Gregg Popovich revealed Sunday that Manu Ginobili’s right hamstring strain that he suffered during Friday’s game against the Clippers is going to keep him sidelined for weeks rather than days and could even cause him to miss the beginning of the playoffs depending on how he responds to treatment.
According to Mike Monroe, Spurs Nation:
“It’s more than days,” Popovich said. “It’s more like weeks, unfortunately. It’s a huge blow for us because he’s the guy that allows our second team to do what they’ve been doing all year long..
Popovich said Ginobili’s response to treatment will determine whether he will be ready to play by the time the playoffs begin…
“It could (stretch into the playoffs),” Popovich said. “We don’t know how his leg is going to react. We’re doing everything we can.”
