Ginobili, Splitter to miss two weeks


San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is expected to miss two weeks with a strained left oblique.

The Spurs could miss Ginobili and Splitter for the next two weeks.

Ginobili was examined by team physician Dr. David Schmidt and an MRI confirmed Ginobili suffered a left internal oblique strain, he will remain in San Antonio for the remainder of the Spurs’ road trip and is expected to be out approximately two weeks.

Manu was hurt during the second half of San Antonio’s 103-100 victory at the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. The Spurs have won 10 straight heading into Monday night’s game at Utah.

Ginobili was playing in just his fourth game since missing 22 games with a broken left hand.

Meanwhile, forward Tiago Splitter is also expected to miss two weeks with a strained right calf, but he traveled with the team to Salt Lake City and will continue his rehab during the road trip.

Splitter’s inside presence will surely be missed, the Brazilian big has been a key reserve during the team’s winning streak.

  1. I initially thought that both players will miss a couple of days. Two weeks seems to be long but if that is what’s needed to make them healthy for the long run then we have no choice. Hopefully the Spurs will keep winning games.

  2. Bad beak for the Spurs, they can’t seem to stay healthy all together. Good thing they have piled up wins and are currently second in the West.

    Hopefully, Duncan and Parker will keep them stay afloat.

  3. It’s time for the Team CAPTAIN’S to step up for the next couple of weeks and so far Timmy and Tony have and I believe in them to do so. Manu and Tiago should be back in time for the last 10 games. The question is how much are they going to play and how much are they going to produce in the amount of minutes they are going to be given?
