According to Spurs beat writer Jeff McDonald, Manu Ginobili will play tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

Ginobili missed last night’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder with a left thigh contusion. His leg buckled upon colliding with Boston’s Chris Wilcox late in the first quarter.

Still no updates, meanwhile, on whether Kawhi Leonard will return to the lineup for the first time since Nov. 15.
