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