Manu Ginobili will return to the San Antonio Spurs' lineup on Saturday in New Jersey after missing more than a month with a broken left hand. Ginobili practiced Friday and will play against the Nets, though coach Gregg Popovich wasn't sure if he would start and says his minutes would be ''not many.'' Ginobili was hurt on Jan. 2 in the fifth game of the season when he reached in and fouled Minnesota's Anthony Tolliver as Tolliver rose to shoot. It was believed Ginobli could miss as much as two months, but he says he's been ready to return for a few days. The Spurs have won six games in a row.
