does to fantasy owners at this point of his career.
Mar 18 - 1:45 AM

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play vs. the Rockets on Monday.

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is also sitting out in the first half of the Spurs' back-to-back set. The NBA's front office probably won't be happy about the DNP-CD in a high-profile game, but Ginobili's absence shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups. Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes should pick up extra minutes with Manu out on Monday.
Mar 11 - 6:28 PM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) returned to action on Wednesday with 17 points (7-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

Ginobili looked fine in 20 minutes, which is right around where his playing time has hovered this season. True to form as a veteran leader, Manu called out his teammates afterward for feeling self-pity when LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) left tonight's game early. "It's a terrible mistake [to feel that way]," he said. "We said, 'OK, we're missing a lot of guys,' and we stopped executing when we needed it most." The Spurs need Manu far more than fantasy owners do.
Mar 1 - 1:16 AM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) said he plans to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Ginobili was initially injured last Friday when he took a shot to the chest in a loss to the Nuggets. He was unable to play on Sunday, but is on track to return for Wednesday's contest. Manu will eat into Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills' minutes upon his return.
Feb 27 - 1:22 PM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) will not play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Ginobili isn't dealing with a serious injury, but it doesn't take much for the 40-year-old to hit the sidelines. His minutes will be divvied up between Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Feb 25 - 2:08 PM

Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cavs.

Danny Green didn't appear on the injury report, so maybe he's back to help the backcourt rotation. If Manu is out, that should give more minutes to Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills.
Feb 24 - 4:06 PM

Manu Ginobili (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. Cleveland.

Ginobili had three points, one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Friday, but took a shot to the chest and needed X-rays after the game. He was in obvious pain during a post-game interview, but we should get an update on his status at Saturday's practice. Expect to see more of Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes if Ginobili can't go.
Feb 24 - 12:30 AM

Manu Ginobili is not on the injury report for Friday against the Nuggets.

This confirms that the Spurs didn't think Ginobili's injury is severe. The Spurs have a really tough schedule to finish this season, but they're still going to rest Manu at times to close the 2017-18 campaign.
Feb 22 - 4:25 PM

Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said that the foot injury Manu Ginobili suffered Tuesday night does not "appear to be anything severe."

Ginobili was injured midway through the third quarter of Tuesday's night loss to Denver. He limped to the locker room and was unable to return. However, both the X-rays and the MRI came back negative. "It didn't appear to be anything severe," Buford said. "He got treatment, saw people and then left on his All-Star vacation plans." The Spurs don't play again until next Friday, so Manu will have plenty of time to rest and should be good to go after the break.
