San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has updated his injury situation on his Twitter account.
Breaking of fibers in left hamstring, estimated 10/14 days out (@ManuGinobili)
Manu suffered the injury during the recent win over Minnesota.
With the maximum of two weeks, the Spurs have enough depth to make up for his contributions. He'll likely miss seven games with this timetable, having him return against the Charlotte Bobcats at the latest.
The Spurs also recalled guard Cory Joseph from Austin seeing Manu is out with an injury. However, with the Spurs' great depth at guard position, Gary Neal, Cory Joseph, and Nando De Colo should be able to fill in admirably in Manu's absence. Though no one player can duplicated what Manu has brought the team for years.
The San Antonio Spurs (57-16) may have lost the game last night to the Memphis Grizzlies, 111-104, but the bigger concern is the health of the team.
Already shelved due to injury is Tim Duncan, now add Manu Ginobili to the list.
Ginobili suffered a left quadriceps contusion in last night’s loss to Memphis and though is not serious, Ginobili cannot put his full weight on his leg and is in considerable pain. His status for tonight’s game against Portland is in question.
That’s two All-Stars for the Spurs dealing with injuries. Add the fact the Spurs’ grip on the number one seed is now at four games with the Los Angeles Lakers currently on a seven game winning streak.
The playoffs are right around the corner, and this is the last thing the Spurs needed to deal with.
What do you think Spurs fans?
