With the Spurs facing the Houston Rockets tonight, here is an injury update on Manu Ginobili and Roger Mason via the San Antonio Express News.
Ginobili who suffered back spasms after the win in Boston over the Celtics and sat out against the Spurs loss to the Nets.
Manu Ginobili passed another test this morning, going through the Spurs’ shootaround while suffering no ill effects on his bad back.
“The decision comes from Pop, but I think I’ll play,” Ginobili said. “If I have a good warm-up, I should be fine.”
Mason, who suffered an injury to his right pinky finger in the first half of the Spurs game against the Nets, is questionable.
Ginobili who has been on a tear recently needs to be fully healthy heading into the playoffs should the team have any chance at advancing past the first round. Mason, who was no where to be seen during last seasons playoff series against the Mavericks, will have another shot at proving his demand for more minutes was warrented. So far it hasn’t been.
