Jeff Garcia of Project Spurs had a chance to talk to the San Antonio Spurs guard after he returned to the court to play just 11 minutes on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, in the regular season finale. My feeling seeing him back on the floor and looking healthy will probably reflect in all of San Antonio fans.
After the game, Garcia stated that Ginobili spoke on his hamstring injury and aside from fatigue, he says that he is feeling good.
“Very good. I was a little tired because I’ve been lifting a lot. The point where the tear was feels great,” said Ginobili.
That is good news coming from Ginobili. His return to the court was his first in many weeks. With being away for that long, many of you that play or have played basketball know that being in basketball shape is different than being in shape.
Ginobili continues on with Garcia:
“I missed like 17 days and you don’t get it back because of play. I need to practice. So these next four days will be good for me. I need to play with these guys and go up and down,” said Ginobili.
With the limited return to the court in which he had on Wednesday, the Spurs are now off for four days before game one of their first round match-up against the Lakers, this could be critical.
We would like to hear what you guys have to say on Ginobili returning to the court and do you think these four days off will effect him in game one?
