Manu Ginobili went down at the end of the first half of the Spurs’ 106-88 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday night. Fans have been nervous to hear news of the star shooting guard’s injury, but were relieved yesterday when it was announced that he would only be out for 10-14 days due to a grade 1 hamstring strain.
After a slower-than-usual start to the season, Ginobili has returned to form and is averaging 12.9 points per game, just under five assists per game, and has a player efficiency rating of 20.62. No doubt his performance has helped the Spurs reach their great 29-11 record.
At age 35, Ginobili is one of the older players on an already old Spurs team. Though he has been injury-prone throughout his career, injuries such as this should not come as a surprise considering his age.
Should he take the full projected time to heal, he will miss 7 games. The Spurs will miss Ginobili no matter how long he is gone, but have proven that they can still win without him in many cases. ...

With the scare of Manu Ginobili's recent injury scare, the team will have to adjust a little until the star shooting guard returns to the San Antonio Spurs.
One of the main contributors off the bench is Gary Neal and although he has difficulty producing from the point guard position, he can help the team out making shots.
He's arguably one of the top pure shooters...
