San Antonio fans, Manu Ginobili will be returning tonight, according to Dan McCarney of the San Antonio Express-News. He goes on to state that Popovich made it clear that Ginobili will suit up and get some sort of playing time tonight, to get his motor going.
Here is what Coach Pop had to say:
“Manu is going to play a few minutes — very few, but he’ll play,” Popovich said.
This is a good sign for not only the fans but for the San Antonio Spurs as Ginobili has not seen any type of action since his injury.
Also in the article, McCarney stated he was also told my Coach Popovich that Tiago Splitter will not be available for undisclosed reasons.
He will be joining Boris Diaw, and newly acquired Tracy McGrady on the sideline. I am taking this as McGrady will not be seeing any time on the floor.
